An accidental attack
20 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The crew of Voyager find the wreckage of a ship and are surprised to find that it was destroyed by a Cardassian weapon. It had been captured by the Maquis and reprogrammed to attack a Cardassian target however before reaching its target it was lost in the Badlands. At the time they assumed it was destroyed but now it is apparent that it was brought to the Delta Quadrant by the same array that brought Voyager and the Maquis ship there in the opening episode. Luckily the person who reprogrammed the weapon is B'Elanna Torres, so if anybody can deactivate it she can... unfortunately though she only has a limited time to do it as the weapon has found a planet that resembles its original target, a planet with several million inhabitants. At first B'Elanna thinks she has successfully deactivated it but hadn't counted on the efficiency of her own programming when it reactivates assuming that she must have been coerced by the Cardassians. As she struggles to stop the attack it looks as if she may have to sacrifice herself to protect an alien culture from the weapon she launched.

This was a decent episode centred on B'Elanna, Roxann Dawson did a good job in that role and as the voice of the weapon. As the weapon got closer to the target the tension raised nicely. While there wasn't any real doubt that she would succeed it was unclear just how the planet would be saved until the final few minutes.
