As the Voyager crew endeavors to help a planet bombarded by asteroids, Tuvok and Neelix survive a shuttlecraft crash landing. Together with a motley group of aliens, they repair a mag-lev tether to rise high enough from the surface for Voyager to detect and rescue them all. Unfortunately, emotions run as high as their ascent, and while the group struggles against panic and oxygen deprivation, Neelix and Tuvok openly butt heads, and a traitor walks secretly among them.
Did You Know?
The roof hatch of the mag-lev carriage is opened twice in the upper atmosphere. All air should be blown out, but the characters are not pushed out of the vessel and continue to breathe without difficulty; however, when the main hatch opens a little later (while the carriage is still at the same position), the blow-out effect becomes moderately apparent. Despite being low on oxygen reserves from the beginning, nobody seems to suffer from oxygen deprivation even then. Of course, that comment is based on EARTH's atmosphere and this is an ALIEN world with an unknown atmospheric height. See more
