The final season of Star Trek: Voyager has some true gems of socioeconomic principles; “Critical Care” and “Unimatrix Zero” are good examples. Many of these had timely implications when they first aired, and these still hold true today. Is medical care being rationed properly? Can rebellion be brought about without anyone really knowing they are participating—at least at the start?

In this episode of The Briar Patch, hosts Guinevere Liberty Nell and Patrick Devlin discuss the seventh season of Voyager in terms of essential socioeconomics. We talk about principles such as the invisible hand and which episodes from Voyager’s final season best tackle them.
