Star Trek: Voyager: Worst Case Scenario  Rewatch   Season 3, Ep 25

Even with the improvements in the current version of the game, sometimes it's fun to fire up Voyager 1.0 and give it a whirl, just for a little nostalgia for when things were new and rough around the edges... just watch out for that one end boss that was surprisingly tough to beat. [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Distant Origin  Rewatch   Season 3, Ep 23

A reptilian species makes contact with humanity; although they seem friendly at first, these aliens, with technology far in advance of our own, known as V, have intentions that--wait [scans through index cards quickly, throws them down, picks up another pile]--never mind; here we go. Initially set in 60,000,003 BC in Pangaea, the show centers on the Sinclair family: Earl Sinclair (the father), Fran Sinclair (née Phillips - the mother and Earl's wife), their--damnit. [throws index cards in the air] Dinosaurs. Talkin' dinosaurs, that's what we got here. [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Before and After  Rewatch   Season 3, Ep 21

Out, out, brief candle!/ Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player/ That struts and frets his hour upon the stage/ And then is heard no more. / Unless the Doctor tries to alter the Ocampan lifespan with a thingymabob;/ Then all bets are off. [more inside]

Star Trek: Voyager: Favorite Son  Rewatch   Season 3, Ep 20

Is Harry Kim truly the Alien Boy who Lived, the Extraterrestrial Prince that was Promised? But how could it be? If only there were something that would cause him to push back more against this preposterous premise, something that would tie him closer to Voyager, like, say, I dunno, just one lousy promotion...

When an alien whose primary role on the ship was to be their local guide is on the verge of boldly going where this particular Talaxian hasn't gone before, what's he to do? Suggestion: this would not be a good time to break bad. [more inside]

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: 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: 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: 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.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Strange Bedfellows  Rewatch   Season 7, Ep 19

(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? They're just hangin' out. [more inside]
