Review : This isn't exactly new (it reminded me very much of a Space 1999 story) nor is the idea of one or two crew members being impervious. Still, it's done fairly well, and the solution makes sense. Quatai was fairly believable, but not especially original. If he ever wins, he's going to need one heck of a wall to hang the trophy on. I think we saw a little too much of Naomi Wildman, without any explanation of why she was not affected. Seven I can understand because of her Borg implants, but little Naomi just because she did not really want to go home, that's a bit unbelievable. There's also the question of what the creature lived on when it could not get starships. Spacefaring organisms? OK, it was well-produced, but not very original and a few plot holes.

Review : Easily one of the more memorable Voyager episodes with a terrific sense of atmosphere and a guest alien-of-the-week who comes aboard Voyager WITHOUT the intention of taking over the ship or killing the crew! How often do we see this? Almost never. The cloud alien has always seemed nightmarish to me and, when done right, the "handful of crew members save the ship" can make for good character drama, especially by making Voyager seem large, empty and therefore creepy. I loved the idea of the "Captain Ahab" hunter whose existence is bound to the larger entity (surprised nobody seems to have made the Moby Dick connection). I'm not sure what episode the other reviewers were watching as I cannot understand why this would warrant any less than four stars.
