Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Lineage”

Torres is pregnant, and this leads to all sorts of craziness, from the entire ship congratulating her and giving her advice to a flashback to her childhood trauma to her manipulating the EMH and being unethical. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch examines a “Lineage.”

An excerpt:

First of all, in this episode written and directed by men in a season in which the show-runner is a man, it’s a really bad look that the entire episode is about men telling a woman what she can’t do with her own body during a pregnancy. This is especially hilarious on a show with a female lead as the captain—said captain is notably absent for most of the episode, showing up briefly to congratulate the happy couple and again to decline the invitation to get involved. What a waste.
