Temporarily shielded from the alien attack, Janeway orders that their first priority is to find the Equinox, stop Ransom and recover Seven of Nine. Chakotay disagrees but obeys. Voyager finds Equinox and captures a few of its crew members before they escape again. Chakotay stops Janeway within seconds of sacrificing the Equinox crewman and Janeway relieves him of duty. Meanwhile, the Equinox EMH, posing as Voyager's doctor, keeps in contact with Ransom. The Doctor, on-board the Equinox with his ethical subroutines disabled, performs surgery on Seven that will extract information but destroy her brain. Ransom has a change of heart and decides to surrender to Janeway. In disagreement, his crew stages a mutiny. Janeway finds the Ankari, a race that can mediate with the attacking aliens, makes contact with them and agrees to turn over the Equinox in exchange for Voyager's safety. Written by Meribor

Did You Know?


First "Voyager" episode to be broadcast after Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) had wrapped up its series at the end of the proceeding season. For two years (its 6th and 7th seasons), "Voyager" was the sole carrier of the Star Trek franchise. See more »


When Voyager is chasing the Equinox, you can see both vessels are at warp. However Voyagers warp nacelles are not in the upward warp position, but in the lower impulse position. See more »


Captain Rudy Ransom: You know, once we get our enhanced warp drive back on-line, we'll be on our way home. But it'll still take months to get there. You can spend that time in the brig, or... you can become part of this crew. I prefer the latter.
Seven of Nine: I'd prefer the brig.
Captain Rudy Ransom: You know, Janeway is not the only captain who can help you explore your humanity.
Seven of Nine: You would be an inferior role model.

The second part of this Savage confrontation is even better.
28 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second of a two-part episode. In part one, Voyager makes contact with another Federation ship in the Delta Quadrant. They apparently got there the same way Voyager did. However, it soon becomes apparent to survive this long, the Equinox crew have chosen to ignore the Prime Directive and they have been killing a species of life to convert it into fuel! Janeway is horrified and has this crew confined to quarters. However the Equinox's evil holo doctor rescues them and they escape--leaving Voyager to deal with the wrath of the creatures Equinox has been killing!

In part two, you see a wonderful change come over Captain Janeway. She becomes a bit like Captain Ahab and is determined to do just about anything to punish the Equinox crew--including abandoning them to the wrath of the creatures they've been killing. This is MEGA- cool as the Captain it too often too nice--here she is absolutely nasty--and deservedly so. Well worth seeing just for this!

Overall, this is a very exciting episode--even better than part one. Well worth seeing.
