Re-Watching Voyager

Never got into it when it was on, so didn't really give it a fair shake (and missed several episodes too). Re-watching the whole thing now on Netflix. Any suggestions (other than "Dont!")? Anything I should look out for or episodes I should pay special attention to?

Re: Re-Watching Voyager

My advice would be to put your expectations and prejudices behind and just watch and enjoy. Yes, there are some episodes that are mediocre, some that are ho-hum, but some of them are Trek at its best. Mostly, enjoy.

I've been contemplating a rewatch myself!

I concur. In many ways, Voyager was the spirit of Trek at it's best. Episodes that I especially enjoyed:
Dark Frontier (my absolute fave)
Faces
Bride of Chaotica
Scorpion
Barge of the Dead
Prey
Someone to Watch Over Me
Warlord

Real treats imo.

I'm a sucker for Equinox! I used to have a VHS where it had been edited together into a feature length movie, definitely one of my favourites!

Re: Re-Watching Voyager

Oh, I was thinking of the one where we have "Seven learns a lesson" tacked onto the end...

Was it that bad? Did they really have episodes like that?

Yeah, the name of the episode escapes me but it's been a B'Lanna episode and then write at the end we have Seven walk into Janeway's ready-room so she can "learn a lesson about humanity"

Tonight, on a very special Star Trek Voyager...

Re: Re-Watching Voyager

Makes me want to get the box set(s) just to see that! How good IS Season 4?
I always did sort of resent Janeway telling 7 what to do when I first watched the early episodes of that season.

"You should stay with us Seven, not go back to the Borg...you won't have free will for anything for a while...the crew won't trust you...our Chief Engineer will make racist comments about you and fail to understand that you were abused as a child, continuing up until less than a year ago and this is why you act the way you do...you won't get quarters, you'll have to live in a featureless cargo bay and we'll make you wear clothes that an exhibitionist would think looked too revealing"

Lol! Great, something to look forward to. I wonder if the old man will want to play Neptune: King of the Sea with Seven when the cartoon is over (and if anyone gets that reference, I'm impressed).
