Storyline

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.

Quotes

Seven of Nine: Commander. The Captain's plan B. I've calculated the inertial force required to divert the freighter. Plan C - shield modulations that should reduce the structural damage of Voyager. It will also help protect the crew against theta radiation poisoning, if we fail.
Tuvok: A wise precaution. With any luck, we won't be needing it.
Seven of Nine: I didn't think Vulcans believed in luck.
Tuvok: As a rule, we don't. But serving with Captain Janeway has taught me otherwise.
Seven of Nine: She does seem to succeed more often than random chance ...

Those stupid Malons...
28 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Malons might just be one of the stupidest races you'll ever see on the Trek shows. After all, they spread toxic waste all over the quadrant and don't seem to care in the least. So, when the ship encounters a damaged Malon freighter, you know that Voyager is going to have a difficult time. It turns out that this Malon ship is about to explode--and this will wipe out everything within several light-years. Naturally, you learn that Voyager's warp drive is inexplicably offline and so there's no other option but to stay and try to fix this ship or deflect it into a nearby sun. But there are some difficulties--most of the Malon crew are dead and there might just be a monster aboard their ship that is causes all these problems!

This is a decent episode but the ending involving Torres was supposed to be important because Torres tried so hard not to be violent. However, in this situation, she seemed really, really inept--as violence was DEFINITELY called for in this case. Still, it is worth seeing.
