The complete sixth season of the TV series Star Trek Voyager.
In their sixth season trying to return to the Alpha Quadrant, the crew of Voyager continues to find signs that they may be close to home. They ran across another Federation starship in the season 5 cliffhanger, "Equinox," which is concluded in action-packed fashion. Then they benefit from a brief communications link to home thanks to the ongoing efforts of The Next Generation's Lt. Reginald Barclay (Dwight Schultz), occasionally assisted by Counsellor Troi (Marina Sirtis). "One Small Step" sets Voyager on the trail of NASA's first manned mission to Mars (one of the bonus features details Robert Picardo's post-Trek work with NASA).
In other episodes, Torres (Roxann Biggs-Dawson) tests the limits of Klingon honor ("Barge of the Dead"), Tuvok (Tim Russ) stretches his emotions ("Riddles), Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) and Kim (Garrett Wang) embark on a new holdeck program, wrestling superstar the Rock makes a gimmicky guest appearance ("Tsunakatse"), a former crew member returns ("Fury"), and the crew discovers a group of abandoned Borg children ("Collective"). The two most interesting characters continue to be the Doctor (Picardo) and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan). The former stretches out numerous times ("Tinker, Tailor, Doctor, Spy," "Virtuoso," "Life Line"), and we learn more about Seven's Borg past in "Survival Instinct" and the season closer, in which Seven discovers that during regeneration she can enter a dream world called Unimatrix Zero. There she meets a number of mutated Borg who can exist in this world in their pre-assimilation state and who also present an idea for destroying the collective from within. The Borg Queen, however, discovers the plan and ends the season in a nightmarish cliffhanger that recalls the great Next Gen episode "The Best of Both Worlds." --David Horiuchi

My favorite episodes are #10 Pathfinder and #20 The Good Shepherd.
Pathfinder brings back Lt. Barkley, the holodeck loving engineer from the Next Generation. This episode Barkley is in charge of a communications array. He has a theory that if a space anomaly comes by Pathfinder, that they could send some energy beam and bounce it off this anomaly. This would create a miniature wormhole and that they could send a message to Voyager. But his boss thought Barkley was too involved with the Voyager holograph crew. Great episode.
The Good Shepherd has the Captain dealing with 3 crewmen that had fallen thru the cracks. So she assigns them to an away mission that she will be in command of. A genius, a professional sick person and and an ensign who has lack of confidence. Janeway surprises me on her command expertise. Another great episode.
Season 6 in my opinion is the best of the series.
My Season 6 favorites include:
Episode 3 – Barge of the Dead – The eighth of my Voyager Top Ten. An exceptionally creative presentation of the Klingon afterlife and Klingon lore. This story pairs with Season 1’s Faces episode as an inquiry into self-acceptance as told through B’Elanna Torres. This story very tenderly touches on what it’s like being the child of divorced parents.
Episode 8 – One Small Step – An homage to early space exploration. A good episode for space geeks, not only for a good story, but also for sneaking some real space science terms into the dialog. The episode concludes with a stirring speech from Captain Janeway about how “space” literally means nothing, but opens the door to everything.
Episode 12 – Blink of an Eye – This episode proves that it’s possible to tell an interesting and credible story with a time anomaly without resorting to gimmickry. A great study of a civilization’s growth from Stone Age to Post-Modern Age with a little general relativity tossed in. Star Trek’s trademark optimism about the future is highlighted.
Episode 22 – Muse – The ninth of my Voyager Top Ten. Can art influence politics? Can messages conveyed through drama and poetry make a difference in people’s lives? Well, you’re a Star Trek fan – Star Trek inspires cooperation and acceptance of differences – Star Trek is a series of dramatic episodes with a message -- see where this is going? Bonus points for the use of ancient Greek theater as a model.
The Worst of Season 6:
Episode 9 – The Voyager Conspiracy - Wherein Seven of Nine joins the Alex Jones fringe. I appreciate the point that most conspiracy theories can be connected to a handful of supporting facts. However, the devolution of the story into a Keystone Cops chase scene diminishes what otherwise would have been a decent message.
Episodes 11 and 17 – Fair Haven & Spirit Folk - These episodes lose touch with science fiction and suffer for it. It is ironic that a holodeck program created to relieve crew boredom is itself, remarkably boring to the viewer. Spirit Folk also suffers badly in comparison to the similar Next Generation episode that creates a self-aware Moriarty from Data’s Sherlock Holmes holodeck program.
Episode 20 - Good Shepherd - Oh please! Rudolph, Herbie and the Island of Misfit Toys do not translate to Voyager story ideas. Barf!
Episode 23 – Fury - Another inexplicable application of time concepts. If the temporal mechanics in this plot were accurate, the plot itself would never exist because it would have been “fixed” in some earlier timeline. [SPOILER ALERT] I am also really tired of crew being killed and brought back to life through time paradoxes.
