Did You Know?


The rifles that the Ilari guards in the Imperial Hall are armed with were reuses of Jem'Hadar rifles from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Kes, while possessed by Tieran, carries a pistol prop from the weapons display in James T. Kirk's cabin in Star Trek Generations. See more »


In the firefight in Transporter Room One, Tieran (in Kes' body) and his followers shoot the Ilarii representative and Ensign Martin, killing both. For some reason, none of them think to shoot Janeway, either when she's grappling with Tieran/Kes or when she's been rendered unconscious. See more »


Tieran: [to Kes] Wouldn't it be wiser to join me? To take advantage of all I have to offer? You may find that you enjoy having power. I assure you, it is the finest aphrodisiac there is.

The Old Inhabiting of a Body
24 August 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This use of a body invading entity has been done to death. How many times did someone on Kirk's ship get taken over. How would this be done? So we just accept some scientific gobbledegook. Is there anything in our experience that would ever make this a possible reality? Here, Kes gets to be a warlord by the dead one inhabiting her body. She does a very good acting job. I appreciated the facial expressions and the body language. The problem for me is that the whole thing was just very dull.
