The 37's
Original Air Date: August 28, 1995
Mission Stardate: 48975.1

After atmospheric disturbances force the crew to land the Starship Voyager on a mysterious planet, Captain Janeway leads an away team in search of the source of the centuries-old distress signal detected by the ship's sensors. They discover the source of the SOS to be an old Earth aircraft. Upon further investigation, the team finds a massive chamber containing eight earthlings in cryogenic units, one of which is Amelia Earhart (Sharon Lawrence). After releasing them from suspended animation, the U.S.S. Voyager crew comes under attack when a group of the planet's inhabitants mistakes them for members of the Briori -- an alien race which abducted more than 300 people from Earth in 1937 and brought them this planet as slaves.

It's learned that over time, the slaves revolted and killed the aliens. The eight surviving "37's" became part of the planet's history and the cryogenic chamber was their shrine. Since then, the descendants of the original 300 cultivated the planet and created a home much like Earth. The crew of the U.S.S. Voyager is invited to stay, and Janeway must face her greatest challenge as she allows each crewmember the personal choice to stay behind and begin a life among these kindred Humans.

Initiations
Original Air Date: September 4, 1995
Mission Stardate: 49005.3

When First Officer Chakotay borrows a Shuttlecraft to perform the Pakra, a solitary Indian ritual commemorating his father's death, he inadvertently drifts into Kazon-Olga territory and becomes the target of a Kazon youth attempting to earn his Olga warrior name by killing the Federation enemy.

Striking back, Chakotay disarms and destroys the Kazon ship, but not before rescuing the young boy named Kar -- the only surviving lifeform -- by transporting him aboard the Shuttlecraft. Soon, the two are pulled via tractor beam aboard a larger Kazon vessel sent to investigate the explosion. Led by Razik and Haliz, the Kazon-Ogla hold Chakotay prisoner during which he learns that because Kar has failed in his first mission, he doesn't earn his name and is sentenced to die... by Chakotay's hands.

Meanwhile, fearing their mission comrade is in danger, the Voyager crew -- with Kes and Neelix providing their expertise on Kazon -- sets out to find Chakotay.

Projections
Original Air Date: September 11, 1995
Mission Stardate: 48892.1

"Unless you destroy this ship, you're going to die."

The Doctor materializes in an empty Sickbay on the U.S.S Voyager. The computer informs the hologram that the crew abandoned ship and that Voyager is crippled. The Doctor is startled by a sudden pounding on the Sickbay doors, and Chief Engineer B'Elanna Torres forces her way into the room. She tells the Doctor that Voyager was disabled in a surprise Kazon attack, and that the crew was captured. Torres uses special holographic emitters installed throughout the ship to send the Doctor onto the bridge to treat an injured Captain Janeway. The Doctor is then sent to the mess hall to help Neelix fight off a Kazon warrior. After the battle is over, the Doctor gets the biggest shock of all - he is bleeding.

Back in Sickbay, the Doctor discovers he has a heart rate, blood pressure and a brain pattern - all of which are impossible in a hologram. Suddenly Lieutenant Reginald Barclay appears, claiming to be the Doctor's assistant. According to Barclay, the Doctor is a real flesh-and-blood human, holoengineer Lewis Zimmerman, and is trapped in a delusion - everything he has experienced aboard Voyager is nothing but a holographic simulation that he has been running.

Barclay says that a radiation surge has caused the program to malfunction, and that the radiation is now threatening the Doctor's life. The only way for the Doctor to survive is to end the program by destroying the holographic Voyager. The Doctor refuses to believe that he is a real person, but reoccurring stabs of pain and even hunger eventually help to convince him that Barclay is telling the truth.

