Doppelgänger was a word from the German language which meant an exact duplicate of a living person. The term doppelganger has been used throughout history, most often when someone met an identical copy of themselves who was not a biological twin. Miles O'Brien, Harry Kim, Naomi Wildman, and Kes were replaced by doppelgängers of their respective "originals" after they died. (DS9: "Visionary", VOY: "Deadlock", "Fury")

Physical duplicates Edit

Travis Mayweather Edit

Mayweather's dead replica

In 2152, the automated repair station created a duplicate of Travis Mayweather who was subsequently electrocuted. He was mistaken for Mayweather until Doctor Phlox performed an autopsy. (ENT: "Dead Stop")

James T. Kirk Edit

Spock Edit

Stavos Keniclius Edit

Jean-Luc Picard Edit

William T. Riker Edit

Because the split between signals resulted in an equal distribution of Riker's transporter pattern, both of them had an equally legitimate claim to being the "real" William T. Riker, however it can be argued that "Thomas" is the real Riker as the transporter chief aboard the Potemkin used a second beam signal to retrieve the current person known as William T. Riker while the original beam signal rematerialized on the planet surface.

Katherine Pulaski Edit

Miles O'Brien Edit

  • Miles O'Brien was killed in 2371, after becoming infected with delta-series radioisotopes following an accident aboard Deep Space 9. He was replaced by his future self from a few hours later, making the current O'Brien a doppelgänger of the "original." (DS9: "Visionary")
  • A replicant of O'Brien was created by the Parada government, possibly to assassinate someone at the upcoming peace talks on the station between the government and rebel forces. This O'Brien died never knowing he wasn't the "real" one. (DS9: "Whispers")

Harry Kim Edit

  • Harry Kim was killed on Voyager when he was pulled through a hull breach on deck 15. He was replaced by the other Harry Kim from the other Voyager, making the current Harry a doppelgänger of the original. (VOY: "Deadlock")

Naomi Wildman Edit

  • Naomi Wildman died of complications due to hemocythemia. She was replaced by the Naomi Wildman for the other Voyager, making the current Naomi a doppelgänger of the original. (VOY: "Deadlock")

Kes Edit

  • In 2376, Kes time traveled to 2371, so she could return her with past self to Ocampa while Voyager's crew would by handed over to the Vidiians. The attempt failed, and Janeway was forced to kill the older Kes. Her actions warned Janeway of the future, allowing her to prevent the future the older Kes came from. By 2376, when Kes repeated the actions of her deceased counterpart, up to the point of time traveling, Janeway was able to convince her not to time travel, with the "past" Kes opting instead to return to her homeworld. (VOY: "Fury")
