A Voyager shuttle, manned by Lt. Cmdr. Tuvok, Ensign Paris and The Doctor and pulled into a subspace gravity well, crashes on a Class "D" planet existing within it. With the shuttle too damaged to fly, the away team befriends Noss, an alien woman who crashed on the planet several seasons before them. As weeks pass, the survivors grow close. Noss learns English and teaches Tuvok and Paris how to survive the other aliens and hunt for food. Noss finds herself in love with Tuvok and frustrated that he will not allow his emotions to love her back. Through a series of flashbacks, we see a young, rebellious Tuvok who was in love and fought against traditional Vulcan teachings. Back on Voyager, only hours have passed since the ship lost contact with the shuttle. Janeway and the crew must find a way to rescue their shipmates before a local alien ship closes the phenomenon permanently. Written by Meribor

Did You Know?


The first of two times that Voyager encounters a planet with a time differential; time passes on the planet faster than it does in the rest of space. The second time was Star Trek: Voyager: Blink Of An Eye (2000)(#6.12). See more »


Supposedly trapped for weeks, neither Tom nor Tuvok needs a haircut when they return to Voyager. See more »


Tom Paris: You know something? I always thought that beneath that cold Vulcan exterior lay a... even colder Vulcan interior; but now, I'm convinced you're a hopeless romantic.
Tuvok: There is no need to insult me, Mr. Paris.

Voyager crew members trapped in gravity well
27 March 2007 | by the-hfoSee all my reviews

Voyager crew members Tuvok and Paris are returning from an away mission. While en route these Starfleet officers and their shuttle craft is caught in a mysterious vortex in deep space. The two and their spacecraft are drawn forcefully into the astronomical phenomenon that has suddenly appeared. An ally, in Chattanooga, Tennessee native Lori Petty, Robin Williams' kooky Cadillac Man girlfriend, offers stoic Tuvok a chance to revisit his early Vulcan training. Always suspicious Captain Janeway searches diligently for the missing spacecraft. But, the discovery of the phenomenon does not necessarily mean the rescue of the crew.
