only to discover that it is merely a huge collection of episode synopses and PR blather from TPTB. really. was this a vast press release put out by Berman? all we get are rah-rah raves about VOY and how pleased Berman and co. are/were with it. all we get are long synopses of episodes. i guess there's a value in this but couldnt we simply get info like this from innumerable sites on the web?
I was hoping for a critical perspective on VOY that took a long view of its triumphs and occasional missteps, putting them all in perspective. the other Companions did that, from the excellent TOS one to the most recent DS9 one.
but this Companion is completely devoid of personality, bite, and interest. it is a COMPLETE waste of time and money unless youre eager to have a list of personnel and episode synopses. look for anything further and you, like me, will be sorely disappointed.
VOY was an uneven but deeply lovable and often brilliant show, and it deserved a nuanced and insightful treatment. The VOY Companion provides nothing whatsoever beyond dull and predictable standard information.
This book serves as a synopsis of the series in order, which may be useful if you're trying to find a particular episode to queue up on DVD. It is merely average, and would best be picked up used at a discount.
When I received this book, I immediately turned to some of the episodes that I thought had the most problems to read about what went wrong. I kept reading and reading and I didn't see any information about the "behind the scenes." I turned to another episode and another and still, no detailed information about the production of the episode.
The Voyager Companion is mainly a very detailed synopsis of each episode. There is information on what happens to the ship, shuttles, characters and more.
If you are looking for behind the scenes or production notes, you will not find it. Except for a few extra parts of the book about characters, aliens and others, you don't get anything. And even at that, it is usually Brannon Braga (the man who is killing Star Trek, in my opinion) quotes on how good the show is.
Overall, the book gives good episode information but really lacks in some "juicy" gossip or information about the episodes. If you need an episode guide, this a good to have but don't expect any insight to the show.
Still, it's a worthy part of the chronicles to the other Trek series and should not be omitted.
