Coming Aboard

well, after having given up on Voyager in its first season when it first broadcast, I'm about to try again. I happened to stumble on a very good deal for a complete series dvd set, so I'm off.

Masochist? Maybe.

Oh, I don't think so. I think you'll find a lot to enjoy about it. It's certainly got its share of flaws, but then again, so does anything else.

Re: Coming Aboard

I am one of the ones who discovered Voyager again after it was off the air. I remember watching the first season when it aired, but due to work/school issues at the time never really got into it.

I agree with JustKate that while it has it has its flaws, it also has a certain appeal and charm to it. I am debating on rather to get them on DVD. I just worry that as soon as I buy them, they will come out with some fancy box set.

Re: Coming Aboard

No, not a masochist at all.
While Voyager is a severely flawed show, it is still 90s Star Trek and as a result is incredibly enjoyable and still very special.
While Voyager disappointed me a lot, its still one of my favourite shows of all time - its freakin Star Trek for goodness sake!

Re: Coming Aboard

well, I just watched the first two episodes, and they were better than I remember.

Maybe I'm getting soft with old age.

Oh, and by the way, that "really good deal" turned out too good to be true. They were bootlegs. But then I found the first two seasons pretty cheap at Walmart, so I'm still in.

Enjoy watching the whole seven seasons. Like all the Trek forms, there are good and bad with each. The Dr. provides for some very good watching.

Re: Coming Aboard

As someone who hated Voyager originally, but came back after some time.. I can say this:

There are nuggets of Voyager that are watchable, and 1 or 2 that are almost as good as a bad TNG or DS9 episode.

The best advice I can give you is keep your fast forward button handy, and don't get discouraged by all the trash episodes you have to wade through.

I'm already seeing that I'm not going to enjoy Neelix much.

Funny, because I like the comic token alien on Enterprise.

The difference here is that the comic on Enterprise actually serves a ship function, whereas the only point of Neelix's existance is to be annoying.

Re: Coming Aboard

Why shouldn't they have an annoying character on the show anyway?
Its clear he annoys the crew too, some people are just annoying so aren't they showing more diversity by having an annoying person on board??

Diversity for the sake of diversity is SUCK.

In a story, there are only 2 acceptable paths the annoying character can take:

1. They cease being annoying
or
2. They die in a spectacular way and the audience cheers

Paths which insist on retaining the annoying character crapify up a plotline to the point where it is less and less enjoyable.

Would Star Wars be better without c3PO? ABSOLUTELY!
Would BSG be better without Muffat? YES!
Were there any annoying characters in Star Trek 2? NO!

Join the fight against annoying characters! Say no to Jar Jar! Say no to Scotty's annoying alien buddy in the 2009 Trek film! Say no to that cutsie baby alien from the Lost in Space movie!

Just say NO!
