The Fight

Voyager gets trapped in "chaotic space," a kind of Bermuda Triangle, where sensors are useless and a straight line sends them running in circles. In an attempt to relay to Voyager that they are not welcome, the inhabitants of chaotic space activate a genetic defect in Commander Chakotay, who interprets the warnings and instructions in the form of hallucinations including his grandfather and his boxing training at Starfleet Academy.

While inside chaotic space, Voyager deploys a stationary beacon. After three hours, Voyager re-encounters the beacon in the same fashion that the USS Enterprise-D did while in the Nagilum's void in TNG: "Where Silence Has Lease." See more »

Chakotay: [Chakotay is in hysterics and lying on a bio-bed] NO! Make them STOP!
The Doctor: [to Seven] Anything?
Seven of Nine: Nothing of relevance. His neural pathways are still fluctuating.
Tom Paris: Doc! Can't you do something? Look how much he's suffering.
The Doctor: If I sedate him we could lose any chance of making contact with the aliens!
Chakotay: Get them OUT!
The Doctor: Commander, can you hear me? Focus on the sound of my voice!
Chakotay: I can't understand them! They won't SYOP TALKING!

Sort of harkens to the original....
24 May 2019 | by schlagzeugplayerSee all my reviews

Another episode w Chakotay as the principle character. Which is good because there could've been more w his story. The Native American to Maquis is a cool connection. This episode deals w boxing as a metaphor for communication. I'm not going to go into more it would spoil fast. But it does harken to the original ST in it's character play . This is a message to the reviewer who refers to 7 of 9 as umm, 7 of 69....pretty crude to use in a other wise excellent review. " Resistance is Futile ". But as far as this episode it's a little confusing but enjoy the writing.
