Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Deadlock”


It’s two, two, two Voyagers for the price of one! The entire ship is duplicated, and much wackiness ensues, especially when the Vidiians show up. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch is trapped in a “Deadlock.”

An excerpt:

And then there’s the ending. Why are Kim #2 and baby Wildman #2 the only ones that Janeway #2 sends over? At this point, Voyager #1 has 146 people on board (they had 154 when they left the Ocampa homeworld, seven have died, and one left the ship after being exposed as a spy), and one of those 146 is confined to quarters for being a murderer. Wouldn’t it have made more sense for Janeway #2 to give a general order for anyone who doesn’t want to die (and hadn’t already been killed by the Vidiians) to head through the rift? Yes, it would mean those people would have a duplicate working alongside them, but Voyager needs bodies, plus why shouldn’t those duplicates have the option to live if they want? (I mean, if Will Riker can live with it…)
