Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 4
Review : Very clever and very confusing. It took quite a lot to keep track of all the timelines. The way Seven of Nine sorted it out, rather messily, and then Janeway fixed the timeline completely, was curious as well. It's also puzzling how Braxton changed from his appearance in "Future's End", really meaning 'why didn't they hire the same actor?'. Still, Bruce McGill was convincing in the role. We also had yet another 'ship death', more bizarre than spectacular this time with the ripple effects around the explosion. In terms of story quality, we seem to be alternating between good and bad. No series ever maintained total consistency, but it's odd how it happened here. Still, certainly a good and watchable episode.

Review : I have to agree with Indefatigable here. It was all very confusing. They go from 2371, to the 29th century, then BACK to 2375, then BACK AGAIN to 2375, etc. Still, a pretty good episode. I liked it, especially seeing the USS Relativity. It's nice to know that Starfleet would STILL exist in the 29th century, AND that they would design ships like that. ONE question DOES nag me though: We see the Relativity have a registry of NCV-474439-G. I wonder exactly just which Enterprise would exist, and what THAT ship would look like ..... alas, we will never know. Still, pretty good, except the nitpicking jumps through time ....
