    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 the last season is between 3 episodes... so I will do it by production order.

    "BODY AND SOUL"... Jeri Ryan did an amazing acting job getting all the inflections right with The Doctor's character. That alone makes this episode a treat to watch.

    "Imperfection" is my favorite this season. That episode really packs a punch. The conflict is such a great articulation of Star Trek values, and I tear up (or fully cry!) at that ending every time.

    Shattered. One last hurrah for Seska. Nice to see the different time frames coming together to defeat her at the end.

    Saving "THE VOID" next. I always loved this episode. Janeway bringing people together in a little mini-Federation was great, and a sort of more successful turn of "ALLIANCES", another episode I alwats loved.

    Removing Critical Care. One of the Voyager episodes that actually makes a culturally relevant point.

    I always find it odd that "The Void" is such a meaty, big, Trek-y story that would have made a PERFECT two-parter, but is instead heavily rushed in one episode -- to be immediately followed by "Workforce", a flimsy wisp of a story, padded to within an inch of it's life in order to fill two hours.

    And speaking of two-hour eps, I'll save "Flesh And Blood." It's not perfect, but it's a big, fun story that justifies it's extended runtime. And I love it's showcase of every Trek alien amidst the holograms.

    "LINEAGE" is next on my list. Great performances by Dawson and McNeill, they really make their marriage feel real. I always liked the episode, but I rewatched it recently for the first time in over a decade. Being married now gave me a new appreciation for this episode, as well as a number of other ones of the franchise. Roxann Dawson is a really underrated actress... her and Lien are the only VOYAGER regulars I haven't met yet. I'd love to pick her brain on her directing.

    Author, Author; even though its main plot beats feel recycled from "The Measure of a Man" and "Living Witness", it's still put together well enough to be a solid episode.

    I'm a huge fan of the Overlookers, so I enjoyed another go-round with them in "Renaissance Man."

    "HOMESTEAD" was a great Neelix episode and a good farewell.

    I'll save Workforce. I love seeing the ECH in action in this two-parter, an actual follow-through of something that happened in a previous episode. I also love seeing Tom trying to look out for B'Elanna even though they have no memory of each other.

    The second half of Workforce wasn't quite as good as the first, but it was a decent enough episode overall.

    "Repression" would have made a hell of a lot more sense in season 1 or 2, but I still have fun with it's Scooby-Doo-esque mystery plotting. And hey, it also makes a good companion piece to "Field Of Fire" from DS9!

    I'll save "NIGHTINGALE". Funny B story with Icheb, and Harry got a good lesson about command.

    I’ll save Prophecy. Just for the part where Neelix seduces a Klingon.

    Drive is worth saving just for the Tom and B'Elanna scenes, and "Wacky Races in Space" is a concept that works better than it has any right to.

    "REPENTANCE" was a good episode. Jeff Kober did a great job as a guest star.
