Trivia

This installment is the third in what is known to some fans as the "trilogy of terror", three consecutive episodes that are often considered to be remarkably bad (the other two episodes being "Darkling" and "Rise"). See more »

Goofs

No one says 'cancel red alert' (or anything to that effect). Voyager returns to normal status on its own as soon as Tuvok says the Nasari ship is moving away. See more »

Sirens...outer space style.
19 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, Voyager is making contact with a new race. Despite this new ship having its shields down, Ensign Kim reacts and on his own attacks the ship! Naturally, the Captain is not pleased and they're having a space battle thanks to Mr. Kim....or so it seemed. Later, they're able to determine it was a trap and Kim was right. However, Harry starts acting strange in other ways--and he's slowly evolving! Soon the ship is being hailed from a planet--and they welcome back one of their own, Harry Kim!! According to these people, they've spread their seed far and wide across the galaxy and Harry's mother on Earth was impregnated by these aliens--and his genetic code has brought him home. When the Doctor examines Harry, this would seem to be true with his DNA--and Harry beams down to a planet filled mostly with hot women--and they really, really want Harry! Has his luck turned? Is he really home?!

This is an interesting episode that reminds me of sirens as well as birds like the cuckoo (who lay eggs in OTHER birds' nests and when they hatch they dispossess the rest of the eggs). It is very interesting and very sneaky. Worth seeing.
