  1. Fans of “Voyager” must have spent the years of the Original Series, “Next Generation,” and “Deep Space 9″ living in a cave. “Voyager”‘s consistently miserable writing, mediocre effects, miserable writing, uninteresting/poorly developed characters, and miserable writing ruined the “Star Trek” franchise for good. No wonder “Nemesis” and “Enterprise” fared so poorly!

    Paramount could give me these DVDs for free and I still wouldn’t want them.

  2. Come on people. There was absolutely nothing original about this show. It was melodramatic and boring. Janeway’s politically correct starfleet line would put Madeline Albright to shame. No daring or original thought from here at all. Mulgrew’s portrayal of her was so stiff and withdrawn that one could care less if she lived or died.

    I watched the first season or two and was severly disappointed. I had the unfortunate occassion to watch the last episode. Needless to say I have NO desire to find out what happen in-between.

    This show made the first two seasons of TNG seem great.

    Just watch the original series, last five seasons of TNG and all of Deep Space and leave Star Trek at that.

    Paramount gave little thought to Voyager maintaining the Star Trek franchise. It was treated as the “Money Making Monster” that ‘Star Trek’ has become. Greed relentlessy dictacted the direction Voyager would take – AUTO DESTRUCT!

    * It’s all but impossible not to compare it to the other Star Trek series. Voyager is the worst of them all. Deep Space Nine is by far the best!

    * Voyager dwells too much on their return home and give it a “Lost In Space” feel – corny, stupid, dull and overly dependent on the special effects, i.e. read that as ‘weak story’.

    * The characters weren’t quite ‘real’ and as they developed the writers put the wrong people in certain situations Ex. Janeway would head missions just like Kirk did, a blatant abuse of protocol. Sometimes Tuvok (a full Vulcan) would be the most emotional character! Most of the rest of the cast would move from overwhelming a story to just ‘disappearing’. The ensemble cast element rarely existed and when it did the actors were most likely ‘out of character’. For the sake of screen time?

    * There were some fine episodes (none that I can think of in Season 1) but even most of my favorites wouldn’t make my best of list against Next Generation, DS9 or even some of the Original series!

    * Being Star Trek you would expect nothing short of great packaging (consensus says no) but Paramount is just peddling something the fans are so addicted to that they will buy it in droves, no matter the packing or…

    * High price for a short season, which is also one of the worst as far as stories go. It makes Next Generations’ season one look brilliant (it wasn’t).

    * The sad truth is the market was prepared for the onslaught of sales of a so-so series at a very high price with the poorest of packaging and the extreme hard core fans have left everyone else wondering why? Save your money, watch the reruns.

    Voyager is by far the worst Star Trek series. It started out ok but quickly went downhill. No amount of Jeri Ryan’s t&a could save it. To post this I had to give it at least a 1 star rating. The show doesn’t deserve that.

    If you want to see the best Star Trek series, go check out DS9. If you can’t get that, then go watch the original series, or TNG, or even Enterprise. But please don’t waste your time on Voyager.

    Trust me, you will regret it.

    I would seriously stay away from this show if I were you. It started out promising, but the writers just didn’t know how to take it to the next level, and so it stayed just a mediocre show. I have to admit, I just stopped watching around 4th season or so, it just got so boring…and I’m a complete Trek fan, I grew up on Star Trek, but Voyager just bored me to tears. I would still catch it every now and then, if I just happened to be flipping through channels and there was nothing better on, but I wouldn’t make it a point to watch every single episode like I did with TNG or DS9. But anyways, that’s my opinion, is that it is not worth your money.
