Voyager Season One Recap


The Trek franchise expands into its second post-Roddenberry series with Voyager. It was in some ways a departure from what has come before, with a female captain and a completely different setting than the previous series. In other ways, it might be seen as a return to form, with less serialization and stories much more focused on new civilizations and strange new worlds.

OK, now give us... "Le Tigre!"
