I save myself the trouble of dealing with questions like these by saying to myself "It's fiction" and then I watch it until the next episode comes up.

Re: Twisted

They didn't wonder about rationalizing the probe's effects because this was a character driven episode. It's all about how the main characters face death. As long as the show isn't actually terminated, then any nonsense the probe does is all good so long as it's cool. Extras are not wanted because they are a distraction from the regulars. And most of the plotting is aimed at getting the key characters into Sandrine's so we can see how they react at the end.

Re: Twisted

Just watched this again and it still bothers me that only the bridge crew gave a damn and moved away from the anomaly to Sandrines. I mean seriously.....it's just silly....the only real explanation is that the rest of the crew just have bigger balls...those guys in the mess saw the weird wobbly thing coming towards them and just thought....meh....carried on chatting and drinking their tea (hey, we see this kind of crap everyday, just ignore it, i'm sure it'll go away)

Even Neelix got sick of running away from it and decided to just bugger off into the anomaly in the end (then at the end of the episode when asked what happened to him he says...."it's a long story"......i wish he'd said...."i just grew a pair")

Twisted is actually one of my favourite episodes. It basically has the one element that made me love the show more than the other Trek shows. Namely, the fact that the entire crew is together on the ship and there are no planets being visited, no aliens, no communicating with earth....just our little Voyager family, lost in space on a luxury ship where odds thing occur....i like those ones

I also liked the tension between Chakotay and Tuvok

Re: Twisted

Wow, almost two years and you resurrect this thread? Well, at least we're both still around.

I've watched it many times since getting Season 2 a few weeks ago. Those in the crew not already in Sandrine's were told (if encountered) to stay in the Mess Hall or Engineering or wherever when they found those places. They probably went through the anomaly before anyone in the holodeck did.

I'm re-watching Voyager so i'll be posting a lot over the next couple of months or bumping old ones that still interest me before disappearing for another year (that's my MO and i'm sticking to it)

We only saw Baxter being encountered though so there must have been plenty of people wandering around getting lost like the bridge crew. If just 3 or 4 extras could have been at Sandrines too that would have made so much more sense (i think we saw extras in the mess.....why not just use them)

Oh and how did Ayala (whom Tuvok left in charge on the bridge) get to be a lieutenant before Harry...was he in Starfleet previously

Re: Twisted

Also, if the ship was constantly reshaping itself, why did all doors lead to other doors?

Re: Twisted

"Twisted" is a good episode. A little weird but still enjoyable.

It takes place on Kes's birthday which according to my calculations is on 17 December!

Anyone else think it was lame how Kim drags the captain into the holodeck? Throw her over your shoulder and haul, lil man!

That's why he never made lieutenant. Too weak to pick her up and carry in his arms.

Fictional worlds don't need to be consistent with the real world but they could be internally consistent with themselves.

Re: Twisted

Speaking of boobs.

That bare chested fire dancer looked like he could juggle live dogs.

And not those little purse buggers.

Great Danes.

There was probably 40 adventures that could have been solved by that guy smashing through a wall and saying "OOOOOOOOOO yeah!"

But for some reason Janeway kept sending Kim on the away missions instead of the obvious Khanian Superman they had on standby with the rarely ever used B-Team.

Me, on the other hand, always tries to come up with some logical explanation for certain weird events and continuity errors.

Some of it can be found on the Kes Website (link below) under the title "Voyager's Mysteries-and how to solve them".
