This is interesting because it features a very different kind of lifeform: Robots. I feel the episode is for the most part solidly written, well performed and directed. I give the credit to Michael Piller who apparently was the only producer fighting for the episode and I give credit to Jonathan Frakes for doing a good job directing.
“Prototype” is a good episode. It’s nice to say good and not feel like I’m saying “good for Voyager’s standards”. It is actually good…not great, it still has some Voyager flaws, which I chuck up to the lousy production team, but I think Frakes and Piller were able to put in enough effort that this one actually turned out pretty good.
