    I hope Peanut Hamper is the Pakled Empress now.

    So ... why do the Pakleds know Janeway?

    Surprised they all know about Armus. I would have thought he would be classified

    They probably know of her due to her popularity and assume all female Starfleet captains are Janeway

    Liked where Boimler had to specify the temperature of the candles; and the prank call to Armus.

    I don't think they captured the Pakled simple-speaking cadence, though.

    Would’ve been a 7 but that Armus gag raised it up to an 8. That was pretty funny. And that red shirt leader was a d**k.

    Poor Armus, a lone malevolent entity with nothing to do.

    I swear Vagra II, where Armus lives on, would make the ultimate Prison Planet.

    So we finally got to see a female Pakled. I thought that would be a bigger deal.

    A solid 8.

    How the Pakleds ever got into deep space I'll never know. Wow. :lol:

    I see multiple humorous possibilities.

    1. The Pakleds are stupid (but as we know, the pakleds are smart)

    2. Starfleet planned to send Admiral Janeway and told the Pakleds they were before deciding to send someone far less important.

    3. It is the Pakleds being extremely passive aggressive (my vote).

    Edit:

    Nope. Just stupid.

    Not a bad episode at all. Maybe it felt a little bit emotionally shallow compared with the last few, but it did have a good character arc for Boimler (proving he is not in fact a total suckup), and some further development for Tendi.

    Didn't laugh at anything this week, but I don't expect gut-busters.

    The Pakleds are so stupid it's a wonder they ever made it out of their stone age, much less making it to space.

    The part with the spy taking photos of his own foot and then temporarily blinding himself with a flash were the biggest laugh of the episode for me.

    Thought it was just OK at first, but by the end I was chuckling quite a bit.
    Gave it an 8.

    The Pakleds know about Janeway cause they are very smart.

    (also, they probably got the info from the parts and pieces of Star Fleet computer tech they've picked up and put into their ships)
