    Worst episode of any Trek.


    Although, 'tis true I might not be smart enough to recognize what's good and what's bad, given that my ancestors were so stupid, they couldn't develop language and survival skills without an infusion of alien genetics.


    Racist twaddle.

    As much of a fan as I am I have to admit episode quality could be "hit or miss". With the long string of misses that made up the second half of the 7th season I had to believe that a hit was statistically plausible. Pretty silly of me I know. ;)

    Can't Watch: Most of Fair Haven and Human Error, All of Spirit Folk and Unforgettable. Favorite Son was pretty stupid. Disappointed in Endgame, but thought it was pretty well done.

    You know, the only thing I like about the end of season 7 is the fact that we get to see a good up close shot of Janeway's boot... finally. That's pretty sad when you think about it.

    Thinking on it, can I just say the worst episode ever was all of the second half of season 7?

    Endgame was a great finale.... but it was actually better when it was called "All Good Things."

    I didn't care much for "All Good Things" either. Must have been the time travel...

    Iv got to disagree with you, i liked the threshold and the fight. I liked the bond between janeway and chuckles in the fight. BUT ENDGAME, was the worst to watch for a season finale, it seemed all rushed.

    My votes would go for (in no particular order):

    Threshold,
    Twisted,
    Cathexis,
    Tatoo,
    Projections,
    Infinite Regress,
    The Fight,
    11:59 (this was more boring than anything else)

    I really liked "Infinite Regress". I felt Jeri really pulled off that episode well. Though, I enjoy it specifically for Jeri's acting and not for the storyline.

    However, "Threshold" should never have happened. It should be wiped from the face of existence.

    ^ Ditto 'bout Infinite Regress.

    I still hold a grudge against Endgame. Hate it. Hate it like hell. Absolutely worst closure ever.

    Voyager's Spock's Brain episodes, that is, Cathexis (a.k.a. Chakotay's Soul), Threshold (a.k.a. Tom's Tongue), and The Fight (a.k.a. Chakotay's Sanity) are... Yes, terrible. But I liked Spock's Brain, and I think The Fight could work with a ton of editing. Threshold just confused me. And grossed me out. I still wonder why I watched it while eating.

    Unforgettable. The only episode (that's because I don't want to watch Human Error, or Natural Law) where I actually turned the DVD player off in the middle of the episode. The fact that I was playing with plaster at the time isn't my excuse. And it's not my JetCer persona talking, it's the rabid Voyager fan. I don't even know why; I just do.

    The swarm. Inappropriately titled since the swarm storyline was second to the doctor storyline.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr aggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh soooo much technobabble. I was embarrassed to watch this when my trek hating flat mate was in the same room. It made me feel like an uber geek for having it on. My flat mate was not impressed and I had to agree. The aliens were cool though.

    Has a decision been made? Should we post a poll or something?

    1. Threshold
    2. Course: Oblivion
    3. Demon
    4. The Fight
    5. Favorite Son

    I cannot even believe someone listed Timeless among these episodes. :eek: Different strokes, I guess. I thought that one was a masterpiece.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    All Good Things was neat, but I liked Endgame better when it was called Timeless.

    Kim actually had a reason to be bitter and change everything, Janeway however, not so much.

    I actually liked End Game and was bored with All Good Things. Call it a taste preference or whatever. But it is how I feel.

    As for Voyagers worst episodes...

    1. Threshold
    (Obviously Q was messing with the crew in this episode)

    2. The Fight
    (Just down right boring as heck)

    3. Nemesis
    (And the TNG movie with the same name sucks, too)

    4. Course Oblivion
    (Clones of the crew that melt... that's just great!)

    5. Homestead
    (The chances of Neelix finding others like himself past Borg space is like one in a 99 billion chance) (Not gonna happen)


    Side Note:

    Personally, I believe Neelix and the crew were duped into believing they ran into other Talaxians. In reality, the crew of Voyager left Neelix on a planet where Neelix's brains are being slowly sucked out (as food) by a mind altering and deceptive alien species.

    Hooray!!!

    :D

    Sure she did.
    She came home like Ripley in "ALIENS".

    She'd been gone so long and missed every oppertunity to have a family. She sacrificed everything to come home to nothing.

    She lost her "daughter", Seven.

    Seven even told her in "Imprefection" : "If I died now, you will never get over it."

    She lost her two best friends.
    Chakotay died of a broken heart
    Tuvok lost his mind.

    Tom & Be'Lanna were married and had their own lives to live.
    So they weren't coming by to keep her company often.
    Neelix was gone.
    Harry was a Captain and never was around.

    The only company she had was maybe the Doctor & Barclay.
    Janeway was going to die old and alone.
    Just like Kirk, it wasn't life she wanted.
