Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 24 - Demon

Tom Paris and Harry Kim take a shuttlecraft down to an extremely inhospitable planet to obtain fuel. In the course of this mission exact duplicates of the crew are created by a substance found on the planet's surface. Then, after the duplicates are beamed aboard, they suffocate because they aren't breathing the planet's gases, and The Doctor is called in. After examination, The Doctor (unaware that they are clones) tells the duplicates that "the planet has adapted you," in a process the exact opposite of terraforming. After a study, Torres discovers the reason behind the duplicates - when the substance covers her finger, she brings it back to the table, forming an exact duplicate of her finger. Then, Chakotay, Seven, and the Kim duplicate beam to the planet's surface (with Chakotay and Seven in suits) and find the real Paris and Kim. Chakotay requests all five beam up, but the Kim duplicate runs away. It eventually gets beamed up. By this point, Voyager is sinking into a pool of "silver blood". Janeway finds out that the Kim duplicate "wants a family", that is, copy the entire crew into a population for the planet. Janeway agrees, under the condition of releasing Voyager. It is released, and the "silver blood" copies everyone on the ship as the planet's population. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 23 - Living Witness

The episode opens with a scene on the "warship Voyager", quite obviously an unrealistic depiction of the ship which turns out to be the museum's recreation of events. Although the brutality and detachment of the crew is chilling, there are several dark, campy elements of the alternate reality that provide comic relief: the crew wear altered versions of their uniforms with no combadges or rank insignia, black gloves, and black turtlenecks. Chakotay's name is repeatedly mispronounced by the crew as ("CHAC-a-tay") and his tattoo has grown in size as to cover half of his face and appears in the design of Māori Tā moko markings. Janeway sports a butch haircut and excessive schadenfreude. Meanwhile, the Doctor has become an android mass murderer while Tuvok has adopted a sinister sense of humor; Seven of Nine is a full Borg with several other Borg drones serving as shock troops onboard Voyager. There are also numerous Kazon actively patrolling the ship with phaser rifles in hand, and Neelix is depicted as a bridge officer. In the actual course of events, Captain Janeway had agreed to provide the Vaskans with medical supplies in exchange for dilithium crystals. The Kyrians, who were at war with the Vaskans, boarded Voyager to stop the deal, which they thought was a weapons deal of some sort. During their time on the ship, they stole a data module carrying a backup copy of the Doctor. 700 years later, this module was part of a Kyrian museum exhibit which showed their version of the encounter. This biased encounter showed Voyager as a warship with a savage and sadistic crew that was willing to commit genocide. Even the Vaskan in the simulation became horrified over the atrocities committed, but the simulated Janeway told him it was too late to stop now. A curator at the museum, always fascinated by Voyager's story even though they were "the bad guys", finally reactivated the Doctor. Initially, his claims that Voyager was depicted as unfairly malicious are ignored, and he is told he could be held accountable for war crimes. Eventually, after fending off an angry mob, he convinces the Kyrian curator to help him set the 700-year-old record straight. The episode ends an indeterminate number of years later, as the museum's new curator explains that the two species finally made peace thanks to the efforts of the Doctor, although he always regretted that he would never see any of his friends again. Following that, the Doctor served as the surgical chancellor for the Kyrians and Vaskans for many years, but eventually he took a ship and departed for Earth; he said that 'He had a longing for home'.

