  • Shattered


    Shattered was a perfect and very entertaining episode of Star Trek: Voyager and I really enjoyed watching this episode which focused on Chakotay time traveling through rifts aboard Voyager. It was a well written time travel story, great range of characters from Voyager's past and future and there was also a lot of action, drama, and suspense. I liked the ending with the Captain and Chakotay. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!

  • Voyager encounters an anomoly which causes different parts of the ship to be in different time spaces. Chakotay tries to fix the ship, by attempting to enlist Capt Janeway. But she thinks they're still in the Badlands, on a mission to capture Chakotay.moreless

    I know some people hate it when you can predict exactly what's going to happen in an episode. But, to be fair, the point of this episode wasn't to surprise or shock you. It was to take you down memory lane.

    We're in the middle of the seventh and last season, I suppose the Voyager folks decided to make this episode to remind us of all the crazy things Voyager went through. And, boy, what a memory!

    First, the whole Maquis-Starfleet thing. Then there were references to the times when the Doctor didn't have a mobile emitter, the episode where the telepathic pitcher plant (or entity, actually) tried to eat them, where the race of telepaths tried to keep them asleep indefinitely, when Capt. Janeway was still engaged to Mark, and lots more. Not to mention the times with the Kazon and Seska when they tried to take over Voyager, the time when the Borg formed an alliance with Voyager, when the ship was invaded by "very large germs", the list goes on and on ...

    I just really enjoyed this episode because it reminded me of all the memories and all the storylines that Voyager's given me.

  • One of the best episodes of Voyager!

    Frankly, this is a great way to do a clip show without being a clip show!

    It would be rather easy to complain about the plot holes and the inconsistencies (exactly how do the future folks pass through the barries to exist as Icheb and Naomi do?).

    However, this episode is pure fun. I really can't complain, I just have a long wish list.

    How awesome it would have been to have seen Kess again. Or how fun it would have been to have a quick scene from one of the novelizations

    I loved this episode.moreless
  • A real good episode on my part. It was a good way to review everything that has happened up to that point.

    This is a good type of episode in a series of any type of genre because it is a flashback through the history of the series. In this case, it is a flashback of Voyager and how it ended up to being what it was at that moment, or 7 years in their journey. It is also a good way to show the audience what has happened in case they missed the beginning. What happens in this episode is that Chakotay is hit by a energy bean from the warp core and it changed his form into a young boy and a old man. Eventually, he finds out later that the whole ship was fractured into different time frames and he has to repair the damage with members from each timeline.moreless

    Icheb is teaching Naomi Wildman genetics in the cargo bay. Chakotay asks Icheb to keep his beverage hiding place a secret. Chakotay has dinner with Janeway. Voyager gets rocked by a gravimetric force of a spatial rift. Chakotay heads to Engineering when the ship gets hit by a plasma beam. In Engineering, The warp coil destabilizes. Torres saves it, but not before the beam hits Chakotay. Chakotay is beam directly to sickbay. In sickbay, Chakotay learns he is in a different time period. It seems as if the space time continuum has been shattered. Chakotay must save Voyager. I rate this episode a 9.8moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • This episode includes the last verbal mention of the Maquis on Star Trek Voyager.

    • Nitpick: Before Chakotay and Janeway enter engineering, the Captain asks, "So who is this Seska?" In Season 1's "Parallax", Janeway tells Torres that Tuvok had provided her with information on everybody in Chakotay's Maquis cell before Voyager left Deep Space Nine. She should've already known who Seska was, even if nobody knew she was a Cardassian disguised as a Bajoran.

    • During this episode, Seven of Nine's voice is run through a vocal processor. However, when she first appeared as a Borg drone, her voice was unaffected.

    • Nitpick: Tuvok still has a visible pulse despite being dead.

    • Nitpick: While in the Holodeck, Captain Janeway asks "A monochromatic environment?". However, the environment of the captain Proton series is not monochromatic. Monochromatic is a colour scheme limited to variations of one hue, a hue with its tints and/or shades.

      The correct question would have been "A achromatic environment" since the achromatic values goes from deep black to clear white.

    • Nitpick: The Naomi Wildman from the future timeline says that when she was little, she wanted nothing more than to be the "assistant captain". However, Naomi wanted to be the "captain's assistant" when she was little. It seems that Vanessa Branch flipped the two words.

    • Goof: After leaving the mess hall, Chakotay calls Paris the "chief medic". However, the EMH would be Voyager's Chief Medical Officer, being the only doctor left on the ship. At most, Paris is a nurse/field medic.

    • Goof: Janeway says that she started out with a crew of 153 (obviously excluding the Maquis as she is from a time before they joined Voyager). But "Caretaker" clearly establishes that the crew complement was 141.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Chakotay: What about the Temporal Prime Directive?
      Janeway: To hell with it.
      Chakotay: With all due respect, it's a little presumptuous to think you have the right to change everyone's future.

    • Janeway: (upon her and Chakotay's exit from the Chaotica program) If we restore the timeline, remind me to cancel Mr. Paris's holodeck privileges.

    • Chaotica: Arachnia, you beguiled me once with your foul potions. Did you think you could toy with my affections again?
      Janeway: (to Chakotay) Were these characters always this ridiculous?
      Chaotica: If I order Lonzak to pull that lever, you'll never mock me again.

    • Janeway: (holding a hypospray of the Doctor's special temporal serum) Have Mr. Kim run a full spectral analysis. For all I know, this is poison and Mr. Chakotay is trying to assassinate me.
      Chakotay: (gets the drop on Janeway and holds the hypospray to her neck) She's right. It's poison and I'll use it.

    • Chakotay: Let me guess, you burned the roast again.
      Janeway: Once, a long time ago, I called this replicator a glorified toaster. It never forgave me.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Chakotay: In the middle of the journey of our life, I found myself astray in a dark wood where the straight road had been lost.

      This is a translation of the first tercet (stanza) of Dante's La Commedia Divina (Divine Comedy:-

      "Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
      mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
      ché la diritta via era smarrita."

      The Divine Comedy is an epic poem, which on the surface, represents Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven but at a deeper level it represents the soul's journey to god.
