I gave it an 8. It was more interesting than DS9's pilot. Though, not as good as Enterprise's. And, Kes had that horrible wig...

It was just that gigantic plot hole (granted, the whole series would have been different otherwise), but couldn't Janeway have placed timed charges on the Caretaker's Array, had it send Voyager back, and then automatically detonate.
*kaboom*
End of series. :P

Not too bad, not sure where it would fit on a scale from 1 to 10.

Kes was a pointless character ;)

Asked myself the same thing. Voyager had great potential, but the authors did not use it. :(

One thing about this that annoyed me. The Tricobolt devices were seen in this ep and then they were never seena again.

It's just like the Enterprise-E in Nemesis exhausting it's compliment of photon torpedoes.

Tricobolt device appears in another ep (can't recall the name, I think it's called Conspiracy or what) where Seven assimilate too much ship and personnel logs and start to imagine conspiracy everywhere ... she conclude Tuvok failed to fire enough yield on the tricobolt torpedo to destroy Caretaker's array completely and that it's a Federation conspiracy to invade the Delta Qaudrant ... <_<

Anyway, I only give Caretaker a rating of 6 ... b'cos no Seven-of-Nine, hehe :lol:

We do see the Quantum Torpedoes fired in Nemesis. When Deanna said "NOW!" you saw 3 of them strike the Schmitar and reveal the ship.

Military tactic. You're more likely to hit, and to negate possible duds.
The M-16A2 semi-automatic rifle has three modes, three round burst, single shot, and safe.

True of manually fired weapons.. three is the magic number for most instructors (though I believe I've heard of folks whe prefer two), but that's because by the fourth shot recoil has usually taken you off target.

I don't know that this would apply to a torpedo!

It is, but I don't think the recoil from an 'impelled' torpedo would be enough to knock a starship off balance. And besides, the torpedoes have onboard guidance systems!

If I remember correctly from the Star Trek Encyclopedias. Both the Enterprise-D and E and fire a full spread of 12 photon or Quantum torpedoes simultaiously or in sequence.

I give it a 7. Not bad but needed a little work. Janeway acted to hastily in destroying the array. She could have found a way of destroying it and get Voyager home.
