That was a good episode. If they had found a way to somehow lop off some stuff, or even play it straight, I would have watched a 3 hour movie version on it.
Janeway boinked a hologram- I kind of liked that. Because no other captain would seen doing that--maybe Riker, but the others were to high and mighty.
One of things I like about Janeway.
Janeway falling in love with alien who turned out to be using her--didn't get it as much, he played her, and she couldn't see it? Nah, Janeway would have seen through his ruse- somehow.
Chakotay and Janeway-there was a awkward tension in that situation. Alone, possibly for the rest of their lives, sharing a room, all that sexual tension--I wished they would kissed and got close to doing something, then stop themselves, and promise themselves to forget the whole thing--ala Tasha and Data.
