Overview

The seventh and final season of the third Star Trek spin-off television series, Star Trek: Voyager, has been given the outstanding DVD presentation seen in all of the series' previous releases. The season's 26 episodes, spread out over seven discs, all feature an impressive Dolby Digital 5.1 audio mix and sharp picture quality shown in the full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1. High points of the season include an interplanetary starship race, characters Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) and B'Elanna Torres' (Roxann Dawson) wedding in the episode "Drive, and the return of the Star Trek: The Next Generation classic character Q (John de Lancie) in "Q2." Special attention is rightfully given to the action-packed yet predictable feature-length final episode, "Endgame, which sees Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) facing off in a final showdown with the dreaded Borg Queen (Alice Krige) in order to get Voyager safely back to Earth. The set's seventh disc finds a Trekkie treasure chest of bonus features. "Braving the Unknown: Season 7" contains an overview of the entire season with cast and crew interviews. "Endgame" is looked at in depth in "Coming Home: The Final Episode," while the science of Star Trek is examined in "Real Science with Andre Bormanis." "Voyager Time Capsule: The Doctor" shows actor Robert Picardo discussing his seven years on Voyager and just how his nameless character became such a hit with the show's viewers. A featurette on a Voyager-themed attraction at the Star Trek Experience theme park in Las Vegas, a photo gallery, and several hidden Easter eggs close out this well-rounded concluding set for an excellent series.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The seventh and final season of Voyager is rife with contradictions: the series shows definite signs of fatigue, but at the same time its producers -- perhaps emboldened by the knowledge that the show is coming to an end -- go for broke with some very offbeat and provocative story lines. The consequences of racial and societal prejudice are forcefully demonstrated in the allegorical episodes "Critical Care" and "Repentance." In the former, the Doctor (Robert Picardo) is abducted from Voyager and put to work in a hospital where patients receive different levels of care based on their social status. The latter involves Voyager's contact with a prison transport ship whose "convicts" have been jailed because of misconceptions about their various species. But the 2000-01 season also found time for playful episodes, some of which feature characters and plot devices from other Star Trek spin-offs. The most entertaining of these is "Inside Man," featuring Marina Sirtis as empath Deanna Troi, the character she played in The Next Generation. In "Shattered," Commander Chakotay (Robert Beltran) finds himself in a state of "temporal flux" when Voyager passes near a spatial rift; this enables him to pass through time and observe incidents from the ship's past (thereby allowing the use of stock footage from earlier episodes). Jeri Ryan, whose Seven of Nine reinvigorated Voyager two seasons earlier, takes center stage in "Human Error," which finds Seven perfecting her social skills on the holodeck at the expense of her duties, resulting in a dangerous situation. "Drive" sees the marriage of recurring characters B'Elanna Torres (Roxann Dawson) and Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill). The season -- and series -- finale, "Endgame," takes place in the future, as now-Admiral Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) attempts to reverse the effects of time on the Voyager's decades-long journey to the Alpha Quadrant. With this outstanding two-parter Star Trek: Voyager comes to a richly satisfying conclusion.

Star Trek Voyager - The Complete Seventh Season 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Amigo_van_Helical More than 1 year ago
Although the overall story like is weaker than that of its companion series, "Deep Space Nine" ("DS9"), "Star Trek Voyager" ("STV") has a charm of its own. The first few seasons seemed to focus on the Ocampa character "Kess", while the later seasons focused on the former borg drone "Seven of Nine" (aka "Seven") and her sometimes humorous other times poignant efforts to recover her human nature. Both actresses were good and they stood out from most of the other cast members. "The Doctor" was also a reasonably strong character, but his story line was less consistent and less sympathetic. The writing could be unsatisfying at times and some of the plots seemed contrived (how many times can a star ship commander make the same mistake and "take a closer look" at some weird phenomenon without first putting some kind of exit strategy in place?). Also, the science seemed really bad in spots. All-in-all, STV is worth watching, however. It is mostly light, harmless fun interspersed with some genuinely good storytelling. What was missing were the grand story arcs and interesting sub-plots of DS9.
