This episode is utter trash. You need the captain and chief medical officer's blessing and permission to get laid with a different species? How did Riker get away with it all those episodes. "Captain, Dr. Crusher, I'm beaming down to hook up with a unisex person this evening. I just wanted to get your permission." Think about all the episodes from TNG where Riker, Troi, Crusher, and even LaForge got lucky. Did they all ask the captain and chief medical doctor permission? Janeway comes off as a complete you know what in this episode.
