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.

Well, it looks like you just saved my life. Twice more and we'll be even.
