Storyline

Voyager encounters a graviton ellipse, a phenomenon that emerges from subspace on rare occasions. The anomaly engulfed a manned vessel during a Mars mission in 2032 and Chakotay is determined to retrieve the debris from inside the ellipse. Chakotay, Paris and Seven take the Delta Flyer in, but when an asteroid strikes, Chakotay, obsessed with retrieving the module, disobeys Janeway's order to leave. The collision renders the Flyer flightless as the ellipse prepares to return to subspace. Written by Meribor

Trivia

The title comes from Neil Armstrong's first words on the moon: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." (Sometimes this is incorrectly reported as "...for man..." rather than the correct "...for a man...") See more »

Goofs

When they first find the anomaly, ensign Kim says that if it gets any closer, it will start ripping off hull plaiting. The ship is shown later on to be much closer to the anomaly without any shield modifications or damage. See more »

Quotes

Lieutenant John Kelly: Ares IV, mission record, October 23rd. Startin' to feel like Jonah. How long was he in the belly of that whale? Three days? I got him beat by a day or two already.

Misunderstood Themes
14 September 2011 | by (Denver) – See all my reviews

This is a misunderstood episode. One reviewer has said it would be expected if Tom acted irrationally but not Chakotay. It was explained that the Mars missions were a passion of his so yes he would be wanting the module and put it ahead of their well being. Meribor another reviewer says "And Seven brings the body back all for them to bury him in space. I think Kelly would've rather stayed with his ship, his dream." Anyone who has been in the service will know that the burial at the end is a high honor. The speech shows that seven is growing as an individual and connected with someone else. This episode is deep on many levels. You have to have some sort of analytic mind rather than "oh it's a show that makes you think. I won't like it." These people are explorers and will put their lives in danger to gain knowledge.
