Takar: You're not behaving very rationally.
Captain Janeway: That's what you were trying to accomplish, wasn't it? Hm? Pumping up my dopamine levels to push me to the edge, keeping me awake for four days straight with the constant pain of your devices drilling into my skull? Well, this is the culmination of your work, and guess what - you're gonna be right here to collect the final data.

One of the best Star Trek episodes period
10 March 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I still remember the chill I got watching the moment the episode was first broadcast on TV and ***SPOILERS*** Seven of Nine walks the deck with her adjusted vision and can see the aliens monitoring the effect of the devices on the crew.

It genuinely creeped me out; it was a big shock and I remember the feeling because it came out of nowhere and I was not expecting it! Very well done!

Janeway got the best line as well: ***SPOILERS*** "These lab rats are fighting back". Captain Janeway played the migraine afflicted captain very well, being irritated about everything and losing her cool, and her solution to the problem had her kicking ass all over the place.

The Tom Paris/B'Ellana Torres romance got kicked into high gear as well, which brought some entertaining character developments, and the doctor and 7 had some good moments as well.
