Storyline

Three years ago, when Ensign Lyndsey Ballard died on an away mission, Voyager gave her a traditional burial in space. Her remains were recovered by the Kobali, a race that procreates by reanimating the corpses of other races and altering their DNA. When Lyndsey flees the Kobali and returns to Voyager, Janeway is skeptical but medical scans prove she is the real deal. While The Doctor can't make her human again, he alters her appearance to look like her old self and she tries to reintegrate herself with the crew. Also in this episode, Seven of Nine is frustrated to find the Borg children act more like children and less like Borg, despite her allotting 'fun' in their daily schedule. Written by Meribor

Trivia

The title refers to "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust", a phrase from the Anglican burial service, used sometimes to denote total finality. See more »

Goofs

When the twins Rebi and Azan explain to Seven that they have made cubes out of their clay, one of them mentions that they are one-one-thousandth the size of a Borg vessel. The cubes are clearly only a few inches square. One thousand times those dimensions would be only a few hundred feet, and one thousand times the volume would only be about 50 feet square, clearly much smaller than all Borg cubes seen in all Star Trek series. A more likely description would be one-ten-thousandth the size of the Borg cube. See more »

Seven of Nine has to deal with the new kids on the block.
2 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Apparently, three years before, Ensign Lyndsay Ballard (Kim Rhodes) died on a mission and her body was buried in space. Now, out of the blue, she returns to Voyager. However, she looks completely different--and it seems she's been through an odd ordeal. It seems some race brought her back to life and made her one of them--and she wants her old life instead. But she isn't exactly Ensign Ballard and her homecoming is less than perfect.

The other plot involves Seven of Nine playing nanny to the new Borg children on Voyager. While she can sing, she's no Frauline Maria and she is inflexible and lacks fun--things that make it hard to be with the kids. Can she learn to relax a bit and takes things less seriously or will she turn the kids back into drones?

This is a decent episode--well worth seeing. The best thing about it is the make-up, as the Ensign and other of her new kind are simply gorgeous and among the best looking aliens on any of the Trek shows.

By the way, if you are wondering, according to IMDb this is the only appearance of the Ensign Ballard character--so you didn't see her when she was supposedly on the ship three years earlier.
