->''"...I said to Eric Saward, the script editor, 'When I’m [[KickTheMoralityPet tying Peri to this rock and threatening to torture her]], am I doing it for some subtle reason of my own, because I think I’m {{being watched}} or whatever, or because I’ve [[NotHimself been affected by the mind probe]], or is the Matrix [[{{Frameup}} lying?]]' Those were the three alternatives as I saw it. He said 'I don’t know, you’d better ask Philip Martin', so I got in touch and gave him those three alternatives, he said 'I don’t know, Eric wrote the trial stuff, all the Matrix stuff was added after, by Eric, you’d better ask him.' So I went to Creator/JohnNathanTurner, he said 'Oh, [[ShrugOfGod whichever you like.]]'"''

->''"Kes returning should be a chance for a celebration of her character, but instead she is [[CharacterDerailment twisted horrifically out of character]], and to make matters worse Jennifer Lien looks [[ArtistDisillusionment utterly bored]] by the entire enterprise...Kes’ (much needed because she is acting so badly out of character) explanation is that she thinks Janeway is responsible for her leaving Ocampa (no) and that she is a prisoner on ''Voyager'' (no), that she has been corrupted by Janeway’s ideas (no) and that she was responsible for her leaving the ship (no) and that Janeway encouraged her to explore her mental abilities (no). How does any of that make any sense? This episode’s storyline was written by Brannon Braga, for Christ’s sake, who has been around since the year dot as far as ''Voyager'' is concerned? Does he have no recollection of the early years? And more to the point does he think that [[ViewersAreGoldfish none of us have any recollections about it either?]] This isn’t even worthy of being called characterisation – its just a preposterously vague and idiotic group of words strung together that mean absolutely nothing to explain a plot which is just a bunch of events thrown together that means nothing."''

->''"In my previous article, I stated that Brett Dalton as Agent Ward was 'about as expressive as [[TheGenericGuy a cardboard box full of styrofoam peanuts]]', and that hasn’t changed, even despite the reveal that he was [[spoiler:an agent of HYDRA]] all along. I can’t say for certain that the writers totally pulled his {{heel turn}} out of their asses, but it sure feels that way. I doubt rewatching those early episodes would reveal any clues about Ward’s true loyalties that we didn’t notice before, and Brett Dalton himself had no inkling of the twist until 15 episodes in."''

->''"We finally learn the secret of the immortals. Turns out they're all aliens from planet called Zeist, exiled to live on Earth for all eternity. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer I'm not making this up.]] Zeist. All of the immortals are shown in a group together, exiled for some kind of revolution. To this day, I enjoy how richly Zeistian the names '[=MacLeod=]' and 'Ramirez' are... This entire setup convinces me that the screenwriters never actually saw the first movie, because in that movie, Connor knows no other immortals, and [[PlotHole cannot recognize Ramirez or the Kurgan]] when he sees them. And he also seems to require training that he shouldn't need, because the "rules" for their exile were [[InfoDump spelled out in exacting detail]] on Zeist. Maybe Connor was drifting off when the Zeist aliens were explaining, 'Oh by the way, the only way you can die is by getting your head chopped off. Remember that.' It gets funnier the more you think about it, since Connor also believed himself to be a normal human being until slain by the Kurgan. The argument holds less water than my sister on a road trip."''
