[VOY] Innocence

[VOY] Season 2, Episode 22 (Netflix: S2 E22): InnocenceInnocence

Rating: 2

I really like the first 15 minutes of this episode. I like how Tuvok talks to the children like adults (until they start misbehaving), how he explains his own children and Vulcans in general. I was surprised to read on Memory Alpha that Jeri Taylor explained this episode as a “fish out of water story”. To me it seemed like Tuvok is really good at dealing with children, aside from brief moments of panic when they hug him. Unfortunately this episode starts to go down hill and ends with a lame twist.

It turns out that the children are really over 90 and they age in reverse. Aging backwards is a concept I don't find interesting at all. And also the birthing process is probably weird and gross for them
