Temporarily shielded from the alien attack, Janeway orders that their first priority is to find the Equinox, stop Ransom and recover Seven of Nine. Chakotay disagrees but obeys. Voyager finds Equinox and captures a few of its crew members before they escape again. Chakotay stops Janeway within seconds of sacrificing the Equinox crewman and Janeway relieves him of duty. Meanwhile, the Equinox EMH, posing as Voyager's doctor, keeps in contact with Ransom. The Doctor, on-board the Equinox with his ethical subroutines disabled, performs surgery on Seven that will extract information but destroy her brain. Ransom has a change of heart and decides to surrender to Janeway. In disagreement, his crew stages a mutiny. Janeway finds the Ankari, a race that can mediate with the attacking aliens, makes contact with them and agrees to turn over the Equinox in exchange for Voyager's safety.

The USS Equinox is a Nova-class starship. According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual", the Nova-class starship was originally considered as a successor to the Galaxy-class starship, and as a possible design for the Enterprise-E which first appeared in Star Trek: First Contact.

In the previous episode, Equinox: Part 1, Captain Janeway states that a Nova class starship has a max speed of warp 8. Yet in this episode she states that without the enhanced warp drive, the Equinox is only capable of a maximum of warp 6. She is likely referring to Equinox's capabilities in her current condition.
