TNG, The Outrageous Okona...Data tries to understand comedy while the crew deals with the roguish Okona....not much substance there...the episode is total fluff.

I'm a huge TOS fan, but I still feel I should apologize.

Should I assume that Uhura was raped by Lars early on? Only for her to appear later in a perfectly intact and adjusted uniform.

I was going to post the exact same thing about this episode which I watched last night but I was kind of afraid to bring the topic up. It was the first time i ever thought about it and I've seen this episode at least a dozen times if not more.

^^ I think there was some talk of that scene a year or two ago. It's obvious by Uhura's screaming that she's being severely assaulted by Lars as they go to commercial break. And on the return, the incident is completely ignored. Then at the end as Kirk kisses the girl goodbye, Uhura is standing stoically by just in the background. You can almost hear her thinking "Kirk; you m***** f****".

Tonight's episode: "Shore Leave"
Mmmmm. Yeoman Barrows.

VOY 4x03: Day of Honor

Wow. This is a really good episode. Aside from feeling somewhat dissatisfied with how easily the alien beggars get off, though. It wouldn't have bothered me so much if it weren't for the dialogue the lead alien (come to think of it, we only ever see him...) makes about how many of is people would enjoy the chance to pay Seven back for what the Borg did. On its own, it's a fair if terrifying and corrupt line, but there's something about the way he says it that makes me want to punch him in the face, not aid his people.

Ahem, but anyway. The B'Elanna story is really well-crafted and the crew is in top form this episode. Aside from poor Harry, everyone gets a little bit of screen time love and yet the episode still manages to deliver its primary focuses of B'Elanna, B'Elanna and Tom, and Seven, all while juggling the alien plot.

Really impressive. And I was reminded why I loved B'Elanna/Tom as a ten-to-thirteen year old when S4-7 originally aired. They really do have great chemistry, as characters as well as actors. I positively winced in 1997 when it looked like the two of them were going to die out there, unable to at least kiss each other properly after she admits her love for him. I was pretty darn sure they weren't going to die like that, but damn, I was ten.

Well, I winced again tonight, all the same. Excellent resolution with the characters still breathless, and an incredibly satisfying end shot of Voyager coming into view over the glass of B'Elanna's helmet.

Also, props for the B'Elanna/Neelix scene. Heartfelt stuff. This is the kind of episode that feels like the best sort of fan fiction in some ways -- it really took the time to explore a few characters in meaningful ways, and the time dedicated to it felt natural as opposed to somewhat rushed in the typical Trek (TV at large, really) necessity to "get back" to the main event. Most scenes really did feel like they played out in thoughtful ways, yet nothing felt like it dragged.

Again, not totally thrilled with how the alien plot ended, although I'm not saying I'd have genuinely preferred Voyager just blew up a few of the ships, either. Not sure how I'd handle it offhand, but bleh, whatever. Regardless, the episode's a 9/10 for sure.

EDIT: Huh, I had more to say than I'd realized. I think I'll make a topic on the Voyager board, haha.
