After the Year of Hell, any episode was always going to be a let-down, but this one didn't let me down too much.
Tuvok goes all dark, Tom goes all soppy and Seven voices her opinion. I love it when she does that: she is such a bitch. But it must be difficult to write stories where everyone knows the central character is innocent and that they won't be dead at the end of the episode.
This was my third Star trek video in a row, so I was a little jaded, but I was still entertained. This is also B'Elanna's second less-than-happy run-in with a peaceful telepathic species (See also Remember). Worth a look in anyone's book.
