||After the last episode, they seem to have worked out how to get a clear message accross this time. The ocean in space looked very dramatic, although I cannot think why anyone would want to strip all the water from a planet unless they wanted to end all life there (Class M to Class H in a few hours). I'm not sure whether Tom Paris was going slightly out of character here. His interest in everything nautical seems to have come out of nowhere, although it fits into the story very well. There's nothing to prevent people having very wide interests (think Picard), but it seems odd, especially as it's never mentioned again. Still, he found himself a cause and stuck with it, and Robert Duncan McNeill played the part very well. There were other highlights, finally getting to meet the Deleney Sisters for a start, after hearing so much about them for five years. Then there was the whole underwater world, which was fascinating and I'm surprised that we haven't seen more marine civilisations in Trek. Verdict, a very good episode. Perhaps we should rename the Flyer the Delta Diver!
