Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Resistance”


Janeway is stuck on a planet with Don Quixote, more or less. It’s a cliché story, but it works thanks to fantastic work by everyone involved, particularly guest Joel Grey. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch feels “Resistance” is not futile, as this is one of the show’s best episodes.

An excerpt:

I also admire Klink simply letting the crew do their jobs without any of the baggage. Neelix is The Local Guide, and he does that job very well in that episode, and we don’t get any of the character’s goofy excesses. Kim is The Science Guy, throwing technobabble ideas at Chakotay fast and furious, while Chakotay is The First Officer, holding things together while Janeway’s out of commission, the same way Spock, Riker, and Kira have done for their captains in the past.
