Did you make this thread to argue with me about Voyager instead of responding to my witty use of shitty 70s album covers? I'm truly touched Icyborg.

Anyway, Voyager is not poop. not poop!
People wouldn't hate Voyager so much if it was a man constantly breaking the prime directive. They would say he was doing what was necessary to save his crew (like basically what they say when every other captain breaks the PD) but when it's Janeway doing it, it's because she's a sycophantic bitch who just is too simple to understand it. And coffee. She's just a crazy bitch obsessed with coffee! Lock her up! We never found out what happened to those 30,000 starfleet communiques, did we?

I honestly think that Janeway was a man, she'd be accused of being a psychotic, homicidal crappy Kirk clone and that Voyager was botched attempt to create a 1990s rehash of TOS.

I mean I kinda doubt most people who thought her decision with Tuvix was wrong would think she would be in the right if she was a man. Sure you get the occasional guy who wants to rape her, but I think for the most part the issues with Janeway and Voyager as a whole is less about gender and more about the writers ignoring the original premise of a crew trying to desperately survive and go back home and regressing it to summer camp adventures in space.

There probably would be a lot more gay porn though.

Hey man I'm not going to sit here and try to defend Tuvix or salamander sex or anything like that. Voyager has some stinkers, but so do all Trek. Those episodes are just purely bad, and its best not to think about them...but there are also episodes like that in every series. People usually don't use the spectacularly bad takes the captains make in some episodes as a reason to say that captain was especially criminal, except with Janeway.

(Not that anyone in this thread said that -- yet, but it's one of the reasons people hate on VOY)

For the record, Kirk breaks the PD a lot more often than Janeway. And he's the best captain, so what does that tell you? nb4dp

Voyager is sucks but it has nothing to do with Janeway being a woman as >>65897 says. Breaking the Prime Directive is fine under a justifiable circumstance. Whatever. Who cares.

Voyager is terrible for a whole mess of reasons.

Voyager IS terrible for a whole mess of reasons though. One of the things that is literally consistent throughout the entire show is that most of the characters themselves aren't even likable. I also feel like it's pretty dull aesthetically. I mean all of the different series have their own distinct look and feel, but Voyager's just feels dull and shitty and doesn't stand out to me in a good way most of the time.

Neelix had great potential to be a real nigga. That motherfucker could scrounge up anything and make it into a meal. That's pretty awesome except he's also a fucking doofus. He should have been more like chef Gordon Ramsay. Tuvok is one of the few redeeming characters, maybe just because he's one of the few Vulcans I think are played by actors that actually do it well.

But VOY sure is a stinker. Does anyone have that old ms paint image where all the other captains are saying VOY is the worst and Janeway is crying? I sure could use that right now.

Voyager had plenty of good episodes such as: Deathwish, Living Witness, Tuvix, Riddles, Future's End, Scorpion, The Killing Game, Year of Hell, Equinox, Think Tank, Dark Frontier, Blink of An Eye, Flesh and Blood, Repentance, Q2, and Author, Author.

All trek has good & bad episodes with the possible exception of Discovery.

Yes exactly. A bad show can have a few good episodes and a good show can have a few bad episodes. It's still Trek so of course it has a few episodes worth watching, but as a series over all, it's POOP! :'(

I genuinely didn't think Discovery would be worse than Voyager, I'm surprised that it is.

i didn't even realize the Tuvix thing was a controversy. i know tonally it's really bad to have your fucking captain drag a man against his will to die but that's just an example of the show's terrible writing. ethically i always thought you're ending one person's life to save/resurrect two persons. two people with just as much right to live as Tuvix, and with their right to exist being deliberately impeded by Tuvix. plus he was really unsettling to have around.

what do you guys think Space UN Secretary General Picard would have done? he would have deliberated unto infinity until Q or someone just destroyed Tuvix anyway, solving his problem for him while allowing him to still feel moral. like there's no way you can write that plot with Picard. And with Kirk, his loyalty and love for his friends would have caused it to not even be an episode-length plot. If Spock and Bones merged in a transporter accident Kirk would kill that motherfucker to get his men back with absolutely no deliberation.

I think Tuvix comes up a lot because it's a single event. A lot of "lolvoyager" requires paying attention at least a little bit to notice how schizo Janeway gets from ep to ep

This. Tuvix is a touchstone that encapsulates fans' problems with Janeway. A lot of the shows are so forgettable that it's hard to recall examples of Janeway's multiple personality disorder contained therein.

Absolutely everything wrong with Voyager was 100% on the writers. The entire cast did a great job.

Ethan Phillips did a great job portraying the worst possible character ever, and we have to commend him for that. That fucking asshole.

Enterprise though, had a good amount of bad motherfuckin' acting.

See, the film franchise isn't really the actual franchise. I guess I should have said 'live-action series' but I think most people mentally naturally group the TOS-crew movies with TOS, TNG with TNG, and jj with a pile of shit, so they don't even enter into the question (like, why it would be meaningless to include Discovery as an option.)

Anyway, I concede that most people seem to rank VOY below ENT, although there is a small band who flip the ordering. Mostly, I am amazed that there are 18 people who use this board regularly.

I could give a Tribble's ass how anybody ranks the old shows at this point. I've seen 'em listed every which way. I just want to say how much it pleases me to see Trek fans nerdily discussing Star Trek and not getting distracted by CBS dangling shiny objects at them in the form of Klingons that look how they're supposed to and Enterprises that don't.

Has season 2 started? I haven't even seen the season finale of season 1.
I was soooo hyped to have a new Trek show and now that it exists it's just one of those shows I "never get around to."

I have way more fun overanalyzing and nerding out on this board than I do watching STD.

I like VOY better than almost any trek other than TNG and TAS (Which I like for a similar reason.)
It more touchy-feely and weird and still genuine trek. There is more open to interpretation since one episode doesn't take forever.

I also like early DS9 seasons more than later ones, I'm weird that way.

Me too. Here's the thing about the later seasons; the build up is fantastic, but you know that the ending is a real let down (at least for me, season 7 kills it) so really it amounts to a big fat cock-tease.

The lack of a canon connection really does it in. I'd have been willing to accept a new Trek that paid proper respect to what had come before, good or bad (looking at you Voyager), but doing a reboot and calling it prime was basically CBS telling me they no longer wanted me to pay attention to new Trek. Mission accomplished.
