Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Blink of an Eye”

Voyager gets stuck in orbit of a planet where time moves much much faster, and the “Sky Ship” becomes a major part of the world’s mythology over the centuries while Janeway and the gang try to get unstuck. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch sees civilizations rise in the “Blink of an Eye.”

An excerpt:

But the episode is sold on some excellent quick-and-dirty character development by scripter Joe Menosky. We see several sets of two people—the shaman and the guy making sacrifices, the protector and his erstwhile mentor, the two guys at the telescope, and the two astronauts—who create instant, lasting impressions. These are people we come to care about, even though they’re all dead within seconds of our encountering them.
