  • Voyager tracks down the mate of the alien that brought them to the Delta quadrant.

    Finally, after numerous episodes, the overall plot of the series moves forward. When Kes and the Doctor notice that the remains of the alien (the 'custodian') that brought Voyager to the delta quadrant begin reacting to something, it is investigated and found to react to the energy field of the mate of the original, whose name eventually turns out to be 'Susperia'. Using this as a tracking device, Voyager tracks down a similar array to the one that brought them to the delta quadrant in the first place, and find it populated with Ocampa. Kes meets the head Ocampa from the array, and learns of her psychic potential, and the crew of Voyager also learns that its reputation proceeds them - they are thought to be dangerous, bloodthirsty, and to have killed the 'custodian'. This was not a particularly satisfying episode, as there was little interaction with Susperia before she flees the ship, however, Janeway makes it clear that Voyager will continue to search for Susperia as a means to return home, so it is obvious the alien will make an appearance later in the series.
