||I spent the first five minutes of this wondering what the heck the Devore were looking for. They're clearly more paranoid than hateful, and that probably explains everything about them. Kashyk may have been a treacherous creature, but at least he had a good taste in music, and Mark Harelik put in a half-decent performance. He got the look on his face just right in the last scene, a scene where Janeway was clearly enjoying every minute (I understand that this is Kate Mulgrew's favourite episode). Torat, with his pump-up nose, was fairly amusing. It's curious that none of the Devore noticed Tuvok standing on the bridge in the last scene. Why not have him, Vorik and the Betazoid as the shuttle pilots? The one thing missing is an explanation as to why the Devore are so scared of telepaths. They don't like them, but why? Verdict, not bad.
