Storyline

Tom Paris and Harry Kim are wrongly convicted of a terrorist bombing. Even though Janeway captures the true criminals, Tom and Harry are fitted with strange brain implants and imprisoned on a satellite. In the prison, the inmates have no supervision, no medical care, and all have implants which increase their aggressive tendencies. New prisoners and food-rations are delivered through a one-way chute. As days pass, the friends try to hold on to reality but find themselves turning on one another and taking drastic measures to survive and attempt escape. Written by Meribor

Ambassador Liria: Perhaps you've misunderstood me. Let me clarify our position: your vessel is being impounded; you and your crew are under arrest. Prepare to be boarded!

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'd like to resolve this situation peacefully, Ambassador, but let me clarify my position: I will not allow this ship to be boarded.
Ambassador Liria: That, Captain, is an error in judgment.

Great Parallel!
21 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode a lot! But in a lot ways it hit close to home. I felt like it paralleled different ethnic groups in the modern era. The easiest way to control a group of people is to turn them against themselves. That's what was occurring in the prison. Star Trek is great at taking everyday life themes And secretly transporting them into the show, disguising them as Something else but in actuality they represent a much deeper aspect of Our own society that can sometimes be hard to look at otherwise. I wasn't a big Harry Kim fan but my favorite scene of the episode was when Ensign Kim pleaded with the prison inmates to work together to attain their freedom but none of them listened to him. Great Parallel! So true!
