Star Trek: Voyager: Twisted  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 6

Star Trek: Voyager: Non Sequitur  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 5

Life is apparently pretty good for a talented young Starfleet officer fresh out of the Academy: nice San Francisco apartment (small, but with a hell of a view), beautiful fiancée, promising budding career as a propulsion engineer with the Starfleet Engineering Corps, even a local barista who knows his favorite drink order by heart. Sure, he didn't get that shipboard assignment that he wanted, but given Voyager's disappearance in the Badlands with all hands missing, even that's for the best. So... what's the matter with Harry?

Star Trek: Voyager: Projections  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 3

Once upon a time, I, the Emergency Medical Hologram, dreamt I was a man, walking hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a man. I was conscious only of my happiness as a man, unaware that I was the EMH. Soon I awoke, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a hologram dreaming I was a man, or whether I am now a man, dreaming I am a hologram. Or maybe it's just another damn holodeck malfunction? And what the hell was Lieutenant Broccoli doing there? [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: The 37's  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 1

According to Wikipedia, the Milky Way Galaxy is about 100,000 light years in diameter, and an average 1000 light years thick. Doing the math, that puts the Delta Quadrant (¼ of the Milky Way) at a volume of a bit under 2 trillion cubic light years. And, in that staggering volume, Voyager, which is 343 meters in length, comes across a truck (truck-sized), specifically a 1936 Ford pickup. Which can still start on the first try. And that's not the least likely thing that they'll find that day... [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Jetrel  Rewatch   Season 1, Ep 15

Star Trek: Voyager: Ex Post Facto  Rewatch   Season 1, Ep 8

It was a cold night in the bad quadrant. I was playing flyboy for the kid, Kim. Hired hand, that's all. The skies were black with rain on the way down. Nothing I couldn't handle. I brought the kid dirtside to meet some physicist. They got to talking, and before too long, I'm the third nacelle. Get two science guys together? Forget it. I'd just about checked out altogether…when she walked in. Legs like the Pleasure Goddess of Rixx, forehead like a Terran horny toad. It figured. Next thing I know, she's on me like a Denevan neural parasite. And me without an ultraviolet light source. Some luck. [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Phage  Rewatch   Season 1, Ep 5

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: When It Rains...  Rewatch   Season 7, Ep 21

...it pours... plot twists. The Klingons hold the key to victory over the Dominion, and a canny and judicious leader could use that to hold them at bay until the entire Alliance was ready to join them; unfortunately, the Empire has Gowron. Kira changes her clothes and Garak makes a call. Dukat finds out that when the Pah-wraiths say "for the Kai's eyes only", they mean it. And the only cure for someone's fever (not the sexy kind) isn't more cowbell, and Bashir and O'Brien have to go to the last people (ostensibly) on their side who they want to see to get it.

(Series Finale - Part 3 of 9) Unfortunately, despite the title, not a bedroom farce (with the deliberate exception of The Power Couple Who Shall Not Be Named), but still plenty to chew on: Martok reveals to Sisko that the real war has just begun, a prisoner is a pain in the neck for Weyoun, Quark pours one out for a homie, Damar considers the man in the mirror (prior to asking him to change his ways), Winn does a heel/even-worse-heel turn, and Worf and Ezri?

I know thee not, old man: fall to thy prayers; How ill white hairs become a fool and jester! I have long dream'd of such a kind of man, So surfeit-swell'd, so old, and so profane; But, being awaked, I do despise my dream.
