  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: As reviled as Chakotay/Seven is, this episode could have laid some groundwork for it, so that it doesn't just HAPPEN in the series finale, considering the two are trapped on a planet for a good chunk of the episode. Instead, nothing is even remotely explored on the subject.
  • Values Dissonance:
    • We all know what Captain Kirk would have done if he'd encountered a group of people whose development was being held in stasis by alien technology.
      • It sure was lucky for Chakotay and Seven that this was not in fact a "Feeders of Vaal" situation or they wouldn't have made it through the first night.

    • Not to mention Captain Janeway in the pilot episode.
      Janeway: Did you ever consider allowing the Ocampa to care for themselves?
      Caretaker: They're children.
      Janeway: Children have to grow up. We're explorers too. Most of the species we've encountered have overcome all kinds of adversity without a Caretaker. It's the challenge of surviving on their own that helps them to evolve. Maybe your children will do better than you think.
