Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Cathexis”


Chakotay’s in a coma, Paris is changing course, Torres is ejecting the warp core, Kes thinks things are weird, Janeway is nervous, Tuvok keeps being attacked, and someone turns off the EMH. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch really should look up the word “Cathexis.”

An excerpt:

Chakotay’s medicine wheel is also unfortunate, as it feels like they decided, “Hey, we need an Indian thing here” without really thinking it through. (This is likely an artifact of Voyager hiring a fake Native, “Jamake Highwater,” a.k.a. Jackie Marks, to be their consultant on Indigenous matters.) And it is kind of hilarious that Robert Beltran spends 90% of the episode in a coma.
