FALSE PROFITS - 3x05 - 3/5

I don't really have much to say about this episode, as it's pretty run of the mill stuff but it's fun to see Ferengi again, especially in a nice little nod to some Trek continuity.

Now for the next few episodes of Voyager I want to keep an eye on the handling of The Doctor, and see whether the writers pay respect to his character regression in "The Swarm". Now in this episode, it seems they play things safe as there's no evidence of the Doctor's character being changed either way. All he gets is some generic lines of medico-babble which anyone could have said.

Of course, Voyager doesn't get home. I find this episode fun, harmless and maybe a little boring but the fact it ties up a loose end established years ago in TNG and features a familiar alien, bumps it from a 2 to a 3 for me.
