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

Seven and Naomi save the day
5 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It looks like Voyager may be getting home a lot sooner than expected when they come across a worm hole which appears to lead straight to Earth. Almost of the crew are elated, and this grows as they start to get messages from the other side... things couldn't be better the messages are all good news; the Maquis have been pardoned and even offered plum jobs, Tom has been offered a job as a test pilot and Neelix has been invited to be an ambassador. Only two members of the crew don't seem happy with the situation are Seven of Nine, who has no desire to go to Earth and believes things are far too good to be true, and Naomi Wildman who has had no home apart from Voyager so has no wish to get to Earth. Seven asks the Doctor to investigate whether or not the crew are being manipulated but when she returns to ask how he is getting on she finds that he is off line because the crew received a message saying the wormhole might damage him. She finds that there is another ship in the wormhole and talks to its captain who warns her that it is a trap. Soon after Seven is advised that she must go into stasis as it may effect her Borg implants. She resists and with the help of young Naomi Wildman manages help Seven maintain a force field long enough for her transport to Engineering. Unfortunately Capt. Janeway finds a way to stun her and takes Voyager into what the crew believe is a worm hole but clearly is something quite different. Once inside the crew is rendered unconscious but imagines getting to Earth. Naomi is unaffected and goes to engineering to find Seven. She then activates the Doctor and contacts the alien who is also trapped; it turns out he has been hunting a huge creature for years but was tricked into thinking he could defeat it by the creature's ability to telepathically effect anybody nearby and lure them in and devour the; as Naomi says. "like a pitcher plant catching insects". Together they must find a way to escape before they too become food.

Jeri Ryan does well taking the lead in this story as Seven and is ably supported by Scarlett Pomers as Naomi, Robert Picardo as the Doctor and guest star William Morgan Sheppard who played the Capt. Ahab like alien who lives to hunt down the creature... his similarity to Herman Melville's character was apparent long before The Doctor made a comment about it.
