Tom Paris: Look, we could spend weeks trying to solve this, but we've got a ticking clock. Engines are working, weapons systems are online; I say we launch now and hope for the best.
Tuvok: Mr. Paris, that is perhaps the most illogical statement you've ever made.

Building a new shuttle
18 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Since learning that the Maquis has been wiped out back in the Alpha Quadrant B'Elanna has been endangering her life by engaging in dangerous programs on the holodeck with the safety protocols deactivated, until now however nobody has realised what she was up to. When Voyager launches a probe to a nearby gas giant they are not pleased when the Malon attempt to steal it, they manage to prevent them from getting it by taking it into the gas giant's atmosphere. While it can't be acquired by the Malon it is also impossible for Voyager to retrieve. Tom believes this is an ideal time to build a new improved shuttle which he as dubbed the Delta Flier, it would take a week to build but would be able to enter the atmosphere which regular shuttles couldn't. As they set to work building the flier a scan reveals that the Malon are also building a shuttle so the race is on to see who can finish first. When B'Elanna's reckless activities come to light she is taken off the project and Chakotay tries to establish just why she is endangering herself. When it is time to launch the flier B'Elanna asks to accompany the others on the mission, not too surprisingly she ends up saving the day.

This was a decent episode and Roxann Dawson did a good job as B'Elanna Torres although it is a pity we weren't given any hints about her problems in previous episodes. That said it gave her character a bit more depth.
