Quote from: Deanjam on October 05, 2020, 07:57:08 PMThe worst episode is Retrospect, where Seven is convinced some bloke has taken some of her borg implants without consent. It's a horrible sexual abuse metaphor made worse by the ending (and I'm gonna spoil it because it's awful) where it turns out Seven was wrong and had falsely accused the guy who is now very dead. So don't believe women accusers, they're probably making it up. Definitely hasn't aged well.
Quote from: Lemming on September 13, 2021, 11:25:04 PMYeah, as I remember it, the message is hard to read as anything other than "Seven should have just shut up and not brought the case forward". I've seen people say it's more intended as an allegory to things like the fallibility of witness testimony and the 90s satanic panic, but it seems to me to be very clearly about sexual assault.

Quote from: Mobbd on November 18, 2021, 10:40:39 AMExcellent episode imho. In the upper half anyway.I like the addition to canon that there might be something even more important than the Prime Directive. The Omega Directive! Nobody ever talks about it. (Though to be fair, nobody ever mentions it in-universe again either. Kinda wish they did.).EDIT: seems omega molecules were mentioned briefly in the episode "Q2." Barely anything but at least it confirms that it's real beyond one episode.

Quote from: Mobbd on November 18, 2021, 11:08:58 AMThat's cool.I wondered on a hunch if the idea came first for gameplay but that they snuck it into Voyager to legitimise the concept before the game's release? Probably not: they're a couple of years apart (episode was '98, game was '01).The game looks fun, actually. Some good deep cuts in there by the looks of it.
