The epic Vegas or Bust tour kicks off in our flashback series – July 2019… before Covid19 was a thing… we were living large in
Having lost contact with a Starfleet operative undercover with a Maquis cell, Captain Kathryn Janeway and the new U.S.S. Voyager is tasked with finding them. Once inside the badlands however, the ship is caught by a displacement wave and is hurtled 70, 000 light years to the Delta Quadrant…
The Trekzone Review
There’s no rest for me, I’m straight into Voyager from The Next Gen and I’m going to alternate season for season as I push hard to finish off the episode reviews to make TREKZONE.org nice and complete. I think having just watched All Good Things has put me in a good mindset for a new series to kick off.
As I said over on that episode, I wasn’t sad that the series ended… the writing felt tired, but I don’t think that’s because they were in the seventh season, I think it’s because the executive team were really busy trying to make this series. And not just make Voyager, but fit it into a network mould – a mould that would eventually prove to be the downfall of Trek on the small screen.
Focusing on this episode it was a nice mix of action and stark realisation that our new heros are so far from home. And I know that many of the subplots setup here (limited resources, Maquis v Starfleet etc) will eventually fall by the wayside it was nice to see some attention placed on the negative feelings that the Maquis have against Starfleet – one stemming from I guess a feeling of abandonment rather than hatred.
Thankfully I know that each of these characters will fit into their skins over the coming episodes, and that the pilot episode will always be a little rough and a little forced… you can look past that and say “Hey, new Trek!” Lets have fun with this…
