Lieutenants Paris, Torres, and Durst are imprisoned by the Vidiians. In an attempt to develop a cure for the phage, a Vidiian doctor splits the bi-racial Torres into two people (one Klingon and one Human) because he believes Klingons are immune to the Phage. The two Torreses escape the prison compound, but the Klingon Torres is fatally injured protecting the Human Torres while the Human Torres cracks the Vidiiam computer to escape. Before her death, the Klingon Torres tells her Human half that showing courage makes her death honorable. The Doctor tells the Human Torres, who has contracted the Phage, that she will not survive unless he re-integrates her Klingon DNA. Written by Meribor

Did You Know?


By playing both Lt. Peter Durst and Sulan, Brian Markinson is the first of only two actors to play two different, completely unrelated characters in a single episode of "Star Trek". The other was Jeffrey Combs, playing both of his recurring characters - Weyoun and Brunt - in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Dogs of War (1999). See more »

I like the Vidiian episodes.
5 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

For the most part, the early episodes of "Star Trek: Voyager" are kind of dull. Too many non-corporeal entities, too many holodeck experiences and too few interesting enemies mar these shows. However, a bright spot are the Vidiian episodes, as these evil aliens are truly frightening. So, "Faces" is clearly one of the better shows of season one because it features these icky looking jerks.

When the show begins, an away team of three is kidnapped by the Vidiians. What they do with Torres is particularly interesting, as these sick creatures know a way to separate her Klingon and Human DNA and they now have two Lt. Torreses--one of each. Through the course of the show, Torres learns a lot about herself and learns to appreciate both halves of her--much like Kirk did in the old "Star Trek" show where he was separated in two by a transporter malfunction--creating a nasty and evil Kirk as well as a passive and wimpy one. The idea certainly isn't new but combined with the Vidiians, it makes for interesting viewing.

Two things to note: You get to see Roxann Dawson (Torres) without her make-up which is nice and you get to see another Talaxian--and he's even MORE annoying than Neelix!!
