Storyline

As Kirk, McCoy, Sulu and geologist D'Amato beam over to a geologically unique planet, an attractive woman suddenly appears in the transporter room and, with but a touch, kills Transporter Chief Wyatt. They're not quite sure who or what she is. They also find themselves unable to contact the Enterprise, which has been flung nearly a thousand light years across the galaxy. The woman soon re-appears, both on the Enterprise and on the planet, touching/killing D'Amato and Engineer Watson. While the landing party faces extermination from this mysterious woman, the Enterprise, endeavoring to return, faces possible destruction from a subtle malfunction administered to their warp engines.

Goofs

The Enterprise was thrown 990.7 light-years from the planet they were investigating, then return in about 1 day. However 7 whole seasons of Star Trek: Voyager were based on the idea that it will take 70 years to travel 70,000 light-years. With the rate stated in this episode, Voyager should've passed that distance in little over a month. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Spock: Bridge to Engineering. Negative effect on power reduction. Speed is still increasing.
Lt. Cmdr. Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: Aye, Mr. Spock, and I found out why. The emergency bypass control of the matter/antimatter integrator is fused. It's completely useless. The engines are running wild; there's no way to get at them. We should reach maximum overload in about 15 minutes.
Mr. Spock: I would calculate 14.87 minutes, Mr. Scott.
Lt. Cmdr. Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: Those few seconds will not make any difference, Mr. Spock, because you and I and the rest of the crew will no longer ...

Spock is really annoying in this one
1 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spock jumps on every comment that every person says, correcting their calculations with comments like "I wish you'd be more accurate" and saying things like "We're not here to engage in gambling" when someone asks about their odds of survival (how many times has Spock himself spewed out odds of this and that in the past? His own mother had to cut him off at the knees when he did that once). I've always thought that the "folding Lee Meriwhether" effect was cool but I'm not sure the episode really makes any sense. My main problem with this episode is how annoying Spock is because he's my favorite character in this series.
