Ensign Kim wakes up to find himself in San Fransisco. Not only is he him, but it also appears as if he has never served on board Voyager. Instead he is engaged to his girlfriend Libby and about to unveil a new design for a Starfleet runabout. Since he doesn't remember anything about the design, he complains of feeling ill and takes his leave the meeting. After accessing the Starfleet database about Voyager, Kim goes to Marseilles to ask Tom Paris, who also apparently did not join the Voyager crew, for his help. Paris refuses, and when Kim returns home, he is questioned by Starfleet for his unauthorized look at Starfleet's records of Voyager. Kim finds out from Cosimo, an alien supposed to look after him, that his shuttle craft intersected a time stream that caused him to switch into a reality of his life had he never joined the Voyager crew.

Admiral Strickler's name is given in the episode's end credits but is never established in episode dialogue. See more »


The view from Harry Kim's apartment would be impossible. Its established multiple times in the episode that Harry lives in the Mission District but we can clearly see the Transamerica pyramid and SF bay from his window. The only way this angle and height would be possible would be from Nob Hill or possibly Chinatown. The Mission District is simply too far away and south to get a view like that. See more »

The Big Yawn
3 February 2011 | by BolesroorSee all my reviews

Harry Kim, the equivalent of a fortune cookie without the fortune inside, awakens to find himself at home in San Francisco, his girlfriend beside him in bed. How can this be? Is this a spatial anomaly causing an alternate reality? A tear in the fabric of the space-time continuum? Yet another holodeck fantasy gone wrong? Does anybody care in the slightest?

Harry is able to piece together most of what's going on, thanks in part to Cosimo, the local cappuccino man who makes him cappuccino every morning. He reminds Harry what planet they're on and in what century, and exactly how sweet he likes his Vulcan Mocha. Harry, who has the amazing ability to never change his facial expression, doesn't. We're led to believe that on the inside he's conflicted and confused and concerned by this alternate reality, which ironically enough is not all that alternate than the one he knows as true.

After a trip to Marseilles to see Paris- don't ask- he returns home where he is promptly arrested by Starfleet as a spy. Yep, another warm and fuzzy waking-nightmare episode from the good folks at Hallmark. Luckily coffee man Cosimo reveals to Harry the secrets of the universe: THIS is exactly why you should always tip your Starbucks barista. Seems Harry's snagged in a temporal-inversion fold of the space-time matrix. Ah-ha. And it seems Cosimo is actually an alien sent to Earth to monitor Harry's safely from afar. Sure. Also, there's no way to ensure a return to the "correct" universe... Harry has as good a chance of restoring the time line and winding up back on Voyager as he does being re-born as a Ferengi proctologist. Harry- who doesn't seem particularly passionate about either existence- decides to return home because that's what it says in the script.

He and Paris steal a ship and head back toward the Mystery Hole, where their one-in-a-zillion odds of restoring reality play out perfectly. Harry's back to being the brown paper bag on a starship of colorful lunch boxes and Tom is back to being the creepy, directionless lout we all know and love.
