Three years ago, when Ensign Lyndsey Ballard died on an away mission, Voyager gave her a traditional burial in space. Her remains were recovered by the Kobali, a race that procreates by reanimating the corpses of other races and altering their DNA. When Lyndsey flees the Kobali and returns to Voyager, Janeway is skeptical but medical scans prove she is the real deal. While The Doctor can't make her human again, he alters her appearance to look like her old self and she tries to reintegrate herself with the crew. Also in this episode, Seven of Nine is frustrated to find the Borg children act more like children and less like Borg, despite her allotting 'fun' in their daily schedule. Written by Meribor

Did You Know?


Lyndsay has a habit of being late. In her nightmare after leaving the captain's quarters, she comes into the mess hall late, and the first thing said to her is "you're late." It turns out that it's her funeral. This is presumably a reference to the American expression, "late to one's own funeral" for people who are habitually tardy. See more »


When we first see Ensign Ballard, she fires on the ship pursuing her. The disabled ship grinds to a halt, instead of continuing to glide through the vacuum of space, as it should. See more »

Harry gets some action
13 April 2021 | by ansar-2See all my reviews

That's all I wanted to say.

Interesting episode. There's a race where Borg Queens are bred from the dead corpses of other races.

Oh and Harry get some action.
