Janeway stalks the empty corridors of Voyager in a tank top and carrying a big-ass gun after a virus ravages the ship and its crew. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch channels Vasquez from Aliens in “Macrocosm.”
I want to like this episode more than I do, mainly because the opening is so promising. This is what I was hoping for in “Projections” when the EMH thought he was stranded alone on the ship, and it goes along beautifully for quite a while. It’s a nice action mystery, where Janeway is trying to figure out what happened.
But then we do find out what happened, and it all becomes significantly less interesting—and, more to the point, less sensible.
