Well I guess they're all going to die in this one....
12 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I've always thought that episodes of the Star Trek franchises that were confined to the ship were among the worst. After all, they often had no aliens and the crew was very, very limited in what they could do to breathe life into the scripts. This is definitely such a case.

When the show begins, many of the crew members are in a holodeck having a surprise party for Kes. One thing that occurs is predictable--one isn't. Neelix once again shows extreme jealousy of her and acts a bit like a jealous and controlling boyfriend. What is surprising is that when they try to leave the program to return to duty or their quarters, the crew cannot find their way! The ship keeps changing as if it's messing with them. And, their attempts to stop it only make it worse.

Apart from the very end (which I liked), this is not a particularly inspired program. It's not terrible but slow and uninteresting until the end.
