Story: Vis à Vis
Written By: Robert J. Dougherty
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Year: 1998

An alien comes on board Voyager and switches places with Tom Paris, who’s been acting rebellious for no reason lately. We eventually find out the alien that switched with Tom wasn’t even in his original body! Twist! It is your standard body swap episode, it manages to drag it out to 45 minutes but it doesn’t really do all that much new with the material.
Sadly I was hoping for a better season than I’ve gotten, everything started off so well, but I just had to give it time for the writers of this series to once again fall back on generic plot devices and lazy scripts.
