Lt. Stadi would have been helpful to the mission had she not gotten herself killed in Caretaker. She was a Betazoid, too.
Stadi would have been helpful to the show, imo. Alicia Coppola was smoking hot in her limited scenes.
I got my Alicia Coppola fix in Jericho. Then they cancelled that show. Idiots.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Latent Image: I'm so tired, I can hardly type......just wanted to say I enjoyed this episode. Good development for the doctor, good moral dilemma(s), fine acting, I enjoyed the flashbacks too. My only gripe is the way Janeway dismissed the doctor as "just a hologram" at the beginning in her scene with 7 of 9. That was definitely not in her character, and I thought everyone had moved past that issue four seasons ago.
All in all, very good.
7/10

Re: Does It Get Better???

I think "Latent Image" is a fantastic episode, one of my all time favorite in Trek. No matter how annoyed I would get with Voyager's flaws, its episodes like "Latent Image" that remind me Voyager was still a really good series for the most part.
The mystery in the beginning, the ethical dilemma of the crew, the ethical dilemma of the doctor, it was fantastic. The concept of the Doctor suddenly becoming unable to function because he saved a friend instead of an acquaintance when they had an equal chance of living is a really wonderful concept - the kind of thing we didn't get in DS9 because it was so story-arc based. That's why I can appreciate Voyager as a sort of counterpoint to what DS9 was doing at the time, they both fulfilled certain needs - the need for big story arcs and drama, and the traditional concept episodes.
Only one thing bothered me and that was the lack of continuity regarding the timeline, since Kes would have been in sickbay, not Tom. A throwaway line explaining her whereabouts would have done it. Oh and its interesting how Seven has completely supplanted Kes in being the champion for the Doctor's rights. Here, Seven tries to convince Janeway that the EMH is more than just a hologram when it was Kes who had done it before in very similar circumstances.
Personally I had no problem with Janeway's reaction to the Doctor. She'd clearly been through the whole thing before and decided that the EMH really is a computer program that is essential to the ship and if it malfunctions, then of course it needs to be repaired.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Whilst an interesting episode, I wonder what happened to all those stasis pods Voyager had and why they didn't use one. Though I guess it might have taken longer to prep one than they had but a throwaway line could have said as much.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Here are my scores for season 5 so far:
Night 5
Drone 6
Extreme Risk 5
In The Flesh 7
Once Upon a Time 6
Timeless 10
Infinite Regress 5
Nothing Human 8
Thirty Days 8
Counterpoint 9
Latent Image 7

A couple scores, like Drone and Nothing Human, have been slightly adjusted, but for the most part they haven't changed. Now take a look at the other seasons 11 episodes in:

Season 1:
The Caretaker P1/P2 5
Parallax 6
Time and Again 5
Phage 5
The Cloud 4
Eye of the Needle 7
Ex Post Facto 4
Emanations 3
Prime Factors 7
State of Flux 7

Season 2:
The 37’s 5
Initiations 3
Projections 6
Elogium 2
Non Sequitur 6
Twisted 6
Parturition 6
Persistence of Vision 3
Tatoo 2
Cold Fire 7
Maneuvers 7
Resistance 5

Season 3:
Basics P2 10
Flashback 6
The Chute 5
The Swarm 5
False Profits 3
Remember 5
Sacred Ground 3
Future’s End P1 5
Future’s End P2 7
Warlord 5
The Q And The Grey 3

Season 4:
Scorpion P2 7
The Gift 5
Day of Honor 6
Nemesis 4
Revulsion 8
Scientific Method 5
Year of Hell Part One 8
Year of Hell Part Two 9
Random Thoughts 5
Concerning Flight 8
Mortal Coil 6

It's an interesting comparison. The beginning of season 4 was close to as good as the beginning of season 5, but the other three seasons were wildly uneven. A nice sign of improvement.

Not that you'd be immediately interested in doing this, but I wonder if your scores would change the second time around. For example, your season 1 and season 2 scores may turn out differently now that you know and are familiar with the characters. I know that many people who hated Neelix have a different opinion of him the second time around.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Every once in a while I'm tempted to rewatch VOY episodes, and I'm torn between whether I should buy the DVDs knowing the price I'll pay in lesser-quality episodes (this was much less of a concern for me with DS9, the only Trek series I have on DVD), or whether I should try going through my old VHS tapes.

If Voyager ever comes to blu ray I will gladly buy each season and rewatch the episodes then. Let's hope that TNG-R is a big enough hit to convince CBS to bring the other Trek shows to HD.

I would suggest waiting for the blu rays. It could be another 5 years or more until they're released, assuming it happens at all, but if you don't mind waiting a long time I'm sure it will be worth it.

Netflix. Way cheaper and doesn't require investing in physical media.

Ebay is the place to go for super cheap Voyager DVD sets. Just beware the Asian knock-offs!

Even better. It's funny I didn't think of that because that's how I've been watching Voyager.

Netflix is highly recommended!
