[Chakotay has gone off on a suicide mission, asking Voyager not to try a rescue attempt]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: My gut tells me we should go after Chakotay. But my better judgment... tells me we should honor his request.
Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres: I would never want you to ignore your judgment, Captain. But let me ask you this: in your judgment, how would the loss of our First Officer affect this crew? What would it do to the morale on this ship? Maybe this is an instance when your gut is giving you better advice.

Just shoot Seska in the face and be done with it!
13 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Leave it up to "Star Trek: Voyager" to once again take an excellent plot idea and make the least of it. So is this limp follow-up to the defection of Seska. It should have been excellent but it left me wondering why it wasn't better.

When the show begins, the Kazon appear and disable Voyager. During the ensuing mêlée, the Kazon steal one of the ship's transporters. Well, this fight went too well for the Kazon and someone had to have helped them plan this attack--and that someone must be the traitor Seska. The plan is to track her and her Kazon allies down and recover the transporter, as this Federation device could throw off the balance in this quadrant. However, instead of working as a team, Chakotay gets all macho and defies orders--going off on his own to recover the device. This is stupid but what is worse is that he succeeds in destroying the transporter--and then, inexplicably, surrenders to Seska. Why didn't he shoot her in the face? He clearly could have easily done that--and she IS trying to give the Kazon technology regardless of the consequences. What follows is a typical Voyager plot--one where miraculously everything works out just fine.

The bottom line is that the plot was generally good but often made little sense. Too bad, as the show could have been very good but again and again, the show seemed to take great situations and make the least of them.
