Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Voyager Season 4

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

[Jeri] Ryan's Seven of Nine is bound to make the biggest splash since Leonard Nimoy first donned his Spock ears. In a galaxy far, far away, a star is born.

Oct 24, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Voyager at times gets grief for not being as gritty as the premise promised, but even the most cynical of fans can't deny that "Year of Hell" delivered the goods, with the crew battling a genocidal villain (Kurtwood Smith) manipulating time itself.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Despite being a transparent attempt to 'sex up' the show, it was a tremendous introduction for the character and, more importantly, gave Voyager a much-needed kick up the arse in terms of both drama and conflict.

Oct 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Voyager's best season by far, however, was season four.

Oct 23, 2017 | Full Review…

This season was about as good as the show got.

Oct 21, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

By the end of the fourth season, Janeway's experiment may still be in progress, but the returns from Paramount's tinkering were readily identifiable. The Borg Babe was a smash.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4

    Resistance is futile as Jeri Ryan sexes up Star Trek: Voyager in its fourth season. The Borg take center stage as Voyage finally enters Borg space and gains a Borg crewmember, Seven of Nine. Seven proves to be the missing ingredient that the show needed to take off, as the character exponentially improves the quality of the storytelling. She fills the Spock/Data role of the outsider commenting on humanity. And, Seven's interactions with Capt. Janeway and the Doctor make for some of the strongest character dynamics of the show. Additionally, the series finally finds a compelling villain in the form of the Hirogen; who are reminiscent of the Klingons. This new energy is also reflected in some incredibly ambitious episodes, such as "Year of Hell," "The Killing Game," "Living Witness," and "One." Plus, the season is able to gather some impressive guest stars; including Kurtwood Smith, Tony Todd, Virginia Madsen, and Ray Wise. Season 4 of Star Trek: Voyager re-launches the series and finally makes it worth watching.

    I loved all of Voyager. Janeway is a total badass, and it continues to come across today as it did 25 years ago. There is classic Trek-ness, thought provoking themes about the nature of life and adventure. I would highly recommend the entire series to anyone. I just finished watching the whole series from beginning to end, and I found myself as sad to see it end the second time as I was the first.

    DS9 was better, but I still prefer to rewatch the whole show instead of a single minute of Discovery or Picard.

    The great error of the serie, do not evolve, one year on borg territory?!?!?
  • Feb 02, 2020
    Seven of nine absolutely a fantastic addition to an already spectacular show
  • Jun 17, 2018

    3rd fav trek tv show it had so much potential finally the show gets to its feet seven is its saving grace
  • Jan 04, 2016
    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!
