Goofs

When the medieval Protector is dictating his letter for the "Sky Ship" (Voyager) to the Elder, the words are written in perfect English. While it's common for Star Trek aliens' speech to be rendered in English for the benefit of the audience, this rule is not supposed to apply to visual symbols. (Except for everyone's mouth movements: technically all Star Trek aliens should have their voices out of sync like a badly dubbed foreign film, but this would be too distracting and irritating to the audience.) It would have been more interesting and more realistic if the letter were written in some alien script. See more »

This episode is a real grower and is, without a doubt, evidence that Voyager could rise above its predecessors with an intelligent plot.

Fans of The Doctor will get an especially good kick out of this episode as he achieves some sort of humanity. It'll give you a warm smile, much in the way Data's quest for humanity did for many TNG fans.

Daniel Dae Kim's appearance as Gotana-Retz is certainly welcome as is his acting which appears very basic on the surface, yet his style suits the universe so well. I could imagine him being a cast member of a future Star Trek.

For me, the ending is the best part of the episode. It'll make you feel warm, happy and sad. An extremely great story that manages to put itself among the best of the Star Trek episodes.
