    This is a twist on a game that is played here, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    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 most favorite or the one you deem the 'best.' 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!

    I'll start season 2 by saving a season 1 produced episode, "PROJECTIONS". A great mind bender as we try to figure out what's real or not, and a wonderful Doctor showcase. Always a rewatch.

    From this season, I have watched "Basics" more than any other. It is such a pure distillation of the 90's cliffhanger ethos. The nostalgia hit I get from this one is unbeatable. I was just watching the last act again yesterday!

    (Weirdly, I never watch part II)

    Not gonna lie, I would save "Resistance" if only for being the one with Joel Grey. (VOY got Joel Grey! Suck it, every other Trek series!) But it's also a good story, and Kate does some quality work.

    "Persistence Of Vision" is a fun, spooky one. And I always liked when Kes got to save the ship.

    Tuvix, for making what should have been a totally absurd premise work, and for having the guts not to have Tuvix just blithely agree to sacrifice his existence to restore Tuvok and Neelix.

    "MANEUVERS" was an excellent cat and mouse game. Seska was great here. Always a rewatch.

    I'll save THE THAW. The Clown was creepy AF but Mulgrew was even creepier at the end.

    "Lifesigns" is an exceptional ROTW. Very poignant. Marred only by those stupid Jonas scenes.

    I'll save "The 37s". Always had a soft spot for Amelia Earhart. Also think it works better as a Season finale than season opener.

    That was produced as the season 1 finale. Damn network interference.

    I will save "MELD" next. Great episode on the nature of violence. And Brad Dourif is always a win in any role.

    Tim Russ gave Tuvok some real (Vulcan-style) warmth and depth in "Innocence." I love how he could give his character such personality, while still maintaining Vulcan levels of restraint. His interaction with the children was great.

    The B'Elanna episodes this year are very strong. I'll save "Prototype." Those robots work way better than they have any right to.

    Gotta save "Investigations," the culmination of the Jonas plotline, Paris' undercover assignment reveal and it resolves in an unexpected way: because Neelix got into journalism/having his own morning show.

    Terok Nor...

    There was only one elimination before you saved "THE 37's". I will have to place it back on the list because of this.

    Death Wish. Voyager’s Q arc may have gone horribly wrong in subsequent seasons, but this was a pretty effective start to it.

    I'll save Alliances. It was a pretty good episode until the last 5 or 10 minutes. I liked the idea of Janeway having to compromise her Starfleet philosophy to survive in the Delta Quadrent. By the end it was business as usual though.

    Since "The 37s" is available for saving again, I'll do the honors. I'm an old Earhart fangirl myself. And the scene in the cargo bay was genuinely moving.
