Finding themselves the underdog of the Delta Quadrant, Voyager attempts to form an alliance with select Kazon sects. Janeway also inducts the Trabe, a race once made up of tyrants who oppressed the Kazon but now are scattered and vulnerable. When the groups gather for talks, Janeway suspects the Trabe may not be as frail as they claim. Written by Meribor

Captain Kathryn Janeway: [on banding together with the Kazon] How can I consider it? I can't just walk away from the precepts Starfleet has laid out for us. You don't deal with outlaws. You don't involve yourself in the political machinations of other cultures. It goes against everything I believe, everything I've trained for, everything experience has taught me.
Lieutenant Tuvok: Quite right.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Do I hear a 'however' coming?
Lieutenant Tuvok: You are perceptive, Captain.

Ones enemy's enemy is not always ones friend
15 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the latest Kazon attack which left one crew member dead and several wounded the crew are starting to question the wisdom of the captain's insistence that they don't deal with the Kazon. Chakotay talks to her and persuades her that they must do something. She agrees to having discussions with the Kazon but says that this will not involve giving any technology. While Voyager heads off to talk to Seska and the Kazon Nistrim Neelix goes off to talk to one of the smaller sects. His talks do not go well and he finds himself in custody alongside a group of people called the Trabe. We learns that these people used to be the dominant race in the sector and that they used to subjugate the Kazon until they rebelled and forced the Trabe to abandon their home world and head into space. They manage to escape and meet up with Voyager which had had no luck either. The Trabe suggest that they form an alliance and call a meeting between Voyager, the Trabe and the leaders of the various Kazon sects to negotiate safe passage. During the meeting Janeway realises something is very wrong and they beam out just before a Trabe ship attacks. With the Trabe proved to be dishonest the new alliance is very short lived and Voyager is once again on its own in an even more dangerous position than before.

This episode had some impressive action scenes one of which includes a rare character death. I liked how the Trabe who had apparently learnt their lesson concerning their treatment of the Kazon turned to be as bad as they used to be although it might have been even better if the alliance had lasted a couple more episodes before they were exposed.
