Excellent!
21 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Scientific Method" is a fantastic episode--so good that I almost gave it a 10. When the show begins, Captain Janeway is obviously under a lot of stress and the Doctor is concerned about her. However, instead of things getting better, they soon get much worse. Various crew members start undergoing strange genetic transformations--things that cannot be explained by a virus or other natural illness. When investigating, Torres and the Doctor realize that there is some alien presence aboard--and it seems to be the source of the problems. But, Torres and the Doc are disabled by the force before they can alert anyone! However, the Doctor, while disabled, is able to send himself into a holodeck and contacts Seven of Nine. Can she manage to help him determine who is doing these awful things to the crew, why and manage to get them off the ship?

This is a very creepy and original episode. The completely dispassionate and amazingly amoral 'scientists' are a really interesting lot--and the show is filled with great visuals and originality. Well worth seeing.
