Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Riddles”

It’s flowers for Tuvok! Kind of. It’s an acting exercise for Tim Russ, at which it succeeds quite admirably, and is also a superb directing debut for Roxann Dawson. But the episode has its issues, also. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch solves some “Riddles.”

An excerpt:

It’s not really a surprise watching this episode to learn that Roxann Dawson has become a heavily in-demand director to the point where she hasn’t done any acting work in a decade, but has more than fifty directorial credits in that same span. In her inaugural turn behind the camera, we see excellent use of closeups, strong performances from all the actors, and some beautifully framed shots. This feels like one of the better outings from Jonathan Frakes or Winrich Kolbe, which is high praise indeed.
