The most mediocre episode?
 
Since there's a preponderance of "isn't X the worst/best episode?" type threads all over this board, it's time to sail into those uncharted regions.

Is there any episode so unmemorable, you can't recall what it was about when you see its name mentioned in a thread?

For me, ironically, it's "Remember". I was looking at a list of all the episode titles and that was the one I had to look up. Also, Voyager got into a real rut for a while with one word titles.

Night. It's not particularly bad, but it's not really good either, especially for a season opener. If I go a while without watching Voyager, I usually forget what it's about or mistake it for The Void.

I could probably give you a 1 or 2 line synposis of most of TOS, TNG and DSN(i.e 90%). But when it gets to VOY and ENT maybe that would drop to 50% or below.

For Enterprise, you could say "Archer gets beat up a lot but nothing else much happens for 2 years."

So this thread is for the episode that is not good, is not particularly terrible, but most embodies the word 'Meh'?

Rise.

Meh is probably a good word, though I'm from a generation before it came into general use, so don't fully understand the meaning. But that sounds close. An episode so forgettable, it made no impression on you at all.

Sacred Ground is another one. Season 3 had a lot of "meh" episodes.

Displaced. I went through A review guide trying ro see what epidsodes I had no recollection or even a reflexive twitch of the hand and after I was done looking I remembered the title but couldn't even vaguely remember it or the general time it came about.

Well we do tend to remember the best and the awful. For those that are sort of so-so as you say it makes no lasting impression.

as much as I absoluely love Voyager I think most of the first two and a half seasons were meh.

and I really don't get why people confuse Night with The Void? They're nothing alike. Unless you get confused by the fact that in Night tey refered to themselves as bieng in the Void. But really the two episodes have completely different plots

The worst episode without the shadow of a doubt would have to be Sacred Ground... so boring!!

I can see why the would get confused.

"Night"

Voyager enters a region with no stars

"The Void"

Voyager is sucked into a region with no stars


You could almost swap the titles around and it would make no difference.

well no, in Night they're just in an area where the light from the stars are blocked. In The Void they are sucked into an entity that has nothing in it but other ships that got sucked in. They are nohing alike
