Decent but overly sentimental at times.
13 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In this episode of "Star Trek: Voyager", Joel Grey plays a crazy old guy who mistakes Janeway for his lost daughter. It all begins with a misguided covert mission on some crappy planet ruled by the Mokra- -some paranoid nasties. I say that the mission is misguided because the away team consists of a black Vulcan, a half-Klingon, the Captain and Neelix! Traveling in cognito certainly is NOT their style and it's no surprise that Mokra soldiers descend upon them. Tuvok and Torres are captured---Neelix escapes back to the ship and Janeway is rescued by Caylem (Grey).

For much of the show, Chakotay is back on the ship trying to negotiate with the local authorities. Oddly, the boss-man on the planet seems nice and accommodating--and Neelix is sure it's a trap, as the Mokra are big dumb jerk-faces. Eventually, Neelix's optimism is shown to be sound and the Mokra start taking shots at Voyager. Fortunately, Harry Kim pulls a solution out of his butt (this sort of miraculous way out happens an awful lot on this show).

In the meantime, the Captain finds some local resistance folk and they sneak into the prison surprisingly easily in order to rescue her two crew members. Then there's a showdown and Caylem bites it.

This isn't a bad episode. While it also isn't good, so many bad episodes were made during season two that a mediocre one like this is a bright spot! On the positive side, the Mokra are interesting enemies and it's nice to see Mr. Grey, as he's a fine actor. On the negative, Kim's solution is very contrived as is the rescue at the prison.
