Story: Equinox, Part II
Written By: Brannon Braga & Joe Menosky
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Janeway wants her revenge on Ransom, who stole a part, kidnapped Seven, and left her to the wolves that he provoked into attack in the first place. She doesn’t see what she is doing as revenge, even as she defines vendetta and then says “you wanna call that a vendetta? go ahead”. THATS THE VERY DEFINITION OF A VENDETTA. Meanwhile on the Equinox, Voyager’s Doctor has switched places with their own Doctor, and his ethical protocols are turned off and he begins to operate on Seven for codes to their stolen part.
Anyhow, they try to paint Ransom as if he really is having a hard time with the decisions he has made, and as if his first officer is really the cold hearted one. But it is all rather inconsistent and uninteresting. I am just fed up with this show by this point. I wish Moore could’ve come in and really turned this staff around, but they were just as stubborn Janeway...and they weren’t going to work hard or make their show an enjoyable experience at any rate.
