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

In the opening scene, John Kelly seems to be referred by rank twice. The first time, they call him "lieutenant". A few sentences later, they call him "commander". Kelly was the mission commander, holding the rank of lieutenant. Both forms of address are accurate. Whether or not one would be used more than the other is another matter. The rank of Commander is derived from this. See more
This anomaly is as old as anything we've ever encountered. I could spend a lifetime studying the things it's collected.
