Voyager gets trapped in a starless void with only other trapped ships for company. They must decide to either become as nasty as them or find a better way. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch enters “The Void.”
What I like best about this episode is that it is, at heart, a perfect Star Trek episode. The underlying theme of the entire franchise has always been a future where people cooperate instead of fight. Sure, fighting happens, but ultimately it’s compassion that wins the day, from Kirk helping Balok even after he nearly killed them all to the Dominion War ending due to Odo offering to help the Great Link to the Burn being solved by Saru helping a hundred-year-old child.
