Outwitted by Kazon raiders who seized their ship, Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) and the Voyager crew have been abandoned on the planet Hanon IV. While the captain and her crew fight to survive the planet's harsh conditions, two Starfleet members struggle to stay alive aboard Voyager. Unbeknownst to the Kazon, the doctor (Robert Picardo) and Ensign Lon Suder are still on the ship. The doctor knows they must devise a plan to wrest control of Voyager from the Kazon. But Suder, who has been undergoing rehabilitation for his violent tendencies, is plagued by self-doubts. Can Suder face his inner demons and battle the Kazon...or are Janeway and her crew doomed to die on Hanon IV?

Tuvok (Tim Russ) has a dark secret in his past - one that might destroy his future. When Tuvok experiences mental pain and dizziness, the doctor (Robert Picardo) believes the cause may be a repressed traumatic memory. With his neural system starting to degrade, Tuvok asks Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) to mind-meld with him, hoping that together they can bring the memory into consciousness. The mind-meld takes Tuvok and Janeway to the site of Tuvok's first Starfleet assignment - the Starship Excelsior, commanded by Captain Hikaru Sulu (George Takei). Tuvok clashes with Sulu, objecting to their mission: an attempt to rescue Captain Kirk and Doctor McCoy from the Klingon homeworld. As the Excelsior heads into battle, the mind-meld goes amiss. Suddenly, Tuvok is in grave danger...and Janeway is visible to the Excelsior crew.

The Akritirian prison is infamous throughout the quadrant. There are no doors, no windows and seemingly no way out. What's more, every prisoner is fitted with a neural clamp that heightens aggression and turns captive against captive, even if the prisoners are friends. Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) and Harry Kim (Garrett Wang) the two shipmates - suspected of being Open Sky rebels - struggle to keep hope and each other alive after they're cast into the hellish prison. Critical to survival is their mastery of the electronic clamp they each wear. Control it, or it controls them. Meanwhile, Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) develops a bold plan to free the men, bringing former space scavenger Neelix's (Ethan Phillips) ship out of storage and deploying it on a special mission.

Stardate 50252.3
Is there a doctor in the quadrant? Normally, the Doctor (Robert Picardo), an Emergency Medical hologram, is able to handle the crew's curative needs. But now it's Doctor who needs doctoring. His overworked systems and memory are rapidly degrading into nonexistence. The only cure might be found via a holographic recreation of Dr. Zimmerman (Robert Picardo), who seems to have created Doctor in his own sometimes pompous image. While Kes (Jennifer Lien) oversees the medical crisis, starship command confronts a menace that could blast everyone into nonexistence. Swarms of ships bent on destroying Voyager are locked onto the hull and are using transporter technology to beam shock troops aboard.
