The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Five

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!

The Next Generation - The Measure of a Man
Deep Space Nine - In the Pale Moonlight

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Five

Taking out Nothing Human.

This is an awful episode, preachy, hypocritical, racist, superficial and nonsensical. They made a complete mess out of the whole hologram thing - if the Crell Moset Hologram was sentient (the episode is treating him as if he were Crell Moset himself, which makes no sense), then the Doctor committed a murder. If the Crell Moset Hologram is cruel and ruthless like Moset was, it's that way because the Doctor programmed him that way. If he is just a bunch of information, then why the heck does he talk as if he's Crell Moset and why is he treated that way?

The whole conflict is contrived and makes no sense - B'Elanna doesn't initially protest because the medical information was obtained through torture and murder of Bajorans, she threw a hissy fit because the Hologram looked Cardassian. (Not even because he looked like Moset - she had no idea what he looked like. Then the episode went out of its way to justify her racism.) The solution was simple: "Computer, set appearance parameters to Human/Bajoran/something else other than Cardassian."

11:59 - no one cares about Janeway's ancestors. An odd concept that fell completely flat.

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Five

The Disease is a very silly episode. Why should the crew have to get the okay to have sex with aliens? Is Janeway a pervert? It must be Neelix's doing.

I'll vote again as teya beat me to getting shut of The Disease. Gravity is a boring episode, so that can go.

Always. If it involves Harry Kim and a female, it's gonna be bad times for Harry. Janeway even chews him out like she's his mom. So bad.

Think Tank - all I remember is Jason Alexander acting like a creepy sex offender, hungry for Seven.

I'll remove Course: Oblivion, which is a very bad sequel to a very bad episode. The silver blood duplicates the ship? How lame.

Agreed!

Extreme Risk is really annoying by having B'Elanna be depressed for one episode. I really like her, but she's all over the map this season.

There is precedent for it. He tried to rape Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Five

They say that thirty dyas is a long time, but not long enough for this episode. The events of this episode were a wasted oppotunity, they should have promoted Kim following Tom's demotion allowing them to change the character dynamic between the two.

Re: The least disliked episode of VOY - Season Five

Night - There are no stars in space, and Janeway spends most of the episode in hiding and depressed. It's random writing like this that makes even Mulgrew agree that Janeway is bi-polar.
