Chakotay goes off in a shuttle to honor his dead father. However, he is attacked for being in Kazon-Ogla space by a young Kazon wanting to earn his warrior name. Chakotay defeats the Kazon vessel and saves the young boy Kar by transporting him aboard his shuttle craft before Kar's vessel explodes. When Chakotay tries to return his prisoner to a Kazon vessel, Kar begs to be killed just before they're taken captive. After Kar reveals that he will now never earn his warrior name, Chakotay escapes from the Kazon vessel, and Kar goes with him. While running away, Chakotay's shuttle crashes on a moon full of booby traps used to train young Kazons. Federation and Kazon must work together, both as Chakotay and Kar seek to survive and as their respective crews seek to find them. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


The episode was partly written as an attempt to remedy the fact that Voyager's producers felt Chakotay had been underused in the first season. See more »


Chakotay does not have his medicine bag on him when he is beamed back to Voyager. It was either on the Kazon ship or in the shuttle that exploded, yet he uses it when he is back on Voyager. See more »


Kar: I know that you're in my territory. And if you want to live to become that wrinkled old man, you're going to have to do what *I* say.
Chakotay: Well, it looks like you just saved my life. Twice more and we'll be even.

User Reviews

It's an average Star Trek voyager episode
15 February 2021 | by brianjohnson-20043See all my reviews

It might even be an above average Chakoate episode and an above average episode from the first couple seasons. But that doesn't make it a fabulous voyager episode IMO.

Probably the most memorable thing about this episode is that Aron Eisenberg from DS9 guest stars, and does a great job playing a young Kazon alien. It's a 7/10 which is about where I rank an average episode of a show like Voyager.
