But I digress.. I'm all pissed off about a voyager episode this week, "The Chute". Tom Paris and Harry Kim are imprisoned in this awful place that turns out to be a space station so there's no escape. Everyone in prison with them is a total asshole. Tom gets stabbed, and Kim makes a deal with one prisoner who is not an asshole: Zio. They tell Zio that if he helps shelter Tom they'll take him with them when they escape. Zio is a writer and philosopher who encourages the prisoners to work together despite the implants programmed to make them fight.
Then suddenly the voyager crew rescues Tom & Kim, and I'm like wait... where's their friend? And Kim is even looking all bothered and I thought it was because he felt bad about leaving Zio behind but NOPE, it's because he almost killed tom. Well shit I would have killed tom too, he was going to die anyway!
I looked up Zio on memory alpha and it doesn't say that he was killed or maimed, I watched the last bit again, now I'm just stumped... what a bunch of assholes, voyager. not cool! am I the only one mad about this?
