Review : Nicely done. This shows you just how compelling a good conspiracy theory can be. In some ways, that serves to undermine some of the current ones today (I name no names). The fatal flaw in all of them is that nobody could guess that the Voyager could cover nearly 45,000ly in five years (almost half of them in one giant leap in 'Dark Frontier'). Still, it was compelling enough that it almost had me believing that something was going on at one point. This all points to a good performance by Jeri Ryan, which is exactly what we got. On other issues, I liked Tash and his catapult, which might have been a much better way to get home than just flying in the general direction. Once again, Chakotay seems to be the real explorer now, with Janeway the one concerned about deviating from course. That's consistent with the last few episodes, which I suppose is good. It's also interesting how he closed ranks with Torres, and perhaps the other Marquis as well. Still, it all smoothed itself out in the end. Although, I do wonder where that reactor came from . . .

Review : Great episode. I didn't say it was "best" episode, but, it is pretty great. The pacing of any 45-minute episode is a hard thing to write for. Many movies are much better - not because they have bigger budgets or writers - but because they have a longer time to tell the story that needs telling. I appreciate what writers can do in a smaller amount of time - like a Star Trek TV show. They indeed got the story right and the pacing is perfect. I literally got paranoid when Seven was digging up all the tidbits of data here and there. I'd like to know where the idea for this episode originated. Good stuff. Anything with Seven digging up clues is going to be a good thing. Watch it. I know you'll enjoy it.
