IMDb ratings for all episodes of ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ (DataViz in R)

My first project in R! I saw some similar graphs on Twitter and was inspired to practice some Data Vizualization.

Ratings are averaged ratings from IMDb users. The data is freely available from IMDb.

R packages I used

For plot styling, I mainly used these two packages. I highly recommend them:

trekcolors: A color palette package

Predefined and customizable Star Trek themed color palettes and related functions.

trekfont: A fonts package

True (Trek) type fonts to style your Star Trek themed graphics text.
