So, in the future, they discover "the crazy gene." I bet it retroactively explains a lot of stuff.
Also, if you have the crazy gene, are you allowed to do things like, say, be the captain of Deep Space Nine?
I remember this episode... crazy indian gene, ghost of his ancestors and boxing hallucinations brought on by some nebula/space creature... it's possibly the most ridiculous of all the voyager episodes i've seen but then again i haven't seen them all...
Dodgy biology features into every Trek show ever, but the "hyperevolution" one has to win some kind of award.
From what I remember of it, Tom Paris breaks the Warp-9 barrier, then finds himself hyper-evolving into humanity's "ultimate state" for some reason that is never, ever explained. Break a physical speed barrier, evolve quickly. Okay.
In the middle of this transformation, he kidnaps Janeway and takes her for a ride, and eventually the Voyager crew finds them on the surface of the planet. As iguanas.
Humanity's "ultimate form" is a large iguana. Okay.
Oh, and he and Janeway apparently mated and made little ultimate-human-iguana babies together, which are presumably abandoned, but I actually prefer to think the Voyager crew torpedoed the planet out of sheer embarrassment.
I guess TV shows can have DNA, because Voyager as a whole clearly had the Crazy Gene.
It was really hard on me when my doctor told me that I have the crazy gene.

The Crazy Gene, also know as the Roddenberry Syndrome, caused Paramount to create stupid spin-offs.

I kind of regret not watching more of this show.
I think I must have blocked this episode out of my mind because I believe I've seen every episode of this show and I don't remember this part. But I always tend to block out the Chakotay indian trips.
So I was right to give up on this show early in the first season, right?
It did get better when the borg and those liquid-space critters showed up. But for the most part, it sucked pretty hard. Kneelix should have been thrown out an airlock.
Yes you were.
Anyone who tries to qualify it with "It was better when the Borg were on!" is lying to you, and to themselves, blinded by Borg's inexplicable power to make people think they're cool.

God I hated Voyager. Hate with a capital Fuck You.
Even in a much better written show, Chakotay (not bothering to look up his name) would have been a drag. It probably doesn't help that he played a Native American, which in bad acting school means stoic, emotionless, monotone, and occasionally talking about 'spirits'.