As the Doctor is about to destroy the warp core, Commander Chakotay appears, telling the confused Doctor that he really is a hologram, and is actually on the holodeck on Voyager. A radiation surge not only trapped the Doctor on the holodeck, but began to cause him pain as his codes and circuits began to erode. Because of the malfunction, the Doctor will die as well if he destroys the simulation. The malfunction is repaired, and the Doctor reappears on the holodeck grid. He reassures Janeway that he knows where and what he is, and realizes that the crew values him just as much as they would if he were really human.

Elogium
Original Air Date: September 18 1995
Mission Stardate: 48921.3

Aggressive space-dwelling lifeforms attach themselves to the Starship, creating an electrophoretic field. The occurrence increases Kes' metabolic activity and accelerates her reproductive process, causing her to prematurely enter the elogium -- the time of life when Ocampa bodies become fertile. However, the elogium occurs only once, so if Kes is ever going to have a child, it must be immediately.

Before making his decision whether or not he will father Kes' child, a bewildered Neelix seeks the advice of Tuvok. Meanwhile, while considering how long it may take to get the ship home, Janeway wonders if it may be necessary for the crew to start having children to provide the next generation of personnel.

Non Sequitur
Original Air Date: September 25, 1995
Mission Stardate: 49011

Ensign Harry Kim is confused when he awakens to find himself on Earth -- in 24th century San Francisco -- working as a design specialist at Starfleet Engineering and engaged to be married to Libby. When he accesses his service records, they mysteriously indicate that he was never a crew member aboard U.S.S. Voyager.

Although he has longed to be with Libby, his sense of duty compels him to return to the reality he knows -- and the Delta quadrant. Soon the dazed Kim meats Cosimo, an alien in the guise of a local shop owner, who explains that a temporal anomaly in the space-time continuum has transported him to an altered reality. Kim learns that if he recreates the circumstances that brought him to Earth and then flies into the time-stream, there's a chance he might be able to transport back to his reality. Upon further investigation, Kim finds information on his onetime crew member Tom Paris which indicates that Paris is a convicted traitor and alleged Maquis sympathizer. Kim travels to Marseilles, France, to track down the recently paroled, drunk and disheveled Paris who claims he never made it aboard Voyager. Before long, Starfleet personnel believes Kim is a Maquis spy and put him under house arrest.

Twisted
Original Air Date: October 2, 1995
Mission Stardate: Unknown

A spatial distortion phenomenon occurs not only in space but inside the ship as well, changing Voyager's structural layout and completely disabling it. As Voyager is compressed and twisted by this unknown anomaly, the crew must work frantically to stop it.

Captain Janeway is incapacitated when she comes in contact with the strange force and soon, Neelix winds up missing. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew is trapped in a maze on Deck Six and the Doctor is confined to Sandrine's Bar as the force pushes inward, closing on them.

Parturition
Original Air Date: October 9, 1995
Mission Stardate: 49068.5

When Kes spends free time with a smitten Tom Paris, Neelix is overcome with jealousy and instigates a messy fight with the Lieutenant. In the aftermath, the Captain sends the sparring pair on a shuttlecraft mission to an M-Class planet, to replenish food supplies. When their craft experiences an interference pattern, they crash on the planet. Seeking cover from the trigemic vapors, Paris and Neelix seal themselves inside a cave and then discover they have company there -- an embryonic pod which hatches an alien baby, a repto-humanoid being. They must work together to sustain the newborn -- and preserve each other's life when its angry mother approaches.

Tattoo
Original Air Date: November 6, 1995
Mission Stardate: Unknown

"The Sky Spirits must have taken a wrong turn somewhere."

Exploring the surface of a rocky moon for minerals to stabilize the U.S.S Voyager's warp nacelles, an away team led by Commander Chakotay finds a strange symbol on the ground. The symbol is familiar to Chakotay, who remembers once having seen the same symbol in the Central American rain forest, where his father, Kolopak, took him as a teenager, in a search for their ancestral Rubber Tree People. Meanwhile, on the ship, the holographic doctor receives a scolding from his assistant, Kes, for his lack of compassion. The doctor decides to infect himself with a holo-virus to better understand what it means to be sick. Later, Chakotay discusses the symbol - and his trip long ago - with Captain Kathryn janeway; how did a symbol from Earth get to be on a moon 70,000 light-years away?

