The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Two

This is a game that was played here a couple of years ago, and it proved to be a lot of fun, spanning across each Trek series, as well as a great way to mentally revisit those episodes you may not have thought about in a while. With that in mind, why not play again?

So, 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 eliminate another episode.

No tactical voting! You cannot remove an episode because you feel they would threaten your preferred episode's chance to win.
Pretty simple. Enjoy!

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Two

I'll start off by removing Threshold. Do I really have explain this one? OK then, let's just remind you of the plot. Paris turns into a lizard. Yes, that's right. The writers of the show that's supposedly Science Fiction that this was a plausible storyline. Then Janeway also turns into a lizard and they mate as lizards and have lizard babies. And in the end, they go back to the ship, abandon their lizard babies, and joke about who made the first lizard move on whom.

Initiations - is it the character of Chakotay or just the writers' incapability to write good episodes for him?!?

The Thaw, I haven't seen an episode worse than this one. The idea is nice, but they could have tried to let it look a bit less like a madhouse.

I'll remove Tattoo. Ridiculous idea that Chakotay's tride has alien connections, also very convenient that they happen to ceom from the DQ. Also anyoen who can't man up for a nude scene doesn't deserve to go any further in this game.

Elogium - because of stupid writers. The Ocampan females can only have ONE child???? How is there even a population? It also invoked the USS Reset Button because it said "whoops, just kidding, she can still have a child later."

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Two

A lot of fairly average for VOY episodes with not much to choose between. But' I'm going for "Twisted" at least some of the other episodes whilst not the best of the season offered some small character moments

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Two

Alliances - it combines two of the things Voyager writers sucked at - Kazon and politics.

The writers created the Kazon without ever really thinking about it. They're space nomads (or street gangs) who have to hunt for water, yet they have giant warships. Does not compute. Thankfully Voyager did everyone a favor by writing out the Kazon in Basics.

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Two

Parturition - The writers noticed that Neelix's and Tom's character development were severely lacking, so they remedy that by making them fight over Kes.

"Set a course for PLANET HELL!"

Also, the writers have really been overusing their thesaurus.
