Re: Living witness, Implausible?

One fact I found interesting about this episode is that it "proves" something Christopher said in another thread about shared enemies or "The Watchmen plan." If you get two enemies together and give them someone else to hate, they're not going to be suddenly bossom buddies.

I suspect Voyager was initially made the scapegoat for all of the horrific crimes done to the local population because it nicely let off the other race from the hook while still giving the locals someone to hate. They were conveinantly gone so everyone SHOULD have been able to put it in the past.

Except, as Chris says, the fundamental social issues (implied to include economic bias) still remained.

As a result, Voyager being Space NazisTM did nothing to alleviate the situation's true causes.

That's good writing.
