Torres digs up an old training exercise that Tuvok started and left unfinished, that deals with a Maquis mutiny on board Voyager. Unfortunately, Seska left a little gift behind before she departed Voyager, and now she’s returned from beyond the grave to torment the crew some more…. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch lives through the “Worst Case Scenario.”
I particularly love how the episode starts in the middle of the holodeck scenario without explanation, leaving the viewer to wonder what the heck is going on. The hints are all there—Chakotay’s dialogue sounds very much like Voyager’s situation is new, not three years old, Tuvok refers to Chakotay as a newly installed first officer, Chakotay calls Torres “Ensign,” and then we see Seska as a Bajoran and Kes with her old haircut, and you wonder what’s going on. Is this time travel? A holodeck scenario? An alternate reality?
