Trekathon 379: Elogium (VOY)

May 19th, 2012

Kes goes through space-puberty.

Probably one of those ideas better left alone. Accelerated puberty, like any accelerated ageing, is hard to pull off well. A couple of the characters run around going ‘am I ready to be a parent’ – such an old story, with nothing new done here. And then a cop out at the end to reset everything.

And the B-plot, with the aliens who want to ‘mate’ with Voyager, is pretty silly as well. Just not much to like here.

Great/terrible line: “It appears we have lost our sex appeal, Captain.”

379 down, 358 to go.
