||They've written off YET ANOTHER shuttlecraft, but we can't really blame Paris for that, because of the subspace effects. The anomaly idea does partly make sense, although I always thought it worked the other way, time running slower in high gravity, not faster. Still, this is a subspace anomaly, so they can do as they wish with it. Really, they did two things right here. Firstly, a bit of genuine character development for Tuvok. You got a bit more of a sense of the man behind the mask here than in most episodes. Secondly, the relationship between Tuvok and Noss, reminiscent of Spock and Christine Chapel in some ways. Their farewell in the transporter room was done very well. The parallels with the young Tuvok did make sense. Also note the 'no need to insult me' remark, just like Spock. Overall, not a bad attempt. One thing worth remembering is that Noss has been absent from her homeworld for about a month, but is fourteen years older. Anyone who knows her will be very confused.
