Maybe that's why Alexander is like he is... one of his earliest childhood memories is of his dad disemboweling Flotter.

Not everyone will agree so a poll might help provide an answer that is an average. I like a lot of the episodes already mentioned and i think some people are confusing "forgettable" with "not good"....take 11:59 for example...i hated that episode but as soon as you say 11:59, i immediately remember it so it can't really be classed as forgettable

When i rewatch Voyager, the episodes that i tend to have forgotten are "Resistance" - "Remember" - "Darkling" - Drone" - Juggernaught

some i like more than others but when i watch them again, i do kind of think....oh yeah, this one
I can agree with most of these...but "Drone"? Really?!

Apparently you missed something. This is a VOYAGER!!! thread.
Apparently you missed something, too. That post was immediately after MacLeod's post which mentioned ENT!!!

Re: The most mediocre episode?

Isn't this like handing someone a bowl of red M&Ms and asking her to pick out the reddest one?

"Mediocre" is Voyager in a nutshell. It was never as terribad as TNG, DS9, or ENT could be (even "Threshold" wasn't as bad as some of the boners from the other shows), but it also never achieved greatness. "Year of Hell" came close, but it was spoiled by the reset.

It was like the show was just content with what it was and never really tried to push the envelope but, at the same time, remained safe.

Season Five was probably when the show was most modest and humble, so "Night" is as good an answer as any.

The episode title is clearly a double entendre.

My problem with choosing a mediocre Voyager episode is that there a lot of them. There were great VOY eps, there were bad VOY eps, there was even Threshold. But there is this yawning chasm of bleh or middling VOY episodes and that's a problem.

I'm going to have to go with The Haunting On Deck Twelve.

Re: The most mediocre episode?

It's hard to recall an episode that was inherently forgettable.

I'd have to say The '37s. Did the aliens who took them ever show up? Did we ever find out why they were taken? Did they just decide to stay on the planet? For me, the answer is "I don't remember, nor do I care." Did Voyager land on the planet for some purpose? Well, they just find the people there, hang out for a bit, and then leave. I don't think anything happened in the long run.

Though, I could just cite any episode where the reset button occurs (Time and Again, Timeless, Year of Hell) because the events of the episode were literally forgettable. You could skip those episodes and miss nothing of the continuity (hahahahahaha).

Re: The most mediocre episode?

Glad I'm not the only one with the Night/Void problem. And I consider myself a Voyager fan, having watched run at least four or five times. Agree with a lot of the mediocre episodes mentioned already. Less mediocre than just plain bad is Nemesis. But I guess it is at least memorably bad. Only seen once and never felt desire to watch again. At least Threshold is guilty-pleasure awful.

Re: The most mediocre episode?

As an aside, I'm sort of surprised there's no YouTube music video cutting scenes from Voyager with Oingo Boingo's "Weird Science" theme. Seems like they would fit, especially with Seven.

Re: The most mediocre episode?

SF debris did something similar with another "weird science" song, though I'm not sure who sang this one. He has an even bigger axe to grind against Janeway than I do though.

Re: The most mediocre episode?

Most mediocre....hmmm.

I'll go with "Tattoo" and "The Cloud".

"Tattoo"...I think I have never ever rewatched?

And "The Cloud"...other than Chakotay showing Janeway her animal guide and Janeway's famous quote "There's coffee in that nebula!", pretty mediocre episode.

There are a few other Season 1 / Season 2 episodes I can think of as well, like "Cathexis".

For my, it's bride of chaotica (or something). I know it was on the holodeck and it was in black in white. I remember I didn't like it.

I don't remember why.

Most mediocre? There are so many to choose from.
