Lost In Space
2 February 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

From the moment the episode begins, it's obvious that something is up. The tempo is changed, and there's a sudden sense of Purpose, and Urgency, while great liberties are taken with plot lines and characters...

Kes, who has all but faded out of existence, is suddenly back with a vengeance, her vaguely-defined and mostly-ignored powers suddenly turned up to eleven, for no particular reason other than setting up Jennifer Lien's exit. The Borg are back, just in time for the season finale, but more alarming is the appearance of a new, deadlier alien species.

In "False Profits" Janeway lost on opportunity to get home because she had to interfere with two small-time Ferengi hustlers... here she is willing to form an alliance- and share technology with- the Borg, all for a chance at getting home. Will the real Kathryn Janeway please stand up? In a bad process-shot Janeway visits the Borg ship for a cup of coffee and to beg for help. Not exactly Kirk, is it?

We end with a "To Be Continued," our characters morally-bankrupt, broken and helpless... adrift and alone... It reminds me of the "Rocky Horror" finale:

"And crawling

On the planet's face

Some insects called the human race

Lost in time

And lost in space

And in meaning..."
