Random Trek Thursday (née Tuesday) #16 – Night (VOY)

CHAKOTAY: Seven, I want good news. That’s an order.
SEVEN: Then I must disobey. I have no good news to report.

This week’s Random Trek is late because I’ve got a floater in my eye that has chosen now to make its presence very known. It’s very slowly drifting out of focus and I’m getting used to it but it was unsettling on the first day,

This week’s random Trek episode though is finally a Voyager one, the Season 5 opener “Night“.

And for a ship in a bottle episode it’s a surprising cracker of an episode. Chakotay has a lot of solid work to do in this episode which makes for a pleasant change. In fact everyone gets to shine a bit.

We also get introduced to two new species as well as a classic Star Trek moral dilemma. Also the crew all mutiny and I hope that Janeway court martials the lot of them when they get back to the alpha quadrant.

Hard to pick a specific visually appealing scene to draw (I’ve drawn the opening scenes in black and white a lot so I wrote that off).

I just really enjoyed Chakotay in this episode and his order to Seven of Nine for some good news is a great example of what kind of Starfleet Captain he would make.

This is part of the Random Trek Tuesday. I have gathered together EVERY episode of Star Trek, every season, every series and every film except for Star Trek Picard and put them into a big spreadsheet. Every week I let the randomiser pick one episode out which I’ll watch and then draw a scene from. You’ll find the original over on the Lee Draws Stuff shop immediately after publishing here on a Tuesday night (unless already sold).

Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal entries which include sneak peeks, behind the scenes and first looks then head over to Patreon and subscribe for as little as $1 (US) a month.
