  • Janeway takes the ship into a nebula to replenish the ship's power supply. Members of the crew introduce each other to their recreational activities.

    Having such a thin storyline to work with, telewriters (is that even a word?) Michael Piller and Tom Szollosi figured they might as well use the time to look into how the crew are adapting to being stranded on the other side of the galaxy. Most of it is just filler dialogue ("My, Captain, is that a new shade of lipstick you're wearing?") but there are some humorous as well as interesting bits, the best of which being our first introduction to the Chez Sandrine bar, which would later become the place to be whenever they wanted to avoid building a new set. You may also notice that Neelix acts slightly out of character in this episode. So all in all, if you're trying to get the good side of star trek, skip this episode, or just skip straight to chapter four.
