Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Voyager has stopped off on an uninhabited planet for repairs (acknowledgement that this ship has been in a fire fight every week for seven years? woah!) and while looking for Dilithium, Kim makes contact with a ship that was being attacked. He saves them, but not after their entire command crew has been killed. Voyager, on the other hand, has become buddy-buddy with the very race that was attacking. Even though both have indadvertedly involved themselves in a civil war, but I find it odd that Janeway scolds Kim a bit for doing so. Awful Captain.
Then it turns out that it isn’t a medical transport, but a prototype for a cloaking ship. Of course...Voyager is constantly meeting liars and cheats and being fooled into their schemes. Gullible idiots. Also how sad is it that this show can’t have any nice aliens, they all turn out to be some kind of villain, or at the very least have some flaw that makes them seem less than the gallant Voyager crew. It is on the verge of xenophobic, which is the exact opposite of what Trek is about.
A subplot involving the Borg teenager Icheb developing a crush on Torres. Whatever.
