Storyline

Harry Kim and B'Elanna Torres take the Delta Flyer in search of dilithium. They crash on a pre-warp planet and B'Elanna is found by a local, Kelis the Poet. He believes she is 'an eternal,' a superior being sent from Heaven. He writes plays, 'The Voyager Travels,' based off of her logs which he performs with his acting troupe. 8 days after the crash, B'Elanna awakens, bound and injured. Kelis informs her she is his muse, but he needs more stories to put on or his 'patron' will let them starve. B'Elanna makes an offer: Kelis the Poet will retrieve some 'winter's tears' (dilithium) and she'll tell him more about 'Shining Voyager, Far From Home.' Written by Meribor

Goofs

The Poet writes a note to be handed off to B'Elanna. Although her universal translator is what makes the alien's language understandable, there is no reason to believe that she should be capable of reading their written language. See more »

Voyager Meets Sophocles
8 May 2007 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

The episode starts at an outdoor theatre on a planet resembling Ancient Greece. We see the inhabitants performing a play about B'Elanna Torres in the Delta Flyer crashing on their planet. We find out the play's writer has found B'Elanna and the crashed Delta Flyer. He has mistaken her for an "Eternal" a celestial being similar to the Greek Gods. He agrees to help B'Elanna try to repair the Flyer in return for more information for his next play.

This is a neat episode that shows what a Voyager episode would look like if performed in an amphitheatre. True Trek fans will notice John Schuck (the Kingon Ambassador from the Trek movies 4 & 6), though you have to go by his voice since he's not a Kingon here.

Also featured is actress Kellie Waymire who is probably most notably known by in the Trek World as Crewmen Cutler from Enterprise and non-Trek fans from the HBO show Six Feet Under and several other TV & Movie appearances before her untimely death in November of 2003 at age 36.

A good episode and a glimpse into a career cut far too short.
