Re: VOY S7: Endgame

I'm a very (very, very) casual voyager fan and I've never seen any other star trek shows so take my comment with a grain of salt, but I've watched Voyager on Netflix for the past few months and I am utterly confused why anyone thinks Seven and The Doctor should have ended up together. Time and time again she shows zero interest in the Doctor: she makes it very clear when she kisses him on the cheek that it's platonic; she tells him that there is no one of interest on the ship to her--very directly implying to him that he is included in that assessment; he flat out tells her he is in love with her and she still does not want him; and in the last episode, she tells him she does not want his "assistance" with learning how to have a relationship. It would have been at the expense of her character if the writers indulged in that male fantasy of the beautiful woman finally realizing that she loves the less attractive, nerdy guy.

Now as for her and Chakotay (who was duller than dull, in my eyes), I think the actors actually did well considering the last-minute wrap up of it (and looking back, those two do make more sense together than Seven/The Doctor. I wish the writers would have realized it sooner though). Plus, I like seeing two pretty people kiss...so there's that!

Re: VOY S4: Hope and Fear

I have been rewatching all of Voyager on Netflix (the last time I saw the show was when it aired during my middle and high school years!). Along the way, I have also been reading many of your reviews, Jammer.

So far, it seems like you worship DS9 and have a bit of disdain towards Voyager, mostly because it's NOT your beloved DS9...

On that note, I think it is hilarious that a Voyager episode finally manages to draw you in enough for strong emotional attachment, and you get seriously PO'ed about it! How whiney.

I enjoy your writing style and like recapping each episode afterwards, but I do wish you had had a bit more objectivity at the time. Too bad I didn't catch these when I caught up on DS9 a couple years back. All the trek shows are great, so it's kind of sad that you couldn't enjoy VOY more on it's own merit!
