Re: Thoughts on Season 2

There were many things I liked about Season 2, such as the Cullah/Seska and Voyager story. Then there were some stories I wish was done a whole lot better like Tom Paris acting out of line to bring out the Maquis Traitor (Investigations almost ruined that story for me). I also liked many of the episodes this year with my top 5 being:

Deadlock
Resistance
Basics I
Meld
The Thaw

Overall, I would say it was a good season, but not a great season.

I would definatel agree with you about those being the highlights in season 2. I would also personally add Death Wish to that list because for one I love any Q episode, and two I thought the moral delema that Janeway faced was interesting.

Resistance is one of those episodes that while I love I'm reluctant to watch becaus it makes me cry at the end, but that just means it was well done.

I think the Thaw was really well done, the world they created bordered really well on a fun circus to creepy clown without being cheesy about it. I always wondered though, while they were being carrid to have their heads cut off, if they had just remained calm, would it have killed them?

I forgot about Death Wish. While I liked Q and the Gray, Death Wish was the final Q episode post All Good Things... that I would consider a classic.

Re: Thoughts on Season 2

I never was a fan of the Kazon episodes, so Season 2 was definitely hit and miss for me.

Voyager travelled lightyear after lightyear, but still kept running into the same Kazon ships with Seska on board. On top of that, the Kazon were agressive morons, somehow capable of running starships!?! And don't get me started on their silly hairdo......

My favorite Season 2 episodes:

1. The Thaw
2. Projections
3. Prototype
4. Meld
5. Persistence of Vision
6. Non Sequitur

Yeah, I was thinking since they've been traveling at high warp (more or less) for the past 2 years, at some point soon Neelix isn't going to know anything about "this area of space." But I'm in season 3 and so far Neelix is still providing information. I don't get that.

Actually one of the few continuity problems Voyager handled really well in my opinion. Soon my friend, soon....

Where in Season 3 are you? Don't want to spoil anything if this is your first time so I would suggest keep watching.

I enjoyed the episodes encountering the Vidiians over the Kazon. My favorites of season 2 include: "Lifesigns", "Deadlock", "Resolutions", "Deathwish" and "The Thaw".

The Thaw is a real nightmare, the only truly scary Star Trek episode. That clown was the most unpredictable villain in all of Star Trek. A 10 out of 10.

Re: Thoughts on Season 2

I love Michael McKean (he played the clown) so I've always had a soft spot for that episode. He is a very funny actor.

That clown wasn't funny... he was threatening. KcKean is quite possibly the only person ever to pull off the evil clown without seeming ridiculous.

I meant I think he is funny in general.

The clown he played in The Thaw was creepy.

I think that was the best thing about the episode. As a clown it could have easitly been over the top, or rediculous, but it was done just right

This season was very hit and miss for me although i loved episodes like meld. Tuvix however marked the first time i was ever angry at janeway (i like her most of the time) and tattoo was incredibly boring.

I can't stand The Thaw, I find it unbearable to watch.

I guess this sums it up:
