Just curious if this episode is well liked amongst Voyager fans. The reason I ask is because I listen to a Voyager podcast each week and this weeks episode was all about rewriting Workforce. The three hosts pretty much said this episode was boring or just didn't work, and that really surprised me because I remember thinking it was probably Season 7's best set of episodes.
I ended up watching it again tonight (Admittedly, it's been a long while) and it still holds up, probably more today as a commentary about labor shortage and drafting a workforce. There was a movie quality to this episode, vis a vis Janeway's relationship with Jaffen or the conspiracy plot, or just getting the crew back on the ship. I really enjoyed this story and was wondering if I was in a minority. In terms of two parters and season 7, I liked these episodes more than I liked Flesh and Blood.
