..there's one HUGE critical flaw that, if one were rating an ep, knocks a whole star off.
"You've tempted me with that before. We're not looking for a quick fix. We'll get back through hard work."
Oh BEEEE ESSSSSS. In "Deathwish" it required her lying or compromising her morality. Fine. I can understand that.
Here...if you want to say Q's plan simply won't work, or it will make things worse, that's fine. But spare me the B***S***. Janeway should be perfectly willing to endure a night of cosmic copulation or spare some DNA to get her crew home without any crap about taking the easy way home.
Aside from that, I liked the ep fine.
