I thought the ending, with Kes leaving the ship and transforming, felt a bit rushed, but it was still effective.
I liked it back when I first saw it.

Since that time, I've come to realize that the ending is such a blatant rip-off of the ending of Babylon 5's "Mind War" that it's not even funny. They could have at least tried to hide it....
Probably because they're imitating the X-Men's "Phoenix Saga" which predates all of that. You know, the young girl telepath who is transformed into a powerful psychotenetic who saves everyone by sacrificing herself and flies into the sun.
Once again, not referring to the generic human-becomes-energy-being plot.

I'm referring to the specific way the scene plays out in two particular episodes. It's almost identical, specifics of set design and FX technology aside.
