I enjoy these sort of episodes, where relationships on board are explored and we get to know the crew. There is so much that could be written, just of normal stuff going on in their day to day job on board Voyager. There shouldn't be any need to constantly be in danger to keep viewers interested.
Sadly though they mix in with this another identity, and hard to believe that of the first few episodes they have now entered two "nebula" of sort. What is explored here is the confusing state they are all in. Kathryn is struggling with her mixed feeling of leadership. Does being inaccessible almost stand offish serve her here so far away from home. Tom and Harry are wondering similar things, not sure if they should be too friendly with their captain. The friendship of Kathryn and Chakotay is starting to form via their discussion about his animal guide.
Neelix is a bit more confusing though, as he seems to swing between happy and unhappy within minutes. Lovely episode that allowed itself to look at the crew. Hope there will be many of those.
