After seven long years trying to return home, it's no surprise that the seventh season of Voyager was emotional. It begins with the resolution to season 6's "Unimatrix Zero", in which Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), Torres (Roxann Biggs-Dawson), and Tuvok (Tim Russ) must find a way off the Borg Cube and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) faces the loss of the precious bit of humanity she has just discovered. "Human Error" focuses on Seven's further attempts to explore her human side (a romance comes from out of the blue). And if Seven isn't the cast's most fascinating character, it's the other crew member struggling to find his not-quite-human identity, the Doctor (Robert Picardo). In "Body and Soul," the Doctor gets to experience physical life in the body of--who else?--Seven. He writes a novel in "Author, Author," and in the first of a pair of excellent two-parters, "Flesh and Blood," he explores what it means to be a hologram in the midst of a deadly situation involving the Hirogen. In the second two-parter, "Workforce," the crew is kidnapped and brainwashed into becoming ordinary laborers on a planet with a worker shortage, but Janeway is forced to question whether she wouldn't prefer this version of a normal, stable life.
The seventh season also saw the first Trek wedding since Dax-Worff, the return of the old Federation-Maquis conflict, the continuing efforts of Lt. Reginald Barclay (Dwight Schultz) to bring Voyager home, Kim (Garrett Wang) taking command twice (once with the help of the Emergency Command Hologram), the return of Q, and Neelix's discovery of a group of fellow Talaxians. The final episode, "Endgame," is less concerned with misty-eyed goodbyes than with a bending of conventional views of the space-time continuum that leads to an exciting showdown with the Borg queen (Alice Krige, repeating her role from Star Trek: First Contact but making her first appearance on Voyager). DVD bonus features include the usual season recap, a 12-minute featurette on the final episode, and a crew profile of the Doctor. --David HoriuchiSee all Product Description

The season kicks off with a strong conclusion to the season 6 cliff-hanger UNIMATRIX ZERO. There is something very affecting about the principal of several Borg drones being able to fulfil their individuality during regeneration. The season 7 premiere delivers a respectable conclusion to this premise.
Moving on from the opener, there are several bland entries (including the 7 of 9 showcase IMPERFECTION, DRIVE [which sees the marriage of 2 crew members] & the Tuvok centred REPRESSION).
However some of the seasons success stories include: LINEAGE (which focuses on Torres parental worries), the WORKFORCE 2-parter (in which the crew are unknowingly forced to work on alien planet), AUTHOR AUTHOR and the audacious penultimate episode RENAISSANCE MAN; a really effective blend of action & tongue-in-cheek sentiment, which perfectly showcases the ability of the cast ensemble (with, of course, the doctor at the forefront).
ENDGAME is the shows highly effective series finalé, and is packed with menace, suspense and plenty of character moments, presented in one highly polished presentation.
While it may have been heavily critised by some people for its lack of continuity and engaging drama, VOYAGER may well have been a mere victim of poor timing (airing too close to DS9, and to TNG's demise). Faced with ENTERPRISE - surely many fans will feel nostalgia, for a show that was largely unappreciated.
This is the seventh and final season of Star Trek Voyager, and the boxed set contains all twenty six episodes, as well as a selection of special features.
Naturally after watching seven seasons of anything, you come to feel that you know the characters, and come to care about what happens to them in the end. As a result you can expect an emotional response especially towards the end of the season, as you know things are coming to a close.
The obvious highlight of this season was the two part final "End Game" which is action packed and gripping, but more importantly it ended things nicely, while also tying up all the loose ends.
Generally all episodes in this season were very entertaining and enjoyable to watch. The most note worthy few being "Renaissance Man" with Robert Picardo in fine form as both the Doctor and the ECH. "Q2" one of my personal favourites, and "Shattered" which showed time periods in both Voyager's past and possible future. There was only one episode I didn't enjoy and that was "Nightingale" simply because I felt it wasn't faithful to one of the character background and established traits (Kim's). Also there were a few small but obviously plot holes, and a rather pointless puppy love sub-plot between Torres and Icheb.
But all things considered, with plenty of brilliant moments and some excellent episodes make this final season one of the best.Read more ›
I very much enjoyed 'Critical Care', which focuses on The Doctor, by far the most interesting and funny character, and the episode also poses a few moral dilemmas (like 'Repentance, another great episode!), so its not just a simple kind of story. I also really liked 'Shattered', as Voyager is split into many time periods and we get to see back in the past and a little bit of the future.
The episode 'Natural Law' was really a nice episode, and finally the last ever episode 'Endgame' was both fun and enjoyable! I loved the end sequence.
The captain becomes a bit less harsh this season, and there is a rather disturbing sequence with her in a bathtub with John De Lancie ('Q').
The extra features are all good, and some are hidden too so make sure you find them all, but the disc menus, the background beeping and noise is a bit tiring after like 30 seconds, so be quick when you choose an episode!
It really is an extremely good buy, and so I'm going to buy the rest in reverse chronological order.
'Reverse the polarity of the shield' or 'Emit a tachyon pulse'. Solves anything.
The main reason why I think both ST:TNG and ST:Voyager were the strongest of the modern Star Trek incarnations is because of their character development. When you are able to watch the entire series, you are able to see the characters change, grow, develop; you find yourself identifying with them. You become fond of them; they become like family. And that's why they work. In ST:Voyager, there was a strong theme of redemption which I liked: the idea that everyone deserves a second chance. For example, Tom Paris goes from being a criminal rogue to being the pilot of Voyager with all the responsibilities that goes with it, all because Janeway knew he could do better and become that son he always wanted to be for his father, Admiral Paris; a man in whose shadow he had always lived under. Then later on, we see a Borg drone (Seven of Nine, Jeri Ryan) be tamed, moulded and guided into becoming a loved and valued member of the crew; and ultimately we see her, with the help of the crew and in particular Captain Janeway, regain her lost humanity.
In ST:TNG, Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard) brought so much depth to the character of Jean-Luc, so much history, that he became my favourite character. He was not only the captain, he was a father-like figure to so many in the crew, in particular to young Wesley Crusher. In ST:Voyager, my favourite character is Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew). In many ways she was the female Jean-Luc Picard: she was not only the captain of Voyager, she became a close friend and mother-like figure to all her crew.Read more ›
