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.

A race and relationships
3 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While out testing upgrades to the Delta Flyer Tom and Harry get involved in an informal race with an alien woman called Irina. It turns out that she is on her way to rally and suggests that Tom should enter in the Flyer. Captain Janeway readily accepts his request to take part thinking it will help crew moral. One person who is not so pleased is B'Elanna who had been looking forward to a holodeck holiday with Tom which she had spent some time arranging. Trying to save their relationship she persuades Harry to let her take his place in the race. After an audacious manoeuvre the Delta Flyer finishes the first stage in the lead although it might have caused an accident that injured Irina's copilot. It turned out it wasn't the Flyer that caused the accident but an act of sabotage. In the final leg Harry takes over as Irina's copilot largely because he has a bit of a crush on her. Once again something goes wrong with her ship and Harry realises why; she sabotaged it herself so that she would be well away from the finish line when the other ship she sabotaged exploded... that other ship being the Delta Flyer.

This wasn't a bad episode and I enjoyed the idea of the Flyer taking part in a race it could have given us excitement without an antagonist or great peril; it was a pity that instead we got a clichéd plot featuring sabotage, it was also a bit of a shame that during what should have been an exciting climax we got a rather soapy scene between Tom and B'Elanna. The final scene where we see the words "Just Married" written on the Delta Flyer was pretty corny but earned a chuckle.
