In Seven's assessment of ship-wide efficiency, she brings to the Captain's attention three 'black sheep' crewmen who have slipped through the cracks. Mortimer Harren (Jay Underwood) the overly-qualified underly-enthused engineer, Tal Celes has no confidence in herself and doesn't inspire it in others, and William Telfer the resident hypochondriac. Seeking to guide her strays back to the flock, Janeway orders them all to join her on an away mission to a class 'T' nebula in the Delta Flyer. Anxiety strikes when the know-it-all Harren gets sensor data very wrong, Tal is so worried about being wrong she can't get anything right, and an intrusive alien gives Telfer his first real medical emergency.

Good Episode with Great Visuals
26 April 2007 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

This episode involves Janeway realizing that 3 of the crew have pretty much "fallen through the cracks". One is an anti-social jerk with a high IQ, one is a hypochondriac and the other is a Bajoran girl who always struggles with the math and has little self-confidence.

Under normal circumstances these 3 would have been transfered off the ship, but since they are stuck in the Delta Quadrant, they are also stuck on Voyager. Realizing that all 3 of them have never been on an away mission, Janeway takes them on the Delta Flyer on a routine study mission. As you can imagine, things don't go according to plan.

The FX shots in this episode stand are really well-done. Someone put in some over-time getting the neat close-ups of Voyager in the opening bit.

This episode also features a cameo from guitarist Tom Morello (Audioslave & Rage Against the Macine) as crewman Mitchell.
