It took a full seven seasons to get there, but Voyager finally won a round against TNG and DS9. This was the best seventh season of Trek . . . so far. Voyager finally took the gold. Neither TNG nor DS9 turned in a particularly strong season. This much is true. But, even if both […]

The character Harry Kim had a line in these series finale episodes that I’ve taken to heart: “Maybe it’s not the destination that matters. Maybe it’s the journey.” I feel this way, in general, about this entire Boldly Going project, which I am now a stone’s throw away from completing. After watching “Endgame,” I am […]

The problem is that we’re comparing apples to apples here. I’m comparing all of the sixth seasons of TNG, DS9, and Voyager to each other. While Season 6 of DS9 was airing, Voyager was on Season 4. The fourth season of Star Trek: Voyager was unequivocally better than the sixth season of DS9. And, since […]

Of the three “Net-Gen” Trek series (TNG, DS9 and Voyager), one had to be my least favorite series. Consistently, that has been Voyager. I have to admit it was also in last place when I was still watching Enterprise as well. Somehow, the “lost in space” premise of this series has never come across as […]

In a previous post, I wrote that the fourth season of Star Trek: Voyager was my least favorite Season 4 of TNG, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise—the shows I consider to be Next-Gen Era Trek series (although Enterprise comes a little later). This doesn’t mean it’s bad television, or that I didn’t like it. It’s […]

I’ve already said that of the shows I refer to as the NextGen Trek series—TNG, DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise—Star Trek: Voyager ranks in last place as of the conclusion of the third seasons of all four shows. This sounds worse that it is, really. I ranked TNG in third place. All of the series […]

Neelix and Kes are my least favorite characters on Voyager. I just wanted to put that out there right at the beginning of this review of the second season. I’ll admit that this is a purely subjective thing, but any time that either of these characters spends too much time on-screen, my enjoyment of this […]

I just watched the pilot episode of Star Trek: Voyager. This was Caretaker: Parts 1 and 2, because the Star Trek Powers-That-Be like two-part first episodes. Short review: I liked it; I liked it a lot. Where to start? Well, let me think. I feel like I’m taking things a little out of order here. […]
