Star Trek: Voyager - Season 3 Recap
I can’t believe this series was able to keep so many Trek fans watching throughout its run. Hell I’ve seen plenty of people online who seem to love it. With what I’ve seen so far, and of what I know of subsequent seasons, I can’t see why. What I loved about Trek, science-fiction wise, was that it was based on real science and real projected science, not just any fantasy to wander into a writers head. And throughout the original series, the films, TNG, and DS9 writers were able to adhere to this idea...slipping occasionally. But with Voyager it has just plain made up science and fantasy that makes little sense in the Trek universe. Science was thrown out for just silly nonsense.
I read that Season Three was the year Voyager came into its own. If this is true then it’s own is horrendous. The Borg element was introduced, and quite frankly that was the best part of this season.
So Season Three...yikes. I can’t say I liked it. I liked “Unity” and “Scorpion” a few other ones, but the characters have not grown and they are more grating than charming and each episode was a crapshoot in the quality department....and mostly it was gonna be crap.
