Storyline

Tha Haakonian Ma'Bor Jetrel hails the Voyager, wishing to speak to Neelix. Neelix refuses to speak to Jetrel, revealing that the Haakonians were the enemy of the Talaxians and Jetrel created the Metreon Cascade, which killed thousands of Talaxians on Rinax, Talax's moon, including Neelix's family. Through the persuasion of Kes and Janeway, Neelix finally agrees to listen to Jetrel, who wants to scan Talaxians who helped rescue any survivors of Rinax in case they developed a blood disease from exposure to high levels of Metreon isotopes. While he still doesn't like it, Neelix eventually agrees to allow Jetrel to run some tests and discovers that he does indeed have the blood disease. When Voyager returns to Rinax so that Jetrel can try to find a cure, Neelix reveals to Kes that he wasn't fighting in the Defense Force when the Metreon Cascade went off like he said. He was hiding from them since he believed the war was unjust, leading him to believe later that he was just being a coward.... Written by Anonymous

Can you ever or forgive a mass murderer? Probably not...
5 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this episode begins, Voyager is being hailed by a ship. No biggie. However, when it turns out that the being contacting them is Jetrel, things get interesting. This is because the Talaxians consider him a war criminal and he's responsible for vaporizing 300,000 of these folks--including Neelix's family. This evil doctor requests to see Neelix--and not surprisingly, Neelix has no interest in seeing the guy. But Jetrel insists--saying that Neelix might be dying of Metremia and he needs to test him to be certain. However, there is DEFINITELY more to this than Jetrel is saying--and he has an underhanded agenda. But what is he up to?!

This episode has lots of philosophical and existential ramifications, that's for sure. And, the parallel to the makers of the atomic bomb clearly are present. Overall, worth seeing and pretty interesting stuff.
