- Over at St-Hypertext, Jamahl Epsicokhan has posted his review of the Voyager finale 'Endgame.' Jammer wasn't impressed by the episode, awarding it two and a half stars.
The irony is that I don't think the writers were in any position to deny the crew getting home, because their getting home is about all the real satisfaction we can get from a finale where that becomes the whole point. That's why I think it was a mistake to wait until the final episode to answer this question - because the more important questions are in what happens after the crew gets home. "Endgame" attempts half-heartedly to answer such questions with the future timeline device at the story's outset, but everything about that timeline is erased, so we don't have a real ending to hold onto.