Chakotay explains to Janeway his knowledge of the symbol; the Rubber Tree People were created by the Sky Spirits, then led to a sacred land where they would live for eternity. The pictogram he found was a CHAH-mooz-ee, a healing symbol and a blessing to the land. When the ship's sensors pick up a warp signature heading away from the planet, Janeway authorizes a course to investigate. The planet has enough of the polyferranide needed to repair Voyager, but an away team can't beam down due to storm activity. While leading another away team to the surface in a shuttle, Chakotay has recurring memories of his visit to Earth's Central American rain forest with his father.

As the doctor deals with his self-inflicted sickness aboard Voyager, he must also treat Neelix, who has been attacked by a hawk on the planet below. Chakotay and the others encounter a deserted village, like the one in which a young Chakotay and his father made contact with the Rubber Tree People many years ago. A storm comes up quickly, and Chakotay is separated from the others as they make an emergency beam-out. Soon, Janeway tries to lead an away team to find her first officer, but they still cannot beam down; Janeway gives the order to land Voyager on the planet's surface.

While Voyager's crew struggles to maintain power in the midst of a cyclone, Chakotay finally contacts the planet's population; they are the Sky Spirits of his people's legends, a race of visiting aliens who have now settled in the Delta Quadrant. They explain that 45,000 years ago, they blessed a small group of nomadic hunters on Earth, calling them and their descendants "inheritors". Disheartened that their blessed people had been all but wiped out by other humans, the aliens had avoided contact with Voyager, treating her hails as hostile, and not allowing beam-downs. They release the ship from the storm with just seconds to spare, believing Chakotay's promise that humans have tried to change. As the away team arrives, Chakotay leaves the Sky Spirits, hearing the words of his father in the screech of a hawk flying above.

Cold Fire
Original Air Date: November 13, 1995
Mission Stardate: 49164.8

The crew is hailed by Ocampa colonists on an alien space station who, at long last, lead them to the female mate of The Caretaker, a mysterious being who may have the ability to send the U.S.S. Voyager home. As Tuvok tutors Kes in honing her rapidly maturing mental abilities, it's concluded that her burgeoning powers have been extremely underestimated.

Tanis, a male Ocampa colonist, agrees to introduce Captain Janeway and her crew to an entity they call Suspiria, the female mate of The Caretaker. As the Voyager crew builds great hope of returning home soon, Tanis implores Kes to stay with her Ocampa people on the alien space station.

Maneuvers

Mission Stardate: 49211.5

"Seska wants us to come after her."

As Captain Janeway and the crew of the U.S.S Voyagertrack a hailing beacon from someone using a Federation signal, they are suddenly ambushed by a Kazon raider, which begins a bold and brutal assault. The raider punches a hole in Voyager's shields, through which a smaller vessel rams, like a knife into the starship's belly. A small task force of Kazon warriors emerges and, after a firefight with Security, steals a transporter module and beams away. When Janeway halts the raider with a tractor beam, the raider's captain, Jal Culluh, hails her. Culluh smugly introduces his chief advisor and mastermind of the raid - Seska, the Cardassian spy who betrayed and fled from Voyager. Taunting Commander Chakotay, her ex-lover, Seska disables the tractor beam and the raider escapes.

Janeway is determined to retrieve the transporter module, whose use could alter the balance of power throughout the quadrant. Chakotay is embarrassed at being duped by Seska ever since she infiltrated his Maquis cell, and feels responsible for creating Voyager's predicament. Resolving to stop Seska himself, he steals a shuttle without authorization and follows the warp trail purposely left by Seska.

