Star Trek (VOY): Thirty Days – SF Debris

Opinionated Voyager Episode Guide sees what happens when you defy Janeway, you are driven mad and the rest of the crew fully supports it out of fear.

About SF Debris


  1. Hath September?

    • Just out of curiosity, is there any rationale behind the various musical choices for the reviews of different series?

      • Yes he usually explains somewhere along the way in the course of reviews. Enterprises for instance is partially inspired by Archer jumping around and landing like Superman. TOS is naturally Shatner being Shatner. Voyager’s is “Harleys and Indians (Riders in the Sky” which… makes sense once you know the title.

        Usually if its not the show’s actual themesong, its based around something in the lyrics that catches his attention. Generally the songs are dating from the same era, and usually with some thematic connection to their respective series.

        Personal favorite? Mass Effect – “Don’t Fear the Reaper”

  2. 11:45 – Apparently Tom dyes his hair, or use to dye his hair.

  3. I thing the issue with solitary confinement is that people/writers just really don’t get that it’s a torture. I remember that in Dragon Age, Anders says that once he spent a year in solitary confinement which, jeeeeeez, how did he not go completely insane after that?

  4. Commandant Janeway gives Tom 30 days in the cooler.

  5. I like Voyager but I also like you picking apart these episodes, 😀
    Great analysis once again and a lot of fun to watch!

  6. He was in solitary, but people kept visiting him? To be fair, what other confinement did they have? Do they even have any other crew members in the brig?

    Why did they feel the need that Tom was the only character that could have all these different interests? Couldn’t they have spread them around? It might have made them more interesting.

      I doubt that Voyager’s holding cells are occupied very often. The most common punishment we’ve seen in Trek is confinement to quarters.

      Believe it or not, the larger US Navy vessels actually do have general population cells in their brigs. Admittedly, they’re not much more than a dozen or so berths crammed into a glorified closet, but after a 24-hour processing and observation period, confined sailors and Marines are usually allowed to interact with their fellow prisoners. Ironically enough, the normal maximum period of confinement in a ship’s brig (before prisoners return to duty or are shipped off to a real prison) is 30 days.

  7. I just looked it up, 600 meters is over 370 miles, challenger deep is just under 7!!! that’s flippin’ deep!!!
