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

In Equinox Part 1, Janeway remarks that the USS Equinox is only capable of a maximum speed of warp 8. In part two she mentions that the maximum speed of the Equinox is warp 6. (It is possible however this second mention takes into account damage to the Equinox.) 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.

A gripping start for the new season
24 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Season Six of Voyager starts where series five ended; Voyager is under attack from the nucleogenic lifeforms and the Equinox warping away with Voyager's shield generator. Captain Janeway is determined to catch the Equinox and bring her crew to justice... no matter what the cost. Looking at Captain Ransom's record she realises that he will seek somewhere to hide. She finds Equinox in orbit above a nearby planet and captures two crewmen who were seeking fuel on the surface. When she lowers the shields in the room one of the prisoners is in and threatens to let the creatures kill him if he doesn't give them information Chokotay steps in and finds himself relieved of duty. She once again crosses the line when she meets a group of aliens who enable her to talk to the nucleogenic lifeforms; she makes a deal whereby they can kill anybody on Equinox if they leave Voyager alone. As Voyager moves against the Equinox things are made difficult by the Equinox's EMH who has unbeknownst to Voyager's crew replaced the Doctor.

This was a great season opener which included plenty of thrills and a sense that the Captain was going the same way as Ransom although not surprisingly by the end it looks as if she is back to her usual self. It was nice to see that Ransom got a chance to find redemption and those members of his crew who survived were integrated into Voyager's crew even if they were stripped of their rank. As with the first part John Savage put in a good performance as Capt. Ransom, believably portraying him as a man who realises the errors of his ways and seeks to find redemption.
