Storyline

With Janeway's approval, Paris enters the Delta Flyer in an inter-species, light-speed shuttle race. Four races, once at war, are holding the race as a celebration of their peace treaty. Wrapped up in competition, Paris forgets a promise to spend a weekend with B'Elanna. Torres is hurt but, with advice from Seven of all people, she decides to partake in the race as Paris' co-pilot. When the race is underway, the couple realize their participation was intentional; the Delta Flyer has been rigged as a bomb by one of the racers seeking to end accord with a bang.

Tom, the man-child, enters a race.
4 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode is very reminiscent of the Star Wars movie where young Aniken Skywalker is in some sort of hovercraft race. Here, it's much the same sort of thing but the race is in space. However, Tom Paris is flying this craft--so the pilot is clearly someone LESS mature than Aniken!

When the show begins, Tom meets a kindred spirit who loves to speed about in a shuttle. She informs him that her race and three others are having a big race to celebrate peace--and Paris is welcome to join in if he'd like. However, selfish Tom totally forgets that he's been promising B'Elanna for ages that he'd take her to the holodeck for a little vacation! Oops. This sort of thoughtlessness gets B'Elanna wondering if she really should remain with the man- child, Tom.

Talk about light-weight plots! A race?! Still, it plays reasonably well but ends on a very unhappy ending--B'Elanna agrees to actually marry that schmuck! But I DID like the final scene of them in the shuttle--it's kind of cute.
