Trekathon 367: Cathexis (VOY)

May 7th, 2012

Chakotay’s brain gets drained.

How would you make a really bad episode?

  • Stupid Holodeck opening sequence with no point other than using up a few minutes.

  • Ridiculous technobabble explanation for the main inciting incident.

  • Painfully long ‘oh, he’s native american’ sequence with a medicine wheel.

  • Kes having strange psychic visions that seem to bring on blurry camerawork.

That’s the first 12 minutes. The silly ghost story and ‘Who’s the Alien’ rubbish of the remainder is Voyager’s first journey into truly awful.

367 down, 370 to go.
