Cinemablend shares their 8 “WTF Moments” from Star Trek: Voyager, but do we agree?
Apparently Cinemablend, like myself, is currently on a Star Trek: Voyager kick. The show is one of the most impressive acts of television that the franchise has ever created, even if season two is a bit, shall we say, meh. And while the show isn’t as beloved by everyone as say Deep Space Nine or The Next Generation, it does have its fans. A fanbase that is ever-increasing as more people find the majestic Kathryn Janeway.
And while Voyager is my favorite of all the Star Trek shows, even I have to admit that the franchise has had some seriously off moments. Cinemablend ranked their eight “WTF” moments (which we encourage you to read) from the show, and it’s hard to argue with them as a whole, but do we agree with the top moment? Let’s find out.
But first, what were the moments they picked?
- Kathryn Janeway and Tom Paris become slug monsters and have kids together
- The AI Clown who tortured people in an AI simulation for years
- The Nazi Hirogen
- Kathryn Janeway nearly gets her soul stolen
- The Doctor turns into Dr. Mengele in “Darkling”
- Kes being ripped through time
- Icheb is nothing more to his parents than a chemical weapon
- The entire Year of Hell two-parter
Are these the eight most messed up moments in Star Trek: Voyager
Off the top of my head, I think these are a good eight. Would they be my eight? I don’t know, messed up moments like those are subjective. Like, there’s the fact that Harry Kim died on Voyager, and was later replaced by a copy of himself. A copy who knows full well he doesn’t belong on the ship he later arrives on. That’s pretty messed up.
Then there’s Seska trying to baby trap Chakotay, only to find out that not only is she, not Seksa the Bajoran, but Seska the Cardassian, who was cheating on Chakotay with a Kazon, and who was actually the baby’s father.
So while I don’t argue that these are eight solid moments, you could easily do another eight. Like when Voyager found another Federation ship in the Delta Quadrant, only to find out they were committing mass genocide to fuel their ship.
So a solid list, but there’s far more out there to explore before we make our final judgment.
