Star Trek Voyager went off the air 15 years ago today. To commemorate this very depressing occasion, here are what I truly believe are the five best nonsequiturs (but not from the episode “Non-Sequitur”) from that occasionally brilliant, often unintentionally hilarious show.


We know there are more. Many, many more. These just happen to be my favorites, but please share yours in the comments.

1) “Get the cheese to sickbay.”

2) “There’s coffee in that nebula.”

3) “It appears we have lost our sex appeal, captain.”


5) “Do nothing!”

Bonus: Alien who puffs out his face in annoyance

Voyager is the only Trek series I've never gotten around to watching. Can anyone recommend a good episode guide or watching strategy so I can avoid the dross and enjoy the best? Is it worth bothering with? I love the basic concept but I've heard the execution isn't the best.
