Star Trek: Voyager: Basics, Part II  Rewatch   Season 3, Ep 1

It's the end of the end of the beginning, as it were, as the ship and the show leave some people and some familiar territory behind, so let us pause a moment to remember those lost: ye heroes, ye villains, ye villains-turned heroes, even ye murderhoboes. Never to be seen again, with the exception of the occasional holodeck malfunction, wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey incident, or historical recreation centuries hence. [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Basics, Part I  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 26

(Season Finale) Captain's log, stardate 49858.5—and I mean a literal log, I'm talking into a log right now. Stranded on a wilderness planet again *sigh*…second time this month. No sign of friendly monkeys, though. Well, at least my whole crew is with me this time. …Oh right, except for the doctor—and, um, one of his nurses. Hm. Well, maybe we won't end up needing any medical treatment. Wildman's baby looks pretty tough, what with the forehead spikes and all. Anyway, they're starting to stare at me, so I'd better wrap this up. Our first order of business: we're gonna need tubs. Lots of tubs. [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Resolutions  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 25

"I closed my eyes and sank deeper into the steamy bath, feeling my troubles and worries slip away. I was no longer a starship captain, really, no longer even a scientist after the oddly-precise storm destroyed all my technical equipment but left everything else untouched; now, I was just a woman. 'Everything OK, Kathryn?' I smiled, thinking of the man who was once my second-in-command, but now... now, just a man. A very considerate, thoughtful, available man. 'Better than OK, Com- I mean, Chakotay. Makes me wish that I'd gotten the incurable yet peculiarly asymptomatic space plague earlier. Say, you didn't happen to find a loofah out there, did you?'" -- from Passion's Pesilent Planet, Jane Katrina (pseud.) [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Tuvix  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 24

On stardate 49655.2, Lieutenant Tuvok was asked to remove himself from his ship of residence to collect samples. That request came from his captain. Deep down, he knew the transporter would malfunction on the way back, but he also knew that someday, he would return to her. With nowhere else to go, his transporter pattern merged with that of his crewmate, Neelix. Sometime earlier, Neelix's biological matter had thrown him out, requesting that he never return. Can two men share a body without driving each other crazy? [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Resistance  Rewatch   Season 2, Ep 12

“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!” ― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote [more inside]

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: 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]
