Storyline

Voyager has set a course for home, repairs are underway, and it's time to pick personnel to fill vital crew positions. Tempers are turbulent as the Starfleet crew absorbs the undisciplined Maquis. Neelix finds his place as chef and Kes builds the airponics bay. Paris does double duty as Conn Officer and Field Medic. Chakotay recommends Torres for Chief Engineer, but Janeway isn't convinced she can exhibit the professionalism of a Starfleet officer. All must put opinions aside when Voyager mounts a rescue of a ship caught in a quantum singularity, only to find the ship in distress is Voyager itself. Written by Meribor

A promotion for B'Elanna
8 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having introduced the characters in the opening double episode it is now time to see how the combined Star Fleet/Maquis crew will interact; at first it looks as if they will not work well at all when B'Elanna seriously injures Star Fleet engineer Lieutenant Carey who is the captain's preferred choice to be the next chief engineer. Chakotay has other ideas however and recommends that B'Elanna should be given the job. When Voyager finds itself caught on the event horizon of a black hole it calls for radical ideas and B'Elanna's successful ideas lead to her being given the job despite objections from some of the Star Fleet crew.

This episode lacks the excitement of the series opener but features good character development for B'Elanna, we also see the beginning of Kes's friendship with the Doctor when she asks for his help in setting up a hydroponics bay and unlike everybody else she treats him like a real person.
