Star Trek: Voyager

 (1,831)7.81995X-RayTV-PG
The wildly successful Star Trek franchise continues as Capt. Kathryn Janeway and the crew of the U.S.S. Voyager follow a Maquis ship into the Badlands, and one species-saving decision later, find themselves in the Delta Quadrant, 70,000 light years away from the Alpha Quadrant, the Federation, and home. The two ships must join together to make it back, facing treacherous battles from the outside world -- and from within.

Through the Voyager team, a story is built
Verified purchase
So, please be aware that this is a review from a certain point of view. That point of view is from a Sci-fi fan in his late 50s. I actually enjoyed the team work type plots and solutions that the Voyager crew develop and implement. The show is quite different from the predecessors: SOS, SNG and Enterprise. Different in that this teamwork extends beyond the craft into the cultures that the crew meets on their way home. The reality is that some cultures are not interested in working as a team but most, if persuaded adequately, work together. Even, occasionally, the Borg.

Now I have to say that in all honesty, I did not like the show as a young adult when it first arrived on TV. Action is used as a last resort and agreeing to disagree is a common theme.

But as an adult I see a lot of value in this type of approach to the Voyager's end goal which is to get home with minimal casualties and more than a few positive relations for the future Federation.

Pay your dues in Season 1 to enjoy the better seasons that follow.

I remember the difficulty I had watching this show immediately after the long running Next Generation essentially redefined the Star Trek brand. Where Next Generation was born of confidence (staffed by the best of the best) and interstellar cooperation (look ... a Klingon on the bridge), Voyager was born out of an espionage mission and the resulting betrayals and chaos. Captain Janeway was weak where Captain Picard was unwaverable. Security went from the primal and visceral Worf to the emotionless and intellectual Tuvok. It was a cast of rogues, traitors and neophytes. Back then I just couldn't stick with it. Now, I have returned to the series and appreciate it much more because there is no need to compare it to Next Generation or to expect it to somehow proceed from Next Generation. It turn out that it stands on its own pretty well. Season 1 is mostly an investment in backgound necessary to more fully enjoy the improving story ideas in later seasons. Highlights of Season 1 include Episode 14 - Faces where B'Elanna is literally and metaphorically split in half by the Vidiians to explore ideas about self-acceptance, tempering anger for a higher purpose (courage) and outwitting the need for violence as a solution. Also Episode 15 - Jetrel is recommended for the powerful lesson that there is no winner in a nuclear war or similar event of mass destruction.

Lowlights (least worthwhile episodes) include Episode 11 - State of Flux where the entire Voyager security force is outwitted by a single Cardassian it knows to be a traitor, and Episode 13 - Cathexis which is the first of many failed episodes centered on Chakotay and his poorly conceived ideas on Native American spiritualism. Even setting that aside, the premise of a man-eating nebula shows how bad science makes for bad science fiction.

I still cannot tell whether the story writers intended to employ a running joke about Voyager security being less effective than Barney Fyfe. Watch for yourself and decide. It's either exceptionally subtle Star Trek humor of overuse of a plot device. Watch and enjoy better seasons are ahead.

Another Solid Star Trek Series.
Verified purchase
I did tape many of these episodes when it was originally broadcast, but I must say that there were many shows I never saw. During my current Star trek genre viewing I decided to order the entire series on DVD. I was surprised to see that Voyager is now out of print. The prices are astronomical for individual seasons. But I was able to get it. It was the only series from the 1990's I did not have on DVD. As it stands, only Deep Space Nine is the series I've seen in full. Not even my favorite, Star Trek: The Next Generation have I seen. that will change this time around.

Kathryn Janeway is an incredible woman. tenacious, ruthless and also kind. nevertheless, she does things her way as we saw in caretaker. She very well could and SHOULD have used the array to get back to the Alpha Quadrant. Yet she took pity on the Ocampans and violated the Prime directive, which she always seemed to tout when she wanted to. "Equinox", "Omega", etc. Late on we'll see how she would not even give a favorable judgment for Q Continuum when in exchange they would have gotten the crew of Voyager back to Earth. Q could have created a mutiny had he told the crew of Voyager what he'd offered them in exchange for Janeway simply allowing someone to live. Hardly that big a deal. But her own code of honor forced her to do the opposite of what would have benefited her crew. Picard would not have done that. He'd have done whatever he could have done to keep the crew of the Enterprise safe. See the episode: "Q-Who" for proof of this.

I give this DVD set a Four Star Rating. I'm the 1821st person to review this DVD set.

it is like I am seeing it for the very first time
Verified purchase
I think time has a way of making us change our perspectives on art ... in this case, a television series. When "Star Trek Voyager" was running its course on television, I was not really impressed with it. Its story line didn't actually fit with my mental map of the Star Fleet Universe. I was still in the Original Series mode. That to me was "Star Trek". Now, after a few decades, it is like I am seeing it for the very first time. Not just Voyager, but TNG and DS9 as well. There is a lot more depth to the characters than what I originally gave credit for. So, after running a few of the Original Series, I find that I prefer STV, DS9, and TNG. They are a whole lot better than what I remember.

