After seven years the third spin-off series in the Star Trek
franchise comes to an end but will the crew of the starship Voyager finally
While some may argue that Voyager wasn't the most original
series in the franchise with cries from fans and critics alike that the
creative team behind the show were running out of ideas and rehashing what
had boldly gone before but the show did come into its own in the later seasons.
Gone were the spacial anomaly/transporter accident bottle shows that had
plagued the first few seasons to be replaced by character driven, action
packed episodes that pushed the show in a whole different direction.
With the introduction of the Borg in season four, Voyagers
action quota increase tenfold and pushed the show into a new direction.
While there were still the needed character driven shows and the odd spacial
anomaly/transporter accident thrown in for old times sake, the emphasis
was now with epic confrontations, hard choices and live or death situations.
This gave the series a new lease of life and drew Star Trek fans and casual
viewers to the show.
Season seven kept this momentum of quality episodes going
through the last season of the show but we also get to see some episode
that showcase the talents of the actors involved with the series. Chief
amongst these is the exceptional Robert Picardo. The Doctor is arguably
one of the best characters ever created in the Star Trek universe and will
be remembered along with Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Data, Picard, Worf, Odo and
Quark. He is the standout character of Voyager and this final season offers
the actor the chance to show you why. In episodes like 'Critical Care',
'Author, Author', 'Renaissance Man' and the two parter 'Flesh & Blood',
Picardo showcases his many talents and those of the Doctor, making it easy
to see why he is such a fan favourite.
Another character that has been at the forefront of many a
Voyager episode since joining the cast in season four is Seven of Nine.
Played by the stunningly beautiful Jeri Ryan, Seven had always been an intriguing
character since Janeway rescued here from the Borg. Throughout her four
seasons onboard, she has struggled to come to terms with her humanity and
her place on the ship. Over the years we have seen her grow, cultivate relationships
and friendships and fight the temptation to return back to the Collective.
This season is no exception with more standout episodes for the character
such as 'Human Error', 'Imperfection' and 'Body and Soul'.
The final season offers most of the characters their chance
in the spotlight and even Harry Kim gets an episode to shine (which some
might find impossible to believe). Chakotay gets 'Shattered', Neelix has
to make a momentous decision in 'Homestead', B'Elanna and Paris have to
make some difficult decisions in 'Lineage' and 'Prophecy', Harry Kim gets
command of his own ship in 'Nightingale' and Capt. Janeway finds love in
'Workforce'. Each of these episodes gives the actors the chance to really
showcase their characters and is an excellent way to round off a series.
Star Trek Voyager ends with one of the best finales of all
the series. While the 'Next Generation' and 'Deep Space Nine' ended quite
uneventfully, 'Voyager' throws everything at you in 'End Game'. With the
return of the franchises best villain, the Borg and Alice Krige reprising
her role as the Borg Queen for the first time since 'First Contact', the
finale already felt special. Even though they use that old Star Trek stalwart
time travel again, the show is gripping from the off until the brilliant
conclusion that will have fans rejoicing. This is truly a fitting finale
for a great piece of science fiction television.
The final season of Star Trek Voyager is a joy to watch. With
far more good episodes than bad, the seventh year is one of the best and
another reason to herald the show as a huge success. In the words of Tuvok
'may it live long and prosper' in the echelons of television history.
PICTURE & SOUND

Paramount has done another excellent job with the packaging of Star
Trek Voyager on DVD. The picture and sound quality of the episodes is
first rate and the bonus features are as good as ever, covering most aspects
of the season production. While a few commentary tracks on episodes wouldn't
have gone a miss and the sets are a little expensive (Shop around), this
is still an excellent package for Voyager fans to say goodbye to the show.
