My Voyager articles originally appeared on the professional online site Mania Magazine and in the fan club zine Now Voyager. I am in the midst of writing retro reviews of the series for TrekToday, so in order to avoid confusion, I have taken down my old reviews and will replace them one by one as I rethink my initial reactions to the episodes. All material on these pages is (c) Michelle Erica Green; feel free to link, but please do not repost, reprint or forward without written permission.
