Awesome science fiction and hugely enjoyable. 7 of 9's journey from Borg to human is interesting as an example of cult kidnap-deprogramming that happens in real life. The indoc comes off in layers. The coercive recruitment is investigated and revealed. Ability to reason independently of the scripts and dogmas is rehabilitated. Adjustment to reality and grieving for what is lost happens. The Star Trek script writers could make good intervention counsellors in dealing with real life cults. This review is by a real life cult monitor who deconstructs coercive tactics. In truth, in the 7 of 9 story science fiction has become reality.

Incredible stuff. Currently binge-watching Voyager and Season 4 is awesome! Season 3 was a big step up but Season 4 takes it to a whole new level. 'Year of Hell' is a brilliant realisation of events foreshadowed in Season 3's 'Before and After'. Seven of Nine is a great addition to the crew, with her conflicts and exploration of humanity elevating her well beyond the 'model in catsuit T&A show' she appears on the surface. Along with Janeway and Torres, a third strong female character allows Voyager to move light-years ahead of the original 60s show in terms of male and female stereotypes.

In short, Season 4 of Voyager is Star Trek at its finest with strong storylines and great character development whilst staying true to the original premise of the franchise. Sci-fi really doesn't get any better than this.

As Season Three of Star Trek: Voyager neared its conclusion the show really hit its stride. And Season Four just got better. Starting with the second part of Scorpion (which introduced Jerry Ryan as Seven of Nine) almost every story is a cracker. The lost of Kes was unfortunate (losing the irritating Neelix would have been a better option!), but gaining Seven of Nine, later to be know Seven, was a masterstroke. Although maybe too many of the later stories revolved around her - but then she is a great character. There are a couple of great two-parters: The Year of Hell and The Killing Game (which features the Hirogen, who featured in an earlier story in the season).
The actors all know their characters inside and out and have become comfortable with the set up. Kate Mulgrew makes a formidable (and, at times, quite sexy) captain who sparks off of Seven quite fequently. Quite possibly the most completely satisfying Season in Voyagers seven years, with strong stories, great effects and good writing and acting. There are some quite good extras, not over burdend with them, but then there are seven seasons to fill - and there are several 'easter eggs' dotted about (on all seasons).

I have been a big fan of Voyager since 2009- a most dreadful year for me. The Voyager crew provided me with brilliant escapism sci-fi fun ever since then. I also like the fact that Janeway is the first female captain in Star Trek. Also, the crew is a very different mix than what we are used to in Star Trek- we have an ex-con [Tom Paris], former members of a rebel group [the Maquee], a former Borg- 7 of 9, a hologram,etc. They are not your typical ST crew and that is what makes it special.
Series 4 is excellent. Not only are we introduced to the Borg crew member, 7 of 9, we have loads of good episodes that deal with an array of interesting ideas and issues. Some of my favourites are 'Random Thoughts' where engineer Belana Torres is arrested for thinking a violent thought on a planet of telepaths who are very keen about keeping violence out of their society. Another great episode is 'Mortal Coil' where Neelix [moral officer] is revived from the dead and questions his beliefs of an after life that did not come to fruition. Also episodes like 'Scorpion' and 'the Gift' which deal with the incorporation of 7 of 9. 'Living Witness' is an episode which examines how the Voyager crew may be remembered 700 years into the future on a troubled planet.
It would probably help ones understanding of the series to check out either series' 1 or 2 first;however, Even if one starts with this, the 4th series, you would be able to enjoy it still.

As I purchased separately, all seven series of Star Trek Voyager; my review will end up the same for each. I'm in temporary accommodation and in need of evening entertainment (no tv) and these fit the bill. It's lovely to take it from the beginning and see it through to the end. Some of the episodes, particularly those related to the holo deck are a bit weird; but I do understand that to keep sane for several years in a space ship "lost in space" would take other amusements. Janeway's character is pushed too far, at the expense of others, Chakotay in particular, who I would like to have seen developed - but I'm enjoying them nonetheless!

Great show (although not my fav') would be better if the DVD had the option to 'play all' instead of one episode at a time. This is a little frustrating especially when you consider the VHS versions play all the eps on the tape.

Before I get the next ones though I think I will go for bluray format

this film is great with the Borg in and has a lot of action and explosions in it and has seven of nine as the leader of the Borg.
