Thanks to Malon interference sticking a Voyager probe on a gas giant, Tom spearheads the construction of a new shuttle - the Delta Flyer - but B'Elanna isn't enthused. She isn't enthused about anything, even when a second Malon ship arrives and begins building their own rescue ship, creating an old fashioned space race with the probe as the prize. Chakotay means to discover B'Elanna's problem. Written by statmanjeff

User Reviews

You'd think psychotherapy in the 24th century would be better than this....
25 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When this episode begins, Lt. Torres is doing some sort of insane heart-pumping stuff in the holodeck with the safety protocols turned off! In fact, through the episode she's doing crazy stuff all because she's a sense of nothingness--feeling nothing. Her behavior obviously is odd and she's detached. You'd THINK the crew would notice but it takes a while. You'd also think that there would be some way for her to work through this. According to the show, the best thing to do is work!

As far as work goes, several crew members are working like crazy trying to build a new type shuttle that can go into the atmosphere of a gas giant. They'll need it to get one of Voyager's probes. And, they need to hurry because the $#@! Malon are attempting to get to the probe first.

This is an okay episode and nothing more. The psychological angle is a bit but otherwise not exactly one to keep your attention throughout.
