Episode cast overview:
Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres (as Roxann Biggs-Dawson)


Members of the Voyager crew clandestinely participate in a hidden holodeck program where the ship's Maquis members stage an insurrection. Word gets out and Tuvok confesses to writing the program as a training guide for security officers but never finished it because the merged crew seemed to be working well together. When Tuvok and Paris get trapped in the program, they realize that former crew mate and Cardassian spy Seska had added her own twist to the story. Written by Meribor

1st 2/3 or so is good, the final 1/3 is garbage.
20 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Among the characters to have been on "Star Trek: Voyager", one of the most tiresome and annoying was Seska. The concept of a Cardassian undercover agent who is only out for herself is pretty neat and could have worked. But this character became overused and downright hateful to see after a while. Too often, Voyager crew members were in a position to kill her (and this is the only logical way to deal with her) but let her live JUST SO SHE COULD RETURN IN A FUTURE EPISODE. Then, in the first episode of season 3, she died...and fans rejoiced. However, here she is back again--yes, a dead person returns. This time she's a holo-program that manages to take over the ship and threatens to blow it up!! Talk about contrived.

It's all sad, as up until then, the show wasn't bad at all. The idea of a program hidden within the computer that simulates a Maquis takeover is pretty interesting--especially when the program is discovered and crew find it exciting to play in it for laughs. But to bring in Seksa AND to give her such powers?! This is utter crap.
