Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres tie the knot. The enhanced warp drive is up and running and promises to deliver Voyager home in 2+ years. The honeymoon is put on hold when the new core radiation starts breaking down the molecular cohesion of the ship and it's crew. When B'Elanna dies, Tuvok and Chakotay realize everyone and everything are not the originals; they are the silver-blood copies left behind on the "Demon Class" planet ten months ago. As the crew continues to die, Chakotay tries to convince Janeway to return to the Demon planet, reminding her that Earth is not their home. Written by Meribor

Towards the end, Captain Janeway says, "Mr. Paris, resume course." To which Lt. Paris replies, "Aye, Sir." It was established early on in the series that Janeway is addressed by the crew as "Captain" or "Ma'am in a crunch." Paris would never intentionally address her as "Sir". See more »

Not bad at all really liked if but...
23 July 2014 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

OK so I've never written a review before but had to for this episode. Been playing Binge Watching on Netflix for almost 2 months now watching all seasons from the beginning. First in the opening wedding scene I couldn't help but to cry at the wedding, as sappy as that sounds. First I thought OK this is probably some holodeck program, they really never got married (I did watch all the episodes when they originally aired) but the fun is I don't remember them after 15 years. So when I found out they were replicas from the daemon planet the biggest issue I had was, when Voyager left I only remember seeing "the crew" and no ship. How did they get a ship? If they made it they would have remembered that and therefore would have known there origin. Next I think something everyone is overlooking is they may not have all been forgotten. They had 8 months of interactions with other species and encounters that the real VOY did not. What are the odds that the real Voyager never crossed paths with any of the species they did (they were 20 light years away OK) but someone one day would have said "we met you before" or heard stories, which the real voyager crew would have said "what not us??" Am I making sense? Anyway I really enjoyed this episode as I do almost all of them. And one more comment, this was not the only duplicate crew, How about the crew that THIS crew replaced in Season 2 Deadlock.
