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
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

But they are in some respects alike, for whatever reason the episodes are both set in regions of space where stars are not visible. Or would you disagree with that point?

Secondly could the episode titles be switched without adversely affecting them?

Yes the stories the episodes tell are different, no one is denying that.

you could switch episode titles around in regards to a lot of episodes and it wouldn't affect them that much

Re: The most mediocre episode?

Possible true, but you have two episodes set in ares of space where other stars aren't visible (for whatever reason). The episode titles could work on either episode. So is anyone really saying that it is impossible for that someone could get the two episodes confused? If they were asked what each episode was about?

Of course the bigger fans of VOY are less likely to get them mixed up.

Re: The most mediocre episode?

as far as mediocre epsisodes, 11:59 is up there for me. Along with Sacred Ground and that one where Janeway goes on the shuttle mission with those nameless ensigns

It`s interesting. I feel the same about these episodes.
I would add "Think Thank".

Re: The most mediocre episode?

To me, one of the least interesting episodes is "Non Sequitur." When I look through the episode titles of Voyager's early seasons, "Non Sequitur" is the most forgettable. All I can remember is that it is about Harry Kim in San Francisco.

Yet it tells you a lot about Harry Kim's psyche. He has a beautiful, willing woman trying to get him to come to bed and all he can think about it how to get back to Tom.

Something must have happened in "The Chute" that we weren't allowed to see.

Ex Post Facto and Emanations are two straight up mediocre episodes. Also Initiations. Half of season 3 is also like that.

Unforgettable always struck me as an unfortunately ironic title.

For Enterprise, you could say "Archer gets beat up a lot but nothing else much happens for 2 years."
Apparently you missed something. This is a VOYAGER!!! thread.

Re: The most mediocre episode?

Not everyone will agree so a poll might help provide an answer that is an average. I like a lot of the episodes already mentioned and i think some people are confusing "forgettable" with "not good"....take 11:59 for example...i hated that episode but as soon as you say 11:59, i immediately remember it so it can't really be classed as forgettable

When i rewatch Voyager, the episodes that i tend to have forgotten are "Resistance" - "Remember" - "Darkling" - Drone" - Juggernaught

some i like more than others but when i watch them again, i do kind of think....oh yeah, this one
