My Voyager DVDs are Asian knockoffs I bought in China, "The Chosen Set". They did me well for the first few runthroughs and they're good quality but now some episodes just won't play, pity!

Re: Does It Get Better???

Bride of Chaotica: Fun at first, but the whole "cheesy sci fi" element got old kind of fast. It had its funny moments to be sure, but after awhile I just wanted it to end. Not really my kind of Star Trek episode, but I guess it was okay for what it was trying to be.
4/10

Gravity: Tuvok episodes are almost always good, and this episode is no exception. It was interesting to learn more about Tuvok's past. He wasn't always such a stoic Vulcan. The scenes between Noss and Tuvok were very moving, and this episode as a whole was a nice reminder that beneath his cold exterior Tuvok has a good heart.
It helps that Tuvok is among my two favorite characters on Voyager.
7/10

Bride of Chaotica is another one of those highly-rated fan episodes. I particularly liked the Doctor as the President of Earth, and the concept of the holographic aliens.

I can see why a lot of people would like it. It's funny, entertaining, and nice deviation from normal Trek, if that appeals to you. I'd like to give it a higher score than 4/10, but it's just not my cup of tea.

Re: Does It Get Better???

There are some great reasons to love Bride of Chaotica.. so camp and so ravishing all at the same time.

Re: Does It Get Better???

I feel that "Bride of Chaotica" is overrated while "Gravity" is underrated.
BOC doesn't even touch "Our Man Bashir" in my opinion, its entertaining and pretty fun but its not great. Gravity is an understated story and the concept of a woman falling in love with Tuvok when he can't return those feelings is a great idea and it was well executed imo.

I never knew anyone was underrating Gravity. Who are these raters?

Gravity is a great episode. Poignant, interesting, good sci fi.

I can't stand Gravity mainly I think because I can't stand Lori Petty. Something about her bugs the hell out of me.

Re: Does It Get Better???

So I guess you don't want these then:

http://shatner-store.stores.yahoo.net/vopawobylope.html

I liked her a lot, she manages to convey a different-ness in her role as an alien who didn't have forehead bumps and looked pretty much like humans. I appreciate it when that happens, too often aliens look like any modern day person and don't have any kind of different vibe.

Yeah, I definitely liked DS9's holodeck episodes more than I've liked Voyager's so far (or did they call them holosuites on DS9?). My favorite was probably Badda Bing, Badda Bang. Our Man Bashir was really good too.
