Story: Life Line
Written By: Robert Doherty, Raf Green, and Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Voyager gets a message from home, and the Doctor is informed that Dr. Lewis Zimmerman, his creator, is dying. The Doctor can see a way of treating his creator and asks Janeway to send his data-stream home in order to treat Zimmerman. So in this episode we get double the Picardo, Barclay, and Troi...and a lot less of the rest of the Voyager crew. Solid plan for success.
I definitely enjoyed this one, and I think this is really what the show should just be. I know that makes little sense, but I just find these kind of stories to be far more effective than most other Voyager episodes.
