Re: Voyager again, for the first time

Don't worry about not having seen Amok Time... I'm pretty sure the folks who wrote this didn't either. I guess I'm really one of the few people who has a problem with the whole Torres/Vorik fight thing. Tuvok says she has the right to be her own "defender" and if she loses Vorik gets her... so essentially she's fighting to keep Vorik from raping her.

Paris really is the only saving element of the episode, I did like how he tried to be a gentleman during all this... even when Tuvok says he must "help her." Right... "You must screw this incredibly horny woman, who has no control of her self, Mr Paris. It is the only logical thing."

I get how Vulcans would be standoffish about turning into hormone driven sex maniacs every six years... but by this time, you think they'd all have gotten together to discuss this. There was at least one female Vulcan on Voyager or at least there was at some point.



Wouldn't they have planned this out in advance? Wouldn't that be... oh... logical?
