As Tom and Harry run an episode of their "Captain Proton" holodeck program, Voyager gets caught in a layer of subspace. This 'subspace sand bar, as they nickname it, is home to a race of photonic aliens that aren't able to detect Voyager or its carbon based life forms (e.g. humans). Instead, they transport onto the holodeck and thereby start a war with Dr. Chaotica's Army of Evil. When Voyager detects internal weapons fire on the holodeck, Capt. Janeway dispatches Tom and Tuvok to investigate, and the adventure begins. Written by Leila Reid

Stupid but kind of fun...
26 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Bride of Chaotica" is a dumb episode...but it works because it never tries to be anything but cheesy and dumb! It begins as several other episodes have begun--with Paris and Kim in the holodeck playing Captain Proton! However, after they leave to go back to work, something totally unforeseen happens--the holodeck remains on and subspace beings enter it. Unfortunately, these beings think that the evil Dr. Chaotica is real and begin an all-out war against this holo-menace! In the process, they disable Voyager and it's up to Paris, Kim and the Captain to enter the holo program and straighten all this out.

To call this episode anything other than silly old fashioned fun would be difficult. Obviously the show was based on the old Flash Gordon serials and it's clearly a homage to these old serials. Well worth seeing.
