||Considering all its implied sexism (against both sides), it astonishes me that this episode was written by a woman - yes, I do know how that statement reads. We had a very daft premise, and several gaping plot holes. While Janeway and Co were sceptical, they ignored the fact that someone would have had to fly 72,000 LY to implant an embryo with Kim's mother. Now, that is highly implausible, unless they have some sort of transwarp drive system. Whether you believe it or not, it's worth asking, just in case. Finally, once we work out what really happened, there is no convincing explanation as to how the DNA got into Kim's system, past all the standard bio-security measures. This just seems like a pathetic attempt to update the old story of the Sirens, via many TOS episodes such as "Mudd's Women". If this ever comes on again, I'll switch over.
