    Removing Maneuvers, because I like the kind of gamesmanship Seska brought to the show and I think it's the most memorable thing in season 2.

    If we can vote for the winner, cast mine for "Juggernaut" at this point. :p Not eliminating any right now as I feel I did so too recently.

    Eliminating emanations. Harry (nearly) dying is nothing unusual. However, Harry doing so on purpose, that's relatively rare.

    Let's forget Remember. It's a bit of a mind-screw episode, with lots of flashbacks and dream sequences.

    I don't have a clever way to take out "Parturition", but I think it's safe to say a food fight in a Trek episode is pretty non-generic, even by Voyager standards.

    "INITIATIONS" has been graduated from this list. It'a a rare look into the culture of the Kazon, despite them not being a successful villain. A species of gangs... didn't work, but at least it was different.

    And now we are down to the last 3 episodes.

    All three are formulaic and mediocre deja vu experiences however one is less so than the two others.

    Juggernaut is subdued as the "radiation monster" is a nice addition.

    I know which one I would vote as 'Most Generic', but I am going to let someone else have the honor of the final elimination.

    I voted Natural Law just because I didn't have to google Favorite Son to remember what the hell it was.

    It looks like "NATURAL LAW" is the winner, based on the votes so far.

    I read the episode description when I voted, and I already can't remember anything about it.

    Maybe it's because that episode is nothing but a conglomerate of Voyager clich├ęs.

    The poll closes after a week. Turnout was a little disappointing, but there was a clear preference to declare NATURAL LAW was the most generic episode of Voyager.

    It featured Seven of Nine solving problems with Borg knowledge, Chakotay rambling about nature, aliens with bumpy foreheads and Tom Paris flying recklessly.

    Now we move on to The Next Generation!

    Great! I for one found it an enjoyable experience. :)

    (The Thread not Natural Law)

    Looking forward to TNG.