Chakotay catches up with the raider and uses a modifed scanner to locate the module. Seconds before he can destroy it remotely with an antiproton beam, his shuttle, detected by Seska, is rocked by photonic charges. Chakotay transports aboard the raider and evades the Kazon long enough to destroy the module with a phaser blast before surrendering. He undergoes a brutal interrogation by his Kazon captors, as an angry Culluh tries to force him to reveal Voyager's command codes. Chakotay defiantly resists, telling Culluh that he should beware of Seska's treachery. Culluh tries to recruit allies among the other sect leaders to attack Voyager and divide the spoils, all the while being expertly manipulated by Seska, who plays on his thirst for power.

Voyager intercepts the raider and Lieutenant Torres attempts a high-warp transport rescue of Chakotay, but a dampening field around him hampers her efforts. As Voyager comes under fire from half a dozen Kazon ships, Janeway transports Culluh and the other leaders onto her ship, offering to exchange them for Chakotay and the shuttle. The Kazon concede, and Chakotay is returned. Janeway is shocked that her first officer would blatantly subvert her authority, and puts an apologetic Chakotay on report just as Voyager receives a message from Seska. Chakotay stands stunned and humiliated before the rest of the Bridge crew as Seska tells him that she extracted a sample of his DNA and impreganated herself with it.

Resistence
Original Air Date: November 27, 1995
Mission Stardate: Unknown

In search of precious tellerium needed to power the ship, Janeway, Tuvok, Torres and Neelix transport to an Alsaurian city occupied by the hostile Mokra. Tipped off to the U.S.S. Voyager crew's presence, Mokra soldiers capture Tuvok and Torres. During the commotion, Janeway is secreted away by Caylem, a local eccentric who believes she is his long lost daughter.

Neelix is not discovered and transports back to the ship with the necessary minerals and the bad news that the others have been discovered and taken prisoner. As Voyager searches for its arrested crew, Janeway goes undercover, forced to rely on her own devices and the help of her odd new protector, Caylem, to break into the prison and rescue Tuvok and Torres.

Prototype
Original Air Date: January, 1996
Mission Stardate: Unknown

When the crew finds a deactivated humanoid robot floating in space, Chief B'Elanna Torres is able to repair this mysterious mechanical "man." When it comes to "life" the sentient artificial lifeform, Automated Unit 3947, explains that its kind is near extinction and asks Torres to build a prototype for construction of more units. In accordance with Prime Directive, Torres must decline the request, but when 3947's Pralor homeship is located, the robot abducts her and threatens to destroy Voyager unless she constructs the prototype.

Torres discovers that the robots are programmed to achieve victory while Janeway and her crew, taking measures to rescue her, find themselves in a war of alien robots.

Alliances
Original Air Date: January 22, 1996
Mission Stardate: 49337.4

After Voyager is severely attacked by Kazon and one of its crewmen killed, Chakotay appeals to Janeway to start thinking more like the Maquis. Janeway knows she must strengthen Voyager's position in the quadrant and, although it's a difficult decision and is against her beliefs and training, she agrees to take steps toward a strategic alliance with leaders of several Kazon factions. When they come together for a conference, its eminently clear that there are no rules in this region of space. Unbeknownst to Voyager, there is a traitor in their midst.

Seeking an intermediary to begin talks with the Kazon, Neelix shuttles to Sobras, a planet with a Kazon settlement. There, he makes contact with an acquaintance -- Jal Tersa of Kazon-Pommar. Meanwhile Janeway's initial meeting with Culluh and Seska is unsuccessful but Neelix is able to befriend Mabus, a governor of the Trabe, an exiled sect and bitter enemies of the Kazon. Thinking that the Trabe have compatible goals of peaceful co-existence, Janeway forms an alliance with them -- with deadly results.

