The boomerang phaser was not introduced until the third season. When Chakotay goes to the Bridge, the crew should be using the older angular phasers from the first and second season, since they have not yet left the Alpha Quadrant. See more »

Good grief!!! More temporal #&#%(QQ@$)!!
7 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The biggest problem with "Star Trek: Voyager" is that all too often the writers included episodes about so-called 'temporal anomalies'. It seemed like whenever they didn't know what to do, they'd throw out yet another tired episode involving inexplicable situations where time is somehow screwed up. The episode oddly has an overall rating of 8.1 at this time--which is insane since the show is clearly the same tired old crap being hauled out again because the writers were being lazy.

When the show begins, some weird space thingy approaches. Chakotay is zapped and ends up in sickbay--and from then on whenever he moves about the ship, each section is in a different part of time. Why? No one knows and it never makes sense nor is it the least bit interesting...well, except for the part where OLDER Janeway encounters Dr. Chaotica. That is kinda cute. Otherwise, a tedious episode that represents the worst sort of show the series could give us.

HINT: IF the words TEMPORAL or ANOMALY appear in a show, it will undoubtedly suck. Additionally, bringing Seska into the show is a clear sign that it will not only suck but that many fans (like me) will bet REALLY ticked, as that &$R@% seems to keep reappearing all the time for the most contrived reasons.
