Review : A very good episode, with refreshingly original ideas and some great character work. Also, look at the bridge of the Dauntless: Why doesn't every starship look like that. On the downside, however, there are a few logical problems with the Quantum Slipstream, and Arturis' plan. Overall though, this is a solid story all round.

Review : So here it is, Hope and Fear, one of the most evocative episode titles for one of the best episodes in the series. I've got to wonder about the wisdom of allowing the Borg to assimilate such technology as the Dauntless, although I suppose they already have their own transwarp technology. While you could argue that Voyager's crew should trust absolutely no-one from the Delta Quadrant (only Kes, Neelix and Seven seem to be safe to have on board!), the poor "alien of the week" actually has a brilliant motive, he doesn't just shoot at Voyager because they're there. This is one of the only times we see repercussions of previous actions in Voyager. Finally, as for the endless online discussions about the registry of the Dauntless, it seems far too much is being made of a non-issue; it is never stated on screen why starships have the registry numbers they do, so complaining about something that may have been explained in some interview somewhere at some point in the distant past has got absolutely nothing to do with this episode. It would be supremely nitpicky to re-dub this with "Hey! That sounds like the registry to the Enterprise!" or some such meaningless trivia.
