Goofs

When the cadet takes a holoimage picture of Boothby and Chakotay, Boothby kiddingly tells her not to cut of their heads. We see through the viewfinder's image that she does cut off the top of Chakotay's head. Yet later, when the captain and others are reviewing the pictures, we see all of Chakotay's head. See more »

My Favorite Martian Meets 8472
4 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is an interesting episode in that it never has its principles come to blows. It is more about posturing and trying to prevent a horrible consequence. Janeway and the Voyager crew move in on a San Francisco recreation of Species 8472. They are interested in the plans of this group, the one they attacked several episodes previously. Ray Walston appears as the leader of this species. The whole thing just is to pat and easy and hence my criticism.
