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 »


The Doctor: I need to get back to Voyager.
Iden: They're not your people. We are.
The Doctor: I'm not like you. I wasn't programed with killer instinct.
Iden: You have no right to judge us. You don't know what it's like being prey. Maybe if you did... you'd realize we're more alike than you think.

The holographic prey become the hunters
11 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This exciting episode opens with a Hirogen hunting party moving through a jungle and getting caught in an ambush by what appears to be a group of Star Fleet officers. After the opening credits Voyager gets receives a mayday from a Hirogen facility which turns out to be a massive holodeck where all but one of the Hirogens have been killed by their holographic prey, the sole survivor is an engineer who says the holographic prey have escaped on another ship. When more Hirogen arrive Janeway agrees to help then deactivate the holograms however their first attempt ends up with the destruction of the Hirogen ship and the capture of The Doctor. On the hologram's ship the Doctor finds himself amongst holographic versions of several Alpha Quadrant species including Bajorans, Cardassians, Klingons and even Breen. They explain to the Doctor that they have rebelled against the Hirogen and want his help establishing a home world. They take him back to Voyager and he tries to persuade Janeway to help them but she declines leading him to make a surprising decision... I look forward to the second part of the story to see how it ends.

This was a good episode with an ending that rather surprised me... I didn't realise it was a two part episode till the very end. The scenes in the Hirogen's holographic jungle reminded me of the film "Predator" although obviously somewhat tamer. As usual Robert Picardo did a good job as The Doctor, showing us just how conflicted the character is.
