A creative way to increase your workforce.

When Chakotay, Kim and Neelix return to Voyager after a mission, they cannot find the ship at first. It's been hidden and heavily damaged--with the Doctor in command and all the crew gone! The Doctor explains what has transpired. Shortly after the three left for their mission, the ship struck a space mine that flooded the ship with radiation. The crew had to abandon ship or die. Then, ships came to scavenge Voyager but the Doctor (acting as Captain) was able to evade them until the three crewmen returned.

Here's the weird part. The crew were rescued and given drugs to destroy their old identities. Now they are workers at some giant refinery- type plant with no recollection of Voyager! So, it's up to the remaining crew to sneak onto this nasty planet and secret the crew back to Voyager and deprogram them. When the show ends, however, a mission to extract B'Elanna isn't going well. She doesn't want to go, the enemy attack Voyager AND Chakotay is about to be captured!!

All in all, a very exciting and original sort of show. I liked the idea of a race who will go to ANY length to get workers for its industries. My only complaint, and it's a very minor one, is that in Tuvak's flashbacks, what you see SHOULD be from his point of view but it isn't! Heck, you can even see HIM during these scenes.
