Synopsis - When Tuvok is attacked by a "cloaked" alien and suffers near-total amnesia, Neelix takes it upon himself to rehabilitate him should Janeway and the Doctor be unable to find a way to reverse the alien weapon's effects.

Riddles finally gives Tim Russ an opportunity to show some of his real acting ability. His refined Vulcan character finally gets to let go of his logic and have fun displaying emotion for a change. And fun he has experimenting with baking new desserts. However it's not all fun and games, as his dramitic scene with Neelix in sickbay demonstrates; a highly charged scene which really show's Tim's acting ability. Despite a few minor flaws, as with any Voyager episode, the only real disappointment (which is that big, all things considered; and backed up by a good advice from Neelix) is that they actually did find a way to reverse the weapon's effects. How interesting it would have been to see Tuvok's rehabilitation spread out over a few episodes or even the rest of the series; but since the writers weren't up to that challenge, the ending will do as is.
