MACROCOSM - 3x12 - 3/5

I've always had a soft spot for TNG's "Genesis", despite it being stupid as hell. So when Voyager does an episode in an almost identical vein, I am engaged, if only on a superficial level. What appeals to me is the situation; coming back home to Voyager to find everything's turned to shit, the crew infected and being harvested by bizarro space-virus-bug-things. It's all fairly brainless but an enjoyable action romp nonetheless and I guess it's cool to see Janeway swashbuckling all over the ship, kicking ass. There is very little to comment on, especially since there are long stretches of scenes with no dialogue and just dramatic music, sound effects and camera work, but it all comes together reasonably well and as I said, I'm a sucker for shit like this, so perhaps I'm scoring this higher than it really deserves.
