Story: Rise
Written By: Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Year: 1997

This episode is dull, silly, and stupid. The plot involves Voyager helping some race of people from Asteroids. Then when their help doesn’t do the trick, Tuvok and Neelix go on some away mission to find some doctor guy. From there it is a slow moving story with plot holes and an uninteresting story filled with plot conveniences and character studies that teach us very little about the characters.
It wasn’t a well made episode, its script lacks structure, and the performances from our regulars and the guests are all sub par. Nobody gave their all on this is a total filler episode, with action that never quite fits and characters acting irrationally and being rewarded for it.
