Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Tsunkatse”

UPN got their hands on WWF Smackdown, and to promote it, they had Dwayne Johnson guest star on Voyager — except this was back when he was going by “The Rock” and imitating Spock’s eyebrow trick on wrestling shows. However, they also got DS9 veterans J.G. Hertzler and Jeffrey Combs, who are fabulous as always. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch has a hard time pronouncing “Tsunkatse.”

An excerpt:

Jeri Ryan and Tim Russ are both superb, as always. Russ in particular does excellent work with Tuvok as good sounding board: from his semi-amused pointing out that the silence wasn’t awkward to his more direct pointing out that dying for entertainment isn’t really a viable alternative to killing for entertainment to his final reminder that remorse and guilt are very human. And Ryan plays Seven’s struggles with her usual restrained emotion.
