Creative and weird....
21 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, crew members are all having very strange dreams. This is pretty weird. But what is alarming is ALL of the dreams culminate with the same alien showing up in it unexpectedly! Obviously, some race is reaching out to the crew from their dreams. This is a nice first contact situation, right? Nope. Some of the people WON'T awaken and soon everybody on the ship falls asleep en masse. It clearly is because this alien and his people are taking over the ship. The only hope is Chakotay who has sent himself to sleep deliberately and is using some American Indian mumbo-jumbo magic to control his dreams. Can Chakotay be the crew's savior or not?

If you can ignore the mumbo-jumbo aspect, this is a dandy episode with a super-creative sort of threat. Well worth seeing...even if you don't have a wind-catcher or peyote to help in your enjoyment.
