The Doctor: We're trying to find our friends.
Quarren Ambassador: Most of your friends have excellent positions in the Central Power Facility in the capitol. Why would any of them want to travel thousands of light-years to a planet on the other side of the galaxy when they have safe, comfortable lives right here?
Chakotay: Because it isn't their home.
Quarren Ambassador: I suggest you look elsewhere to increase your labor supply.

Economic slavery in a paranoid thriller
9 August 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

Most of the Voyager crew find themselves living alternate lives working at a power station on a strange planet.

This is a very interesting concept that made me think how people's lives can defined by the jobs they do and role the economy plays in trapping people into lives they might otherwise not lead.

The above is presented in a pretty entertaining and thrilling two part conspiracy story. Part 1 establishes what everyone is doing and how they got they got into the situation and sets things up nicely for part two.

Everything that happens with each character makes sense. It's great how you see the personality traits of some coming out in their current situation. Tom Paris for example is still the same Tom Paris, but without the stimulus of his Voyager adventures and stability of married life you see he's initially back in self destruct mode before someone similar to Janeway takes him in.

The episode's theme continues on board Voyager where The Doctor is in Emergency Command Hologram with another opportunity to command the ship. Does he identify with this more than his intended program?

What about Kathryn Janeway? Is she happier in her new life? If the opportunity comes to return to Voyager will she actually take it?

This one has a lot of intrigue and strong performances. So much so it was the first two part episode in the series that hooked me enough to watch them back to back.
