Best acted Janeway episode

Picard had the Inner Light and Chain of Command as well acted episodes. Sisko had the Visitor and Far Beyond the Stars. Which Janeway episodes were stand-out acting ones?

Season 1: Eye of the Needle

Re: Best acted Janeway episode

Yeah, Season 2's "Resistance" with her working with the guy driven mad by guilt is a great showcase for Janeway.

Resistance and Workforce are ones that come to mind first.

Re: Best acted Janeway episode

I'd go with Endgame. I can completely forget I'm watching an Actress talking to herself.

I think Equinox was one of the best realistic Trek Episodes in entire series. Trek captains and leaders are portrayed as one dimensional characters. Rarely if ever flawed and often cut out characters IMHO of surreal leadership.

Real leaders are flawed individuals - Equinox displayed a side of Janeway brilliantly acted to Mulgrew that illustrates how even well intentioned and disciplined leaders can and do lose it.

That's true, I bet that was hard to do.

Re: Best acted Janeway episode

Yeah, but that wasn't the first time Mulgrew had done that on a Voyager episode, and Ryan did it once as well.

Re: Best acted Janeway episode

Yeah, the illusion is perfect. I couldn't tell that Mulgrew was acting against nothing. She always says how difficult it was filming those Captain/Adm. scenes.

Right, she'd done it in "Deadlock" and I loved that scene as well!!!

I'm drawing a blank, when did Ryan do it.
