Trekathon 463: Rise (VOY)

August 11th, 2012

Tuvok and Neelix are stuck on an away mission together.

This is mainly another attempt at the Tuvok/Neelix relationship story that so miserably fell flat on its face in previous episodes, mainly because Neelix came across as an intolerant jerk. Here Tuvok is made to look like the intolerant jerk, which strangely enough makes a lot more sense.

But it doesn’t really rise above ‘OK’ at any point. I never got terribly engaged in the plot, and the special effects looked fairly dodgy at times – Trek has a problem with the effects in atmosphere, rather than in space.

463 down, 274 to go.
