Star Trek: Voyager Season One Review

Image for Star Trek: Voyager Season One

Janeway and the crew finally arrive on DVD


Voyager never enjoyed The Next Generation or DS9’s consistently top writing. Quality varied wildly in this first 16-episode season, but a likeable ensemble of characters and healthy doses of moral conflict developed interest.

TNG-esque stories fell back on time/spatial anomalies and holodeck misadventures, while season villains the Kazan were wannabe Klingons.

But the humanisation of Robert Picardo’s holographic doctor is a treat that played out brilliantly throughout the series.
