Story: The 37's
Written By: Jeri Taylor & Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
What a crock. This is just a terrible episode, no doubt in my mind. I mean they find some old truck, everyone talks about how ancient it is and then they head down to the planet to find Amelia Earhart? Give me a break.
Then the ends, they find out this planet has a peaceful human civilization (who greet them by shooting at the Voyager crew…) and they invite anyone who wants to live on the planet with them. I don’t buy the end where absolutely no one decides to stay. Its supposed to be inspirational but it is just another lame contrivance that I can’t convince myself it is realistic.
Terrible idea to even bring a conclusion to Amelia Earhart, but beyond that it is still just a bad, bad episode. Terrible way to begin the new season.
