Re: Voyager again, for the first time

Dreadnought

Some nice directing, good work Geordi. The story on the other hand, seems a bit too similar to Prototype, and coming this close together it's like a concept was floating about, two people developed it and came up with these variations.

That said, it did it well, probably better than Prototype. Least it didn't have any schlocky robots hanging about. Really liked how far Torres and Janeway were willing to go to stop the missile.

And the Paris story is back, and Voyager's damaged rep due to previous actions and Kazon propaganda. Nice to see some continuity going on. Unlike those holo-emitters that were being set up in Engineering - yes that really bugs me, they were practically working just needed a few kinks worked out and now they're just forgotten. I'd imagine they would have been a priority when nothing episode worthy was going on.

Meanwhile, that Paris story, seems he's lost his mojo after breaking Warp 10, or he's in a funk after Janeway rejected him after turning human again. Either way, I expected him to stay with Janeway, go out a hero now he basically has nothing to live for.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

Even Q's trying to get some. Because next up is:

Deathwish

Riker's in here too.

AWESOME!

I love this episode. Gets its message across and has the usual Q fun while we're at it. Other than going on about how good it was to see de Lancie or Frakes playing their roles I've not really got anything to add here.

Okay, maybe a little. The Riker scene, Riker gets to grin behind Janeway just as he does with Pickard as she switches tracks dealing with the other guests and the Qs, while Janeway gets a little bit starstruck with the First Officer of the Fleet's Flagship who has done so much. Both played it really well. Made me realise that within Starfleet the Senior Staff of the Enterprise are probably semi-celebrities after everything they've been through.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

I liked the episode for Gerrit Graham as Quinn. I became aware of him in 1974 with Phantom of the Paradise-- it seems I often don't notice an actor until they do some sort of genre film, even though I might have seen them in other work.

It was a good Q episode.... oh if only they could have left well enough alone though.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

Isn't that the story of Voyager though?

I'll admit I went into this with a low opinion of Voyager, and that has certainly been raised with only few episodes letting me down, but I worry about when I get to the Borg and the stuff I haven't seen before.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

I'm back! Briefly. I decided to cleanse my pallet of Star Trek for Into Darkness, and now that's done with, I think I'm going to take some time off to watch the TOS movies, some of which I've not seen since I was a kid. Either way, I got one more in last week, but only just now got the time to write it up.

Lifesigns

Viidians - I remembered them turning up more than this. Nice, different spin on them though. Nice to show the entire race aren't organ stealing mad scientists.

Anyway, the most disgusting race Star Trek may ever have introduced gets made pretty and the Doctor falls in love. To start with it rang a little untrue. The EMH struggling to cope with attraction, yet in the Beowulf episode we've already seen this. Though this is a much better version of it, and of course this time it's love.

Then it almost becomes an episode on euthunathsia, but instead carries on with "Love will conquer all." I'm not sure if this would have worked with any of the other actors. Picardo really shines here.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

After a month and a half I've finally watched another Voyager.

Investigations

The pay-off from the "Why is Paris being an arse?" I'm surprised this wasn't carried on till the end of the season, but on the other hand Paris being annoying was wearing thin. A neat episode, it's interesting that Neelix managed to be both interesting and annoying at the same time. I'm assuming 'A Briefing with Neelix' is never heard from again?

He's completely right. The word continuity does not exist in the Delta Quadrant.

I know for a fact that Janeway watches A Briefing with Neelix every morning while on the can.

Hyperbole for its own sake, or have you simply not watched season 3?

If you need a hint, its the same ep that remembered Neelix only has 1 lung.

Talk about continuity!

God Dammit! Well, at least there's continuity. I like the idea that for one episode somebody remembered these things. If no appearances after season 3 I can pretend they only lasted a year.

Re: Voyager again, for the first time

Deadlock

Subspace distortions creating two Voyagers, only revealed after an incredibly tense opening act as the ship gets done over. Great opening.

Though I'll admit, when it started, the ship started blowing up and Kim died, I thought it was another time mishap. How thankful I am that I was wrong.

Then to build up to the Vidiians slowly massacring their way through the 'healthy' ship. Voyager really went big on this one. Although the effect of trying to get two Janeway's into one shot was a bit messy. Even Red Dwarf managed it better. Though two on screen at once is nothing to complain about. Especially battle damaged Janeway.

I'm impressed with the ending, the bravery of sticking with the severely damaged ship instead of the pristine one. Knowing Voyager, I'm saddened that this likely doesn't get followed up.

Kim's dilemma at the end was good, though Kim's the lesser of the two with that in particular problem. Technically the yet to be named Naomi isn't with her mother, and the Wildman who is now her mum lost her Naomi. That's a little messed up... sort of.
