The Doctor is put through the mill again
13 August 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

The Doctor and Janeway get abducted and The Doctor is made to steal Voyager's warp core.

This one took a battering from other reviewers but I personally didn't find it that bad. I have noted during other reviews that a lot of people struggle with suspension of disbelief, but for me if the episode is pretty well made, I forgive those elements.

The plot is pretty daft, but I went along with it and was entertained by the performances and the way events unfolded. I also liked the sequence where the warp core is ejected from Voyager.

When The Doctor does his confession scene near the end I laughed, but thought to myself, I wish the writers would stop humiliating such great character so much. On the other hand, I suppose what makes Robert Picardo such a good actor is he can behave so pompous and manic, yet you still like him.

I don't think it this one is for everyone, but if you don't take it too seriously I think you will enjoy.
