Goofs

When Janeway joins Seven in the cargo bay 11% of the particles have been destroyed. 70 seconds later and with no break in the scene, it's at 18% and Janeway says "this could take hours". However at that rate, it would take only around 15 more minutes. See more »

Odd but not bad.
23 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Omega Directive" is an odd episode, as Captain Janeway sure acts strange compared to her usual touch-feely character. When the show begins, Janeway is very secretive about something that's occurred nearby. It soon turns out that the so-called 'omega particle' exists here and this material is considered so destructive and deadly that ALL Starfleet captains have been secretly ordered to destroy it if they encounter it! And, more interesting, they are to ignore the Prime Directive--something you could never see Janeway doing. The problem here is that Janeway needs Seven of Nine's help- -and the Borg see this particle as perfection and the closest thing they know of as a god.

The best thing about this episode is that it's different. It's a bit cerebral but I could accept that. Worth your time.
