The Trekzone Review

And Voyager has found it’s space legs after three seasons of plodding along, dropping the occasional excellent episode or acting performance. The fourth spin off series finds where it fits in the grand scheme and doesn’t let up for forty four cracking minutes. We’re treated to seeing the Borg – apparently we all knew ‘this day’ was coming… although it was never mentioned…

Meantime, the talented John Rhys-Davies drops in for one of only a handful of special appearances as the great Leonardo DaVinci – or at least the holographic recreation of the great inventor. John’s accent and performance is superb and right on point. We’ll see him again next season.

Jennifer Lien finally gets to contribute in a meaningful way to the plot line as this Species 8472 is telepathic and conveying their sense of disgust with our form of biological lifeform to her. They’re now the powerful, indestructable kid on the block and it’s a good thing… the Borg never could be if we were going to be crossing their space in a tiny ship with 140 odd souls aboard.
