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.

With the Doctor being as thorough as he is, one would think it would have been a smart idea to replicate one more stasis bed just in case Seven of Nine needed it. See more »


Chakotay: My concern isn't about going into stasis; it's about who you're leaving in charge.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: You're worried about Seven.
Chakotay: Maybe you need to step outside yourself for a minute. Look at the fact that here's someone who's butted horns with you from the moment she came on board, who disregards authority and actively disobeys orders when she doesn't agree with them.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: And this is the person I'm giving responsibility for the lives of this entire crew. I suppose you want me to tell you I'm not crazy.
Chakotay: In a nutshell.

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.
