I really enjoy the Doctor/Suder/Voyager parts of "Basics," but I couldn't stand the planet-side stuff. Voyager crew vs. Caveman aliens? And then they become best friends because Chakotay saves a girl who is too afraid to step over a lava pit. Oh, and Hogan gets eaten by a giant slug monster! I liked Hogan. I was pissed they killed him off.
..although we haven't seen the last of him.
I thought the crew of Voyager encountering the alien lifeforms and making peace with them was perfect Trek. I also liked seeing the crew adapt to living on a planet without their technology. They had to make use of their resources and work to together, which included learning to work with the other aliens.
