Over at the Cynics Corner, David E. Sluss has put up his review of 'Life Line', the most recent 'Voyager' episode (for the next few hours, anyway). Calling the episode "superbly acted and largely well-written, but more than a bit predictable", Sluss awards the episode an 8.0. Here are two of his comments on the episode:

SURPRISE OF THE WEEK: Troi actually used some of her psychological training and her empathy, something that rarely seemed to happen on The Next Generation. And she was actually used rather effectively, with the exception of the unfortunate scene in which she walks in on Zimmerman and the Doctor and has to ask which one is Zimmerman. Hello? Empathic abilities aside, just look for the guy not wearing a three-years-out-of-style Starfleet uniform.

NEW COMPUTER SCIENCE OF THE WEEK: We get to see the usual ridiculous hoohah regarding Voyager's inability to save a copy of the Doctor's program, of course, but as an added bonus we also get to chortle as we witness Voyager's version of "file compression," i.e. just chopping out sections of code.
