    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!

    My first save of season 5 is "NOTHING HUMAN". I'm doing my usual production saving. (Which, by the way, is the actual 100th episode produced, despite "TIMELESS" being pimped out as the 100th.)

    This was a good dramatic episode, filled with great back and forths on medical ethics. A fitting last episode in the franchise for Jeri Taylor.

    Trek obviously struggles mightily in all areas of romance, but "Someone To Watch Over Me" is one of their most successful forays in this area. I find it a beautiful episode.

    Timeless is one of my favourite episodes, so it's an easy save for me.

    "Bride of Chaotica!" was fun. I always found the "Captain Proton" setting a delight. In this go-round, Kate chewed scenery with abandon, and the EMH was a perfectly-movie-serial-style President of Earth.

    "Bliss" is an episode I only recently discovered and it is DELIGHTFUL. It's just so fun, the whole thing. It may (intentionally) make me laugh more than any other VOY episode.

    "COUNTERPOINT" is my next save. A rather typical plot, but so well acted and the chemistry was so good, it totally elevates the story.

    Relativity. It's a fun adventure that takes the fact that people can easily time travel in star trek to it's logical conclusion. I like this version of Braxton, especially his future, strung out self. I also liked his mildly irritated Lieutenant, and Seven was good as usual, especially in a uniform.

    "Course: Oblivion" may not have been especially plausible, but wow was it emotionally engaging. I was totally caught up in the efforts, and the feels, and the fate of the duplicate crew.

    Side note: So this seems to be my season for picking oddly-punctuated titles -- first "Bride of Chaotica!", now this. Next up: "11:59"? (Probably not. I thought that one was kinda boring.)

    I 'think' my next save will be...

    (wait for it)





    "THINK TANK". I love the idea, and they were quite an imaginative lot. Jason Alexander was great as Kurros.

    Saving “Thirty Days,” one of the best Tom Paris episodes of the series, the water world was well created and we finally meet the Delaney Sisters.

    Removing Equinox. It has always been one of my favorites where we see a darker version of Voyager’s journey where they resort to genocide to power their journey home.

    Dark Frontier; even if it was the point where they really started nerfing the Borg, there’s some good character stuff here for Seven.

    Saving Drone. I love this little tale of the Doctor and Seven's offspring. Seeing Seven's face right at the end always floors me.

    "Gravity" is another one I've recently discovered for the first time, and it really impressed me. It wasn't until really seeing this ep that I understood what people like about Tuvok so much.

    Taking a chance on “Extreme Risk,” Roxann Dawson did an amazing job in this episode and we are introduced to the Delta Flyer.

    :::Brennyren looks around nervously, whispers::: I kinda like "The Fight." It had some neat weird stuff, it had Ray Walston (always a plus) channeling Burgess Meredith, it had Robert Beltran actually making an effort. I liked Ned Romero as Chakotay's crazy granddad.

    Night, as I like how Janeway’s more introspective than usual in this episode, and the scenario’s the kind of thing that Voyager’s concept lends itself well to.

    Saving "INFINITE REGRESS". Jeri Ryan acted the hell out of this episode. If there were any people who thought she was just T and A before this episode had to agree she was FAR more than just looks.

    Latent Image is a good episode in many regards, it's just a shame that the dead member of the crew wasn't someone we'd already knew previously. It's also a little questionable that the crew would delete his memories this late in the series. Season 2 or even 3 maybe, but now?