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 22 - Unforgettable

An alien woman named Kellin requests asylum aboard Voyager. When she comes aboard, The Doctor attempts to scan her but his tricorder does not retain any data about her. She is from a race called the Ramura, whose chemistry is such that any other race fails to remember them after a few hours, which is their explanation as to why the tricorder cannot scan her. They release a pheromone that does this. She claims that she came aboard Voyager a month ago to track down a Ramuran fugitive, and that during that time she and Chakotay fell in love. The crew looks into it and evidence seems to support her claim that she was on Voyager. Chakotay does not remember her, but as they work together he understands that he could have developed feelings for her. Just as Chakotay and Kellin start to pick up where they left off, another member of her race appears and fires a weapon at her. The effect of the weapon is to disintegrate her memories of her experiences aboard Voyager. This time, Chakotay is the one trying to convince her that they fell in love, but she is unresponsive and wants to return home. Kellin and the other Ramuran eventually depart Voyager, telling Chakotay that it would be better if he just forgot about her. As they've loaded a virus into the computer which will erase all record of the aliens' existence and encounter with Voyager, Chakotay wants to remember everything about this experience, so he's left writing with an old-fashioned pen and paper.

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 21 - The Omega Directive

Voyager is suddenly rocked by a distant explosion. Although ship systems appear undamaged, all information and control screens are suddenly locked out and replaced by an eerie omega symbol. Captain Janeway arrives on the bridge and informs the crew not to worry. She orders the ship's computer to override and transfer all data to her ready room, but leaves without explaining to her bemused crew what happened. After locking herself in her office she asks the computer to brief her on the detection of "Omega". Janeway also summons Seven of Nine into her ready room, as the Borg also have their own knowledge of "Omega". Because Voyager has been separated from Starfleet, the Omega Team (a specially trained group which would normally be tasked with handling situations involving "Omega") cannot be brought in to deal with the problem. Janeway decides to break the code of silence involving the symbol and share information with her senior officers. She announces that she has just received the Omega Directive, an order that requires Starfleet captains to ignore the Prime Directive and destroy the Omega particle at all costs. Omega is very unstable and even the destruction of one particle can nullify subspace for many light years around it, rendering faster-than-light travel impossible. Moving to the coordinates of the explosion they encounter the alien race that created it. The society is on the brink of economic failure, and are making Omega to "give their children a chance at a future." Seven of Nine, an ex-Borg member of the crew, displays an interest in the scientists' methods, hoping to save the omega particles and harness them, because she believes them to be perfection - infinite parts working together as one (like the Borg) - despite ample Starfleet and Borg evidence of their danger. The Borg are expected to assimilate it at all costs, even though they have experienced the loss of a large quantity of Borg vessels to Omega explosions while trying to harness the power of the substance. Seven notes, however, that the ability to harness Omega would make the Borg an unstoppable force; this remark only motivates Janeway to wipe out all omega particles, at any cost. Eventually all the particles are safely gathered together and detonated a safe distance from the alien planet. Just before they are destroyed, they stabilize, and Seven is able to view perfection for a brief moment. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 20 - Vis a Vis