Five star series, Four star DVD menu
Verified purchase
Voyager is a 5 star series, but this review is about the DVD package purchased of the first season. All DVDs are complete and play without any glitches. The images are much clearer and the contrast much sharper than what you get watching Netflix. The animation/CGI sequences are outstanding. The sound is great. There are limited menu options which is to be expected since these are older DVDs.

The DVD "case" is cool to look at but not practical at all. The first DVD has little protection compared to the others. The top and bottom plastic halves of the case slide off up and down, exposing a book-like arrangement of DVDs, all uncovered on the top side. See my photos. The "book" pages protect all but the top DVD. With great care sliding the cover off and on, which tends to catch, I should be able to keep them well protected when accessing the discs.

My biggest gripe is with the menu. It reminds me of the TOS menu. It has cool graphics, sound, and animation with the ship flying into place, one for each episode, followed by your picking the correct ship to access the episode you want. There is no continuous play. Every time an episode ends you have to go back through this entire process to pick the next episode. It's cool once or twice but gets old quickly. If there was an option to see just the episode titles without all the animation that would be great. This format is maddening and frankly a bit juvenille.

I am praying that someday this series will get the recognition it deserves and be released in Blu-ray format. Until then I'll continue to collect all the seasons and put up with this crazy menu. What choice do I have? I love this series.

Just as good the second time around.
Verified purchase
We are enjoying this series again, after not being able to get all of it the first time it was on. I am somewhat of a feminist and was irritated that the could only focus on Kate Mulgrew's Hair styles and not the acting, writing, and the stretch of the characters that the voyager's met on their journey to try to get home. We are only on season two, but am looking forward to the rest of them. I love that Captain Janeway is human and not a stiff man or a woman chaser. We are full time RV'ers so we only get them when we have adequate Wifi.

Season One/The Start Of A Great Series
Verified purchase
The highlight for me was seeing the first episode-Caretaker. I did not see that episode while the series was on TV in syndication. So it was a treat seeing that episode for the first time. For me the best episodes for Season One was Caretaker because it introduces the series, the characters, and how two space vessels would wind up deep in the delta quadrant some 70,000 light years away from Earth. The second good episode was Parallax. Here we see how the Federation and Maquis crews are intergrated into one crew that will function really well together throughout the series.

Also what sets this series apart from the other Star Trek series is the selection of a female captain-Kathryn Janeway. Throughout the series I would come to love her as the captain and she was a good one. I would have no problem serving under her and this is coming from someone who served in the military,

There is a book that describes all the major characters. It gets into their life history to include events that leads to how they would wind up on Voyager. the book is titled Star Trek Voyager Pathways. If one wants to learn more about the major characters this book is worth checking out.

As for the packaging it's not bad. Each disc is in it's own compartment. The one drawback is that the episode titles are not printed on the disc or the packaging. The only way one can learn the episode titles is to put the disc in the player. it is something I can live with. Also there were no problems with the discs after playing them. Also Amazon did it'd usual good job in getting the item to be in a timely manner. Again I used the no cost SuperSaver shipping. Once again good job.

Unreasonable pricing
Verified purchase
If you're reading this, you probably already know what Voyager is all about, and whether or not you like it. Season 1, as with first seasons of most TV shows, finds the producers, writers and cast seeking their footing with the concept and the characters. Thus, it's one of the weaker seasons of the series. I'm OK with that -- they had to start somewhere. Four stars for the content.

I take issue with the price. This season aired 17 years ago. It's only 15 episodes (all subsequent seasons featured 26 episodes, I think) on five DVDs. Why is it currently priced at more than $51 (a figure that randomly jumps to more than $60)? That's more than $3.40 per episode at the current price.

In addition, the DVD packaging of the Voyager series is disgraceful and insulting to the legacy of the series. It's packaged as if the product was meant to be temporary and disposable, which makes the pricing even more frustrating and unfathomable.

One would think that the first season would be most likely of all the seasons to be "value" priced in order to hook consumers into starting -- and continuing -- a collection of the complete series. Sadly, not the case here. A frustrating side-effect of this greedy pricing model is that Voyager box sets are one of the most bootlegged DVD sets you can find. Just try to buy new or used, supposedly legit copies on auction sites and you'll see what I mean. You'll probably spend about $20-$35, but there's no telling what you'll get for your money. If the price was reasonable for the official product, maybe there would be less of a market for bootlegs.

Paramount should do right by the fans of Voyager and the Star Trek franchise, a franchise which fans have made one of the most lucrative in the history of entertainment media.
