Star Trek: Voyager
Saturday, 9.30pm, 11 In Drone, Voyager is joined by a new creature, a mutation who, thanks to a transporter accident, creates himself using the doctor’s 29th century mobile emitter (the action generally takes place in the 24th century) and some of Seven of Nine’s nanoprobes. The performance as the futuristic drone by Star Trek frequent guest actor J. Paul Boehmer is by turns delightfully hammy and dramatic. A quick study, the new drone assimilates the knowledge of the universe, including his own predicament, with tragic consequences. Unaccustomed to her parenting role, Seven must adapt as the drone sacrifices himself to save Voyager.
