Storyline

A stable wormhole leading to Earth suddenly appears in Voyager's path. Everything seems perfect including sensor readings, transmissions from Starfleet, even letters from home promising warm welcomes and promotions. But Seven of Nine insists it's too good to be true and that the Captain should be cautious. When she seeks The Doctor's opinion he is deactivated. When she provides proof she is ordered to be put into stasis. She resists, unsuccessfully, and Voyager falls into a clever alien deception. Written by Meribor

Happy drifting towards oblivion.
26 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A wormhole appears in space near Voyager. Everyone is happy and they soon start receiving lots of messages from their loved ones in the Alpha Quadrant. There are two serious problems--Seven's examination of the wormhole indicates it's NOT real and the messages through the wormhole are TOO positive--so positive that it's like a lure pulling them to their deaths. However, no matter how hard Seven tries to let everyone know, the more they ignore her and try to shut her up. Eventually, the ship gets very close and the crew falls asleep--all but Naomi who is some freaky little kid who appears in way too many episodes. She then wakes ups Seven, Seven activates the Doctor and they save another being being sucked into the fake wormhole. Can the four of them save Voyager?

Overall this is a pretty good episode. It's a lot like a Venus Flytrap in space and the show is good despite its appearance of Naomi--and I hate cute kids on sci-fi shows!
