Neelix: I've heard you were in some trouble in the past - spent time in prison.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: That's right.
Neelix: Do you... Would you... tell me how you got in trouble?
Lieutenant Tom Paris: I've thought a lot about that. And it comes down to one simple fact: I didn't tell the truth. I made a mistake, which happens to people. But if I'd admitted that mistake it would have been a lot better. But I lied about it; and it nearly ruined my life.

Neelix gets in trouble
19 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As the episode opens Neelix is keen to take on new responsibilities on Voyager, asking both Tuvok and B'Elanna if he can assist them. He is summoned to the bridge when Voyager encounters a strange phenomena, he says it is the 'Nekrit Expanse'. Before entering the expanse they think it would be wise to stock up on needed supplies so go to a nearby space station. While trying to acquire a map of the Expanse Neelix meets Wicks, an old friend, who claims he can get one along with other needed supplies. He says he is trading medical supplies for the items but it soon becomes clear that he is actually dealing drugs. The deal goes wrong and the man they were trading with ends up dead. Chakotay and Paris are arrested as they were seen talking to him earlier; Neelix can't see his friends gaoled so decides to tell the truth and attempt to keep his freedom by offering to help entrap the main drug suppliers operating on the station.

This was a good episode where it looked as if Neelix was genuinely concerned about his position on Voyager because they would soon be entering space he had no knowledge of. Unlike many Neelix centred episodes it wasn't intended to be funny, in fact one was left feeling rather sorry for him as he got into trouble while trying to do the right thing.