Tom Paris has become restless and uninspired by life on Voyager. Lately he's been spending a lot of time in a holodeck program restoring a 1969 Camaro. He hasn't been paying much attention to his girlfriend B'Elanna Torres and he's been skipping out on his shifts in Sickbay as The Doctor's assistant. His attention is sparked, though, when he's called to the bridge to help identify an anomaly. It turns out that the anomaly is being caused by a ship with a working coaxial warp drive, a technology previously thought to be only hypothetical. A vessel equipped with such a system would be able to leap great distances almost instantaneously. The ship is malfunctioning and the crew of Voyager welcomes the pilot on board and offers to help fix his fascinating ship. Tom Paris is the first to volunteer. The pilot, Steth (Dan Butler), is an adventurer of sorts making a living as a test pilot taking new ship designs out on their first flights. Tom and Steth become fast friends, and Tom requests time off from his boring Sickbay job to help figure out Steth's flashy new ship. Steth invites Tom on a road trip, offering him a chance to fly new kinds of vessels and see the sights, but when he considers his obligations on Voyager, Tom regretfully declines. Tom is just finishing repairs on Steth's ship and is preparing to bid the interesting fellow goodbye when Steth grabs him and somehow switches bodies with him. Steth has lost his ability to keep his consciousness and body combined, and must take a new body. Steth remains on Voyager in the body of Tom Paris, and sends his ship, and Tom's mind, away at high speed. Safely hidden behind Tom's friendly face, Steth assumes a new life. He has none of Tom's memories and a different personality, so fitting into the crew proves to be challenging. This new Tom Paris confounds the Doctor, whom he flatters into giving him a vacation, and B'Elanna, who he charms with affection. Back on Steth's ship, Tom awakens in a new body. He's almost immediately captured by a woman who has a major grievance with Steth (or the alien who had been posing as Steth). It seems that the real Steth is inside the body of female alien named Daelen, and the real Steth wants his body back. Meanwhile, the alien posing as Tom on Voyager has begun to exhibit behavior that makes the crew suspicious. He is cruel to B'Elanna, starts drinking alcohol on duty, and snoops into Captain Janeway's log. When she demands an explanation for these actions, he jumps her. Tuvok shoots him before he can choke her to death, and she bolts from the room. Tom has convinced the real Steth that the alien has done both of them wrong, and suggests they join forces to find Voyager and fix the situation. They reach the ship just as the alien flies off with a shuttlecraft, in Captain Janeway's body. Tom disables the shuttle and brings the alien back in. Steth's original body, the one that the alien and Tom had been using, is restored to Steth, and the alien - now trapped back in Daelen's female body - is taken into custody, so all of his/her previous victims can be restored to their original bodies. Grateful to be back in his own life again, Tom heads off to make up with B'Elanna. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 19 - The Killing Game Part 2

The Doctor finds a way to release Seven and Janeway from their neural interfaces, and the two plan to break the Hirogen's hold on the rest of the crew. Just then, the Americans storm St. Clare with the help of the French Resistance. Captain Miller (Chakotay) and Lt. Bobby Davis (Tom Paris) arrive to take down the Nazi stronghold in the town, calling in an air strike to blow up German headquarters. The explosion overloads the holo-projectors' already strained circuitry and blasts an opening from the holodeck into the rest of the ship. Holograms invade Voyager and the ship becomes a World War II battleground. Janeway fights off holo-soldiers and Hirogen Nazis to plant explosives in Sickbay. When it blows, the neural interfaces release the Voyager crew and they find themselves immersed in a war, or in the case of Neelix, amidst a herd of drunken Klingons. Meanwhile, the leader of the Hirogen captures Janeway and she realizes what he is trying to do. His own culture will never survive with their lifestyle of wandering in scattered hunting parties, and if he could establish holo-programs his people could stay together and experience countless hunts of all kinds. Janeway takes advantage of his wisdom and the two establish a truce. Unfortunately, one of the other Hirogen has become inspired by Nazi philosophy. He assassinates his leader and aims to conquer Voyager's crew in the spirit of righteous domination. Just in time, Neelix and The Doctor manage to merge the holo-programs, unleashing the murderous Klingons on the Nazis before they can execute the Voyager crew. Harry overloads the holodecks and the program finally ends. After days of fighting, a truce is called between Voyager's crew and the Hirogen. The Hirogen agree to leave Voyager in exchange for holodeck technology. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 18 - The Killing Game Part 1

Captain Janeway is a Klingon warrior complete with holographic cranial ridges when she is critically wounded by a Hirogen participating in a Klingon holodeck program. The Hirogen heals her wounds and she is put back to work in a second, more spectacular program: a town in Nazi-occupied France circa 1944. The Hirogen find Nazism fascinating, and are using the program to experience life in a military bent on conquering the planet. The Hirogen take on the roles of Nazi officers patrolling the town of St. Clare, with Voyager's brainwashed crew as their prey, members of the French Resistance. Janeway is now Katrine, a French restaurateur and leader of the underground plotting against their Nazi occupiers. She works with bartender (Tuvok), who is loyal to the movement, and a chanteuse and munitions expert (Seven of Nine, whose voice was not dubbed during the songs). Neelix plays a baker who ferries messages and secret codes to the resistance headquarters. He is eventually wounded and transferred to the Klingon program after his recovery. B'Elanna is a heavily pregnant French girl named Brigitte whose affair with a Nazi Captain allows her access to enemy areas (Roxann Dawson actually was pregnant while filming this episode). The Hirogen enjoy using the Voyager crew in the simulation, because they are more rewarding to hunt down and kill than are holograms. In Sickbay, The Doctor is furious that he must repeatedly save his crewmates from life-threatening wounds sustained as they are hunted in the simulations. He is also distressed that there has already been one Voyager fatality. Harry Kim, who is being forced to expand the holodecks throughout the entire ship, works with The Doctor to regain control of the ship and its crew from the Hirogen.

