Techno babble, stories, and SEVEN OF NINE

The techno babble is the biggest thing I DIDN"T like about Voyager.

I liked the technobabble, I never had an issue understanding it or anything like that. I think TNG had more "out there" technobabble than Voyager did

I disagree but there is probably no way to properly gauge the 2.

They seemed about the same to me.  If we're talking about fake scientific terminology thrown around, meant to imitate professional jargon, I got the impression both shows used the same terms and about the same amount of them thrown into the dialogue.  If we're talking about plots that revolved around fake science--and thus gave the characters reason to talk about it in fake scientific terms--I think both shows had their share of "anomaly" stories and stories in which problems were solved through some near-miraculous application of technology, though perhaps Voyager leaned a little more heavily on the latter kind of story.


Falor was a prosperous merchant who went on a journey to gain greater awareness: Through storms he crossed the Voroth Sea/ To reach the clouded shores of Raal/ Where old T’Para offered truth./ He traveled through the windswept hills/ And crossed the barren Fire Plains/ To find the silent monks of Kir./ Still unfulfilled, he journeyed home/ Told stories of the lessons learned/ And gained true wisdom by the giving. – Falor’s Journey, “Innocence”

. . . and I don't particularly care for the excess of fake jargon that got thrown around, but I did like the "anomaly" focused stories.

I liked voyager for...


The characters...some of them were funny at times. The Doctor was always enjoyable to watch. I loved the episode where he pretended to be the captain of Voyager. And I thought he was awesome in Message in a Bottle.


The theme was interesting. Not only were they lost in the Delta Q but they met new as well as old alien species. It was different than the other shows and the stories were more imagintive and creative.

Star Trek Voyager was the show that drew me into Star Trek, and turned me into an avid trek fan.  The idea of the unexpected happening, two different crews coming together with one mission was an incredibly moving story.  The characters were perfect, and portrayed with equal perfection.  I began to feel like I was part of the crew...and everytime an opportunity came for them to get home...I held my breath just like Harry Kim.


After completing the full voyager series, I eventually moved on to the others.  After watching the entire DS9 series I began to wonder though....


Surely it would have been much faster to go to the Gamma Quadrant and take the bajoran worm hole back...


I've looked at every Star Trek galaxy map I can find...and it looks like it would have been about half the distance from the path they took...but I guess if they did that it would have been hard to do 7 full seasons...then again, they still had 30-40,000 light years to go before Janeway took the shuttle back in time to bring them home...

I was sad when TNG ended, and I wasn't quite into DS-9 yet, although I was watching it. It grew on me. But,Voyager started out fast. It was more like a Star Trek series, even though it was kinda in reverse, because they were on the way home. But, it was very creative and exciting that they were flung 70,000 light years away from home, and on their own. They had to be courageous, bold, and determined. And Captain Janeway was the essence of determined. Kate Mulgrew played her to a T. I loved all the characters in Voyager, especially Janeway, B'Elanna, and Seven. But, it's hard to pick a favorite, other than Janeway. Even though they weren't on a mission to explore, explore they did. They made the most of being in the Delta Quadrant, and of meeting and learning new aliens. It was a great show. There are only maybe 3 or 4 out of the whole series that I wasn't wild about, but over-all I loved it. I miss it a lot!

What made me watch Voyager, it some what reminded me of TOS for exploration, they were alwayse on the moved so they alwayse met new alians, a new quadrant was being charted, and the strugle to return home.
