Neelix becomes very agitated as Voyager begins a full shutdown prior to entering a peculiar astronomical nebula. Left in charge of calming the recently rescued Borg children, Neelix encourages the young ones around a 24th century "campfire" for stories. Neelix recounts a story from Voyager's recent past that is strangely reminiscent of the current situation. Written by tafkas

Tuvok says he will only sweat at "350 degrees Kelvin" rather than the correct "350 Kelvin." Several characters have made this same error throughout the Star Trek universe. See more »

Better than I expected.
4 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When this episode begins, Neelix is telling the children a ghost story. Now considering it has Neelix AND kids, it seemed to have two strikes against it--yet it turns out to be a pretty good show.

The story Neelix ends up telling isn't really a story at all--it's what's been happening on the ship. But he phrases it like a story and the kids relax. It turns out that the ship is experiencing lots of random electronic problems. However, after a while, it is obvious they aren't random at all--and soon IMPORTANT systems begin malfunctioning. How the Captain deals with all this is surprisingly intelligent and the episode, to me, is quite creative. It manages to combine Kids, Neelix and a ship-bound episode into a decent show and the ghost story style really helps.
