Thirty Days: A great Tom Paris episode with a sad ending. I was very sympathetic to Tom's cause, and I think it's a real shame that he didn't succeed. I think Janeway was way too harsh on him. Demoting him and sentencing him to thirty days of solitary confinement just seems evil to me. Especially considering how many times Janeway has "broken the rules." What a hypocrite...
Yes but Tom broke HER rules. Janeway just breaks far away starfleet rules (and gives her crew opportunities to object and have it noted). You can't have complete insubordination. I suspect he would have been more harshly treated back in the Alpha quadrant but it would be bad for crew morale to do so.

Counterpoint: A hilarious and witty episode with a terrific guest star. The script was brilliantly written, and Janeway and Kashyk had so much chemistry. The twists at the end of the episode were great.
Absolutely no complaints!
One of many people's top 5 episodes.

FABULOUS froot video:
