Good idea, great performances but a bit too melodramatic
31 July 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

With Seven of Nine's cortical node failing she and the Voyager crew fight for her life.

This was an excellent idea that could have made for a classic medical thriller but unfortunately it suffers some imperfections.

The main one being the direction of the episode is more towards emotional melodrama than anything else. Whilst there is a requirement for this in an episode about someone dying I personally would have placed more emphasis on the search for a solution. This would also be more fitting for the Seven of Nine character.

On a positive note, all the emotional scenes require some of the best characters to have decent screen time and the actors to showcase their talents. There is also a good sequence involving Janeway, Tuvok and Tom on a mission to retrieve a new cortical node.

Enjoyable episode but personally I would have done it slightly differently.
