Storyline

Voyager seeks to pass through the space of a psychic, territorial alien. Captain Janeway suffers delusions in the form of characters from her favorite holonovel appearing outside of the holodeck. The Doctor and Kes must find a way to stop the psychic attacks before the whole crew is disabled, lost in their own visions. Written by Meribor

Goofs

When Voyager is attacked by the Bothan, Janeway calls for Kes to join her on the bridge, and Kes acknowledges with "Right away." However, Kes never shows up; in fact, she never even leaves sickbay, as can be seen later. Although Janeway was influenced by the Bothan at the time of her call, she was not yet fully delusional, and nothing indicates that her communication with Kes was not genuine. See more »

Skip this one. You'll miss nothing of importance

This episode does nothing to advance the story, or to further develop or explore any of the characters. The ending leaves you with the question of "Just what the heck happened here?", and suggest no answers.

Something affects the crew with delusions of personal desires, and then just vanishes. And using Janeway's boring Romantic Fantasy holo-novel as a springboard to further the story was like rubbing salt into a wound.

Jeri Taylor (writer) must have been having an off-day, or someone found one of her discarded script drafts and used it.

A 45 min infomercial for some Ronco product, starring our hero's, would be just as entertaining.
