Not had a Paris episode in a while? Here, have one now, and one that felt to me that it wouldn't have been out of place in TOS.
Tom Paris is restless and shirking his responsibilities in Sick Bay to “repair” a “car” in the holodeck (guess it’s fixed after the last episode). Yes, it’s just like the previous three years of character development never happened! Anyway, a ship with a new type of warp drive shows up which needs repairs, Tom Paris is only too happy to help out which pleases everyone. Except the owner, Steth, is really an alien which swaps DNA (not like that) and appearances with other lifeforms, and you thought identity theft was a problem.
Dan Butler as Steth, or one of them anyway, was particularly good in this. Especially at being the different characters he has to play. I did notice he was even using Paris’ mannerisms later in the episode. Seven had about... wait for it.... seven lines in this but was still good and it was unintentionally hilarious when Paris/Steth threatened her.
With Roxann Dawson’s pregnancy, I think you can tell how far into the season we are with how far up her body they’re allowed to shoot. With this one, you can only about see her face so we must be towards the end.
Lastly I've just done a quick review of a Voyager comic, Planet Killer, at the Post Atomic Horror website (link also at the top of the page). Visit won't you? And if you haven't heard their podcast give it a listen.
