|Guest Reviews :
||The Hirogen station is claimed to use Tylium based power. Tylium is the fuel that the Battlestar Galactica used!
According to "Demon", class Y planets are so dangerous that you can't even take a starship into orbit of one safely. Now all of a sudden the Hirogen are running around without helmets, and Voyager is flying around without any trouble at all.
|Great Moment :
||Nothing really stood out to me in this episode, but the scene where Seven shuts down the hologrid to find dead Hirogen all over the place was kinda spooky. Also, the scene where Iden confesses that he's made up his own religion. It's a great "uh-oh" moment.
|Body Count :
||Forty three Hirogen killed on the station, two of them on screen. A bunch more were killed when the holograms destroyed the Hirogen ship, but we get no body count for it. We see the EHM get killed, but that's just a memory from somebody else. Iden and several Hirogen are killed on the planet.
||Cindy Katz also played Yteppa in the Deep Space Nine episode "Second Skin".
||EMH: "Is there anything in your spiritual programming about making peace with your enemies?"
Iden: "It's difficult to make peace with people whose sole purpose is to kill you."
"How can I punish you for being who you are?" - Janeway, refusing to condemn the EMH for siding with the Holograms.
When Voyager answers a distress call from the Hirogen, she finds a space station with a forest environment inside. Realizing that the forest is a hologram they deactivate it - and find almost fifty dead hunters. The Hirogen have adapted the holographic technology Janeway gave them to create alpha quadrant Humanoids as prey - but to maintain the challenge they made the holograms ever more intelligent and cunning. Now the prey has escaped, and appears determined to exterminate every Hirogen in sight. Janeway pledges to assist the hunters in recapturing their wayward technology - but when the EMH is abducted and faced with the hologram's version of the story, his loyalties are torn as never before. The EMH has sided with the holograms against Voyager, B'Elanna has been abducted and the Hirogen are looking to blast anything that gets in their way... for Janeway it's just another day in the Delta Quadrant.
