Did You Know?


B'Elanna Torres actress Roxann Dawson did not find this episode a comfortable experience. She cited this as the worst episode she ever took part in, due to the fact that her pet dog died during filming, and all she had to do for that week, while grieving, was lie on a bio-bed. See more »


In sickbay, when the Doctor discusses B'Elanna's attitude towards Cardassians with her, B'Elanna's eyebrows are missing. See more »


Tom Paris: [to Torres, who is paralyzed with an alien on her chest] I just think, I could force you to listen to rock 'n roll all day and you wouldn't be able to do a thing about it.

I don't quite understand the moral quandary
25 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Lt. Torres is attacked by a giant green slug-like creature. It sends its tendrils into her body and they are inextricably linked-- so much so that the Doctor cannot remove the creature without killing B'Elanna. However, some Cardassian doctor has done some research and his work might help them remove the creature. So, the Doctor has a holographic Dr. Moset consult with him. However, apparently Moset is some sort of Cardassian war criminal and Maquis members on the crew and Tuvok object to the Doctor consulting with the Moset hologram.

I didn't really understand why this was such a HUGE problem. Had the ship brought the real Dr. Moset aboard to treat B'Elanna, I could easily understand the concerns. Heck, in this case I'd even like it if they shot him in the face. But it's NOT this man--it's a hologram. Despite this, the episode is moderately interesting and it is worth seeing.
