I just finished the Future's End 2-parter, and have a couple of observations, one continuity-related and the other concerning something that I really wish the PTBs had gone ahead with. There is a bit of a continuity discrepancy between these two episodes and its Season 6 sequel Relativity with regards to Braxton, but I can understand what the thinking probably was at the time: the character was a one-off guest star and they were more than likely wanting to tie things up neatly and concisely. My second observation has to with Sarah Silverman's character of Rain Robinson and what I think was a major missed opportunity and something that Brannon Braga really ought to have pushed for, which was to bring her aboard the show as either a regular or recurring character. She would've added a very unique dynamic to the series even in a semi-recurring capacity, and it would've been neat so see her romance with Tom play itself out and how it might've factored into the development of his and B'Elanna's relationship (which they'd already started to hint at in The Swarm). I know I said I only had two observations to make about Future's End, but I just though Of another one: I've always enjoyed the TNG Season 5 episode A Matter of Time, and therefore thought it was neat that Future's End is basically the Voyages version of that episode, but with more content added.
