Normally, party hats would signal the death of an episode. Here, oddly, they do not.

Voyager Season 3 Recap

Voyager Season 3 Recap

Voyager has shown a steady improvement since Season 2, but it hasn't found its "break out" moment, yet. Season 3 opens with a run of 12 episodes that tick in at a 6 or above on our scale. The back half of the season suffers a bit of a back slide, though, with a rough stretch in episodes 13 through 20. Then it finishes rather strongly with 4 out of 6 above average shows. So what are the trends? What's changed, if anything?

 Which of these characters is standing on the "Eject Warp Core" hatch?
