Oh hi, subspace tachyon pulse.

This is horrible, and Kate Mulgrew started much stronger, but I have to wonder which would have been better after a few seasons. Mulgrew's tendency to stare at the other actors with horribly contrived puppy dog eyes like their faces were made of adorable babies had a tendency to draw your attention away from scenes.

Eh, I find her voice is less irritating.

However, nothing could have saved that show from its weak writing.

Riskbreaker - 2012-02-03
You can barely hear her voice.

Less irritating than what?

Pillager - 2012-02-03
@ Riskbreaker: That's a vast improvement of Janeway's raw gravelly voice.

@Fatattay: See above comment.

I love that there's even an episode (the Warp 10 reverse-evolution one) so bad that the cast doesn't speak about it.

And Janeway was basically Katherine Hepburn in space. She should also never wear a phaser on her hip; the way she walks, I'm amazed it doesn't come flying out and kill someone. When she had her hair in a bun, it was useful, as you could tell how badly the ship was damaged by however many hairs had come loose during battle. As for her gravely voice, it's because she is (or was) a heavy smoker.

All that aside, it blew chunks nearly every episode.

in reference to how horribly shaped that ship is.

Shit at any speed.

An-al-is-is! Man, how did she get past the first line read? Mulgrew definitely was better, for what it was worth, which considering how fucking dull this series was is not saying much. But it's because she could take it when things got rough. Yeah, rough. That's how I she liked it. Because she...never...does...anything...nice! Rollin'. Rollin'. Rollin' on the river!

Sorry, Mike Nelson's Janeway is the best in show.

Speaking of, Bujold's delivery reminds me of the captain in "Space Mutiny".

(Janeway died on the way back to her home planet)

God, it's like she's in a different show from everyone else. She's working her way through that dialog like it's a giant pile of gravel.

Still, if she had stuck around Voyager might have been a lot more fun. At least once every other episode you'd have a scene where everyone is running around in a panic because the ship is about to explode, and Janeway would be just kind of there, barely acknowledging her surroundings.

This should would have been way better if the neurotic Barclay from TNG was a regular crew member and not just a special guest in later seasons.

Five stars for no Chakotay in this scene.
Dread Pirate Roberts - 2012-02-03
Gotta agree. It would've been awesome having him as a regular crew member (if not the captain of this ship. That'd have been interesting)

Spit Spingola - 2012-02-03
Trek-nobabble isn't easy but this sounds like she's doing it bad on purpose.
Spit Spingola - 2012-02-03
Forgot my stars. Also, she was in Dead Ringers. Sounding bored probably fits a Cronenberg movie.
StanleyPain - 2012-02-03
She's a great actress, just not suited to geekozoid realms such as this. It takes talent to read the lifeless, awkward dialogue that was written for Trek and make it not sound quite as a stupid.

Xenocide - 2012-02-03
She was nominated for Best Actress for playing Anne Boleyn back in the 70's. That's probably what was going though her mind throughout this whole shoot. She quit after the first day.

Raggamuffin - 2012-02-03
She sounds oddly sad. I kind of like the idea of a chronically depressed star trek captain.

Nevermind that shit, show me the original casting of Jenny McCarthy as Seven of Nine.

Imagine trying to watch this without any knowledge whatsoever of Trek language. It would make no sense.
