First appearance of the new designed phaser rifles. Problem is, how did they get them since they are lost in the Delta Quadrant? They didn't get the new designed uniforms because of their predicament. They kept the DS9 style uniforms throughout the entire series. See more »

Gee! I Thought It Was Kind of Fun
24 August 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I guess I'm a sucker for the episodes where one or two people are faced with saving the whole crew from some invader, bet it Kazon or Bacteria. I though Janeway was a nice copy of Sigourney Weaver here. The Doctor has become a bit of a liability at times because of his newfound freedoms. I also agree that getting home is the primary need, but, by the same token, if all they did was fly through space with no obstacles, it would be rather boring. Those that are so bent out of shape by this better get used to it. There has to be a plot. Now I have not problem with criticism of the crazy medical stuff and the fast creation of antigens and miracle cures. Still, it was pretty entertaining.
