Honestly, can I just say "all of the above?" LOL

On the famous "Timeless" crash sequence... I know the storyboards for that sequence are posted online somewhere, but I cannot remember WHERE They were some of the coolest storyboards I have ever seen, and probably a big reason why that scene flows so well in the final.
http://drexfiles.wordpress.com/2009/...ed-snow-crash/

Is that what you're looking for?
YES, bless your heart!

Look at the dynamic, urgent linework and the great use of marker. MMMMmmmm. That, friends, is how a storyboard is done. Yum yum. The TV version would have been even more dynamic if they had followed that ending bit to the letter and not had the ship centered and totally upright in the middle of the screen, IMO. But maybe they wanted to zoom in on the saucer section and not the deflector dish.

EDIT: Actually, the sequence where the ship is approaching the planet is a bit more dynamic on the storyboard, too. Camera seems like it's more off to the side and at a lower angle.

EDIT2: AND a crew POV while the ship was still in the upper reaches of the atmosphere! Oooh.

EDIT3: And that cool part where they would have panned over to see Voyager appearing in the distance. Damn you, budget constraints or whatever prevented that shot.

Yum yum yum.

Re: Favorite Voyager Episode OF ALL TIME!?

Hard to pick that one - but Drone and Real Life were both excellent episodes. Death Wish also springs to mind. SomeOne To Watch Over Me was also good


.......I must stop or I'll start listing them all........

Caretaker, a brilliant introduction to the series and still my favourite of all the pilots.

Re: Favorite Voyager Episode OF ALL TIME!?

I think "Life Line" would be my second favorite...great Doc ep and it has Barclay & Deanna Troi...plus Zimmerman's assistant hologram Haley is cute.

I think Blink of an Eye will always be my favorite. I see it as the Inner Light of this series. And yes, I know the story was ripped off, but it was ripped off really well!!!

Re: Favorite Voyager Episode OF ALL TIME!?

I'm not a die-hard Voyager fan, but I have to go with Real Life.

It's easily the best holodeck episode in any series that had holodecks, and it also goes far enough outside of the box to be genuinely interesting, and to compete with the best of TNG.

I can't understand why this episode is cited on its Memory Alpha page as receiving poor reviews.

Re: Favorite Voyager Episode OF ALL TIME!?

Really, guys, Timeless? Starring the two dullest cast members/characters, massive TPD violation, and a Galaxy-Class ship without a Galaxy-Class bridge? Not saying it's terrible, but surely the series did better than that.

Now, I'm no Voyager expert by any means, having seen only two eps, I guess, over the past five years or more... so, here's my shot in the dark:

Flashback.

'T'was badass.

Re: Favorite Voyager Episode OF ALL TIME!?

I'm going to preface this with an admission that might 'lessen' my status as a Voyager fan in some people's eyes: compared to both DS9 and TNG, I've only ever seen the series 'in chunks'.

Having admitted that, my choice for my 'favorite Voyager episode of all time' goes to "Think Tank".

My favorite aspect of Think Tank is its storyline, which really gives Seven a chance to shine as a character outside of her role as a 'former Borg drone who still acts and thinks like a Borg' and also really hammers home the depth of connection that exists between her and Janeway.

I also really like Jason Alexander's role in the episode; I became a fan of his due to the voice work he did in Aladdin: The Return of Jafar and Aladdin: The Series and his role in Disney's live-action production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cindrella, so it was great to see him show up on Voyager. Plus, his character really reminds me in many ways of John Delancie's Q.

Note: I haven't seen either of Delancie's two appearances on Voyager, so the above comparison is being made based solely on his multiple appearances on TNG and his lone appearance on DS9.

Someone to Watch Over Me. It focuses on my two favorite characters, The Doctor and Seven. I usually don't go for episodes like this one, but this one was really well done, and had a lot of emotion and humor to it.

"Cold Fire"

Spooky, exciting with Kes as the main character.

Shows how Kes is tempted by evil forces but overcomes them and finally saves the ship.

I love all of Voyager, but Furture's End, The Killing Game and Death Wish are awesome.
