Intelligence report

Kes' character gets developed, and the writers finally begin to commit themselves to defining the Ocampa heritage. It's an entertaining enough episode, but nothing of any great import actually happens.

(A note from the future: realising the mistake of having a creature which can return Voyager to the Alpha Quadrant floating around the Delta Quadrant, the Caretakeress disappears from the rest of the series.)

Most annoying is the bit where the child speaks with an adult voice. It didn't work in the original series and it doesn't work here. There's a lesson in that for all budding filmmakers. Second most annoying is the 24th century habit of healing people instantly, rather than leaving them to suffer and end up with disfiguring scars, like they do today. I am sure it's much more character building.
