Lieutenant Cary brings back a bag of apples to eat. Neelix needs to inform him that they are poisonous. A simple tricorder scan, which one would think would be mandatory when gathering food on an alien world, should have revealed the fruit to be poisonous. See more »

The Seska episode
12 January 2012 | by ashleybmeyerSee all my reviews

Another murder-mystery-style episode with Tuvok as a featured sleuth.

The most awkward fight scene in the history of Voyager, involving two Kazon guys, and a Tuvok and a Janeway.

But this is made up for by some quality, intense Janeway-decision-making scenes, and Chakotay's first remotely romantic scene in the series.

And in spite of whatever we might thing of Seska, she makes a kind of actually really compelling argument to Janeway in one of the final scenes.

As usual, best embodiment and delivery come from Janeway and Torres, with Seska's and Carey's deliveries being sometimes painful.
