Trekathon 504: Waking Moments (VOY)

September 21st, 2012

Voyager has a bad case of the nightmares.

Or, alternatively, the Voyager travelling players present Inception (12 years before the film, of course). The dream-within-a-dream stuff seems pretty predictable now, but for the time it’s very well done.

I was a bit worried that this was going to be another ‘horror’ episode, something that has never worked well in Star Trek. But instead again we get the imaginative SF approach to an alien race who lives in dreams. Good, but under explored.

(Tuvok’s nightmare at the top didn’t seem right. Why would a Vulcan have a classic anxiety dream?)

504 down, 233 to go.
