Apparently, the episode "Threshold" (ST: VOY, Season 2, Ep. 11) is regarded by many Star Trek fans as one of the worst episodes ever, and some fans have even gone so far as to suggest it be removed from the canon. But this episode fulfills, as no other episode has, the optimistic vision of future evolution. Tom Paris and Captain Janeway are mutated into the far future descendants of humanity into large mudpuppies, living what appears to be a serene life in warm swamp water and breeding happily in tropical jungle. I can think of no better existence. We once were very similar to the creatures portrayed in this episode, and I have always looked back on that existence with a mixture of envy and evolutionary regret. We are now bipedal apes with swollen brains, filled with emotional and rational conflict. The projection of our evolution into these creatures is one of the boldest adventures Star Trek has ever offered. The optimism of such a future state of our species is compelling science fiction. Usually, sci-fi, and especially Star Trek, suggests that we will evolve into beings of pure energy and consciousness after some intermediate version that incorporates technology into our biological being. Instead, "Threshold" offers an alternative, more naturalistic, vision of returning to something much like what we once were hundreds of millions of years ago. I find this alternative vision of our future evolution refreshing and optimistic in the extreme. I would much rather be a mudpuppy than a manifestation of pure energy consciousness. To breathe through my skin again and lie placidly in a warm swamp is the most optimistic future I can imagine.
