Trivia

The Doctor continues the ongoing Star Trek joke of "I'm a doctor..." with the response of "...not a counter-insurgent". See more »

Goofs

By removing com badges from the entire crew, the universal translator is dismantled; still, everyone speaks English as if it's their native language. While this might make sense for non-human Starfleet officers, it doesn't make sense for Neelix or Kes, who never heard English before joining the crew. See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: What am I supposed to do? Lead a revolt with the gang from Sandrine's? Conjure up holograms of Nathan Hale and Che Guevara? I'm a doctor, not a counterinsurgent.

It's much better than part 1.
16 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is the second part of an enjoyable but dumb first episode. I say dumb because to assume that Voyager was taken by the Kazon means assuming the Federation crew (especially Chakotay) are idiots. Regardless, this follow-up episode is significantly better and well worth seeing.

When the show begins, Voyager has been taken by the Kazon and the crew were ditched on a planet that totally sucks. Why the Kazon didn't just kill them is a big confound, as the Kazon are supposed to be bad and bad people kill hostages....duh. So now it's up to the crew to survive while help MIGHT be on the way.

As for their help, the crew really looks screwed as it consists of some Talaxians (a rather weak and annoying race), Paris in a shuttle, the Doctor (who is, after all, a hologram) and Suder. Suder is a serial killer who has reformed--but now he'll have to channel his old wicked ways to try to regain control of the ship.

Although the eventual triumph of the crew of Voyager (it's a foregone conclusion) is VERY hard to believe, this is an excellent and exciting episode. Well worth seeing even if part one makes far less sense.
