Re: Voyager again, for the first time

well the Chute.

First of all, I'm not sure I saw a lot of the start of Season 3 when it was first on, because this is the second episode in a row that I have absolutely no memory of.

Not that I think The Chute would stick in one's mind anyway. It feels like a retread of about 3 other episodes from Voyager's first two seasons. Locking the Voyager crew up on some crazy misunderstanding is becoming a bit of a tried trope.

Also the complete lack of exploring what is wrong with the alien culture. It's looked at sideways and never addressed, which just seems lazy. I did like Janeway's refusal to speak to the two 'terrorists' on first capture, but after the Ambassador says they won't release Paris and Kim anyway I expected a conversation.

It feels like a very rushed episode to meets the number of shows they have to make.
