    Voyager meets Alien. There's no plot-progression here; just a good old alien invasion story. The twist is that the alien is actually a ... giant virus ? It's a very Janeway-centric show, guest starring the EMH, who kinds of acts like a big baby. The virus concept is interesting although the special effects are not the best. One complaint I do have involves the alien race (I forget the name). In the beginning, it's made extremely clear that the gestures are critical to their communication, and they are insulted by Janeway's ignorance. This requirement vanished at the end, as the ship was firing on Voyager, even though it seems that such a situation would be even more tense.