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 17 - Retrospect

Seven of Nine is overcome by distress and under hypnosis recalls a traumatic repressed memory. In her mind she sees a trader with whom Voyager made a transaction recently. She remembers him forcefully removing Borg technology from her body. In essence, Seven was saying that she was violated by said trader. Voyager heads back to confront the trader, who denies ever having assaulted Seven. Evidence mounts against him and his people put out a warrant for his arrest. He flees, still proclaiming his innocence. Captain Janeway and Tuvok continue investigating the alleged assault, and find that it is likely the evidence has been misinterpreted and Seven is reliving a memory from her time with the Borg, in which parts were applied to and removed from her routinely. Seven realizes they are correct and she has experienced a false memory. When the Voyager crew follows the trader to explain that they know he is innocent, he panics and blows himself up. Seven learns a bit more about being human by experiencing remorse, and The Doctor also agonizes over the result of his hypnosis of Seven.

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 16 - Prey

Voyager discovers an injured Hirogen who is in the middle of an intense hunt for what is a formidable and dangerous prey even for Hirogen standards. He is brought in to sickbay for treatment, but is eager to get back out and track down his trophy prey. Before he is able to do so, the prey alien invades Voyager. It is a tough, armored, telepathic, insectlike creature that the Borg have designated Species 8472. When the Hirogen targets the 8472, the latter telepathically communicates with Tuvok, pleading to be rescued from the hunter and returned to its home, which is a different dimension known as "fluidic space." Captain Janeway immediately asks Seven of Nine to help the alien return to its home territory. Seven refuses. Species 8472 is so powerful that it can destroy the Borg, and Seven's loathing of the species is still deeply ingrained. The Hirogen escapes his confines and corners 8472. He grapples with it and Seven beams both of them to one of the Hirogen ships nearby. By allowing the Hirogen to capture 8472, Seven has blatantly disobeyed Janeway, and she is disciplined with limits on her access privileges.

Recap Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4, Episode 15 - Hunters

Starfleet, having recently learned that Voyager is far away in the Delta Quadrant, begins sending messages to the crew. The data is being forwarded to the ship via powerful Hirogen transmission arrays, which are run on the energy of micro-singularities(miniature black holes). The crew is excited to receive letters from home, but frustrated when the Hirogen demand they stop using the communications array. Janeway defies the Hirogen as many more letters from home are still in its database. Letters continue to be downloaded, spreading good and bad news alike. Tuvok learns there is another addition to his family, while Janeway learns her fiance has married another woman. Chakotay and Torres learn that a large majority of their Maquis friends have been imprisoned or killed. Tom Paris, facing the possibility of a difficult letter from home, realizes his own problems pale in relation to Torres' news. An attempt to retrieve more of the data sends Tuvok and Seven to the array; however, they are soon captured by the Hirogen. Many of the 'lower decks' crew are shown by name and face as 'postmaster' Neelix delivers the letters around the ship, and Ensign Harry Kim spends much of the episode wondering if he will get a letter at all, due to data loss. Tuvok and Seven undergo questioning and torture by the Hirogen, and the Voyager crew attempt to devise a way to rescue their comrades. By the end of the episode, Tuvok and Seven are rescued, but the link home is destroyed. Source: Wikipedia If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now
