Trekathon 464: Favorite Son (VOY)

August 12th, 2012

Harry turns out to be a member of a skanky cuckoo species.

This season voyager has been swinging between ‘average’ and ‘stinker’. This is another stinker. The idea of one of the crew being transformed into another species has a lot of potential – we could have seen a lot of interesting stories told. But what we get is a misogynistic ‘women are horrible and will kill you for sex’.

There really isn’t any redeeming feature to this. It’s all competently done, but the alien species is played in such a one note, idiotic fashion it’s hard to like anything in this.

464 down, 273 to go.
