Storyline

Ensign Kim wakes up to find himself in San Fransisco. Not only is he him, but it also appears as if he has never served on board Voyager. Instead he is engaged to his girlfriend Libby and about to unveil a new design for a Starfleet runabout. Since he doesn't remember anything about the design, he complains of feeling ill and takes his leave the meeting. After accessing the Starfleet database about Voyager, Kim goes to Marseilles to ask Tom Paris, who also apparently did not join the Voyager crew, for his help. Paris refuses, and when Kim returns home, he is questioned by Starfleet for his unauthorized look at Starfleet's records of Voyager. Kim finds out from Cosimo, an alien supposed to look after him, that his shuttle craft intersected a time stream that caused him to switch into a reality of his life had he never joined the Voyager crew. Warning that there was no certain way to get home, Cosimo tells Kim on the coordinates at which he could intersect the time stream again and ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Harry's role in the meeting with Starfleet brass, where he knows nothing of the runabout he is supposed to have designed, bears striking similarities to "The Actor's Nightmare," a short comedic play by Christopher Durang, in which a man is mistaken for the lead actor of a play and forced onstage without knowing any of his lines.

Goofs

The entire time Ensign Kim is running away from security, he has his communicator badge on and a security anklet. They should be able to lock on to either and beam him into a prison cell. In addition, there would be no need for security forces to respond at all. Simply add a program that call for beam out to a secure location as soon as the anklet is tampered with. See more »

Unfortunately Garret Wang cannot carry an episode
1 April 2020 | by brdavid-429-96270See all my reviews

This episode outright proves 1 of two things: 1)cannot give us a character that is interesting or 2) The writers cannot give us a character of Ensign Kim that is interesting. It is possible Wang is only working from the script and the director. However I don't think I want to lay blame on the writer and director when I see a story that could have been interesting, but turns out to be rather boring. Actually i blame both.

Non Sequitur is an episode that puts Ensign into a situation where it appears he is back in San Francisco with his girlfriend and back in Starfleet. He discovers that he was never assigned to Voyager and doesn't know what any of this means. The first thing Kim does is try to communicate with whomever he thinks is in control of this reality only to realize that everything seems to be real.

So would be the logical next step here? Well, Kim isn't in any danger, Kim isn't held hostage, Kim isn't hurt or injured or does any injury seem to be forthcoming to him. In seeing this, my first response to Kim was "why not just play along?". It was something that I honestly didn't understand why Kim decided to proceed as if he was in danger. Also Kim when he finds the Voyager logs classified, proceeds to enter his authorization code. If Kim suspected that he was still under alien influence entering that code was a large character error.

For an episode that could have explored the acting of Wang and character of Kim this episode falls very short. McNeill gave an interesting character but it all falls flat with a rather odd and typical Star Trek ending.

Can be skipped.
