Star Trek: 10 Hidden Details About The Voyager Costumes You Didn't Notice

Originally, Star Trek: Voyager, about the Federation starship trapped in the Delta Quadrant on a 75 year mission to get home wasn't going to be made. Star Trek: The Next Generation had just ended in the mid '90s, and that crew was primed for appearing in the franchise series of films. But Paramount and the powers that be wanted another Star Trek series on the air, and since Deep Space Nine featured a stationary space station, Voyager was developed as the next starship drama.

Voyager stood apart from the other Star Trek series for a number of reasons; it had a female captain, a motley crew that weren't all Starfleet officers, and an entirely different reason to be traveling among the stars. It also separated itself by the unique nature of its costumes, which included Seven of Nine's infamous silver catsuit, Neelix's laborious prosthetics, and Janeway's infamous bun. Below you'll

Critics Pick Their Favorite TV Doctors of All Time

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: Who is your favorite TV doctor of all time? (Doctor Who does not count.)

Damian Holbrook (@damianholbrook), TV Guide Magazine

I am not a fan of how TV usually represents doctors. They are mostly either super earnest and “I am going to save you at the risk of my career!” annoying or the “doesn’t play by the rules” rebel who rides a motorcycle down the ER hallway. Both are tired. And don’t even start me on the hard-ass doctors who obviously know everything and show it off while parading a crew of new residents through a massive hospital during the opening of soooooo many pilots. We get it: Their job is their life and they have a secret soft center.

No, I like my doctors like

Star Trek: The 10 Biggest Deep Space Nine Twists and Reveals, Ranked

Deep Space Nine remains one of the most beloved (and controversial) entries in the Star Trek franchise. It bridged the gap between Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager, separating itself from its predecessors by taking place on a space station, not a Federation starship exploring the universe.  It focused more on the interpersonal relationships of its inhabitants, rather than external situations.

This changed in later seasons, when it diverged from the normal episodic format of Star Trek and became a more serialized program with over-arching plots and inter-connected storylines. It's dark and gritty tone differed from Star Trek's normally upbeat and altruistic mode, but it never failed to capture fan's imagination with intriguing narratives and colorful characters. It was full of the most exciting plot twists and reveals of any Star Trek series. Below you'll find ten of the biggest, ranked.

10 Optimistic TV Dramas to Put a Spring in Your Step

Juliette Harrisson Aug 23, 2019

The world can be a depressing place, but that doesn't mean TV has to be. Here are some of the most optimistic TV dramas.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Think of a handful of the most watched and acclaimed dramas of recent years. The Handmaid’s Tale. Game Of Thrones. Chernobyl. They’re not a cheerful bunch, are they? Comedy-drama Orange is the New Black spent much of its final season highlighting the plight of those caught in the United States’ horrifying immigration systems. New Star Trek series Discovery has gone for a dark, gritty feel and some downbeat storylines. Even cute '90s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch has been re-imagined as dark teen drama The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, in which Sabrina’s aunts encourage her to be baptized into the Church of Night.

Star Trek: The 10 Biggest Voyager Twists and Reveals, Ranked

The unique and compelling writing of the Star Trek: The Original Series is what gave the show a dedicated fan following. The early series didn't have much going for it as far as special effects or even a costuming budget, but some great storytelling made up for those shortfalls. These often included twist endings that relied on a conclusion that subverted the audience's expectations. Enemies become allies, the hunter becomes the hunted, or things are not as they appear to be.

Star Trek: Voyager started with an interesting plot twist in the very first episode that set the tone and stakes for the rest of the series. Like it or hate it, Janeway and her crew took us to some interesting places that challenged our assumptions. Here are ten of the biggest twists and reveals that took place during the seven-year mission of the USS Voyager.
