Star Trek VOY: Lifesigns
Season 2, Episode 19
TNL Rating: 6 Solid
Running Time 1:29

Crew of the Relativity

  • Captain Chris Sixx, a Trill
  • Science Officer Keri, possibly a Q
  • Engineering Officer Mike, a photonic engineer
  • Helmsman Bill, a human?

Join the crew of the USS Relativity in the 31st century as they travel back in time to review previous missions of great Starfleet ships. After reviewing each episode, the crew also tries earning a quatload of quatloos by answering historical trivia.

Episode Info

A non-aggressive, critically ill vidiian is brought on board. The Doctor is able to save her brain functions by transmitting them to the ship’s memory and implanting those in a hologram. Thus, Doctor Denara Pel is brought to life as a partially photonic being. Together, they work on the illness, but while working together, they started to fall in love. This was definitely the Doctor’s first love, and perhaps Denara’s as well. It’s like watching an early teen romance. The acting is superb, but this episode is marred by flawed the flawed B and C plots of Paris’ impudence, and the mole’s secret communications.

neurocortical stimulator

Don’t make the neurocortical stimulator clear – we can see the circuit board through the plastic!

internal organs

The internal organs shot – totally cool, especially on a 1996 TV budget!

 

applying epidermal layers

Applying the epidermal layers to the hologram, while fancy, is just silly. Still, the coolness won us over.

gigolo

Neelix and “the gigolo” (as credited) scare Doctor Denara Pel. I would be scared too!

studying the patient

Kes, the Doctor, and Doctor Denara Pel discuss the patient, Doctor Denara Pel.

Chakotay on the floor

Tom barely pushed Chakotay, and Chakotay took a fall – as if purposefully trying to get Paris in more trouble. It worked, but it was lame.

Suicide for 2 days of happiness

Denara is effectively trying to commit suicide for two days of happiness. She’s caught after she realizes that the Doctor would be playing Sherlock for the next two days.

Episode Info

Miles O’Brien keeps slipping forward in time for a minute or so, then jumps back into his regular time frame.

On the B side, someone is determined to gather intelligence on the Romulans, but Odo is vigilant.

Riley sneaks up on Kodos

Lt. Kevin Riley preparing to avenge his parents by murdering Kodos the Executioner

Star Trek TOS: The Conscience of the King, TNL Rating: 5/10 Average, running time 1:44.

The crew will also try to earn a quatload of quatloos by answering historical trivia after the review. So join¬†Captain Chris Sixx, Science Officer Keri, Chief Engineer Mike, and Helmsman Bill for this week’s mission.

This episode’s photo shows an excellent shot of Lt. Kevin Riley sneaking up on Kodos during the play. We thought it was really great to see some of the background characters get more screen time, and this background on Riley was great. Too bad he was only in two episodes.
