I watched all of the first season of Star Trek Voyager when it came out. In fact, the comic store I used to work in had a huge viewing for the premiere episode and we invited all of the regular customers in and converted the store into a mini movie theater to watch it. All the pomp and circumstance that went into that first episode wasn't great, but it did give us some hope that the series wouldn't completely blow. We were wrong.

A website I came across said the fourth season was the best:

http://www.denofgeek.com/tv/star-trek-voyager/25477/why-star...

And I have to argue that with this list. Because almost every episode I remember went the exact same way.

So this is a Star Trek: Voyager episode generation form! You can now create your very own ST:V episodes much in the same way I envision the show's writers may have. A kind of MadLib format of sorts. Choose your path through the episode or make up your own choices. I don't think it really makes a difference.

Enjoy!
