Old Janeway convinces young Janeway to take Voyager home through a Borg transwarp hub, avoiding the death of Seven and 22 other crew members. But young Janeway changes her mind, deciding the world would be better served by the destruction of the hub. Old Janeway argues long and hard that the safety of the crew is more important than millions of lives, but it’s a silly argument; certainly not something on which to base the final two part episode of a seven year old TV series.
Possibly the worst part of this plot is that we are told that Voyager must stay ahead of the cascade explosion of the hub in order to survive. Then pursued by a Borg sphere, they transport inside the sphere. When the sphere emerges in the Alpha Quadrant, where, with only 30 seconds warning, Starfleet has been able to assemble 18 ships which blast the sphere to bits, revealing Voyager, intact. B’Elanna has her baby, the series ends, and the writers hopefully burn in hell for that horrible excuse for a plot.
This episode is similar to fury, where a character crewmember comes back older and mean-spirited. Didn’t they learn their lesson then? fury was one of the most hated episodes.
"Marriage is for the young…like your wife."

B’Elanna: If you tell me to relax one more time I’m gonna rip your holographic head off!
Doc: I hope you don’t intend to kiss your baby with that mouth.
