Stardate not given: The crew anticipates the arrival of Voyager’s first baby as Ensign Wildman goes into labor. But the expectations are marred when a flotilla of Vidiian ships is spotted ahead. Janeway orders a detour through a nebula, but that route causes severe damage to the ship. Voyager becomes stranded when its antimatter supply begins to drain with no explanation. Harry is killed when a hull breach opens beneath him and he falls into open space, and Kes vanishes through an unknown portal. The crew prepares to abandon ship, and Janeway finally decides to evacuate the bridge when
Stardate not given: Captain Janeway sees an image of herself on the bridge, battered, bleeding and running toward the turbolift. And for reasons no one can explain, a duplicate of Kes has suddenly appeared on board. After an investigation, it is revealed that the subspace anomalies within the nebula caused a quantum-level duplication of the ship and crew. Torres establishes communications with the other Voyager, but the two captains cannot find any course of action that won’t destroy one or both ships. When a Vidiian ship arrives and the organ harvesters board Voyager and begin wiping out the crew, only one option seems viable – setting Voyager to self-destruct. But without the crew’s help, the “other” crew could also perish.
