Less than sweet dreams
28 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As the episode opens the crew are all having strange nightmares, which all have one thing in common, they each feature the same strange alien which is of a species non of them have encountered before. When they talk about their unpleasant dreams they realise there must be a cause. Some of the crew fail to wake up so Chakotay volunteers to go to sleep so that he can try to talk to the alien. In his dream he meets the alien again and learn that it is of a species which spends most of its time in a dream state. He is told that by the time Voyager has passed a certain planet they will be out of their space and free to go on their way. He wakes but learns it is a trap, when they get their the aliens board Voyager and take the crew prisoner. As they search for a way to escape Chakotay realises that he is still in a dream. He manages to wake himself again and finds that only himself and the Doctor are awake and everybody else is sharing the same dream. Even though he is exhausted he must struggle to stay awake until he can locate the aliens and somehow stop them holding the crew in their dreams.

This was a pretty good episode where for much of the time the viewer isn't sure whether what is happening is real or a dream, it is also amusing to learn that even Vulcans have dreams where they turn up to work undressed.
