Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Drive”

The Delta Flyer is off to the races! And in the end, Paris and Torres have tied the knot! Plus, three past DS9 guest stars who are all less interesting than they were on the other show! The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch takes a “Drive.”

An excerpt:

Having said that, I do like that Kim pretty much singlehandedly saves the day. And the progress of the Torres-Paris relationship mostly works, though the cliché of the couple almost breaking up right before they tie the knot was tired when they did it with Miles and Keiko on TNG and is really tired here. But Roxann Dawson in particular plays Torres’ uncertainty quite well, and McNeill sells both Paris’ depth of feeling as well as his being completely out of his depth when getting the nuances—though he does make the effort to bridge the gap in the end.
