Does Captain Janeway make a love connection? Perhaps....
26 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, an incredibly obnoxious group of Devore inspectors are rooting about Voyager looking for something--but you aren't sure what. During this search, these people act a lot like bullies and it's obvious that they are jerks. After they leave, you learn that this race HATES telepaths and they hunt them down and put them in concentration camps. During this inspection, there were a group of these telepaths as well as some telepathic crew members (such as the Vulcans) and they hid them inside the transporter buffer. Once they were brought back, the plan was to get them to safety as soon as possible--but considering how nasty the Devore are, there are bound to be more inspections. But using the buffer repeatedly could end up killing these telepaths.

The solution to their problem MIGHT have just arrived as Inspector Kashyk (the man who had led the inspection) shows up bit later and says he wants to defect. He claims that he hates how his people persecute the telepaths. Additionally, he seems to have taken a real shine to the Captain. So what's next? See the show.

This is a pretty good episode. I do wish that Kashyk had become a recurring character or they'd expanded the romance more, but apart from that it's worth seeing.
