Did You Know?


This episode was not intended as a season finale, and thus does not include any of the usual cliffhanger endings or stunning new developments typical of Star Trek season-enders. See more »


Despite the fact that the four Maquis malcontents are supposed to be refusing to follow Starfleet protocols, when Chakotay first confronts them, Dalby addresses Chakotay by his Starfleet rank of commander, rather than by name. See more »


Neelix: I feel that my services as morale officer are required.
Lieutenant Tuvok: I assure you, you are wrong.
Neelix: Oh, really? Hm... One, no cup of tea; two, no PADD; three, you're sitting on the opposite side from usual. All of that tells me, you've got something on your mind. What tells me that it's making you miserable is that cloud of doom that's rising from you like a ground fog.
Lieutenant Tuvok: I cannot imagine that there are visible emanations which allow you to interpret my mood. You are making wild assumptions.

Certainly watchable but pretty ordinary
24 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It becomes apparent to Tuvok that the Maquis are not fully (and understandably to me if not Tuvok) integrated into the crew. Janeway's solution is to have Tuvok train four Maquis selected by Chakotay in the ways of Star Fleet. The Maquis selected are very unhappy about this and refuse to participate until Chakotay brings them round with a demonstration of "the Maquis way." While the boot camp like training is going on, Voyager is being threatened by catastrophe as the bioneural gel packs that operate all of the ship's systems (including life-support) are breaking down. Since the Tuvok character is one of my least favorites, it is not surprising that I found this show basically ordinary despite the fact that the especially bitter Maquis Crewman Dalby was both believable and interesting. The two best bits in the show were when the Doctor talks to the gel pack and the brief interlude of Janeway in the "ancient English" halonovel. The episode does see further development of the Tuvok character.
