    the plot is cloudish

    weak weak plot, this should be unacceptable in the Star Trek universe, but we see it more often than we'd like to admit...

    maybe it was on purpose so that they could focus on character development, which they did, but there' no better way to get to know a character than by their actions in an engaging storyline

    The Cloud

    By TrueTvWatcher, Aug 28, 2011

    The Cloud was a superb episode of Star Trek Voyager and I really enjoyed watching this episode because it was full of character growth and development and the characters truly make this show great. Captain Janeway is a force to be respected and I really like howEnsign Harry Kim invited the Captain to join him and the other at the end of the episode. The main story about the Nebula was interesting and enjoyed the crew trying to solve the mystery of what was going on and what to do about it. Neelix provided some great comic relief and he is a great character. I look forward to watching the next episode of Star Trek Voyager!!!!!!!moreless

    When they are not so busy on board, Voyager is usually at its best.

    I enjoy these sort of episodes, where relationships on board are explored and we get to know the crew. There is so much that could be written, just of normal stuff going on in their day to day job on board Voyager. There shouldn't be any need to constantly be in danger to keep viewers interested.

    Sadly though they mix in with this another identity, and hard to believe that of the first few episodes they have now entered two "nebula" of sort. What is explored here is the confusing state they are all in. Kathryn is struggling with her mixed feeling of leadership. Does being inaccessible almost stand offish serve her here so far away from home. Tom and Harry are wondering similar things, not sure if they should be too friendly with their captain. The friendship of Kathryn and Chakotay is starting to form via their discussion about his animal guide.

    Neelix is a bit more confusing though, as he seems to swing between happy and unhappy within minutes. Lovely episode that allowed itself to look at the crew. Hope there will be many of those.moreless

When the “Voyager” breaks through and reaches the center of the nebula. The ship is attacked by blue globs which drain the energy from the ship. Janeway orders the ship to reverse course. The reach the same barrier they encounter when they entered. The ship punches its way out. The doctor investigates samples of the blue glob and insists the nebula is a living being.moreless

    Janeway takes the ship into a nebula to replenish the ship's power supply. Members of the crew introduce each other to their recreational activities.

    Having such a thin storyline to work with, telewriters (is that even a word?) Michael Piller and Tom Szollosi figured they might as well use the time to look into how the crew are adapting to being stranded on the other side of the galaxy. Most of it is just filler dialogue ("My, Captain, is that a new shade of lipstick you're wearing?") but there are some humorous as well as interesting bits, the best of which being our first introduction to the Chez Sandrine bar, which would later become the place to be whenever they wanted to avoid building a new set. You may also notice that Neelix acts slightly out of character in this episode. So all in all, if you're trying to get the good side of star trek, skip this episode, or just skip straight to chapter four.moreless
