Last year, my husband and I were talking about startrek.com’s poll results of fans’ favorite top 10 episodes of all of Star Trek. I disagreed with some of the episodes and definitely the order, so my husband suggested I create a top 10 list favorite of each series, and then at the end of our current rewatch do my own top 10 of all the series. So now it’s time for Voyager! It’s crazy to think that sometime this year I will be ready to do the Top 10 list of all Star Trek! But for now, Voyager…
10. Caretaker (Season One)
For #10 I’m going with the pilot that sets the entire series up. It’s the best pilot among the different Trek series in my opinion (and I say that with assurance after rewatching the Enterprise pilot and having watched the Discover pilot).
9. Before and After (Season Three)
This is an alternate timeline story that has always just stuck with me.
8. Deadlock (Season Two)
I believe this is the first time Harry Kim dies in the series… poor, Harry Kim… But in all seriousness, this is like the prototype for Year of Hell and is an engaging episode.
7. Eye of the Needle (Season One)
There’s something about the Romulan they meet up with. I don’t know, but I really like this episode where Voyager has their first hope of getting back home.
6. Human Error (Season Seven)
I really like this one because we finally get to see the side of Seven I’ve been wanting more of since Unimatrix Zero (which wasn’t that long before this, honestly).
5. Year of Hell (Season Four)
I used to say this was the best of Voyager, but on my rewatch I was more underwhelmed by the villain. It’s still a standout two-parter for sure, however.
4. Counterpoint (Season Five)
I love the trickery and deceit in this one!
3. Unimatrix Zero (Seasons Six and Seven)
This two-parter concluded season six and ushered in seven with – what else? – BORG.
2. The Killing Game (Season Four)
Maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for all things WWII, but I love this two-parter where the crew of Voyager believes they’re living in war time when they’re actually stuck on their own holodeck.
1. Bride of Chaotica! (Season Five)
I mean, this episode. A great homage to science fiction and so much fun.
