An unavoidable poisonous nebula forces the entire crew into stasis chambers - all except the unaffected Doctor and Seven of Nine, who must fight her nearly life long "collective" mentality to handle being alone for over a month while combating ship-wide failures, a strange alien intruder, and her own fears of individuality and loneliness.

Did You Know?


Doctor: "If you had even the slightest sense of humor, you'd realize I was making a small joke." Seven: "Very small." This is reminiscent of a scene between Chekov and Spock in Star Trek: The Trouble with Tribbles (1967). See more »


When Tom Paris is sleepwalking, he should have had any burning marks on his body or suffocate just like Harry Kim did. See more »


[last lines]
Tom Paris: Just think - we could have died in those coffins.
Seven of Nine: I suspect you would have found a way out before that, Lieutenant.
Harry Kim: What do you mean?
Seven of Nine: Lieutenant Paris refused to stay confined. On four separate occasions, the Doctor and I had to put him back into his stasis unit.
Harry Kim: Were you, um... locked in dark closets or something as a child?
Tom Paris: I just don't like closed places. I never have, I-I don't know why.
Seven of Nine: Perhaps you dislike being alone.

As Voyager nears some nebula, it begins exerting a weird effect on everyone except Seven of Nine and the Doctor. However, to go around it would add a year to their trip, so Captain Goody-Goody (just wanted to see if you were looking) decides to have everyone placed in stasis while Seven commands the ship with help from the Doc. While this sounds like a reasonably sane idea, things don't work out so well, as soon she begins seeing and hearing things and she might not be able to do it all by herself. Is this real? Are there aliens on the ship or projecting these weird images? Will they make it through this nebula?

Despite being almost a one-woman show, this is a pretty good episode. I particularly liked the conversations between her and the crew during the worst of the hallucinations--they were darkly funny. Worth seeing and unique. And, I appreciate the character development in Seven.
