Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Living Witness”

We end the year on a high note: one of the best Star Trek episodes ever, regardless of series. The EMH backup module is activated 700 years in the future, and he needs to correct some serious misapprehensions about history. The final Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch of 2020 gets testimony from a “Living Witness.”

An excerpt:

This episode manages to be a discourse on history, a social commentary in the problematic relationship between the Vaskans and the Kyrians, which has obviously remained an issue for seven centuries, and a delightful romp through a fun-house-mirror version of the Voyager crew. Best of all is that the ending is a very Trekkish one of hope for peace and cooperation.
