    It IS beautiful.. so rich in color, so soft and smooth and sleek.. yet with body. Sensuous, voluptuous body.

    Why is that the Bev's ghost porn episode and Up the Long Ladder are two of the worst episodes of TNG, and strangely they both deal in stereotypes? Throw in Code of Honor, and you start to see what themes make a bad Trek ep.

    No I don't.

    IMO, the quality of the episodes isn't dependent on the season, and surprisingly, this is a first in all trek series (again, IMO). Voyager has some fantastic episodes, but it also has some ones that you just face palm at.

    The Omega Glory and These are the Voyages would be my most despised episodes.

    Hmm, makes sense. I haven't seen the former in a long, long time but I recall disliking it. As for the latter... well, it's a pretty bad Valentine.

    Well, I must admit that I did not expect for this thread to still be floating around on the first page of the Voyager threads. And, with that said, I must also admit that I am considering picking up on Voyager from where I left off. BUT, only because it could be awhile until my TNG blu ray replacement disks arrive. I wonder, is it worth it......???

    It is worth it (for us to read, that is).

    Why do you need replacement disks?

    And yes, we kept the thread warm for you. Welcome back!

    Because 3 of the disks are defective. Everyone who pre-ordered the set received defective disks, so we're all waiting to get our replacements.

    And thank you for taking such good care of the thread while I was gone. I hope it wasn't too much trouble...

    Defective disks? That's bad...

    Welcome back to the thread, by the way.

    I'm looking forward to your analysis! You still have my personal favorite episode to get to.

    Cold Fire & Warlord are two of my all-time favourite Voyager episodes. (They're both the 10th episodes of seasons 2 & 3 respectively.)

    Of course it's worth it Admiral! There are lots of good episodes ahead.

    That has always been my theory. Tom builds the Delta Flyer from Scratch, and when it gets destroyed in one of Janeway's Borg crusades ("Unimatrix Zero") they build the Delta Flyer 2 and test drive it an epi or so later (in "Drive"). So SOMEONE is clearly building shuttles -- I imagine a small team of B'Elanna's engineers hammering away in a cargo bay on a full time basis. I mean, what do those 145+ people do, some of whom we only ever get to see wondering the corridors or hanging out in the mess hall? (Oh, and I think the shuttles Tom wrecks/crashes tend to come back to be fixed -- as in "Once Upon a Time" or "One Small Step". When Chakotay gets hold of them, they are GONE, baby, GONE.)

    As for the main thread -- does it get better? There are some really good ones in Seasons 2 and 3, but 5, 6 and 7 have the highest percentage of winners in my book. The one I mentioned above, "One Small Step," ranks among the best hours of Trek -- if you look at it as expounding on the wonders of space exploration.
