Janeway Why do I bother?

Why do I bother? Why do I bother? Why do I bother? Why do I bother? Why do I bother? Oh please God cancel this show. Why do I bother? Why do I bother? Why do I bother? Thank God Smallville was on. Why do I bother? Why do I bother? Why do I bother?


Braga and Berman ''Oh my God, our jobs are in jeopardy! Run like hell!''

''If I'm going down I'm taking you with me, Braga!''

''Screw you And your big blue marble, Berman!''

''Shut up, Braga! Just say we're 'quite pleased' with the show and walk away!''


Oh look. Another ''framed'' story. Gee, I didn't see that coming.

Four out of five framed stories were ALL THIS SEASON! Four framed stories within 12 continuous episodes? And the season's only half over!

Episode 68 - "Doctor's Orders"

Episode 66 - "Stratagem"

Episode 62 - "Similitude"

Episode 57 - "Impulse"

Episode 35 - "Singularity"


T'Pol I'm a Vulcan. Don't get logical with me.

Yeah, okay, we'll accept Phlox would hallucinate as explained away both by the radiation and a side-effect of his race's people getting nervous. But that doesn't explain memory-loss. Hallucinating T'Pol, okay. But forgetting he put her to sleep and checked on her every day for a week? Huh? How do you hallucinate amnesia?


Phlox and Archer I don't care if she was only an hallucination. T'Pol shot your dog. How she got a phase pistol I have no idea.

The Previews said this episode had a surprise ending and us viewers need to watch the last five minutes. Well I was hoping the surprise ending was that the Xindi was really onboard the ship, because I figured out the T'Pol hallucination halfway through the episode and never got my surprise ending.

And how did we know T'Pol was an hallucination before the episode even aired? Because virtually all the talk and self-promoting the writers and producers did about this episode was focused all on Phlox having a mental breakdown. They repeatedly said only Phlox was unaffected by the radiation. If T'Pol was real and the both of them were unaffected, the Producers would have said it was about both of them. But they didn't, they said only Phlox was unaffected. Yeah, the Producers could have lied and said it was Phlox AND T'Pol to try to trick viewers, but they weren't that smart. They repeatedly let us know this episode was about only Phlox who was left unaffected. So when T'Pol suddenly shows up? I figured it out and still had a dozen minutes left.
