    I've always thought 'Prime Factors' was one of Voyager's early gems too.

    "Prime Factors" is a good one. I like that "reversed Prime Directive" thing and the whole story is good with some interesting twists in the tale. The Sikarians for example, their hospitality turned out to be rather ego-centric.

    Not to mention that Gathorel Labin was a rather slimey character.

    "Emanations" is the weakest episode in season 1. I didn't like the way Braga was ramming his atheism down our throats in this one, the same for episodes like "Coda" and the horrible "Mortal Coil".

    As for poor Harry, well, he's the whipping boy of the series. The poor guy who can't fetch a bucket of water on some remote planet farm without getting into trouble.

    He's actually better in the books where he's more involved in action and does meaningful things but then he ends up in sickbay badly injured in many of them.

    He's not exactly a "favorite son", is he? ;)

    ^ I saw an opening and went for it. I'm kind of weak that way. ;)

    Yeah, I'll get back to it I've just been busy for the last week and haven't had much time to post, let alone watch any episodes. Hopefully I'll be back on schedule in a few days. :)

    I think that you will have to amend that rule to include me as well. As if I wasn't busy enough my PC broke down last night just a month after coming back from repair. :(

    Geez, dude, I'm sorry. Good luck with it.

    (And if it makes you feel better, the universe can't hate you anywhere as much as it does Harry.)

    Well that's true, I'm 23 and haven't died yet. Harry died at least twice by then. ;)

    Hey, so am I, and neither have I.

    The rule is proven. See? See?

    (Seriously though, good luck with it.)

    Re: A Hater Revisits Voyager

    Thanks for the support, luckily it was just my video card and once it was removed my PC started working again. :) So now rather than taking out my harddrive, putting it in another computer to retrieve my files, sending the PC in for repair and using my cumbersome laptop to do my work, I can just use my PC while waiting for my video card to be repaired. I only lost a day!
