Yet when Torres commits a crime, they arrest her and detain her until her sentence can be carried out. See more »

The Thought Police are here!
21 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Voyager visits a nice planet for some shore leave and to resupply. The folks on the planet are very thoughtful and kind and can read thoughts. Everything just looks peachy until a thoughtless local bumps into B'Elanna. Not surprisingly since she's half Klingon, she is angry but quickly gets hold of herself. The incident seems like no big deal. However, moments later, the same guy who bumped into her begins beating the snot out of another person! Apparently, B'Elanna's violent thoughts contaminated this local and now B'Elanna is under arrest for her thoughts! The penalty involves some sort of brain surgery to purge her violent thoughts! However, when Tuvok digs deeper on his own, he discovers a seamy underbelly in this supposedly idyllic world.

This is a strange episode--and I don't mean that as criticism. Its unusualness is a big plus--and keeps the show fresh and interesting. Worth seeing and well written.
