Voyager responds to a distress call of a heavily-damaged Malon freighter. Torres, Neelix, Chakotay, and the only 2 surviving Malon have 6 hours to stop a theta-radiation fallout which will destroy everything within a 3 light-year radius. The away-team must clear radiation section-by-section to reach the control room, and along the way they deal with unstable airlocks and the Vihaar, a Malon boogeyman who is more malicious than mythical.

Did You Know?
It is not explained how Voyager encountered the Malon, tens of thousands of light years, from where they were first encountered in "Night" and "Extreme risk". The previous encounters with the Malon were before Voyager used the slipstreem drive in "Timeless", and the transwarp coil in "Dark Frontier", to cover the distance that would have normally taken 25 years to cover at normal warp speeds. Either Malon ships are faster, which is unlikely considering their less advanced technology, or they have access to another subspace vortex, like the one seen in "Night". See more
