Trekathon 409: Death Wish (VOY)

June 18th, 2012

Q visits with the crew of Voyager.

This was a pretty good story. It’s a case of not even trying to hide the real world issue (assisted suicide), but it’s handled for the most part with taste and care. Jon de Lancie is great as usual with Q, and it was nice to see a brief (if pretty pointless) cameo from Riker.

But there was absolutely nothing that made this about Voyager. You could have substituted TNG or DS9 in without a problem. And in the end that fatally undermines any kind of impact for the episode.

409 down, 328 to go.
