Bride of Chaotica is one of the highlights of Season 5 IMO. Funny and enjoyable.

I've got no objections to that! Though it's only 10 a.m. now, and I think this would best be an evening activity.

Re: Bride of Chaotica

I liked the various Captain Proton vignettes we'd usually get, and they went all out with "Bride of Chaotica". I'm a fan of the old Flash Gordon serials, and the 3 Republic serials featuring the Rocketman character.

Martin Rayner as Dr. Chaotica was always hilarious in the Proton episodes, and really seemed to be enjoying hamming it up.

Re: Bride of Chaotica

JANEWAY: Let me get this straight. Trans-dimensional aliens have mistaken your Captain Proton simulation for reality.
PARIS: Yes, ma'am.
JANEWAY: And now an armed conflict has broken out between these aliens and Chaotica's holographic army.
PARIS: Yes, ma'am. His Army of Evil.


And of course Paris gets to say this to Captain Janeway..

PARIS: I'll see you at the Fortress of Doom. And remember, you're the Queen!
It's pure camp, Paris knows it and he's just sucked right into it. Look at these ridiculous things he gets to say to his commanding officer! It's like all his worlds came together and baked him a perfect cake.

Paris can rattle off those words as easily as we talk about phase variances and plasma matrices.

Re: Bride of Chaotica

was this costume of the "Queen" a bit like a Dominatrix Outfit, or is that just my dirty fantasie?

this episode was really slash, Paris and his Queen He needs a good spanking anyway.

Re: Bride of Chaotica

Very fun ep! Love Arachnia's wardrobe and hair. Also, I even bought the Captain Proton official poster!

Re: Bride of Chaotica

Boy, is this a fun episode!

To me it's almost like a Voyager equivalent of A Piece of the Action.

I love the ready room scene. I'm a sucker for long takes, which in itself is enough. Janeway struggling to take the scenario seriously, Chakotay getting a laugh out of Tuvok's remark about the death ray, is just good, human stuff. I loved Janeway's glare at Tuvok about all other options being exhausted, as Janeway was being maneuvered into portraying Arachnia. The tinny-sounding music soundtrack in the holodeck was a nice touch. Does anyone happen to know if that was some stock music, or was it written for the episode? If it was written for the episode, it's excellent work!

Satan's robot is great! I liked how it ran after Tom and Tuvok when they left to go to the rocket ship, that was really cute.

Tom: Intercepted communications between Dr. Chaotica and Arachnia Stop. Chaotica at war with aliens from fifth dimension Stop. Must strike now to disable death ray...
Tuvok: Stop.

Fun stuff!

Re: Bride of Chaotica

I imagine the cast loved doing this ep. There's a movie-type poster for it; did you know that? I bought it.

Re: Bride of Chaotica

"Bride" was definitely one of the more enoyable VOY episodes.
