So, I'm new to the beauty that is Voyager, but I fell in love fast. Back in January, a friend suggested I watch it. She promised that I'd like it and that it'd be something fun for me to do. I can't lie, the prospect of watching anything Star Trek was unsavory and sort of left a bad taste in my mouth, as I'd grown up thinking that only nerds and losers wasted time on Trek. Well holy crap, I was wrong. I started watching Voyager and within ten minutes of Caretaker (part I, of course), I was completely and utterly in love with the show.
A lot of it had to do with the fact that Kathryn Janeway was so damn gorgeous. I'm not ashamed to admit it; I have a massive crush on the enigmatic and utterly commanding captain. It helps that Kate Mulgrew is something of a hero to me, and I wound up watching five seasons of Voyager in a week and a half. I was that obsessed. I loved the plotlines, the arcs that carried over, the development that was going on in the complex characters . . . I loved it all. I'm almost down to the final six episodes of the seventh season and as excited as I am to see them, I've found myself dragging my feet. It's almost over for me; I'm nearing the end and I honestly don't know what to do with myself.
So after this very long and very drawn out introduction in which I've blathered on and on about my new addiction to Voyager, I'll conclude with a question for you lovely people.
Which is your favorite episode and why is held in such high esteem?
