Captain Kathryn Janeway: I'm curious, Seven. What do you think about all this? Messages, the possibility of getting home?
Seven of Nine: It lacks any emotional resonance for me. I've never even been to Earth.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You realize you may have family there.
Seven of Nine: ...That had not occurred to me.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You could have cousins, grandparents... There might be more emotional resonance than you think.

The success of the Doctor's mission in the last episode is obvious when Voyager begins receiving letters from home via the same relay network that they just used. However, the letters arrive in drips and drabs--which really makes no sense considering today we can transmit dozens or thousands of messages in small data packets. Why in the 24th century they should receive a few letters at a time is a bit funny considering how much technology has improved since this episode was made. Perhaps they were using old 2400 baud modems! As for the letters, some bring wonderful news from home, some bad news and some folks get no letters at all.

Unfortunately for the crew, a warlike and very large race, the Hirogens, have discovered the ship because of these messages and now these folks are looking for a fight. At first they take Tuvok and Seven of Nine while they are in a shuttle. And when Voyager stops to examine some ancient device, the Hirogen are in hot pursuit. Fortunately, the Hirogens are a pretty stupid race as well!

This is a very good episode complete with a new baddie which will be further plaguing Voyager. Well worth seeing.
