"Shh.. It's the episode where he learns a life lesson and writes about it in his journal!"
"Kirk gets his requisite opportunity to stare dreamily at the Enterprise, which this time is framed beautifully against the moon. Itís really funny that they put one of these Kirk/Enterprise scenes in every movie, just to remind us that the ship is Kirkís one true love.
On the other hand, the original prototype of this sceneóKirk staring dreamily at the Enterprise aboard the shuttle with Scotty early on in Star Trek I—took up about a quarter of the total running time of that movie, so Iím surprised they didnít think theyíd already nailed this idea down. And yet, here they are still doing it. Heck, even Chris Pine gets a shot at the Enterprise Stare, sitting on his motorcycle as he ponders enlisting in Starfleet. (Though I suspect he was probably wondering, 'Why are they building a starship in Iowa?Ē)"
"I suppose a shuttle crash was inevitable this close to the end: it was one of those staples that Voyager relied on a little too often that was bound to rear its ugly head before the shows climax. Like time travel, crew members acting out of character and the Borg. Imagine how brave it would have been to have actually killed off Chakotay and Seven like this. To stick one in the face of critics like me; but no with predictable results they wind up on another Earth like forest on another Earth like planet...The scenes featuring the Ventu are the most snooze worthy this show has been all season. Literally nothing happens. Sincerity is a virtue but taken to this degree its like watching morally sound paint drying. I canít believe the episode shoves in a Ďletís get the Indians out of here so we can exploit the landí moral at the end. Itís the most obvious place the show can go so naturally thatís where we head."
