This is an intriguing episode. Of course, there is profound loneliness on the part of the crew. They face the possibility of never seeing their loved ones again. When a tiny wormhole is discovered, many possibilities rear their heads. It is discovered that the passageway is much too small for Voyager to get through. Now things get creative. When a connection is made with the other side, a Romulan, they believe they can send individual messages to their homes and loved ones. Then Torres finds a way to transport objects and potentially crew members. But not without pitfalls. We also get to embrace one of the best characters, the holographic Doc.
