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

Quotes

Captain Kathryn Janeway: Space. Literally it means 'nothing' - a vacuum between stars and planets. But by the same token, it means everything. It's what connects all our worlds - Vulcan, Qo'noS, Talax, Earth. Centuries ago, mankind sent its first wave of explorers into that void - astronauts like Mr. Kelly. They paved the way for the first colonies, the first starships, for those of us who've made space our home. We commend the spirit and the bravery of Lieutenant John Mark Kelly, as we commit his body... to space. He ...

Rather sad and poignant at times.
1 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins in the early 21 century. A space flight from Earth to Mars is interrupted when a 'gravatron ellipse' appears and sucks the ship out of known existence. Now, centuries later, Voyager comes upon the wreckage of this old ship and Chakotay is determined to salvage the craft--or at least what's left of it. However, when the ellipse appears once again, Chakotay might just get himself and others killed.

This is a bittersweet and enjoyable type of episode with a lot of sad nostalgia associated with it. Phillip Morris stars as the fated captain of the old Nasa ship.

By the way, early in the show the Doctor talks about Arakkis Prime. Arakkis is an inside joke, as it's from Frank Herbert's classic sci- fi novel, "Dune".
