Story: Future’s End, Part II
Written By: Brannon Braga & Joe Menosky
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
So it’s a battle of the witless between Starling and the Voyager crew. I really hate characters with inconsistent motives, and Starling has just that. His whole entire plan is to go to the future to get more technology for his company to release as his own (a plan that is so obvious it pains me how long it took Janeway to figure it out) yet when confronted with the possibility that his actions will kill millions INCLUDING HIMSELF. He claims he doesn’t care. YOUR DUMB PLAN IS BOTH TOO OVERUSED AND CONTIGENT ON YOUR SAFE RETURN. How could he NOT CARE if he lives to see his plan out? That defeats the point of the plan! This guy is an idiot!
This episode was just as bad as the first if not worse.
