For my money, season three is one of the very best of Voyager. It's clearly a transitional year, from what I feel was a very weak season two to a more action-oriented, meaty, and fun season four.

The most superb episode of the season, and one of the best of Trek, is Scorpion Part 1, which introduces Species 8472. I remember watching this when it was originally broadcast. Back then the idea of a species "more powerful than the Borg" was almost unimaginable. The introduction of this alien race really injected some life into Voyager villainy, which had been mired for two seasons in the tired and rehashed Kazon story arc. Just look at the foreheads of those guys and tell me that they're not just a cross between Cardassians and Klingons. And we never met a Kazon female!

The other standouts in the third year of Voyager are Future's End, though the first installment is much more interesting and tightly scripted than the second; the engaging Distant Origin, which very cleverly presented its first couple of acts from the perspective of the dinosaur aliens; and Before and After. Not many praise that episode, but it does showcase some of Jennifer Lien's best acting, especially when she's a very confused 9-yr.-old at the episode's beginning. The backwards plot movement makes us wonder what happens next--meaning what happened before--along with Kes. We get at least a glimpse of what Kes might have developed into over the seven-year run of the show, are introduced to the Krenem, and the episode moves along the Torres-Paris romance subplot. We even get a passing reference to Kes' one lung (she donated the other to Neelix in season one). What's not to like?

I LOVE Star Trek Voyager, but there seems to be some cheap DVD manufacturing going on. I purchased this DVD set, and straight out of the box, there was a consistent glitch in the DVD. There are generally 4 episodes per disc. On all of them, except the last disc where there was a different format, the last 5 minutes (approximately) of the second episode and the first 5 minutes (again approximate) of the 3rd episode are missing. It locks up the player and nothing can be done. There were no visible scratches and the amount of time missing was very consistent. I tested all discs on several different players including a computer type DVD player, a regular television type player, and a portable DVD player. So... it is the discs, not the player. Other people leaving reviews did not all have this problem, so it may be an intermittent manufacturing problem, but it did happen to me also on a Season 4 set on disc 1. Considering this set is over $100, please take this possible defect into consideration.

On the actual content of the season, I loved it and have no complaints so my rating of 3 stars is based on an average. 5 stars for content, 1 star for quality of the manufactured product. I hope this is helpful to you. I have never experienced such an odd problem before and never saw it coming!

The first two seasons of Voyager had some great episodes but the show didn't seem to be going anywhere and once season three began, the show started to become old and worn out like the 1960's Enterprise. After the Kazon left the show Voyager started to get better I believe. The series started going on weekly adventures and it was fun. Some of my favorite episodes came out of season three like "Flashback", "Q and the Grey", and "Unity." My most favorites have to be "Blood Fever" where things heat up between Paris and Torres and we learn more about the Vulcan's, also a great Borg episode called "Scorpion, part I" which is considered one of Voyager's greatest episodes. There isn't really any awful episodes in season three but there is a share of weak and very forgettable episodes like "False Profits", "Rise" and a few others. Other then just a few weak episodes, this season was a great season which was the start of a long streak of great Trek seasons. If you like good Sci-Fi get these DVD's!!!

Star Trek: Voyager's third season began to see change, vital to saving the show. Season Three started to tell more complex, exciting, and epic-style stories. Moving away from the slowly evolving plot involving the Kazons was the producer's best decision, and allowed for a very appreciated change of pace. If it weren't for the more exciting and epic-style episodes that began in this season, Voyager would not have survived to its seventh season.

The only thing saving Voyager until this time was its overall plot, which attracted fans of similar "The Next Generation" and the original series, and the fact that it wasn't syndicated like Deep Space Nine.

Voyager's season finale, "Scorpion", is the biggest Star Trek cliffhanger since TNG's "Best of Both Worlds" and was voted Voyager's best episode in a 1999 Startrek.com poll.

Voyager really takes flight with shows like "Unity" and "Real Life", although Season Three had several stand-out episodes prior to them.

Season Three starts out with the conclusion to Season Two's cliffhanger "Basics". It's a satisfying ending for the conflict between the Kazon, although it should have ended far earlier than this.

Voyager's anniversary episode called "Flashback" didn't hold a candle compared to DS9's "Trials and Tribble-ations" however still had some good moments. The fact that the original cast from "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" guest starred was wonderful, but for Star Trek's 30th anniversary episode, it could have stood out more.

Season Three has a Ferengi episode ("False Profits"), which is always fun. The Ferengi only return once more in the season, and not until Season Seven. But it makes sense based on Voyager's plot.
