Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager
I just finished The Chute and have an observation that, while not specifically continuity-related per se, is still worth mentioning: watching that episode after having watched The Undiscovered Country and Flashback makes its events resonate deeper because a lot of parallels can be drawn between what Kirk and McCoy experience in Rura Penthe and what Tom and Harry go throw in the Akritirian 'Chute Prison'.
