When I saw that ep recently (one of the Basics
two-parter?) I thought: wtf? I do think Beltran/Chakotay is quite good when he's squaring up against Janeway, as in Scorpion
Just started rewatching S5 and shocked that couldn't remember some of the episodes. Only abiding memory from the first couple I've watched is Janeway seeming ever ready to launch torpedoes.
