Try to get past the goofy style of speech and you'll find a good episode.
20 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, you see that Chakotay was shot down in his shuttle and he's rescued by some soldiers who talk really, really strangely. It's so strange that it's distracting and I could see someone being turned off by this. Well, don't...the show will get better.

Soon you learn that these people are at war with a race they call 'nemesis' and according to them nemesis is simply awful and evil. Over time, Chakotay gets to see himself just how ugly and nasty the brutish nemesis can be.

All during this time, Voyager and their crew are looking for Chakotay--with the help of these supposedly ugly, nasty and brutish folks. Oddly, however, they are very different from the folks Chakotay has come to know. So what REALLY is happening here?!

The answer to all this is terrific--and it makes this an excellent episode. See it...and ignore the goofy language.
