Fantastic creepy episode with loads of atmosphere. This was a great start to season 5!

The Doctor's mobile emitter is damaged while beaming back from an away mission, merging with Seven of Nine's Borg nanoprobes and the DNA of a male Ensign to create a 29th century Borg.

Features: The Borg
Stardate: Unknown
Air Date: 10/21/98
Director: Les Landau

Jack's Review
Excellent episode. The new drone is well played and actually quite well used in the episode. I do enjoy what the writers are doing with the Borg in the Voyager series. They are vulnerable - something quite contrary to the first Borg episodes in the Next Generation series.

B'Elanna purposely puts herself into increasingly more dangerous situations. Meanwhile the crew decides to build a new shuttlecraft, the Delta Flyer.

Features: The Holodeck
Stardate: Unknown
Air Date: 10/28/98
Director: Cliff Bole

Jack's Review
Very cool episode - well acted by Roxann Dawson and Robert Beltran. Paris and Tuvok's banter about the aesthetics of the Delta Flyer design are priceless. My only complaint is the lack of the typical techno-babble explanation when B'Elanna does her engineering magic at the end of the episode. 2021 edit: I have decided that, for me, Torres is the most annoying character in Trek. She is moody like a teenager and while she had started to come out of it by season 4, she regresses in this season again. Let's see if she can change my mind.

I love that species 8472 keeps appearing in the most unlikely of places. This episode is very good in that we get to see Voyager conversing with them instead of the typical telepathic stuff from previous encounters. The addition of Ray Walston in this story as the enigmatic Boothby is a real treat to watch.

This episode really turned out to be a surprise. The synopsis sounded rather dull yet it had plenty of tension and action. Yet another outstanding display of acting by the entire cast.

Fifteen years in the future, Chakotay and Harry Kim attempt to prevent the Voyager from crash-landing on an ice planet.

Jack's Review
Hands down and without question one of the greatest Star Trek episodes of all time. By the end, all three of us were fighting off tears - just thinking about it now gets me choked up. I absolutely love the way Garrett Wang plays Ensign Kim. This episode is emotional, intense, heartbreaking, and heartwarming at the same time. Oh, and seeing Geordi La Forge as Captain of the Galaxy Class USS Challenger caused me to have another geekout.

Two episodes in a row that really show off the acting prowess of this cast. When Jeri Ryan cracks a smile and uses a girly voice in one scene, my Son and I just looked at each other with our mouths agape. You get so used to seeing her as a robot-like character that any display of emotion is almost unsettling in the same way it is seeing Tuvok or Spock laugh. Absolutely well done!

A wounded alien is brought on board from a stranded vessel and attaches itself to B'Elanna Torres.

An excellent episode about morals and values - yet another Star Trek staple. The alien screeching in this one made me jump twice, my Son and Fiancee jump once, and our cat, Chuckie, have a heart attack, I think!

Jack's Review
Yet another example of fine acting by this stellar cast. Robert Duncan McNeill really and truly shines in this one. We get a glimpse of more depth to Tom Paris, and a hint at just how much he has matured serving with Janeway. How long until he regains Lieutenant status, I wonder?

While passing through Devore space, Voyager is routinely searched for telepaths.

Jack's Review
I always hate it when someone comes onto a Starfleet ship and starts pushing the Captain around....but I love it when the Captain puts them in their place. Kate Mulgrew solidifies Janeway as one of the greatest captains ever in this episode. She knows she can't fight...knows she is being played....Oh, my is her counterpoint awesome. Not so brazen as Kirk's reply to Khan or as in-your-face as Picard's chicken match with Shinzon....but no less epic.

I have already said that I feel Robert Picardo to be one of the finest actors on this show....but I will expand that to anywhere. He is a very commanding screen presence and the human quality he exhibits in The Doctor is astounding. Terrific episode.

Love in Star Trek is typically not my favorite subject matter....however, when it's Harry Kim taking the lead, good things happen. Garrett Wang was one of the most underused actors in the series so each episode where Harry is the lead character really stands out.

Okay - while I admit that Picardo is an incredible actor and he once again sells it here, this episode sputters in places. The overall idea is excellent but the AI changes its mind a bit too quick.

A simply awesome ending to the season. The conflicting command styles of Janeway and Ransom really show well in this one. While Janeway is focused on getting home she is much less manic and devious about it. Great guest cast with a terrific premise and nice cliffhanger....
