Not what you'd expect in a season finale
6 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

According to IMDb, "Learning Curve" was not meant as a final episode of season one. It's very clearly the case, as usually on all the newer Trek series there is a big finale where something HUGE occurs- -and it often comes in the form of a two-part episode. Here, however, the show just seems like another episode of "Star Trek: Voyager" and nothing more. This isn't so much a complaint--I just don't want the viewer to assume the show is anything more than it is.

When the show begins, Captain Janeway is in the holodeck doing some stupid program that looks a lot like "A Turn of the Screw" and "Jane Eyre". Fortunately, something interrupts and the plot begins in earnest--a meeting with her, Chakotay and Tuvak. It seems that Tuvak is concerned because several of the Maquis crew members suck when it comes to discipline. The solution they come up with is to put selected members, the problematic ones, through a boot camp style program so that they learn discipline and teamwork. There is a serious problem with this, however, as the four folks chosen really, really suck. What's worse, the teacher assigned to these folks is Tuvok--and, it turns out, he ALSO sucks! How will they work all this out in order to make them all team players?

This isn't a bad fact, it's pretty good. But don't expect a big battle or the like.
