Review

Series : Voyager Rating : 2
Disc No : 5.2 Episode : 102
First Aired : 2 Dec 1998 Stardate : Unknown
Director : David Livingston Year : 2375
Writers : Jeri Taylor Season : 5
Guest Cast :
David Clennon as Dr Crell Moset Jad Mager as Ensign Tabor
YATI : The whole premise of this episode is somewhat flawed. Voyager finds it quite acceptable to use Borg technology and information whenever it likes without a thought for the method of acquisition. Now, all of a sudden it doesn't want to save B'Elanna with similarly acquired information. Worse still, the EMH uses Crell Mosset's knowledge to save B'Elanna, and then deletes him so nobody will benefit from the knowledge. So if his decision was that nobody should benefit from the knowledge, why did he not do it straight away and them leave B'Elanna to die? The moral of the episode seems honestly to be that "nobody should benefit from immorally obtained knowledge, except for B'Elanna Torres."
Great Moment : The rush to escape the Doctors slide show led, as it should be, by Captain Janeway.
Body Count : Zero, but the Cardassian doctor is deleted.
Factoid : Actor David Clennon played Lee Silver in "From the Earth to the Moon".
Quote : "Harry, you and I were lucky enough to enjoy the doctor's scintillating exhibition for two full hours. Would it really be fair of us to deny our friends the same unforgettable experience?" - Chakotay to Kim

Plotline

When an injured alien attaches itself to B'Elanna, the EMH creates a hologram of a Cardassian xenobiology expert in order to assist with her treatment. But when she realizes that the man is a war criminal, B'Elanna refuses to undergo treatment from him - and the crew face an ethical dilemma.

Analysis

Yet again Jeri Taylor demonstrates that her ethics and mine are diametrically opposed...
