Did You Know?


This takes place in 2377. See more »


According to Star Trek chronology, the Dominion and the Jem'Hadar were introduced in late 2370 (original air date on TV: 1994-06-12). Voyager was launched a year later, in 2371 (OAD 1995-01-16). It is therefore not impossible that the holo-database the Hirogen got from Voyager already had information on the Jem'Hadar. See more »


Kejal: The Hirogen used your program as a template to create us.
Iden: Your ability to rise above your programing has been an inspiration. You're part of who we are.
The Doctor: And what are you? Besides a handful of thugs roaming the quadrant looking for a fight!

How do you kill a hologram? Use holographic bullets or holographic Pokemon?!
7 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, Voyager comes upon a scene of utter stupidity. The fierce Hirogen have decided to 'improve upon' the holo emitters the Captain gave them in the previous season. Janeway's intentions were to allow the Hirogens to exercise their strong needs to hunt without killing real creatures. However, the Hirogen decided to make their prey more interesting--tougher, meaner, smarter. Unfortunately, these holo Alpha Quadrant characters of all sorts were now too good and they ended up wiping out almost all the Hirogen in that training facility. And, these holo characters have all left the facility and have headed into space!! Janeway feels a responsibility to stop these holos, but the Hirogen are inexplicably intent on 'doing it themselves'--even when it's obvious to anyone with more than half a brain that they are hopelessly outclassed.

When it comes to Voyager trying to deal with the holos, they've got more problems than just the dumb Hirogen. The Doctor bonds too quickly with the killer holos and starts to over-identify with them. As a result, he's become more of a liability than an asset. And so ends part one.

This is a pretty exciting episode. The Hirogens sure are dumb but it's nice to see the Captain showing some gumption with them! The only problem I saw was HOW do you stop a hologram?!
