Wait for the later series if not a die hard fan
on 22 May 2004
Overall Ive always considered the first series of star trek voyager the most bland. It tried to be the next gen over again but with a new crew- finding anomalies etc etc, and to be honest it didnt reallt cover that much new ground, if any. However on watching this series on dvd again there are moments where voyager's premise shines; caretaker and eye of the needle i think being two of the best. However compared to the rest of the voyager series, one is definitely the one i had least interest in buying. The dvd extras however make up for the possible lack of excitement in some of the episodes. The interview with kate mulgrew is a great extra, with the fantastic actress giving some insights into her role of captain janeway. Equally as interesting is the guenevive bujold footage: seeing her own take on the janeway character makes you grateful all the more for mulgrew in the role. the rest of the extras are admittedly a little poorer but still hold up to scrutiny. Still worth buying, but if you are a fan of the later series of voyager, where the emphasis was more on action and to be honest, the borg, and youre short on cash and are unsure of which to buy, i would wait for these later series such as 4 ,5 ,6 and 7 to be released as these do contain much better episodes.
