Wow, REALLY screwed up here!
14 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The plot to "Dreadnought" is incredibly contrived but it is a good episode. After all, a super-weapon that Torres created back in the Alpha Quadrant during her Maquis days should NOT suddenly appear in the Delta Quadrant--and the explanation for this is rather lame. Regardless, this giant and intelligent bomb is headed towards a nearby planet--one it will likely obliterate unless Voyager is able to stop it. Fortunately, Torres thinks she can stop it...but the process isn't nearly as simple as she thinks. After all, she doesn't realize that Dreadnought has the ability and willingness to lie--even to her, its creator. How all this actually ends up is very talky...very. But it's still an interesting concept and worth seeing because it's rather unique and involves explosions, aliens and the like. It's also exceptionally tense and nail-biting--especially towards the end of the show.
