  • Harry gets involved with a girl agains the captains wish. The Voyager gets dragged in to a struggle between freedom fighters and their society.

    Character development Harry Kim. One of the other reviewers commented on Harrys behavour as out of character. that was just what this episode was about. he said it him self in the end, hes not the young wonderboy ensign who sign on 4 (or is it 5?) years ago. He has evolved. and you cant conmplain about a character evolving, can you? espessially when we talk about Harry Kim.

    Otherwise this is an ok episode. better than the grade suggests. Another intresting subject in this episode is the way starfleet see "intimate relationship". What do they really put into that definition? Most of the seniors offcers has had love intrests with ailiens. Especially Chakotay, see "unforgettable", last season, where he too does what Harry did this episode. And we have seen a lot of kisses. Does kisses qualify as intimate relations? where is the line? There is something to think about!
