Storyline

Crash-landed on an alien planet while scouting for dilithium, B'Elanna Torres finds herself held captive by Kelis, a poet who believes her an "Eternal" sent from Heaven to be his muse. As she lay unconscious for days from injuries, he took her logs and fashioned a Greek-like play entitled "The Away Mission of B'Elanna Torres," which his starving acting troupe performed before a leader patron who wants to see more (in a week). B'Elanna strikes a deal: if he will retrieve some 'winter's tears' (dilithium), she will relay more stories about "Shining Voyager, Far From Home." Written by statmanjeff

Underrated episode
25 April 2018 | by zondazombieSee all my reviews

This episode is underrated! It is funny and entertaining, while also being clever and resolved. It has serious undertones, showing how inspiring Star Trek really is, and the good messages it inspires, but within a simulacrum that is so ridiculous it's hilarious.
