STAR TREK: VOYAGER is an unusual show in that its worst seasons were the earliest. Virtually all shows ever made were better in their first half than in the second half, but VOYAGER is one of the few exceptions. There are two reasons for the dramatic improvement in the show over its final four seasons. First, an increasing amount of serial content. No doubt part of this was the result of a growing number of other shows on at the same time with serial formats. Whatever the cause, as more and more elements carried over from one episode to later episodes, the more interesting the series became. The second reason for the improvement in the show was the emergence of Seven of Nine as the show's most compelling character. Very shortly after her introduction at the start of Season Four, Jeri Ryan's Seven of Nine became by far the most crucial character in most of the best episodes. VOYAGER did not, in fact, feel at all like the same show after Seven's appearance on the series. And as with the other three seasons featuring Seven, most of the best episodes on the show were Seven-centric.

Still, Season Five did not have as many truly excellent episodes as Season Four. On the other hand, it did not have nearly as man weak episodes as Seasons One through Three and Season Six. The two-part "Dark Frontier" is one of the exceptions, providing two of the most exciting episodes in the entire run of VOYAGER (again, a pair of episodes focused on Seven of Nine, as she temporarily returns to the Borg, learning that perhaps her having become a member of the crew of Voyager was part of a Borg plan). Still, the main virtue of Season Five is its persistent excellence, rather than its flashes of greatness.

There are some fun guest appearances in Season Five.

I reviewed season 4, sharing about what I believe, that Voyager contained some of the best "trek" writing to date -including Enterprise. Season 5 would probably have to be the summit. There are so many good episodes in this season. Even most Voyager fans agree by the ratings on StarTrek.com. To me, what makes great sci-fi is the ability to have a great storyline with plausible action - not too far fetched (if you know what I mean) By season 5 the focused character development is evidenced by detailed dialog and sub plots. One episode, 11:59 is interesting as a comparison to Next Generation. It begins with a hallway discussion that leads to a detailed sit-down share time. In Next Generation, Picard would have cut it off at the door - very predictable. Seven is now learning to be more human and shares her feelings, the comic relief throughout is quite good with the bantering of Tuvok/Neelix and Seven/Torres. Bride of Chaotica is a hoot. This brings me to another point. Overall, Voyager has many recurring plot loops. For example, Captain Proton was a thread in many episodes as were several other characters (Naomi Wildman). Voyager also improved their technology- they adapted. Quite a realistic possibility right? They kept tech they learned about and season 5 gives examples of this such as the creation of the Delta Flyer, a new shuttle with Borg weapons and shields. Voyager, unlike, the other ST series, built upon technology-This season also includes more character development. There are several episodes with focus on indiviual issues. The most dramatic involving Seven, the borg queen and Janeway. After all, the series really defines the mysterious borg. Seasons 4-7 of Voyager really help the viewer realize what borg are all about and they fit so well into the storyline. The final episode is great.Read more ›

Seasons three and four of Star Trek: Voyager were when the show put its feet on the ground and started to run. The writing got progressively better. There were a ton of GREAT GREAT episodes, but I must say that, in my opinion, this fifth season is the most consistent of the ones to date. There is some great storytelling in this season. Another great addition to the series was the Delta Flyer. Let's face it...the Delta Flyer was COOL! It added a whole new action dimension to the series. When this season came around, we had enough backstory to really dive into the lives of the characters. The Borg again return in "Dark Frontier". The Borg are ALWAYS a welcome sight. They bring action and mystery seemingly everytime they show up. Tom Paris is reduced in rank in one of my personal favorite episodes of the SERIES in "Thirty Days". How can you beat turning the Delta Flyer into a submarine? And then, of course, there is "Timeless". Productionwise the 100th episode of the series. Temporal mechanics and a ship crashing into the ice. Enough said! There is, again, a cliffhanger at the end of this season and it's a doozy. We find out that Voyager is not alone, and the other crew is nowhere near in as good a shape, physically and mentally, as Captain Janeway's valient crew. This is a great season of television. Enjoyable all the way through with very few duds. This could be the best season of the series.

Best Episodes:

Night, Drone, Extreme Risk, In the Flesh, Timeless, Thirty Days, Counterpoint, Latent Image, Bride of Chaotica, Bliss, Dark Frontier, Someone to Watch Over Me, Relativity, Equinox: Part I
