A superior episode
12 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is such a gem. Ensign Kim discovers a wormhole and its discovery raises the hopes of the crew that they will be able to return home assuming the wormhole leads to the Alpha Quadrant. The good news is that the hole does indeed lead to the Alpha Quadrant; the bad news is that it is way too small for the Voyager to get through. The pace of this story is terrific – B'Elanna Torres thinks she knows a way to transport the crew to the Romulan science ship at the other end of the wormhole. Will it succeed? Even though we know it is unlikely to succeed since there will be about another 165 episodes, the writers had us almost believing it. Then the crew's hope is that they can convey messages to their families and friends through the wormhole and that the captain of the science ship will deliver them. We're left with a kind of lady or the tiger ending. I often prefer the secondary story lines to the main storyline. And this one is exceptional – Kes speaks to Captain Janeway on the Doctor's behalf; the crew are treating him badly by not even acknowledging his presence. The captain is somewhat surprised but promises to look into it. Kes and the Doctor are my favorite characters so any episodes that feature them prominently are usually winners. So main story and secondary storyline are both good which makes this a superior episode.
