Did You Know?


Gedrin's statement, "When it rains, do you run from doorway to doorway, trying to stay dry, getting wet all the while, or do you just accept the fact that it's raining, and walk with dignity?" paraphrases a quote from "Hagakure" by Yamamoto Tsunetomo. This book is considered the most famous written work regarding samurai philosophy.

One translation of the original quote is as follows, "There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you will still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything." See more »

Another case of unintended consequences
1 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, Voyager is thrown into the atmosphere of a dead planet. How did this happen? A xenophobic species caught them in their space and refused to discuss the matter--tossing the ship onto the barren planet. However, Seven makes an interesting discovery-- many, many people in suspended animation! In fact, these folks have been stored her for almost a thousand years. Naturally her inclination is to be helpful and wake them up, but it's a case of unintended consequences, as these sleeping folks are FAR worse than the people who tossed Voyager there in the first place! And to defeat these sleepers, the xenophobes and Voyager might just have to work together.

This is a neat episode. Once again, it illustrates that if Voyager JUST focused on getting home, everyone's life would be a lot better! Dang galactic do-gooders!!
