    Really messy, and I don’t know why would people skip it? I guess writer’s only goal was to achieve some shock by telling Amelia Earhart’s destiny. As they see it.
    We’ve seen totally unnecessary violent reaction of her navigator. Nothing came out of it, unless they wanted to show how wimpy and wussy Voyager crew actually is, as I’m sure they didn’t. These – forever lost moments – could have been spent on this stranded human civilization, of which we saw – only square openings helmets.
    After all ST episodes I’ve watched I still don’t understand how could they write something like this and hope to get away with it?!
    And there wasn’t any explanation for space-faring-1936-ford! Not even a lame one.
