->Janeway really has nobody to blame but herself for Sevenís rogue behaviour in this episode...she was the one who insisted they try and re-assert her humanity. Now that [[HumanityIsInsane isnít quite working out]] and she is an embarrassment so she sends her crew out to stop her by any force necessary. The message here seems to be [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop act like us or we will destroy you]]. Janeway ''the Furher'' is back in business.

The message here seems to be [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop act like us or we will destroy you]]. duped but lets not forget that Janeway ''the Furher'' willingly wakes up a battalion of an aggressive, homicidal species and inflicts them upon the Quadrant in order to get a handful of light years closer to home...This looks like the perfect opportunity for the First Officer to [[WhatTheHellHero question his Captainís decision]] but instead he is back in business.

->The ultimate hypocrisy at the heart of the Doctor, which [[{{Deconstruction}} is fun to poke a stick at,]] is that heís so nasty about soldiers and about people who carry guns, yet look at him -- always in the middle of the fight, usually taking command, and Iím not so impressed at his refusal to pick up a gun when heís inclined, occasionally, to [[AMillionIsAStatistic blow up entire planets!]]

->Archerís position is very stereotypically ''Star Trek''. Itís a philosophy that argues humanity are fundamentally brilliant, and so should behave in a manner that befits being so fundamentally brilliant. Itís a philosophy that comes dangerously close to evoking Creator/GeneRoddenberryís simplistic utopianism, indicating that mankind is wired with a fundamental decency that is [[AmericaSavesTheDay almost unique in the entire cosmos]].

to:

->Did you ever read Rick Veitchís ''[[Comicbook/TheQuestion Question]]'' mini that was part of Superstorm? It had a lot of flaws, but there was this great bit where all Metropolis drug deals and stuff took place in bathrooms, since Superman is [[LogicalWeakness too good a guy to ever look]]. Itís like moral lead. ''This'' is not that Superman.

->Ray testifies against Ned and gets him thrown out of the CIA, before [[TakeThisJobAndShoveIt resigning himself]]... it would seem heís been making a living by taking gun-for-hire jobs over the web. You know, because thatís totally different from killing people for the government. Heíll [[HandWave grumble out an explanation]] for this later, but itís still dumb.
-->--'''''Website/TheAgonyBooth''''' on ''Film/TheSpecialist''

->Usual practice for Moffat-era Who is to suggest extremely crude, superficially worrying [[NotSoDifferent moral equivalences]] in dialogue which are then papered-over by the actual behaviour of the Doctor and his gang (whom we might want to start calling '[[MyCountryRightOrWrong Our Boys and Girls]]', since it is assumed that they deserve 'our' support whatever they do).
