Storyline

The Voyager crew is the victim of identity theft. A clever trio of con artists claiming to be Janeway, Chakotay, and Tuvok are making trades all over the quadrant and giving Voyager a bad name. When they skip out on the bill, the collectors demand payment from the real Voyager. Once Janeway has her doppelganger in custody, Neelix 'accidently' lets her escape, allowing the real Captain to run her own double-cross. Written by Meribor

Goofs

Once again, the universal translator doesn't always work. When Paris and Neelix encounter the con artists in the cave, the translator immediately allows them to communicate -- but when Mobar begins chanting, the translator, for some reason, doesn't let them know that he's merely speaking random syllables with no real meaning.

A space sting
23 July 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

A group of space grifters look to sting everyone they encounter whilst posing as members of Voyager.

This episode has a fairly simple plot with themes about the mentality of the scammers and the scammed. It isn't deep enough to really make you think about anything other than whether or not it is trying to be Voyager's answer to the Harry Mudd episodes of the original series.

There are some enjoyable moments with the Voyager crew dealing with what feels like a pretty harmless antagonist, but Janeway's dialogue makes her sound pretty arrogant at times which unfortunately is my standout memory.
