  • For the dinosaur lover in all of us.

    I don't know if its just that I was a dinosaur nut as a kid, but this episode is my all-time favorite Voyager episode. The idea for this one was great. What would have happened to the dinosaur's futures had they not died out? I'm not trying to raise the evolution vs. creation debate here, but this episode imagines that evolution for the dinosaurs eventually took them into space. And the storyline was great, too. By having the evolved dinosaurs themselves accuse the blasphemous scientist who would dare to question their origins of being a heretic, evolution vs. creation is right there in the episode! Good, fun stuff!!
