Review : Firstly, the title was a bit odd considering that there's nothing particularly 'Human' about several of the main players here (apart from Torres, who is half-Human). Still, it's a good enough episode, but I think the message got a bit scrambled somewhere. There are quite a few problems, such as the fact that Ensign Kim could not duplicate the Doctor, but could pull the Moset hologram out of the hat in minutes. Mind you, the writers pulled Tabor out of the hat as well, rather than bringing back Gerron or someone else we had seen before. The crustacean that attacked Torres was done well enough, but still looked a bit unconvincing. It tackled the debate fairly well, but I think the Doctor ended up by doing the right thing, then the wrong thing. Seven of Nine seemed to see it backwards (remembering how often we have seen the Voyagers using Borg technology). Still, if we went down Tabor's route, all those deaths would have been for nothing. Research in Nazi concentration camps may have killed hundreds, but it helped develop the survival suits that have prevented just as many deaths in icy waters (something to think about next time you put one on). Carry it to extremes, and you would have to pull up the Autobahns as well. Delete the Moset hologram if you like, but hold onto the research data, that way the victims will not have died for nothing. Still, whatever the message, Robert Picardo held the show together very well, and David Clennon was very convincing as Crell Moset, who really seemed to think he had done the right thing. Not sure how to rate this, but I think I'll be harsh and remove a star for the mixed messages.
