Review : Brannon Braga seems to have redeemed himself a little as a writer with this. It's an excellent take on 'revisionist' history. At first, I thought we must be in the Mirror Universe (forgetting that DS9 had ruined it) and it only dawned on me later that it was all a series of mistakes. It must have been great fun for the cast to get to play the baddies for once. Kate Mulgrew certainly convinced, and Robert Picardo seemed to have his Emergency Medical Android enjoy every minute of torturing a helpless prisoner - very convincing. He was also very convincing as his regular character trying to save the crew's reputations. The EMH backup module seems a bit odd considering "Message in a Bottle", but perhaps the crew made it to prevent problems like that from happening again (no sooner had they finished it, than the Kyrians nicked it). The 'Warship Voyager' was certainly impressive (although she managed to look hideous from the front as well as the back) and perhaps the result of a 'one that got away' story. Every time someone tells the story, the ship grows another weapon, stronger shields or new crew members.

Review : When I first watched this episode, it really captured my imagination and made me think think about our own planet's history. The actors really fill into their roles as their evil counterparts. I especially like Janeway's every word, oozing with menace and Tuvok's evil grin. Robert Picardo does a bang up job as the Doctor again and the ending is handled extremely well. All in all, one of the truly great Voyager episodes.

Review : The perfect episode. This is why I watch Star Trek. (I think Hedgehog should be listed as a species. :-)
