I'm pretty sure it's been mentioned several times that transporters can be tuned or something to shield frequencies?
Not as many times as it's mentioned "we can't beam them back, if we lower our shields random alien of the week will blow us up."
Very true.

It's just particularly egregious in Alter Ego. Tuvok dematerializes first -- THEN we get a scene where Chakotay screams "Shields down to 47%!" -- and THEN we see Tuvok rematerialize on the space station. It's literally *while* he's in the transporter beam that we are obnoxiously bludgeoned with dialog explaining they're breaking the shields beaming rule. It's a real slap in the face.
Who said anything about science fiction or plausibility? VOY was the first Star Trek series to be science fantasy. What's the difference between science fiction and science fantasy? One follows a logical system of rules while the other does not.

There are exceptions to every rule, but usually TNG sci-fi seemed a bit more consistent than VOY sci-fi. In VOY it seemed like they were making it up as they go along so that's why fans talk about contradiction after contradiction in various aspects of the show. Thus I brand it science fantasy; the story matters, the universe mechanics do not...

Lol, anyone else notice caveman riker giving us the finger?


Eh, every series is entitled to one or two "spock's brain" episodes. The important thing is not to make a habit of it. Unfortunately it seems Voyager did. (sorry voyager fans, i had to type that last part. couldn't resist taking a shot at my favorite punching bag. Hey, I liked tuvok)

Eh, I'll take Threshold over bland preachiness any day. I've had a lot more fun talking about those lizard babies than I ever did the prime directive.
