Voyager has set a course for home, repairs are underway, and it's time to pick personnel to fill vital crew positions. Tempers are turbulent as the Starfleet crew absorbs the undisciplined Maquis. Neelix finds his place as chef and Kes builds the airponics bay. Paris does double duty as Conn Officer and Field Medic. Chakotay recommends Torres for Chief Engineer, but Janeway isn't convinced she can exhibit the professionalism of a Starfleet officer. All must put opinions aside when Voyager mounts a rescue of a ship caught in a quantum singularity, only to find the ship in distress is Voyager itself. Written by Meribor

Good Action and Necessary Character Development
8 August 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm afraid that my lack of scientific knowledge leaves me a bit confused by the various spacial obstructions encountered by these starships. In this one, there is an anomaly that has to do with the time/space continuum. It presents a formidable obstacle for the a ship that has just found its way out of a previous engagement. The focus here, however, is the role of chief engineer being coveted by Torres, who lets her emotions get the best of her at times. The episode starts with her breaking the nose of the current chief of engineering. This is a well constructed episode, demanding that Voyager be used as a battering ram. Good human encounters, but it is still pretty preachy. Like Kirk in he original, we often pause and listen to the Captain deliver something pithy.
