The Voyager crew is the victim of identity theft. A clever trio of con artists claiming to be Janeway, Chakotay, and Tuvok are making trades all over the quadrant and giving Voyager a bad name. When they skip out on the bill, the collectors demand payment from the real Voyager. Once Janeway has her doppelganger in custody, Neelix 'accidently' lets her escape, allowing the real Captain run her own double-cross. Written by Meribor

Once again, the universal translator doesn't always work. When Paris and Neelix encounter the con artists in the cave, the translator immediately allows them to communicate--but when Mobar begins chanting, the translator, for some reason, doesn't let them know that he's merely speaking random syllables with no real meaning.

Grifting through space...
2 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, two folks who look a bit like Janeway and Tuvok land on a planet and cheat some people badly. Not surprisingly, these people are furious and think that the real Janeway and Tuvok have done this! So, when these same people approach the real Janeway and demand satisfaction. Fortunately, the crew is able to put together the pieces and find these jerks posing as Starfleet officers! It seems that in addition to posing as Starfleet, these same jerk-faces posed as holy people some time ago and apparently ALSO cheated Neelix. During this encounter, they learned all about Voyager--and this set the evil plan to impersonate them in motion. However, the faux Federation crew doesn't stop here. They then offer various races the opportunity to join the Federation and receive protection from them...for a price!

This is a very funny episode and a nice change of pace. It seems that a couple times a year they made a humorous episode as a change of pace and most of them worked very well. This one is especially good.
