Re: My first voyage with Voyager

Being a Paris fan, I've always liked this one -- from the flirty scene in the mess hall (also the little detail of Tom being out of rations; we don't get enough reminders of the logistical problems caused by them being stranded in the DQ) to the delicious irony of both him and B'Elanna being the ones to give the Doc advice on family dynamics. After all, they're the ones with the most childhood baggage on the crew ...

Liked the Tom/Doc dynamic, too -- funny how the Doc keeps turning to his assistant for advice and help (see also Lifesigns, later stuff you haven't seen yet) and how Tom delivers. Their back-and-forth of mutual disdain and reliance continues throughout the series, and it's a lovely thing to watch, much under-appreciated.
A tidy home is the sign of a misspent life.
