    Random Thoughts was a great episode of Star Trek: Voyager and I really enjoyed watching this episode as the crew took some time off to enjoy a peaceful planet until a negative thought changed every thing. I liked the story and thought it played out well. It was kinda scary to think what they were going to do to Lt. Torres and it reminded me of alien abduction kind of. Can you imagine having no choice and people messing with your mind? The last scene with Seven and the Captain was fun. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!moreless
  • Abberant Janeway behavior is the only reason this flimsy plot works.

    7.2
    After 3 1/2 seasons, Janeway's motives are clear. Protect the crew. Get them home. Respect Federation ideals and laws. These sentiments do not always go together.



    Thr crux of the plot involves B'ellana detained for violent thoughts, with her punishment being a memory removal. Despite Janeway's liberal tolerance for alien culture and law, there's just no way she would let a random race lobotomize the invaluable chief engineer over something so bizarre. Not when she can be beamed out and on her way (rescue plan ? use the transporter ).



    The ending is a curious look at a severely repressed culture, and somewhat redeems the episode, but it's hard to get past Janeway's detachment for a very important crew member.moreless
