  • A little hokie but still great

    I never got a chance to watch much Voyager when it was in prime time so my wife and I have been going through all the Trek series on DVD over the last couple of years. While Voyager is hardly our favorite series it is still good and at times, very good. This episode is likely my favorite so far. Saying that I would say the primary plot line is a bit hokey, dinosaurs from earth evolving millenia ago, developing space flight, and then leaving earth prior to the asteroid killing disaster. That is extremely far fetched. However the premise made for a very good episode and of course there was a huge, and very pertinent, moral story line here as well. Also, the Gegen dinosaur character reminded me of Jakar in Babylon 5, somewhat in physical appearance but primarily in the way he talked and some of his mannerisms.
