Now this has to be the best one so far. It seems to take off on the same idea as the Star Trek TNG epsiode "Inner Light" in which Picard lives a man's full life in 25 minutes, long my favorite TNG episode, and now that I'm reading about ST online, finding it's generally a fan favorite. "Blink of an Eye" takes the same idea a step further. It's not as good, yet good for the same reasons. The plot is much simpler, though.


Voyager comes in contact with a planet that looks like nothing you've ever seen, and each second that passes on Voyager is a day down on the planet. Voyager gets trapped in the atmosphere, and the episode begins with cavemen seeing a new star in the sky. They worship all the stars, and Voyager is the brightest by far, so they think it's the leader of their gods. The Prime Directive goes (albeit unintentionally) right out the window as this society bases its whole existence around Voyager, from what little they know and what all they assume about it.


Again, best Voyager episode so far. :cheers: I give it a 6.

Great episode. Voyager gets stuck in the orbit of a weird planet which has a time variant, so a second or two on Voyager is a day on the planet. The people of the planet have speculated voyager ever since. Not only that but Voyager's being there causes earthquakes to happen on the planet's surface. When the people of the planet finally discover space travel, they send Jin from Lost to study Voyager (he obviously escaped the island) and he ends up saving them. Again, a great episode.
