    I just started season 2 yesterday and I absolutely loved that episode.
    I was hunting for some good old star trek feeling, which discovery dont gave me, so decided to give voyager a new go... very happy I did!

    I keep reliving it but wasn't it just sheer fun in parts? Like when the old truck backfires and Tuvok draws his phaser? And that blessed landing makes me proud to be a Voyager fan!

    Tuvok and Janeway hysterical to observe. Typically while her ship is tearing up around her, she's standing front and center. However, one back fire and ducks, then scolds Paris like she soiled herself a little. haha.

    One observation on Eye of the Needle.

    When the Romulan suggests that he tell Starfleet not to launch the mission that got Voyager trapped in the DQ, Chakotay is the one to respond "We've already had an influence on events in the DQ."

    Did the writers forget Chakotay came on a different ship, or did Chakotay say that because it would be taken better than "Uhhhh they came to chase US, I don't wanna be alone without a cushy Starfleet vessel!"

    I don't remember the episode line for line but wasn't he talking about the consequences of their previous engagements since their arrival?

    Yeah, but in response to the Romulans saying that *Voyager* should be warned not to go. Even if he did that, the Maquis would still be there, and this fact does not seem to occur to him.

    Just rewatched 'Lifesigns'... it's a decent ep and I enjoyed it about as much as the first go around. For me it's most notable as an ep to connect with "Someone to Watch Over Me' later on (as in: WTF is the Doc doing schooling Seven when he himself has no experience?!) and for some developing tension between Chak and Tom (Tom gets what he deserves imo).

    I quite liked Danara and she really did care for the Doctor. She was actually a decent Vidiian.

    And another positive feature of that episode is that Denara will be back in RESOLUTIONS. Continuity, YAY! :D

    Since I just rewatched 'Investigations' I can honestly say that I had forgotten a bit about the subplots in this area of the series... mainly the piece with Paris being undercover. I liked how Neelix was portrayed and used also in this ep and it hints at future interactions between Neelix and Tuvok.
    Really, some of the interplay between characters , even in instances when it is not fully developed or could have been pushed to more of an extreme are well done in this series. Rewatching the series is so far reinforcing (to me) the fact that the characters are one of the series' strong points.

    It always throws me off when they have to recast someone.

    3 struck me on my most recent watch of a Voyager episode;
    Why isn't there a science officer on the bridge? surely one would have come in handy traversing the Badlands.
    The human doctor and the nurse die during Voyager's relocation but why don't they have at the very least any competent first aiders to assist the EMH doc, rather than the guy who drives the ship or the 2 year old they happened across?
    Why is Janeway's ready room so big? I can't recall what an Intrepid class vessel is for but I doubt very much it had anything to do with captain being able hold soirées just off the bridge.

    Hi Abi. Do you think Janeway being a scientist kind of covers the need to have an official science officer? I don't know but in general they seem pretty clued up on the bridge.

    I think they probably could have trained some more medical staff over the years. That would've been practical.

    Just thinking about Janeway's facilities. Her quarters are large but if I recall she had even more space because Neelix turned her galley into the main kitchen. (I might have to check up on that).

    @Refuge That’s good point about Janeway being a scientist in her own right.

    The captain has a vast number of duties, sifting through and analising quantities of specialised data need not be one of them, if she has someone dependable to whom she can delegate, who could also offer advice on a given situation for the captain to weigh it's value and outcome against those provided by other crew members in order to make the best possible decisions.

    1. Throughout the TNG-era series (I'm not qualified to speak for the whole franchise.) we rarely see the science officers doing science. Normally physics and chemistry are covered by the engineer while biology is covered by the doctor. Interestingly Data was meant to be the chief science officer on the Enterprise-D but was moved to Operations instead because a blue uniform didn't go with his eyes. The Intrepid-class bridge does have a science station - just port of the conn - but it was rarely focused upon. Other than Samantha Wildman, who is significant only as the mother of Naomi, the science division on Voyager barely acknowledged at all.
    2. As SFDebris loves to point out, Tom Paris is an omnidisciplinary superman - ace pilot, shuttle designer, commando leader, historian and nurse. Whenever Janeway wants a job done right and the original person died she assigns it to Tom (whereas if she wants it done wrong she assigns it to Neelix). Obviously it's normal in television for the regular characters to do everything themselves rather than delegate bu Janeway in particular seems to only trust her little band of favourites to get anything done.
