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.

After Tom Paris is placed back in stasis after removing himself, the Doctor comments to Seven of Nine, who had taken a remark of his literally, that "If you had even the slightest sense of humor, you'd realize I was making a small joke." She replies with, "Very small." This is reminiscent of a scene between Chekov and Spock in the Original Series episode Star Trek: The Trouble with Tribbles
(1967). See more
The Nebula where this installment takes place is referred to as Mutara instead of Mutara-class as would be the proper designation. Presumably the Mutara Nebula where Kirk battled Khan would be located in the Alpha quadrant. Since Voyager is nowhere near the Alpha quadrant this nebula should be Mutara-class. Either way, the name Mutara refers to any nebula that possesses properties similar to that of the Mutara Nebula. This means the Nebula would emit the same static discharge as seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
resulting in no shields and limited tactical. See more
