||This must go down as one of the most almighty send-ups of all time. It went for the dated stuff in a big way, but also contained plenty of self-references (the planets all looking the same, renaming all the technobabble and even the silly outfits) and was perhaps having a go at sci-fi in general. Perhaps Voyager will look as dated as Captain Proton in fifty years' time. The cast obviously had great fun with it, and I particularly liked Kate Mulgrew playing Janeway, playing Arachnia. Despite her initial reaction, it seemed that Janeway was actually beginning to enjoy herself at the end. The serious side of things seemed a bit strange, and I had to wonder why they didn't line up all the shuttles (however many they've built now) and tow the ship off the 'sandbar' stern-first, a-la "Similitude". A mention of that would have been a good idea, just to say it wouldn't work. Finally, Neelix gave us confirmation that the ship really does have lavatories - which should be called 'heads'.
