Quotes

[Paxim is reluctant to attack Voyager with his Talaxian ships]
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Commander Paxim, my people are counting on you. Look, no one knows Voyager like I do. I know every vulnerability, every blind spot. Don't worry, I have a plan.
Paxim: [sighs] Very well. We'll rendezvous in an hour. Paxim out.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: [to himself] One hour. I should be able to come up with some kind of plan in one hour.

Season Three opens with the crew still trapped on the prehistoric planet the crew split up to find food and water, as Hogan gathers bones that might be usable as tools from a cave mouth he is attacked by a creature that is dwelling within, we just hear a scream but it is assumed he is dead. There is some good news however, it soon becomes apparent that Tom managed to get away on a shuttle, it is damaged but he still manages to destroy an attacking Kazon vessel. While the crew are dealing with the planet's local population Tom has met up with the Talaxians and the Doctor and Suder are trying to think of a way to retake Voyager, although Suder is concerned that he may have to kill some of the Kazons; something he would have relished a few months before but is now worried that it will bring back his old violent feelings. When volcanic activity threatens both the crew and the natives Chakotay rescues one of them this leads to the two groups cooperating. Suder manages to sabotage the ship's systems so that Tom and the Talaxians can retake Voyager and rescue the rest of the crew.

This episode got off to a great start, killing off a character who we had seen in previous episodes made it clear that this was a dangerous planet. Brad Dourif makes a welcome reappearance as the conflicted sociopath Suder; it was god that he got an heroic death. This episode also saw the end of Seska, Martha Hackett was good in the role making one of the best villains in the series.
