Review : I wonder if the writer is a fan of Agatha Christie. This was very much like a Poirot story in several ways. "A Matter of Perspective" has a roughly similar plot, with Tolen Ren taking the place of Nel Apgar, but has fewer Agatha Christie elements. Lidell Ren was very much like many of Christie's female characters, a flirtatious woman in a mismatched marriage who showed a distinct lack of grief at her husband's death, and the way she led Paris on is noticeable as well. Tuvok produced the classic 'Poirot seminar' at the end, pulling out the supposedly convincing (but decidedly thin) piece of evidence at the end. Under Earth law, this would have led to an appeal and months of waiting for the new case to come to trial, but the Voyager cannot hang around for that long, so we won't be tied down in the technicalities. Anyway, in general the acting was a bit stiff, but not all that bad, and the plot made rough sense. Verdict, OK, but not exactly original.
