Watched both parts of Year of Hell last night. Yup, it’s as good as I remember it being. I could be wrong but I’m sure Kes gave them a warning about the whole thing and to avoid that region of space. 

I also enjoyed the episode Nemesis. I remembered bits about it but totally forgot how it all played out. The ending came as quite a surprise, as did Chakotay’s reaction when seeing one of the aliens on Voyager. 

Yeah they kind of dropped the ball with Kes telling them about Year of Hell. I think there might be one throwaway line but even that I'm not sure on. One of the relaunch Voyager books revisits all the Krenim stuff so I might be thinking of that.

The biggest issue with Year of Hell is how the episode is ruined and rendered irrelevant by the ending. At least one person should have remembered it.

At the end of the episode Random Thoughts, Seven asked Janeway something that I've also been wondering. Why in the hell do they keep going off course to investigate random planets and different species? I'm with Seven on this one. Unless you need supplies then just concentrate on bombing your way home. Also, stop crusing along at warp 5-6 and start hitting those high end speeds. No wonder they estimated it would take 70 odd years to get home. :D

Higher warp decreases the dylithium quicker and the engines can’t handle it for a sustained time. I’m happy enough with them still wanting to be “Starfleet” and explore. It’ll still gonna take decades regardless. Plus they aren’t gonna find any other, quicker ways back if they ignore everything. They get flung forward a few times during the trip and never would have managed that if they’d stuck to one straight path, ignoring everything else.

That and it would make for a boring series. :D

Message in a Bottle...fantastic episode. I remember liking it back in the day but I forgot how good it was. The Prometheus is a hell of a ship. Shame we never got to see it in action in a DS9 episode.

I'm halfway through S7 now, missed most of that season back in the day (it was the year I moved to UK). Some good episodes but a fair amount of filler too. Then they suddenly reach the last episode and "oh crap we have to finish it now, and we only have a double episode left... um...

Spoiler

ok Janeway from the future comes back with cheat codes. Done"

I started season 5 this evening. The end of season 4 was kinda flat. Usually the season finales lead to something but here it was simply Starfleet saying that Voyager was screwed and on their own.

I have been enjoying the constant fighting between Seven and Janeway. I do wonder if these scenes are so good due to the off screen antics that were going on.

Seven has been great to watch. Sure, she’s easy on the eyes but I was talking more about how she always questions orders. The scene where she faces Janeway and tells her that she was freed from the collective to be an individual and yet she’s constantly getting told to get in line...great stuff and a valid point.

Seven also has some hilarious lines. When she is supposed to distract the robot in Tom’s black and white holodeck novel had me howling. She simply said “I am Borg” and then ripped it’s circuits out. :D

...what have I just witnessed?

I feel possibly even more confused than Q when he's trying to understand human empathy.

Guess at least I can tick "see Garrett Wang in his underwear" off the bucket list now.

so much great looking Star Trek stuff. Hopefully we'll get a Strange New Worlds teaser as well. Lower Decks has been confirmed for season 3.
