  • Feels like a TNG episode

    This episode is not bad, at all. I re-watched it recently, and it was perfectly entertaining. The alien guest star was actually decently acted, and a likable character. But watching this episode is really odd experience. In an eerie way, this episode seems to play the same trick on the audience that the alien characters play on Voyager's crew; giving us a full experience, but then completely erasing our memories of it as soon as it's over.

    And for some reason, this episode really felt like a "Next Generation" episode, not a "Voyager" episode. Maybe it was the sheer randomness of the story. "Voyager," even in its lamest episodes, still has a feel of continuity. But "Unforgettable" has the out-of-the-blue feel and simplistic moral arguments that your average "Next Generation" episode has. This is not a bad or good thing; it's .moreless
  • Impossible

    So, an alien race no where near Earth, but okay, in the same galaxy at least! (ugh) knows how not just how to erase an alien's memory, BUT THE EXACT MEMORIES? AND THEY BELIEVE THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO THIS, AND WOULD DO THIS TO A RACE AS ADVANCED AS THEM AND RISK A POSSIBLE INTERPLANETARY WAR OVER INTER-ALIEN ROMANCE? Oh my lame.
  • Unforgettable

    Unforgettable was actually a forgettable episode of Star Trek: Voyager and though I enjoyed watching the episode it certainly wasn't the best, nor did it have much to do with a larger story line unless you count the love interest of Chakotay. There was some action, drama and intrigue and the story was decent and played out well. I wonder what the future holds for Chakotay and I look forward to watching the next episode!!!

    Voyager crew detects some type of weapons being fired, but no ships. A few cloaked ships suddenly appear. They are in battle. One of the ships hails voyager. They ask to speak to Chakotay. Their ship is in distress. Chakotay and an away team beam over to the damaged ship. Chakotay rescues a woman named Kellin. She says she knows Chakotay. But Chakotay can’t seem to remember her. Kellin claims she was aboard voyager for two weeks. Kellin tells Chakotay that they were in love. It seems Kellin’s race is easily forgotten due to their secretive nature.moreless
  • Just to add my two cents. I won't go again into depictingthe plot. Just comments.

    1. Selective memory erasing, hhmmmm!!

    2. The Doctor also forgot about Kellen, hmmmm!

    3. Since Total Recall and other movies everybody knows that the best way to preserve one's memory is recording oneself telling the holestory so, why didn't Kellen, knowing herself all the procedures regarding the erasing of memry didn't take some "precautions"? She surelly would know what to do. She knew the hunter was after her.

    4. Then it would be easy for Chakotay to use the same device on the hunter.

    5. I believe they wanted to save Chakotay for some more suggested love scenes with Janeway.

    6. So why don't choose another character to fall in love with Kellen?

    7. She could really be a good addon to the crew with her knowledge of the proton cannons and stealth tech.

    Could go longer but enough said.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: After Kellin is shot by the tracer's weapon toward the end of the episode, she is shown lying on the bio bed in Sickbay. The strange thing is that she is lying in the opposite direction from everyone else who has lain on that bed before her (i.e. her head is where her feet should be and vice versa.)

    • Nitpick: Kellin claims that any member of a species different from hers will lose all memory of their encounter in just a couple of hours. If that is true the crew of Voyager would forget about her every time they wake up after eight hours sleep.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Neelix: Commander, I don't think you can analyze love. It's the greatest mystery of all. No one knows why it happens, or doesn't. Love is a chance combination of elements. Any one thing might be enough to keep it from igniting. Mood, glance, remark. And if we could define love, predict it, it would probably lose its power.
