While on an away mission, Chakotay finds symbols and structures similar to ones he saw when he was 15 on an expedition with his father on Earth, 70,000 light-years away. When the weather, plants and animals of the planet seem to be opposed to the presence of Voyager and it's crew, Chakotay seeks a way to gain the trust of the inhabitants by embracing the teaching of his father and his tribe. Meanwhile, The Doctor programs himself with flu symptoms in order to empathize with his patients. Written by

From the day you came out of your mother - upside down - I knew the Spirits have chosen you to be a contrary.
No one chooses for me. I choose my own way. And if that makes me a contrary, I'll have to live with it.
If you have no spirits to guide you, I fear you will lose your way.
