Review : An episode I genuinely liked. For a start, it was interesting to see the combination of real science and Trek science blending almost seamlessly (if you ignore the 'gravimetric radiation' - they should have called it graviton radiation, which is harmless but creates gravity). I don't know if dark matter forms into asteroids, but it must form into something. Still, it was not just about that, it was about the pioneering spirit of real-life exploration. It's also curious to see how much Chakotay has changed in the last five years. Back then, he was determined to get home as fast as possible; now, he is a keener explorer than Janeway. He also managed to bring the Delta Flyer back almost in one piece! The scenes with Kelly in the Aries IV were nice as well (although the misspelling of Ares IV was obviously wrong). I especially liked the moment he saw debris from another ship, and realized that Humanity is not alone. It might have been a fold in the metal, but I think I could make out the Vulcan IDIC symbol on the debris, which would be a nice touch if it was there. Seven's change of heart in bringing back Kelly's body and the data made sense as well, showing how something like this can affect anybody. Kelly's funeral was a moving scene, although it was slightly ironic that they brought him back only to fire him out into space again. This should go down as a tribute to the real explorers of space.
