Tom Paris tries to break a warp barrier (which we’ve never heard of before).
Janeway and Paris ‘hyperevolve’. That’s worked well before, after all. And then they mate, which is way more information than anyone wanted. It’s an episode that could have been fun, but it’s played for gross and horror.
So – they invent a transwarp technology that has a nasty side-effect. But they’ve worked out an effective cure for that side-effect. So why is it never being used again? Seems like a pretty good way to get home to me.
(An aside: Janeway’s list of ‘record breakers’ didn’t include Chuck Yeager? Seriously, that’s just dumb).
403 down, 334 to go.
