TrekToday - Julia Houston Reviews Season Finale

Julia Houston Reviews Season Finale

Over at About.com's Star Trek Fans, Julia Houston has uploaded her review of 'Unimatrix Zero', the 'Voyager' season finale. As she mentions in her pre-review comments, Julia seems to feel as if she is the only one who actually liked the show:

Everyone else out there must be watching a different Voyager. That's all I can think to explain it.

When this episode ended (or cut itself off for the summer, if you prefer), I was yelling "That's so cool!" to my friends and making faces at the extremely disturbing image of Tuvok, Torres and Janeway. Traditionally, I would have expected them only to have been assimilated without the knowledge that this was yet another of Janeway's cons, but that feels like something TNG or DS9 would do. (In fact, TNG already did it.)

In the Voyager universe, so many of the shows have been about out-conning the con that I like the sort of old-fashioned Mission Impossible feel here. We know that getting caught was part of the plan -- and no wonder that Paris didn't want Torres to go! -- but now we have to spend the summer wondering how it's part of the plan.

And so I went home happy (can't get Voyager from my TV), and posted my delight to the board and waited for all the other fans to start singing the cliffhanger's praises.

For the most part, I'm still waiting.

Read why people should sing the cliffhanger's praises in the full review.
