Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “The Haunting of Deck Twelve”

Call me a bluff old traditionalist, but if you’re going to title an episode “The Haunting of Deck Twelve,” shouldn’t there, at some point, perhaps be a haunting on deck twelve? The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch calls title bullshit on “The Haunting of Deck Twelve.”

An excerpt:

There are some good moments in the episode, but most of them come from the Borg kiddos pestering Neelix with questions. My favorite was Icheb correcting Neelix misstating the technobabble.

I will give the episode one piece of credit: the use of the computer’s voice interface, making use of its library of preprogrammed phrases and responses, is an incredibly clever method of communicating.

But that’s pretty much it. The episode itself is completely nowhere, and while the framing sequence tries very hard to cover up how nowhere it is, it mostly fails, too.
