Storyline

After finding a type of dilithium that can survive at a higher temperatures, Tom Paris comes up with the ingenious idea of attempting to cross the transwarp threshold in an attempt to find a way to get home faster. After a bumpy start and the help of Torres and Kim, they succeed in a holodeck simulation. When it is presented to Captain Janeway, she is impressed and gives them the go ahead to try it, but traveling faster than warp 10 has never before been attempted. The first run goes very well. Tom Paris manages to cross the warp threshold which means that the shuttle craft in which he is traveling exists simultaneously everywhere. But Tom then disappears and Harry is unable to find him anywhere within five parsecs. Tom somehow manages to return to Voyager through subspace, but there are unforeseen side-effects of his transwarp travel and Tom begins to mutate. The doctor tries to treat him with a type of radiation that will prohibit cell mutation, however this fails and Tom dies. To ... Written by Leila Reid (edited by Jeff L.)

Goofs

In the scene where Tom makes his first Warp 10 test flight in the shuttle, Tuvok announces his speed as Warp 9.9. He then states that the shuttle is exceeding Voyager's maximum speed. However, in the first episode of the series, Lt. Stadi establishes that Voyager has a maximum sustainable speed of Warp 9.975. Therefore, at Warp 9.9, Voyager could easily keep up with Tom and the shuttle. See more »

Part of me died
25 April 2013 | by (Perry, NY United States) – See all my reviews

this has to be the worst start trek episode OF ALL TIME.

what the f---? warp 10 makes you evolve? Paris mated with janeway? and it's all about tom Paris's emotional growth, starting from the angst of the privileged white male? "my father said i'd go far, all the kids pointed at me and said i'd do so much" boo hoo poor me.

how bad is the science? how often can people change shape and their entire body chemistry without effect?

a part of me has died.

the only good part was reading the review here that accurately and in detail reflects the awfulness. thanks for that.
