Captain Janeway goes to Deflector Control to find the place on fire. Letting a fire go in a confined environment, especially as damaged as the ship was, could wind up depleting oxygen faster than if it was extinguished. Further, there is no fire suppression system in or around the immediate area. No sprinklers, no fire extinguishers, not even a way to vent atmosphere so the fire suffocates. See more »


Annorax: In the meantime, my mission must continue.
Chakotay: You don't have the right!
Annorax: To fight for what is mine? That's not for you to decide. Only time can pronounce judgment against me.

Excellent but with one small weakness....
21 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second part of an unusually violent two-parter. In the Trek shows, two-part episodes usually are more violent and exciting than normal, but this one is even more so.

When the last episode ended, Paris and Chakotay were taken prisoner by a temporal ship run by a Captain Ahab-like guy, Annorax. Annorax is trying to change time in order to undo horrible things his ship did hundreds of years ago. Since one of the ship's first acts accidentally resulted in erasing all memory of Annorax's family, he's been making changes in time again and again and again--all in an attempt to undo his earlier change. But each change ends up causing more havoc and erasing various species. Clearly Annorax and his crew are playing god!

In the meantime, Voyager is a mess with a skeleton crew of only about a half dozen. Given its condition, there seems to be no way they'll ever make it back to the Delta Quadrant--let alone survive more than a few months at best.

Can all this somehow be undone? Well of course--because this went on for seven seasons! Because of this, the viewer KNOWS all this will somehow get undone--a weakness in this show. But given the action and the complexity of Annorax as a villain, it's very much worth seeing and a nice change from the usually too nice episodes of the series.
