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

At one point during his mutation, Tom removes his tongue, impairing his speech as a result. Yet when he asks the Doctor later to release him from sickbay, he clearly says "please". Without a tongue, he wouldn't be able to produce an 'L'. Also, his tongue can actually be seen on several occasions during that scene. See more »

Quotes

Tom Paris: I guess this whole experience has left me feeling a little overwhelmed. Flying at warp 10, evolving into a new life-form, mating, having alien offspring...
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You've broken more than one record, that's for sure.

Star Trek Meets 'The Fly'
17 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tom's eventual change into a slimy lizard like creature had all the hallmarks of the film 'The Fly'.

Bits of Tom start falling off with a real Jeff Goldblum moment when his tongue detaches and he gives a confused yet almost cynical grin to the crew.

After kidnapping Janeway (a la Jeff and Geena) he mates with her (unseen) and this produces some offspring (although the whole process only takes a few hours) on a jungle like planet.

But unlike 'The Fly' the offspring look cute (well anything would compared to a maggot).

Perhaps in some future episode or film the Federation will return to the planet to check on progress. Maybe the lizards will have built their first rudimentary Warp core by then.

Yep it was that bad.
