Highlights of Season 3 include:
- False Profits, in which Voyager discovers Ferengi con-men living as Gods among a primitive people
- The feature-length Future's End, in which Voyager is transported back to Earth in 1996 to prevent a technology mogul destroying the future with stolen technology
- The Q and the Grey, in which mischievous super-being Q asks Voyager's female captain to father his child
- The season-finale Scorpion, whereby Janeway discovers a new species even more deadly than the Borg and the Voyager crew are joined by "Seven of Nine"
After proving its long-term potential in the second series, Star Trek: Voyager served up some of the best episodes in its entire seven-year history. The second-season cliffhanger was intelligently resolved in "Basics, Pt II", and the fan-favourite "Flashback" placed Tuvok (Tim Russ) aboard the USS Excelsior from Star Trek VI, under the command of Captain Sulu (Star Trek alumnus George Takei). It was a brilliant example of inter-series plotting, just as "False Profits" was a Ferengi-based sequel to the NextGen episode "The Price". The two-part time-travel scenario of "Future's End" is a Voyager highlight, with clear echoes (including dialogue lifted verbatim!) of Star Trek's classic "The City on the Edge of Forever", featuring delightful guest performances by actress-comedienne Sarah Silverman and Ed Begley Jr. Character-wise, the series belonged to Kes (Jennifer Lien, whose tenure on the series was now near its end), Neelix (Ethan Phillips), and the Doctor (Robert Picardo), who shined (respectively) in "Warlord", "Fair Trade", and the surprisingly touching "Real Life" (the latter directed by "Potsie" himself, Happy Days veteran Anson Williams). By infecting B'Elanna (Roxanne Dawson) with a fellow officer's "Blood Fever", Voyager delved into the turbulent Vulcan ritual of Pon Farr, while the cliffhanger "Scorpion" introduced the relentless, Borg-destroying villains of Species 8472, which would pose a continuing threat in subsequent episodes.
Series 3 had a few clunkers (the guilty pleasure "Macrocosm" puts Janeway in stripped-down "Ripley" mode against invading macro-viruses, and Ensign Kim is an awkward "Favourite Son" to a bevy of babes), but for every misstep there's a strong science-fiction concept, like the highly-evolved Hadrosaurs in "Distant Origin", which doubles as a compelling indictment of institutionalised repression. Overall, this is rock-solid Trek, and the DVD features are equally engaging, albeit growing more perfunctory (especially the series 3 summary) with each full-series release. Don't forget the Easter Eggs hidden on the special-features menus, however; they contain some of the set's happiest surprises. --Jeff Shannon
