While Janeway is visiting her da Vinci holodeck program, Voyager is mugged by transporter. They steal everything from the main computer core, to the emergency rations, even the dirty laundry! They track the property to a trade outpost. When they take a team to recover the gear, Janeway is shocked to find her holodeck character da Vinci (guest star John Rhys-Davies) - wearing The Doctor's mobile emitter living there. He believes it is America, and tells her he has been hired by the Prince as an inventor. With da Vinci's help, she gets the computer back, but the 'Prince' and his men chase them into the hills, where da Vinci's newest invention awaits to help them fly away. Written by Meribor

Kinda dumb.....Janeway hangs out with DaVinci.
21 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, a group of small spacecraft buzz around Voyager and uses beams to steal various stuff from the ship. I was confused by this, as normally on the show, you CAN'T beam things through the shields. Regardless, some of the stuff is very important--such as the Doctor's mobile emitter (which allows him to leave the sick bay) and the ship's computer! So Janeway and Tuvok beam down to a nearby planet to see if they can find any traces of their stuff.

Up until this point, the show is pretty good. However, once on the planet it gets pretty dumb. Apparently the mobile emitter is being used by Leonardo DaVinci--the version that came from the holodeck! He apparently works for the guy responsible for the thefts. So, he and Janeway go on an adventure together to save the day.

The idea of DaVinci running about with Janeway is amazingly dumb and a bit embarrassing. John Rhys-Davies is kind of fun in the role and hams it up good. But the whole pairing is just insane and the escape using DaVinci's flying machine made me cringe. There are also some odd inconsistencies--things that just don't make a lot of sense. Why do the Voyager crew try not take back everything that was stolen? Why not punish them or at least make it so they cannot keep attacking and stealing from passing ships? And, most importantly, why take time out from running away from the baddies to dialog with DaVinci? Couldn't you just do this LATER on the ship?! Overall, a very weak show--one that seems like the writers were low on ideas.
