  • Janeway is forced to go against her better judgement, all in order to say 'I told you so'.

    4.0
    After a near destructive attack on Voyager by the Kazon, Janeway is forced to consider going against her better judgement to ally with a faction from the Delta quadrant. This episode was little more than a vehicle for the goodness of Federation ideals, and Janeway almost relishes her speech at the end of the episode about how 'Federation' ideals are more important than ever. Rather than give the character of Janeway a chance to question her ideals and confront her own inflexibility, she is given the chance to yet again show the crew of Voyager that the Federation is always right. Although the initial concept and the plot is not bad, this episode in my opinion shows a lack of daring on the part of the writers of the series. A good episode, but dissapointing. Perhaps after a few more seasons in the Delta quadrant, Janeway will really see her 'ideals' tested. This, however, was unfortunately not one of those times.
