I never suffered from Coulrophobia...but this episode sure could have created that phobia within me!
15 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Coulrophobia is the relatively common fear of clowns. I never particularly felt afraid of clowns--but after seeing this episode, perhaps I am becoming coulrophobic! Yes, the show sends us to a land of super-annoying harlequins. As for me, I'd rather meet the clowns in the Twisted Metal games or "It" than hang around the annoying clowns in "The Thaw"!

When the show begins, Voyager finds some folks in suspended animation. They would like to revive them but decide to try sending Ensign Kim and Lieutenant Torres into the weird netherworld where the aliens now live instead of just yanking them all out of this cryo chambers. Unfortunately, the frozen popsicle people are living in a TOTALLY STUPID world filled with hellish clown-like beings. I just wanted them to shut up--and perhaps these folks will be stuck there forever!!

Overall, this is an astoundingly stupid episode. It's awful and annoying and the sort of thing non-Star Trek fans can toss in our faces as a reason NOT to watch the shows! Yecch! This is one of my nominations for worst shows of any Trek series due to horrible over- acting, a script that just doesn't make sense and....CLOWNS!!!!!
