    I am not going to lie — I think it is incredible you managed to create an hour long podcast on one of the worst episodes of Star Trek. I feel the only reason it is not more reviled is because it aired in the same season as Threshold which was even worse.

    Voyager really did try everyone’s patience before Seven of Nine showed up.

    • Kristin Johnson says:

      This was a chilling and emotional episode for Janeway. It helped that they cast Len Cariou, currently starring as the stalwart Henry Reagan on “Blue Bloods,” as Admiral Janeway. I have no problem conceiving that there are dangerous entities tricking people with the promise of a blissful afterlife.

    • Even those episodes that aren’t so great usually give us something to discuss!
