I actually avoided that part of it because I didn't want to read any spoilers about Barge of the Dead, but now that I've seen it I can go back and read the rest.
The sad thing about Barge of the Dead
is that it could have been even better, but RDM walked out during production. It still ended up being a good B'Elanna story, but TBTB stuck their fingers in the pot. RDM didn't like that.
Who knows what awesome episodes in seasons 6 and 7 we could have gotten had RDM stayed on board.
