Well, it’s finally here: the premiere episodes of the first new Star Trek series since 2001, Star Trek: Discovery. “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars” are less a pilot for a new series and more a prologue, as it sets up the events of the series but doesn’t directly deal with our setting or most of our characters. Does it work? Listen and find out!
We wrap up the adventures of Voyager’s crew in the strange alien land of Los Angeles, 1996 in “Future’s End, Part II”, and it’s only kind of successful at paying off the first installment. Then, Jennifer Lien gets a chance to shine in “Warlord”.
Star Trek: Voyager continues its upswing this week by giving us a Janeway episode, “Sacred Ground”, in which she is challenged to put aside her devotion to the scientific method. Then, in “Future’s End”, the show does something so batshit that you just have to admire it.
Welcome to the third season of Star Trek: Voyager! Michael Piller has stepped down and Jeri Taylor has all these great ideas for the show, we assume. So why the hell did we have to suffer through “Basics, Part II” and “Flashback”?
The USS Voyager gets duplicated for let’s say the seventeenth time in “Deadlock”. Then, in “Innocence”, Tuvok gets marooned on a planet with a group of children. These plot summaries haven’t been very promising, Star Trek: Voyager.
