In looking for something meatier in his newly established "A Briefing with Neelix" ship-wide broadcasts, Neelix learns of Tom Paris' immanent departure from Voyager. Shortly after Tom disembarks for a Talaxian convoy, problems develop with Voyager's warp engines, and word of Tom's abduction by the Kazon-Nistrim arrives. The swiftness of Tom's capture leads Neelix to suspect a traitor aboard Voyager, but his theory finds little support. Nonetheless, journalistic gumption leads him to press on and, with Lt. Hogan's help, brings to light a stunning suspect - Tom Paris himself. Written by statmanjeff

Did You Know?


Abdullah II King Of Jordan: The then-Crown Prince of Jordan, a huge fan of the Star Trek franchise, asked the producers to let him appear at least once. He is seen playing a crew member in the sciences division in an early scene standing before Ensign Harry Kim just before Neelix appears to talk to Kim. Because he is not a member of the Screen Actors Guild he was not allowed to speak any lines. See more »


Neelix, asked to continue his investigation by Captain Janeway, returns to Engineering where he asks to once again see the communication logs. Lieutenant Torres asks Lieutenant Hogan to help Neelix retrieve the logs. From there, Neelix and Hogan discover that someone has been sending unauthorized communications through the ship's power grid via the waste energy, yet Hogan sees no reason to notify his superiors of the new discovery.

User Reviews

Since all current reviews are marked with spoilers...
15 December 2019 | by GreyHunterSee all my reviews

None of the reviews appear on the episode's main page. I would like to rectify this. In this episode, we see the resolutions of two ongoing B-plots, which actually converge to create an overarching resolution. My only criticism is that the suspense could have been handled better by not identifying the principle phenomenon or possibly item or maybe source or conceivably character in a certain unnamed B-plot until this episode, thus allowing the viewer to wonder along with the Voyager crew itself regarding the identity of the item or character or phenomenon or item in question, thus ratcheting up the suspense with regards to this unnamed aspect of a particular B-plot. Other than that, this episode was either good or not. I won't spoil anyone by revealing which here.

There, that was as spoiler-free as I could make it.
