At times poorly written, but the message is interesting....

When the show begins, an arms merchant and Janeway are conducting business. However, out of the blue, Seven of Nine sees the man and attacks him--claiming he had assaulted her. No one witnessed anything like this but with the disjointed story she gave, the Doctor very quickly concludes she'd been violated. His belief in this was so intense that his objectivity did seem very questionable. So what really happened?

Back in the 1990s, a major hot button in psychology was the notion of repressed memories. Many folks had recently undergone therapy and recovered memories involving sexual abuse and as a result several well-publicized prosecutions occurred. However, many psychotherapists believed that these memories were either implanted by bad therapists or were simply a witch hunt--while others felt that these memories were ALWAYS true and should not be ignored. I was very aware of this debate, as I was a therapist during this time and had investigated the phenomenon as part of a graduate school project. This time period and debate is the context for "Retrospect". Back in the 90s, the debate was very much ongoing, though today most in the field would hold such memories having little value.

So is this any good? Well, I did love that the film discussed the phenomenon but too many times the writing was poor. An important debate was occasionally one-dimensional in its discussion. But, overall it's not a bad episode...just one that has some flaws.
