Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 2
Review : I usually have no sympathy with people who impose major decisions on people like Icheb without asking, he has a right to make an informed choice. However, the conflicting opinions of Janeway, Seven and Icheb's parents made for an interesting dynamic in this situation. At least they finally allowed Icheb to make up his own mind, despite the conflicting pressures on him. Manu Intiraymi played the part OK, but was a bit wooden occasionally. I'm not sure how much is inexperience and how much is the character's natural reserve coming through. The pathogen idea just might work as a weapon, with echoes of what Picard nearly did in "I, Borg", although it makes the Brunali look exceptionally ruthless. To use your own son as a Typhoid Mary bioweapon, in fact to breed him specifically for the purpose, is remarkably cold-blooded. However, I have to wonder if the Voyager could not have collapsed the transwarp conduit somehow (remembering "Dark Frontier"). The science fair was a nice little scene, and one that could not possibly have been done without the ship's children, so they played a useful role for once. Verdict, not bad.

Review : Hooray, an episode for Eecheb, surely the most interesting and drama-creating character since Wesley Crusher. Oh wait, people practically loved to hate Wesley, Eecheb just makes people fall asleep. Even his name's boring!
