Neelix (Ethan Phillips) directs the crew to a planet supposedly rich in dilithium, but during an away-team survey, he is attacked by a humanoid alien who surgically removes his lungs. Transported to sick bay, Neelix's only hope is a pair of holographic lungs programmed by the Doctor (Robert Picardo). Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) heads a search for the aliens, the Vidiians, that leads to an asteroid that serves as a base. When confronted, the aliens admit to stealing Neelix's organs, but defend themselves by telling the story of the "phage," a bizarre disease that attacks their people, eating away at their bodies and organs until they are forced to scavenge others as substitutes. The aliens explain to Janeway that they have already transformed the lungs for their own use, but they agree to help Neelix, and perform an emergency lung transplant with a willing donor, Kes (Jennifer Lein).

Stardate 48546.2
The Voyager's sensors detect a nebula emitting a high level of useful omicron particles, and the Captain decides to collect some and do a bit of exploring. Neelix (Ethan Phillips) can't believe Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) entered the nebula, but Kes (Jennifer Lein) speaks up for the romance of exploration until they turn to see globules splattering and attaching themselves to the ship's hull. After sampling the globules, B'Elanna (Roxann Biggs-Dawson) and the Doctor (Robert Picardo) both agree that Voyager is actually inside a life-form. After struggling to escape, they re-enter the living nebula and use a phaser suture to "sew up" the damaged area and avert the crisis.

Stardate 48579.4
Kim (Garrett Wang) and his crewmates can hardly contain their initial excitement when they discover a small wormhole, or tunnel, in space. A probe sent through the narrow passageway reveals that the wormhole is old and about to collapse. But that does not stop a Romulan vessel on the other side of the Alpha Quadrant from discovering the probe. Even though the Romulans are sworn enemies to the Federation, Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) convinces their skeptical captain, Telek, to test a jury-rigged transporter signal to Voyager. When it is realized that Telek came from 20 years in the past, he agrees to relay messages to the crew's loved ones at the appropriate time. Tuvok, after checking computer records, discovers that Telek died four years before he was to send the message. The crew only hopes that the Romulan government forwarded the messages.

Stardate Unknown
Kim (Garrett Wang) and Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) visit the homeworld of the Baneans, a people at war with the nearby Numiri. There they meet with the head of military science, Tolen Ren, to discuss potential scientific advances that may help Voyager find a faster way back to Federation space. Ren's wife, a much younger woman named Lidell, does not make Kim or Paris feel very welcome. Later that night Ren is killed and Paris is blamed for the murder. His Banean sentence: to relive the violent moment of the crime from the victim's perspective for the rest of his life. Only after Tuvok (Tim Russ) mind-melds with Paris is it discovered that a shorter man had murdered Ren. Just who that man was is only detected by Ren's faithful watchdog, Leeka.
