Jessica's Suggestions!

In prepping for captainship of an upcoming episode choice, Jessica delivers her top picks for you to watch this week.

  • Futures End (Season 3, episode 8) -  Voyager gets thrown into the future and we see Sarah Silverman.
  • The Q and the Grey (Season 3, episode 11) - Look for Janeway's terrific line: "What, that's it?!"
  • Darkling (Season 3, episode 18) - We see Kes' adventurous spirit and the Doctor alters his personality. Bad Doctor!

Next Up: Year of Hell (1 and 2)

Jessica's Prediction

Voyager is going to do what it loves to do, which is try to power through a gas cloud and not know that things are getting timey-whimy. They'll live through a year of things and people breaking down and find out on the other side only 3 days have passed.
