Mistaken Identity
13 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Desperately low on a chemical needed to operate the warp core an away team is sent to acquire some on a nearby planet. The problem is the planet is run by an oppressive regime which does not like strangers. During the deal the away team is discovered by local authorities, Tuvok and B'Ellana are captured, Janeway is wounded but saved by a local man and only Neelix manages to escape, luckily he has the needed chemical so Voyager can restart her engines at least. When Janeway awakens she learns that the man who rescued her thinks that she is his daughter even though she is clearly a different species. She learns that his wife is in custody and that he is desperate to break her out. As she is being held at the same facility as Tuvok and B'Ellana she agrees to help him. During the break in they are caught and the leader of the security forces mocks him telling him that is wife and daughter died many years before. As he lies dying Janeway tells him that it was a lie and acts out the part of his daughter so he can die content.

This was a reasonable episode; Joel Grey did a decent job as Caylem, the old man, and the scenes between him and Janeway were quite touching. The story itself was okay but not one of the best Voyager episodes; we didn't see anything of the planet apart from a few crowded alleyways which made it as though it was all done on the cheap.
