The best episode of Voyager - Part Three

Okay Trek fans, this game was successful on the TNG and DS9 boards, and I hope it prospers here as well. Here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you play again. Not a very accurate way of determining the best episode, but a fun game nonetheless. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

Winners

Season One - State of Flux
Season Two - Projections
Season Three -

Basics (II)
Flashback
The Chute

I'm gonna have to kick out Rise. It's a rather forgettable episode, with cheesy lines ("He had to return to the surface") and it's a pretty much one-trick episode. The visual effects were obvious computer graphics. And I don't quite buy Tuvok humouring Neelix the way he does.

Going to remove Favorite Son. I actually will be watching this episode again soon but I actually don't remember it that much other than it having the Terminator 3 chick and being absolutely terrible.

Removing Coda - bad, bad, bad! Awful story, meaningless flashbacks, ridiculous father angle, etc. And Janeway's "Go back to hell, coward!" is one of the most contrived lines I've heard on Trek.

Removing Basics II - definitely the worst two-parter of the series... as I said when I eliminated part 1, the only redeeming quality is the end of the Kazons in this series...

Time to kick Sacred Ground. I make no secret of my dislike for Kes, and the forced self-reflection trip for Janeway didn't help the episode any.

Bye, bye Remember, because you were ironically a very dull and forgettable episode.

Bye, bye Warlord. I suffered through this once, and it is the only one I've never wanted to see again.

Still trying to recover from the fact that Projections came in first in season 2.

The Q and the Grey - the less said about Q on VOY, the better. Especially when it concerns this episode.

Darkling. Boring, predictable plot.

(And worse than Rise and Favourite Son, imo)

Saying goodbye to "Blood Fever." The mate-or-die pon farr is something I just can't dig about Vulcan culture.

Damn, probably one of my Top 5 VOY episodes. Was rooting for it to win this season, though I know character episodes are always underdogs.

Removing Macrocosm - hilariously stupid, with strangely bad special effects.
