A "spatial scission" causes Voyager to be duplicated. One of the Voyagers is under heavy attack from the Vidiians while the other remains impervious. Both Captain Janeways work together and agree to sacrifice one ship to save the other. Before self-sacrifice, the doomed Voyager sends it's version of Ensign Kim and newborn Naomi Wildman to the other ship to replace the Kim that was killed in the attack and the baby who died from complications shortly after birth.

Janeway mentions that she heard about a similar experimental duplication in the academy, but scientist could duplicate only matter, not antimatter. B'Elanna completes, that in this case the antimatter in the warp core is not duplicated, so the problem is that both ships try to gain power from the same warp core antimatter. It is known that Voyager's self destruct mechanism actually overloads the warp core. So in case of self destruct, both ships should have been destroyed because of the shared warp core. See more »

Two Voyagers!
26 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As this episode opens Ensign Wildman is goes into labour and while she is giving birth Voyager comes across several Vidiian ships, in order to avoid detection the head through a plasma cloud but as the exit it something strange happens which causes a ship wide power drain just. Due to complications the Doctor has to beam the baby out of Ensign Wildman. Things start going even worse just before B'Elanna starts a process that should restart the warp drive. As systems across the ship start to fail the baby dies and while trying to repair a hull breach Harry is killed and another engineering officer is injured. Kes is sent to Engineering to treat him but just as she is bout to reach him B'Elanna sees her disappear. We soon learn that Voyager was somehow duplicated as it passed through the cloud, one is severely damaged but the other is fine. The people on the good ship realise that when a second Kes turns up and work to find a way to get in touch with the second ship. Attempts to recombine the ships fail and as it looks as if they will both be lost it is decided that the only way to save one of the ships is to destroy the other. As one is heavily damaged the captain of that one decides to make the sacrifice but before she can do anything the Vidiians attack, they enter the good ship and it turns out that this is the ship which must be sacrificed but not before its Harry can go back with the baby to replace those that had died.

This was a better episode that had a surprisingly bleak start; I certainly didn't expect to see the death of a baby and a main character on an episode of Star Trek, even if they did find a way for them to be back by the end of the episode. I was also rather surprised when it was the heavily damaged ship that was ultimately saved meaning that as the episode concluded they still had a lot of work to do. It was rather fun watching two Captain Janeways arguing about what should be done to solve the problem. While it might be seen as a cop out for Harry and the baby to escape the doomed ship to replace those lost I think it was the right thing as Harry is a good character and the baby will grow to be the least annoying Star Trek child.
