A Hirogen ship meets up with Voyager but doesn't attack. It itself has been attacked and bears a lone and severely injured survivor. In taking him aboard for treatment, Voyager also acquires the successful attacker - a member of species 8472. The crew team up with the Hirogen to hunt it down, but circumstances bring out Capt. Janeway's desire to apply compassion, which puts her in opposition with the Hirogen and with seven of Nine.
