Can we just pretend that Voyager never happened?

This show was such a trainwreck. Poor acting, poor writing, poor directing. This is the show that began the slow decline of Trek.

Re: Can we just pretend that Voyager never happened?

I'd rather pretend it had around 50-60 episodes. Through that lens, it's a good show with some missed potential.

You can, by all means. But a far as I'm concerned, Voyager > Next Generation and Deep Space Nine.

Re: Can we just pretend that Voyager never happened?

I love Aunty Kathy. So no, I will not pretend it didn't happen. Some episodes like "Threshold", "The Fight".... and a few others could be erased from memory though.

Re: Can we just pretend this thread never happened?

I recognise that all the other shows (except Enterprise) are better and probably have better characters and stories (i think DS9 comes top)

BUT Voyager is my favourite. Always will be

If you don't understand that then we just can't help you

But you are in our thoughts

Re: Can we just pretend that Voyager never happened?

Of course you can, because it's all fiction, so none of it really happened anyway.

But if you mean, "Can we just pretend that Voyager never happened, per in-universe?"...then, no we can't, because it happened in-universe.

Re: Can we just pretend that Voyager never happened?

Voyager was a good show with a good premise, good charaters and good actors.

Unfortunately, those in charge messed it up in the later seasons.

But as someone wrote in a post above, it's possible to save the show by omitting certain events.

1. See the events in "Threshold" as a nightmare Janeway had after eating too much of Neelix's food.

2. Forget the "Sky Spirits" rubbish in "Tattoo" and focus on Chakotay's relationship to his father instead.

3. Forget a certain insulting, character-destroying crap episode in season 6 and replace it with my story "Coming Home" which can be found on my "Kes Website".

4. Pretend that Lt Carey wasn't killed of and pretend that "Homestead" never happened. Nelix's place is with his colleagues and friends.

5. Pretend that "Endgame" never happened. They arrived home in another way.

Threshold is sooo misunderstood.

VOY had some great acting, some might not like the stories for whatever reason but there was top actors there.

I think he should pretend it didn't happen so he doesn't have to post here.

i would expel all of Voyager from canon if only to eliminate Spirit Folk.

How about "no".

This. I *like* Voyager. I think it's got some excellent material, some of the best in Star Trek in fact, but it doesn't have seven seasons worth of it. Take the very best episodes from each season and you'd have a nice little package deal of great Star Trek. I can take or leave the rest, but there are episodes of Voyager I return to time and time again, because they are actually just that good.

In the season of goodwill toward men, 'tis the season for people disappointed with their presents to bash Voyager once again.

One wonders if they only do it because they got another piece of coal in their stocking, to add to their ever growing pile of pieces of coal from previous Christmases.
