Review : I really liked this episode; one of Voyager's best to date. The concept of a drone/weapon/ship like this it excellent, and it's the way that warplane design seems to be going today. There was something about B'elanna and the Dreadnought (which was really Roxann Dawson talking to herself) that reminded me of Dave and HAL in 2001 - the way the weapon answered back politely, and tried everything to save itself right up to the end. Even the solution was vaguely similar. It's slightly odd that Janeway can blow up her ship without anyone else to confirm the order, and goes against almost all established procedure. Still, I'll let them off that. I'd like Lockheed's designers to watch this episode before they design any more UAVs, maybe they'd understand why unmanned weapons are very bad idea. Too easy to reprogramme.
