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, you insecure little man....
18 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

odd see Vorik for first time Neelix worried his usefulness is over on ship

Despite being on Voyager for a long time, Mr. Neelix is apparently very insecure and worried that now that the ship is about to enter into space about which he's totally unfamiliar, they'll no longer want him*. So he decides that the proper course of action is to make himself invaluable by learning some important skills needed on the ship. This proves to be a waste of time (after all he IS Neelix) and so his plan is to buy a map of the upcoming portion of space where the ship is headed....but it ends up leading to LOTS of complications when Neelix relies on an old friend to help him get the map.

This episode is odd because Mr. Vorik, the Vulcan, is seen for the first time. So you are expected to believe that after three seasons you just haven't seen him before. Yeah, right. Despite this, the episode is interesting and is worth seeing.

*I never liked Neelix very much. Aside from him killing a traitorous crewman, he mostly is just rather annoying. It's just my opinion.
