Goofs

Arturis states at one point that it will take "several hours" for his vessel to reach its destination, a total of 10,000 light years away, yet it took the Dauntless 3 months to go 60,000 light years. Since the message regarding how far "Dauntless" had gone was fake, this is not inconsistent. See more »

Quotes

Seven of Nine: You were correct, Captain. My desire to remain in the Delta Quadrant was based on fear. I am no longer Borg, but the prospect of becoming human is... unsettling. I don't know where I belong.
Capt. Kathryn Janeway: You belong with us.

An excellent episode
25 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For me, this episode epitomised what Voyager could have been.

What made DS9, or even TNG in a limited way, intriguing was how what they did was permanent: they weren't warping off at the end of the day, leaving whatever problem behind. Voyager was king of this. Arturis is a tragic character, and there could have been some excellent episodes built off the premise of people trying to exact revenge on Voyager because of their actions, or even helping Voyager. The Hirogen almost did this, but it was only to ask FOR help. Not really the same.

And the initial concept is a very cool idea. The USS Dauntless was a great idea, but I'm glad it was an illusion. It was too quick a solution, but if it was real it could have changed or ended Voyager. Really their journey through the Delta Quadrant wasn't as decisive or as interesting as the producers and writers hoped.

So, fittingly, this episode brings Hope for the series, but also Fear.
