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

Back from the dead
16 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A strong, character-driven episode in the best sense.

Lyndsay Ballard's struggles with her identity are both philosophically interesting and genuinely compelling - and her father's pleas for her return are portrayed sympathetically and understandably. Voyager's setting is a good backdrop for thought experiments - and this episode is presents the problem of identity after death effectively and succinctly.

In addition, Lyndsay's character design and the characteristics of her species are some of the most memorable and unique of the alien races encountered in Voyager.

Harry Kim also comes out of this episode well, with attention given to his emotional development.

We also see the beginnings of the Borg children's adaptation to life on Voyager. Seven's concept of 'fun' is amusing.
