Story: Mortal Coil
Written By: Bryan Fuller
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
There is a lot I find wrong with just the premise of this episode. First, its a Neelix focused episode, so that is enough for me to hate it. Second, you can’t tease me with Neelix’s death and then bring him back, that is just cruel. Third, they use Borg technology in order to bring him back to life, which seems like a compromise no one would really make, especially considering how hard they’ve worked to un-Borg Seven. So I have issues with the very premise that gets this episode going.
I have to give Ethan Phillips credit, he does a good job with the material, despite the fact that I mostly despise his character and the idea that people really like him. But hey...at least theirs an atheist message to it!
