The elders claim that to get through the biogenic field, one must have no doubt or hesitation, one must believe in making it past the field. Yet when Kes tried to walk through the field, she had no idea it was there and full confidence that she would make it past that particular area, and still she was struck down, an obvious contradiction.

The Doctor: [after elaborating to Kes and Janeway how they have been able to survive the biogenic field] Captain? If there's something about my analysis you disagree with...?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [appearing disappointed] It's a perfectly sound explanation, Doctor. Very... scientific.

Science vs Spirituality
25 June 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Some reviewers before mine are made by what one of the better review author would call "scientifically-illiterate audience" and boy I couldn't say it better myself.

It baffles me how in the 21st century there still are people that would call this mambo-jumbo "One Of Voyager's Most Profound Episodes!" Another one said that it was nice to see that "the captain have to rely on something other than science or engineering to solve a problem". Oh but there is NOTHING else one could rely on to solve a problem other than science. Amazing what people say without even thinking.

The amount of delusion people still live in saddens me a lot. I love Star Trek, Voyager included, but I have to give this episode one (1) star. What a waste of time...
