While Capt. Janeway is a hostage of the Hierarchy, also know as the Overlookers, the Doctor is under their permanent surveillance. He needs to talk his crew into abandoning the ship's warp core, for which purpose he takes on the form of Janeway. When his plot is discovered, he escapes from the ship with the Delta Flyer, taking the warp core with him. However, he leaves an encoded message that allows Tuvok and Paris in a shuttle to find the Overlooker ship. When Janeway and the Doctor, whose program is about to decompile, struggle with the Overlookers, one of them, Nar, eventually decides to end the conflict.
With Nar's help, Janeway, the Doctor, and the warp core are recovered and they return quickly to Voyager to help fix the Doctor's destabilizing program. Though the Doctor bemoans that he will soon die, Torres is able to fix his matrix. The Doctor isolates himself in the Sick Bay for a week, believing that the crew will come to hate him for his deception. Janeway visits him and tells him that no one has any ill will towards him, and invites him for coffee at the holodeck.
Errors and Explanations
- John A. Lang on Friday, April 20, 2001 - 12:34 am: Janeway kidnapped AGAIN?!?!?! Somebody should send that woman to the Captain James T. Kirk School of Self-Defence. Sheeez! Yeoman Landon from The Apple (TOS) can defend herself better than Janeway! (Don't EVER forget that "Rockette" kick from Landon! That was juicy!) The Undesirable Element on Friday, April 20, 2001 - 10:00 am: The only other time I can recall Janeway getting kidnapped was in Threshold John A. Lang on Saturday, April 21, 2001 - 2:30 am: Still...with all the times Voyager has been taken over by hostile aliens, crew abductions, yada, yada, yada, you'd think Janeway would be a lot more protective about her crew, her ship and herself! She seems to let the tragedies happen before actually doing something. Start kicking butt, Janeway! Use those legs! Rene on Tuesday, April 24, 2001 - 6:49 am: Does Workforce ring a bell?
- John A. Lang on Sunday, May 13, 2001 - 9:54 pm: SPOILER: The Doctor gets to impersonate Janeway...physically...by transforming himself into a Janeway "clone". ScottN on Monday, May 14, 2001 - 9:25 am: Didn't he do that in "The Thaw"? Granted it was only in the funky clown world, but, nevertheless... KAM on Tuesday, May 15, 2001 - 4:36 am: ScottN, I don't think it was the Doctor as the holo-Janeway in The Thaw. I think it was just a generic hologram of Janeway. Jwb52z on Tuesday, May 15, 2001 - 11:54 am: It was a synthetic brain type thing that simulated Janeway. That's how she explains it to the clown.
- LUIGI NOVI on Thursday, May 17, 2001 - 2:45 am: In Act 4, Janeway fiddles with Doc’s holoemitter, saying that if she can amplify his matrix, she might be able to disrupt the brig’s forcefield. Can’t Doc pass through forcefields? Maybe his emitter can’t, but couldn’t Janeway hold the emitter in her hand behind the forcefield, allowing Doc to move through it and maybe coldcock the aliens? No. The holoemmiter would need to be in direct contact with the Doc's hologramatic form - at least that's the impression I get!
