Storyline

Voyager encounters the Federation Starship Equinox, a Starfleet vessel trapped in the Delta Quadrant by the same alien who brought Voyager there. Equinox is heavily damaged and running with a skeleton crew. Happy to have found each other, Voyager assists Equinox in fighting off an non-humanoid alien race attacking them. But Equinox has earned the aliens hostility. Captain Ransom and his crew have been kidnapping and killing the aliens and using their unique physiology to enhance their warp drive. When Janeway imprisons the Equinox crew they stage a revolt. The Equinox EMH commandeers The Doctor's portable emitter and poses as The Doctor aboard Voyager. The cliffhanger leaves Equinox in retreat, with The Doctor and Seven of Nine hostage, and Voyager under attack by the alien race. Written by Meribor

Trivia

The USS Equinox is a Nova-class starship. According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) Technical Manual", the Nova-class starship was originally considered as a successor to the Galaxy-class starship, and as a possible design for the Enterprise-E which first appeared in Star Trek: First Contact (1996).

Goofs

The Equinox was brought to the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker before Voyager did. The Caretaker was not able to send Voyager back because the Caretaker was dying and there was simply "no time" to send them back to the Alpha Quadrant. With this in mind you could say that the Caretaker should have been able to send the Equinox back to the Alpha Quadrant. See more »

Quotes

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I couldn't help but notice, your crew calls you by your first name.
Captain Rudy Ransom: When you've been in the trenches as long as we have, rank and protocol are luxuries. Besides, we're a long way from Starfleet Command.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: I know the feeling.
Captain Rudy Ransom: You seem to run a pretty tight ship.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: We've been known to let our hair down from time to time. But I find that maintaining protocol reminds us of where we came from, and hopefully where we're going.

Wow...the captain of the Equinox is a real Savage!
28 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode begins with Voyager locating another Federation vessel in the Delta Quadrant. The USS Equinox is in bad shape which is the result from battling some sort of creatures. Exactly what they are and why they were there are hidden from Voyager's crew by the wily folks from Equinox. In fact, a lot is hidden and the meeting at first seems like good news. Eventually, however, Janeway learns that the Prime Directive has been routinely ignored by Captain Ransom (John Savage) and she locks the crew in their quarters until she figures out what to do with these jerks. The Equinox crew, however, has an ace up their sleeve--their holo doctor has no moral qualms about ANYTHING and soon he's set in motion a plan to rescue his morally ambivalent crew members. By the end of the show, these folks have escaped and they've stolen Voyager's deflectors--and left them to the mercy of the creatures angered by Ransom's nasty experiments.

This is a nice episode because too often the Prime Directive and and niceness permeates the show so much, it's nice to have a breath of fresh air...or is it stale air?! Regardless, it sets them up for a nice confrontation which will occur in the second part of this two- parter.
