Voyager encounters a graviton ellipse, a phenomenon that emerges from subspace on rare occasions. The anomaly engulfed a manned vessel during a Mars mission in 2032 and Chakotay is determined to retrieve the debris from inside the ellipse. Chakotay, Paris and Seven take the Delta Flyer in, but when an asteroid strikes, Chakotay, obsessed with retrieving the module, disobeys Janeway's order to leave. The collision renders the Flyer flightless as the ellipse prepares to return to subspace.

Chakotay mentions accomplishments in space including John Glen, but omits any references to Russian cosmonauts such as Yuri Gagarin although he was the first human to actually fly in space, before Glen or any American. See more
