Over at Star Trek: Hypertext, Jamahl Epsicokhan has put up his review of 'Muse', the final 'Voyager' episode written by Joe Menosky. Awarding it 3 and a half stars, Jamahl thought the episode was "one of the season's most interesting shows to ponder":
It helps knowing going in that "Muse" is Joe Menosky's farewell script to Voyager (since, as many know, the writer/producer will not be returning for the series' final season). The episode ends up being the ultimate Voyager self-reflective commentary on the process of writing for an audience. As I watched the show, I realized I wasn't so much watching people on the screen as I was watching a writer making comments through characters who were living out that same writing process. "Muse" is an allegory rolled into a Voyager tale which itself is rolled into a myth.
