Not Alone
3 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a pivotal episode in the canon. The ship has entered a period of dead space that they call "The Void." Boredom reigns and they are on each other's nerves. There is a need to conserve energy and so their jobs are curtailed and since there are no challenges, they are left to their thoughts. This is when Janeway drops into depression and self-pity and guilt. Remember that it was her unilateral decision that put them in their predicament. She withdraws from the crew. But a "savior" is at hand. A disgusting toxic cargo dumper shows up. It turns out an alien race is being destroyed by this guy's awful stuff. One of that race ends up on board Voyager and we find just how evil our dumper is. Suddenly, everyone has a purpose and Janeway is put to the test. The crew must make a serious decision. This is a nicely written and produced episode. Great start.
