Storyline

Voyager encounters the Federation Starship Equinox, a Starfleet vessel trapped in the Delta Quadrant by the same alien who brought Voyager there. Equinox is heavily damaged and running with a skeleton crew. Happy to have found each other, Voyager assists Equinox in fighting off an non-humanoid alien race attacking them. But Equinox has earned the aliens hostility. Captain Ransom and his crew have been kidnapping and killing the aliens and using their unique physiology to enhance their warp drive. When Janeway imprisons the Equinox crew they stage a revolt. The Equinox EMH commandeers The Doctor's portable emitter and poses as The Doctor aboard Voyager. The cliffhanger leaves Equinox in retreat, with The Doctor and Seven of Nine hostage, and Voyager under attack by the alien race. Written by Meribor

Goofs

On the episode relativity from the same season, admiral Patterson is introducing captain Janeway to the doctor (EMH). Admiral is telling the captain that it's a new system. With this in mind in combination with the supposition that the Equinox is already in the delta Quadrant, it is unlikely that this new system was installed on the Equinox. See more »

Wow...the captain of the Equinox is a real Savage!
28 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode begins with Voyager locating another Federation vessel in the Delta Quadrant. The USS Equinox is in bad shape which is the result from battling some sort of creatures. Exactly what they are and why they were there are hidden from Voyager's crew by the wily folks from Equinox. In fact, a lot is hidden and the meeting at first seems like good news. Eventually, however, Janeway learns that the Prime Directive has been routinely ignored by Captain Ransom (John Savage) and she locks the crew in their quarters until she figures out what to do with these jerks. The Equinox crew, however, has an ace up their sleeve--their holo doctor has no moral qualms about ANYTHING and soon he's set in motion a plan to rescue his morally ambivalent crew members. By the end of the show, these folks have escaped and they've stolen Voyager's deflectors--and left them to the mercy of the creatures angered by Ransom's nasty experiments.

This is a nice episode because too often the Prime Directive and and niceness permeates the show so much, it's nice to have a breath of fresh air...or is it stale air?! Regardless, it sets them up for a nice confrontation which will occur in the second part of this two- parter.
