Trekathon 421: Tuvix (VOY)

June 30th, 2012

Harry Kim’s incompetence maims Tuvok and Neelix.

This could have been a lot, lot worse. The concept of merging Tuvok and Neelix into a single person could have been played for comedy. Instead this episode takes a much more difficult philosophical path.

Unfortunately the decision made at the end rings false. No matter how justified, it’s hard to believe that Janeway would ever commit murder, or the crew would sit by as it was done.

421 down, 316 to go.
