  • The main problem I have with this script is the way it twists Kes' character

      Star Trek: Voyager - “Fury” is an episode that excels in special effects, but not so much in story. In this episode, Kes returns, after being gone for over three years.

      She returns and attacks Voyager in what plays out in as some of Star Trek’s best special effects.

      She uses her telepathic powers to cause several sections of a deck to explode from both sides as she walks down the corridor.

      The exploding decks clearly have a CGI look, but that does not change the fact that the exploding sections of the deck look fantastic and really intense.

      The special


      effects shine once again when Voyager comes under attack by a race that is hoping to harvest the crews’ organs because they are suffering from a deadly disease and need fresh organs for replacement purposes.

      The shots of Voyager trying to pull free from the extended clamps of the attacking ship as well as part of the exterior hull being torn apart and rupturing and also the angle in which Voyager is shown to fire photon torpedoes, all shine wonderfully and add to the excitement and tension of the attack scenes.

      It is a shame the script did not come across ...


      • as being half as good as the special effects.

        The main problem I have with this script is the way it twists Kes’ character.

        She claims that the crew abandoned her, yet she was the one that left Voyager willingly.

        What was Voyager supposed to do? Just hang around while she explored her new powers and abilities? Kes left happy, and now she returns, blaming the crew for her inability to control and understand what was happening to her? It is very difficult to develop any sort of compassion for the character of Kes because she just behaves so irrationally.

        I

        did like though that because she traveled back in time to the early days of Voyager that the early personalities of the characters were sort of revisited, like the Doctor’s preoccupation with coming up with a name and the crew not really treating him like a real person and instead more like a hologram.

        It was also nice seeing Janeway with her old hairdo again, which I wish she would have kept throughout the series.

        These qualities help make the episode watchable, but the way the character of Kes is twisted to tell a story of misguided revenge just did not appeal to me.
