LOL. It's the one where... fuck it feels dumb even to say this... Chakotay meets a member of a race that you (and all your recording instruments, except paper!) forget about five minutes after they leave your sight or something, and falls in love with her, and it SUUUUUUCKS.

Re: Re-Watching Voyager

I thought that was a very interesting ep. And you know Dr.Who went on to do similar aliens with the Silence.

Yeah, but that Voyager episode basically had a built-in reset button with the forgettable aliens...you can't say that about Doctor Who!

Doctor Who and Star Trek make up two of the essential cheeses on the Sci Fi 4 cheese pizza!

Re: Re-Watching Voyager

Who can it be considered to be far more original than the others when it basically carried on what TOS and TNG already did with very little change to the formula?

Well, the whole 'separated from the Federation and trapped in an unknown part of space' certainly makes it more original than TNG, which truly did just repeat TOS' formula- but you'd be hard pressed to say it was more original than DS9.

Re: Re-Watching Voyager

I don't really care whether it's original or not, as long as it's entertaining. I'm not grading a film school project, I'm trying to unwind and have an hour of fun. And in this, I think Voyager excelled far more often than it failed. The only episode I would avoid like the plague is "Threshold," which turned out to be even worse than I remembered. "Forgettable" was, for me, one of those episodes I hated in the Nineties, but upon rewatching it just weeks ago, I found it to be pretty damn good.

I also noticed there's a lot more continuity in VOY than I remembered, since in the 90's I was comparing it to DS9. So make sure you watch it in order. There are elements in many episodes that they revisit effectively later on in the series. I have no idea how I didn't notice that when it first ran.

Also, Neelix is far less annoying if you realize from the start that his overbearing ebullience is just a mask he projects to cope with a tragic, tortured, and lonely existence.

Re: Re-Watching Voyager

Just got through "Alliances" (season 2). Terrible. So far, Janeway is just awful. She has spent most of the series re-wording complicated things other people say, which was lame, but in this episode she displayed absolute ineptitude at leadership. It's amazing her crew hasn't really mutinied.
