Event Horizon

Story: Parallax
Written By: Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Year: 1995

"Parallax" is okay. Its watchable Trek and addresses the issue of Maquis vs. Federation. The problem is with Technobabble. A good chunk of this episode is Janeway and Torres just spouting off battling technobabble at each other. You listen to them and then go “what the fuck are either of you to talking about?” Then you find out others have looked it up, or people that know what half the words they are saying mean, and strung together the way they’ve strung them together it is absolute gibberish.
So for the bit of character stuff we get, from Torres, Janeway, the Doctor, and Chakotay, I would say that this episode is all right. But the babble really brings it down, almost to unwatchable levels.
