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

Did You Know?


Except for the final scene, the entire episode takes place on the biomimetic copy of Voyager. See more »


At the end of this episode, Captain Janeway says, "Mr. Paris, resume course." To which Ensign 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 »

Terrible (split into spoiler and non-spoiler parts)
1 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Non-Spoiler: I had to create an account just to let everyone know that this episode is terrible by terrible I mean the worst in the series. If you have an affinity for lack of continuity and plot holes so big your brain will ooze out the side of your head than by all means watch and waste 43 minutes of your life.

Sort of spoiler below: You can skip this one safely because the writers made sure that it will not affect anything ever because the episode was totally pointless. (and this is why I checked the spoiler box because I didn't give away anything that happened in the show but you'll be able to tell where it is going about half way through due to my comments).

I wish someone would have warned me but no one on here did. You've been warned so at least maybe now you might enjoy it slightly more knowing you are about to waste 43 minutes of your life for no plot or character development whatsoever. If you do intend to watch it but I don't recommend it.

Total sarcastic spoiler: People that think this episode is good their brains are demolecularizing into biometal compounds because they were duplicated months before but simply "forgot" about all that and will come to a tragic--stupid--end for no other reason than to clear up the utterly creepy idea of having a duplicate of yourself living on a demon planet from one of the other worst episodes on voyager.
