Over at the Cynics Corner, David E. Sluss has put up his review of 'The Haunting Of Deck Twelve', Voyager's most recent episode. Awarding it an 8.0, he praised the episode's 'decent script and effective direction', but of course also found several points of criticism again:

After a lengthy absence, Voyager's infamous bioneural gelpacks have returned with a vengeance, first in "Live Fast and Prosper" a few weeks back, and now here. The only question is this: We know the gelpacks have caused trouble in the past (remember the infamous "cheese" incident?), but have they ever actually benefited anyone? They're almost as bad as the holodecks, which at least a person can use for sex if necessary...

Ensign Larry Kim pulls rank and orders everyone to their posts, and requires Neelix to remain in the mess hall in case he is needed there. Why exactly would anyone be "needed" in the mess hall if everyone else has been ordered to be elsewhere? Perhaps to attend to Neelix's wok, which seems to always be at full flame even when Neelix isn't cooking and when oxygen on the ship is being depleted...
