Dark Matter Nebula

Story: Cathexis
Written By: Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Year: 1995

Some possessing entity invades Voyager. Some entity that comes near some dark matter nebula attacks a shuttlecraft (that is out for no real reason that I can figure…why the hell is a shuttle going out when the ONLY GOAL is to get home? This show makes no sense sometimes.)
So anyhow, this thing attacks the shuttle, renders Chakotay brain dead, and invades the ship. So Janeway’s plan is to TAKE THEM BACK TO THE NEBULA. Or maybe she is invaded.

The whole episode is confusing and pointless and tries to be filled with paranoia like “The Thing” but it doesn’t come close to the quality of paranoia used in Deep Space Nine with the Founders. So yeah…it is a crappy episode.
