Product Description

Amazon.ca

If the first season of Star Trek: Voyager was a shakedown cruise, then season 2 represents a vital blossoming of the series' potential. As Captain Janeway, Kate Mulgrew maintained Starfleet integrity in the lawless expanse of the Delta quadrant, and became the ethical conscience of her still-uneasy Maquis/Starfleet crew, whose unanimous loyalty would be dramatically proven in "The '37's" (a first-season hold-over). Janeway's moral guidance would also assert itself in "Death Wish" (a "Q" episode featuring NextGen's Jonathan Frakes) and "Tuvix," in which life-or-death decisions landed squarely on her shoulders. Season 2 brought similar development to all the primary characters, deepening their relationships and defining their personalities, especially Robert Beltran as Chakotay (in "Initiations" and "Tattoo"), now firmly established as Janeway's best friend (and nearly more than that, in "Resolutions") and command-decision confidante.

Solid sci-fi concepts abound in season 2, although "Threshold" is considered an embarrassment (as confessed by co-executive producer Brannon Braga in a self-deprecating "Easter Egg" interview clip). It was a forgivable lapse in a consistently excellent season that intensified Janeway's struggle with the villainous Kazon, exacerbated by a Starfleet traitor in cahoots with the duplicitous Cardassian Seska (played by Martha Hackett, featured in a lively guest-star profile). The psychologically intense "Meld" (featuring a riveting guest performance by Brad Dourif) was a Tuvok-story highlight, and the aptly titled "Basics, Pt. 1" provided an ominous cliffhanger, including a second planetary landing (in a season full of impressive special effects) that left Voyager's fate in question. DVD extras are abundant and worthwhile, especially the season 2 retrospective and "A Day in the Life of Ethan Phillips" (who plays Neelix under a daily ordeal of latex makeup). Several Easter egg surprises--including a music video performance by Tim Russ (Tuvok)--are hidden (but easily found) among the "Special Features" menus on disc 7. All in all, this was one of Voyager's finest seasons, leaving some enticing questions to be answered in season 3. --Jeff Shannon

By M. Hart
Format:DVD
Less than one year following the concluding season of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" in 1994, executive producer/writer Rick Berman, along with Michael Piller and Jeri Taylor, created a fourth television series based upon the "Star Trek" universe originally created by Gene Roddenberry (1921-1991) in the 1960's. This fourth television series, entitled "Voyager" (which is the name of the Federation of Planets starship used in the series), first aired in January 1995, and ran for seven seasons until it concluded in May, 2001. Because "Voyager" aired initially in the month of January (instead of the traditional September), only 16 episodes were filmed for the first season. The succeeding six other seasons had 26 episodes each, for a grand total of 172 episodes for the entire series.
Unlike the previous three "Star Trek" television series, which (for the most part) took place within the bounds of the Federation of Planets (or in nearby sovereign areas of space, such as the Klingon Empire or the Romulan Empire) in the Alpha Quadrant, the starship Voyager is hurled tens of thousands of light-years from home into the previously unknown and unexplored Delta Quadrant, which is located at the far side of the Milky Way Galaxy. Even while traveling at warp 8 (the fastest safe speed that a typical starship can travel), it would take Voyager several decades to return to Earth. Hence, the series focuses on the survival of Voyager's Starfleet crew, who are completely isolated and unable to even maintain normal communications with Earth, as well as the crew's ultimate desire to find a way home faster than their ship is capable of doing. Also, along the way, Voyager adopts a few Delta Quadrant natives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Voyager DVD's! June 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I really love these dvd's. This season is the first one where voyager lands, ie, really cool effects. I also love the episode "deadlock", where voyager splits. Great idea! The special features are really awesome on this one. The "day with ethan phillips" is really cool, becuase it shows the application of his makeup. There is an awesome easter egg on this one too. It's one of Tim Russ's (Tuvok's) music videos! He sings Kushangaza (and has a nice voice might I add ;) )
I would really suggest these dvd's to anyone who loves all things star trek. I'm glad I added to my collection, and will watch these for years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars A bright star in the sky: an outstanding season May 20 2004
Format:DVD
Although I enjoyed season 1 of Voyager, I felt some of its episodes could have been better--especially the anti-climatic season finale that consisted of Tuvok having to train unruly Maquis cadets. Season 2 does not have this problem. From start to finish, it was a season that left me wanting to watch just one more episode before going to bed and then rewatching them. Every main character is given a chance to shine from Tuvok going berserk in Meld to Torres dealing with a delusional mega-bomb to Chakotay dealing with Seska and the Kazon (with a great return of Aron "Nog" Eisenberg as a young Kazon ready to earn his name by attempting to kill Chakotay in Initiations) in a couple of episodes. I also enjoyed the multi-episode plot arc with Paris becoming more and more of a jerk that meshes with the rogue Starfleeter who was busy betraying his comrades to the Kazon and the pregnant crewmember and her improbable baby. There were plenty of my favorite type of episodes, the "what is real/what is actually going on here" concept. Watching the Doctor announce, to the Viidean he was hot for, in the middle of surgery--like he was asking her to pass the scalpel--that he was attracted to her made me cringe with delight and it made me glad that this series continued the fish out of water/emotionally clueless character that each series has employed (Spock, Data, Odo, and the EMH Doctor). Finally, the season finale, Basics Part 1 was a romping kick in the stomach that has me desperately awaiting for the release of season 3 so I can see how the crew regains their lost ship from, as my friend calls them, the garbage head Kazons. All in all, this was one of the best seasons of any of the Star Trek series.

What I used to find typical of every Star Trek Series since TNG was that the first two seasons seem to be very klunky and disjointed. It isn't until the third season that everything seems to come together: the writing, the plot lines, the acting even gets better as the actors get more familiar and more comfortable with their roles.
Star Trek-Voyager in this regard has quite a few memorable moments that need to be highlighted here. It was pretty much the ugly stepchild of DS9, which at this time had far better resources devoted to it than Voyager did.
However, those few memorable moments really stuck out whereas in DS9, it was focused on the central plot of the Emissary and his relation to Bajor and the growing threat of the Dominion looming over the Alpha Quadrant. Voyager's memorable 2nd season episodes include some of my favorite episodes of all time: "Death Wish". This is the story of an exiled Q Continuum member who wants to die and was banished for wanting that. Voyager encounters this being and then encounters the other that we are more familiar with and they take Janeway on a tour through the Continuum, which seems to resemble everything and yet nothing at the same time. No other series ever went to great lengths to explain or depict the Continuum the way Voyager did. We would revisit this again in the Third season as it is depicted as a US Civil War Battle.
"The Thaw" is also another episode of note. Voyager answers a distress call from a planet that suffered an environmental catastrophe and the survivors went underground and slept through this in suspended animation, only to be held hostage by their manifestation and personification of their fears, which was brilliantly played by Michael McKean, of "Laverne & Shirley" and "Saturday Night Live" fame.
