Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Olivia Birkelund ...
Crewman Thompson (as Steve Dennis)


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

Mixed feelings
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, when I first saw this episode I hated it. I hated the fact the Janeway was apparently more of a bad guy than the bad guy she was so heck bent on tracking down. The only thing that made it watchable was Ransom's transformation from the person we saw who stopped at nothing to continue, to the person who stopped at nothing to end things. In a previous episode(Scorpion) Janeway had stopped and listened in time to prevent a disaster; here she had to stop and watch the disaster unfold before she finally listened.

Anyway on watching it a second time as it were, I realized there was a reason and a story to what was going on. It was a look into the lack of black and white ethics: the "bad guy" has a conscience and the protagonist seems to have left hers behind. There really is no black and white absolute when it comes to morals and ethics. Where do we stand on the issue? Personally I stand by the captain, when she has her head screwed on right that is. Nod to Chakotay for being respectful even as the single crew member to stand up to this.

Question: level 10 authorization is captains eyes only, shouldn't the first officer have level 9? is this some sort of odd mention of former lack of trust? Or did we not know of level 10 yet?
