Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Voyager Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

This true sense of the unknown, combined with more crew-member friction than usual and a whole new galaxy of Star Trek aliens to introduce, gives Star Trek: Voyager built-in drama to spare.

Oct 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Upon rewatch, Voyager is still a surprisingly solid show.

May 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Caretaker is one of Star Trek's best pilots.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Personally, I think it represents what Star Trek: Voyager as a series was trying to accomplish, years before Hollywood got called out for failing at it so awfully: bringing a truly diverse crew to the screen, and to the Star Trek canon.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The lost-in-space premise gave Star Trek: Voyager a compelling narrative arc.

Oct 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Executive producer Brannon Braga once said that Voyager should be The X-Files of space, and [Phage] shows it meeting that potential.

Oct 24, 2017 | Full Review…

It's an ingenious concept, bringing the series back to its early days of anything-can-happen suspense.

Oct 23, 2017 | Full Review…

Quality varied wildly in this first 16-episode season, but a likeable ensemble of characters and healthy doses of moral conflict developed interest.

Oct 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Kate Mulgrew as Kathryn Janeway commands full allegiance in the two-hour opener with all the qualities viewers expect of Starfleet captains; courage, competence, wisdom, dignity, fairness, compassion and a sense of humor.

The series premiere for Voyager promised a Star Trek like none before it, with it boasting a female lead, a mixed crew of Starfleet and Maquis, and a ship alone in the Delta Quadrant.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Voyager: Season 1

  • May 05, 2018
    Bereft of ideas, Star Trek rips off Battlestar Galactica for its 4th series, Star Trek: Voyager. Thrown halfway across the galaxy and suffering from massive casualties, the U.S.S. Voyager embarks on a long journey to Earth after reforming its crew from a captured terrorist vessel and a pair of friendly aliens who offer to be their guides. Unfortunately the casting is rather poor, as none of the actors quite have the screen presence of previous Star Trek casts (except for Robert Picardo). And the series is unable to setup any interesting new alien races that compare to the traditional ones from the other series: i.e. Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, etc. However, the show is still Star Trek and manages to deliver a few good episodes full of adventure and mystery. Season 1 of Star Trek: Voyager is pretty rough, but it has its moments and shows promise.

    Honestly, I don't give a rats ass what anyone has to say about it... Janeway is tied with Picard for best captain... PERIOD!

    Again if you ask will I like this Star Trek series I’ll ask what you like in a Star Trek series. This series while still having excellent character development also has that frontier exploration that many expect from a Star Trek show. There are some heartbreaking moments that left me in tears. I can’t hear the song You Are My Sunshine without thinking about The Doctor and Seven. Simply an amazing series. Also the best season 1 of any of the Star Trek series.

    First seasons of Trek are usually pretty bad, and Voyager is no exception. While Voyager has a lot of great two-parters over the 7 seasons and some standout one-off episodes, this opening season is indicative of the safe, boring, and bland nature of most of Voyager's underwhelming run.

    3rd fav trek tv show it had so much potential
  • Jul 10, 2017
    Although Star Trek: Voyager had a wonderful premise and characters with great potential, I felt a lot of it was wasted with little tension between the leads, formulaic writing and lack of continuity. However, season 1 features some great episodes with wonderful plots / supporting characters. My Favourite Episodes: Caretaker Part 1 Time and Again Phage Eye of the Needle Ex Post Facto Jetrel

    I loved this series. It was a great TV show,.

    Voyager is so close to being my second favorite Trek series after The Original Series. It is probably the most consistent series of all the Star Trek series. There's not as many ups and downs in the number of good to "blah" episodes as The Next Generation, which is my number two favorite Trek series, because The Next Generation reached higher highs than Voyager, but with more valleys unfortunately. Voyager was a a smooth and consistent ride and the cast was pretty good and likable as well. Some of all of Trek's best characters populate the show (The Doctor, Seven and Tuvok). It seems like people either love or hate Voyager and honestly, like the hate for the newest films with the alternate Original Series cast, I just don't get the hate. There is really not much to hate about it, it is a quality piece of Trek and Sci-Fi in general. I liked it VERY much! And it's the one Star Trek that my wife, Shannon actually seems to like too!

    Enjoyed seeing where it all began although there are some dull episodes. So glad Genevieve Bujold dropped out and Kate Mulgrew took over. She has the right combination of energy, authority and femininity to make the character convincing and likeable.
