Re: A Hater Revisits Voyager Agreed. I can't stand this episode. Before it aired, this was another episode that I was hoping to enjoy, what with the crossover from Next Generation's "The Price" and my love for many of (though not all of) the DS9 Ferengi themed episodes. What we got was almost unwatchable. I rewatched the first 4 seasons of Voyager a few years ago, and I had to shut this one off. Ugh. I'd rate this one higher (***). I just think the message of the episode is so powerful (and important) that it trumps the negatives of the episode. And I love B'Elanna and Janeway here - and at this point in the series I was happy with any nice Janeway moments. All the Voyager crewmembers seem to be sane. It's not an amazing episode, but it's an important episode, and to me that makes it worthwhile. If they had strived to do more important episodes, even if they'd failed, the series would have been better off IMO, if that makes any sense. So many times they have a crap episode and I don't even get the point of it - or I do get the point, but it's a fairly stupid one. The more I think about this episode, the more it feels like a Season 1 effort, which from me, is a compliment.
