Voyager gets trapped in "chaotic space," a kind of Bermuda Triangle, where sensors are useless and a straight line sends them running in circles. In an attempt to relay to Voyager that they are not welcome, the inhabitants of chaotic space activate a genetic defect in Commander Chakotay, who interprets the warnings and instructions in the form of hallucinations including his Grandfather and his boxing training at Starfleet Academy.

Once again, Ray Walston
reprises his role as Boothby (the grounds-keeper from Starfleet Academy), this time as a holodeck character. Oddly enough, Walston has never actually played the real Boothby in the Voyager series - only as duplicates... a holodeck character in this episode, and, as a Species 8472 copy in Star Trek: Voyager: In the Flesh
(1998). See more
