“Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week’s episode of Kirking Off we continue our weapons of mass destruction block which introduces us to Jetrel the Haakonian Oppenheimer who developed a weapon that killed upwards of 300,000 Talaxians when it was deployed during a war between the Talaxians and the Haakonians. As predicted the resident Talaxian - Neelix - isn’t exactly thrilled with Jetrel’s presence on the Voyager, and hostility ensues. Nathan feels the episode had a few too many threads and could have benefited from more focus. Dean doesn’t necessarily agree, but he spends lots of time choking on his wine (let’s hope we got all that coughing out in post). Most of the crew think Neelix should stop his whinging about his entire family being vaporized, because Jetrel feels really really bad about the whole thing. Things turn when we realize that Neelix may be terminally ill, and Jetrel goes all Re-Animator to clear his conscience and possibly save himself. The lads get into the metaphysical a bit, and then go WAY off-base when they apply Patrice ONeal’s scale on rating attractiveness. They manage to reign it back and wrap it up with some more conversation about the moral responsibility of designing and deploying weapons of mass destruction. We present to you “Jetrel” from Star Trek: Voyager.”
