The second episode is as good as the first, a little more action, but still thoughtful. It raises some interesting issues, especially with lines like “It is easy to be a saint in Paradise” in regards to Earth. All in all there is little to complain about.
It is a solid couple of episodes, especially considering that this two-parter, “Journey’s End” and “Preemptive Strike” were all created only to serve as a backdrop for Voyager. All of these episodes were totally solid and well executed…yet Voyager eventually screwed it up.
