Manuvers was a good episode just because it had everyone behaving like they should. Chakotay actually was acting like a terrorist leader rather than the bland boring in the background first officer. DS9's season 2 and TNG's season 7 beautifully set up the very interesting premise and concept of the Maquis. It was very disapointing that Voyager almost never used it and by season 3, they were all just completely assimilated into the Federation crew. The only different being those funny provisional insignia's.
Seska really was a different breed of villain. She wasn't a murderer or a conquering warlord, but just one huge mindscrew. That little pregnacy message was just a WTF?! moment.