Voyager spots a Cardassian designed, self-guided missile carrying a warhead capable of significant destructive force. As it travels toward Rakosan, a heavily populated planet, Torres reports that she's partly responsible for its virtually unstoppable status. When she was a Maquis, she intercepted the missile and changed its program to assault its own makers, but it later went astray and now she's the only hope I stopping it. So Torres volunteers to transport to the missile's interior and reprogram it again. But before she can detonate the warhead, the onboard computer tries to destroy her first, meanwhile Jonas transmits classified information on the mission to Seska.

Death Wish
Original Air Date: February 19, 1996
Mission Stardate: 49301.2

"For me, immortality is impossible to endure."

The U.S.S. Voyageris tracking an object resembling a comet, but when Ensign Harry Kim beams aboard a core fragment for study, a man in a Starfleet uniform materializes on the transporter padand identifies himself as "Q". A surprised and concerned Captain Janeway immediately puts the ship on red alert. When she meets "Q", she initially mistakes him for the near-omnipotent being that continually bedeviled the U.S.S Enterprise-D. "Q" thanks her for releasing him from his captivity inside the comet, but then says he wants to die. As he makes a gesture intended to end his life, all the men aboard Voyager disappear instead. Then, in a sudden flash, the Enterprise's Q appears, and demands to know what's going on.

With a snap of his fingers, Q restores the men to the ship. The other Q (or "Quinn", as he would later be called) demands asylum from his enemies, and Janeway agrees to a hearing. If Janeway rules in favor of Q, Quinn will go back to his enforced confinement by the Q Continuum. If the Captain rules for Quinn, he must be granted mortality. Her choice is a hard one - imprison the entity for eternity or give him the means to kill himself.

The hearing begins, with Q arguing that Quinn is mentally unbalanced, and that his suicide would have unimaginable consequences on the Continuum. Q snaps forth witnesses, among them Isaac Newton and Commander William Riker, to show how Quinn has impacted the lives of various humans, and why he should remain alive.

Quinn brings Janeway and his counsel Tuvok into the Continuum where all Q exist, to show them how life there has stagnated. They materialize on a desert road and find an assortment of humans silently lazing at an old farmhouse, all of it a representation of the Continuum that the limited human mind can comprehend. As a member of an immortal Continuum that has nothing new to experience, Quinn says his life has become meaningless and unendurable. Janeway rules in favor of Quinn's individual rights, and Q removes his powers, making him mortal. In short order Quinn ingests a rare poison and dies. Q appears, revealing that he procured the poison for Quinn. He also admits that it was Quinn's courage and conviction that shamed Q into reassessing his own compliance with the Continuum.

Voyager detects a distress call from a weakend lifeform aboard a small spacecraft and quickly beams a deathly ill Vidiian female to Sickbay. The doctor starts treating her for advanced stages of the phage by transferring her decaying body into stasis and creating a temporary, healthy holographic program of her being. As he becomes aquatinted with the alien, a hematologist named Danara Pel, something momentous occurs -- his adaptive program allows him to experience love and romance for the first time.

Lieutenant Paris continues to be insubordinate and espionage is more complicated than Jonas thought when Seska instructs him to plan an accident which will damage Voyager's warp coils.

Deadlock
Original Air Date: March 18, 1996
Mission Stardate: 49548.7

"There are two Voyagers and two crews."

As the crew nervously awaits the birth of Ensign Wildman's baby, the first child born aboard U.S.S Voyager, ship's scanners pick up twenty Vidiian ships ahead. Wanting to avoid confrontation with the deadly organ harvesters, Captain Janeway heads the ship into a large plasma cloud to prevent detection. Despite complications, the Doctor safely delivers the baby. the ship exits the cloud, only to hit subspace turbulence. The warp engines stall, and the antimatter inexplicably begins to drain from the engines. Janeway suggests infusing the engines with proton bursts, but before Lieutenant Torres can start the procedure, Voyager is jolted by a proton burst from out of thin air. The ship sustains heavy damage, and casualties begin to flood into Sickbay.

As Voyager is devastated by more proton bursts, shipwide power losses prevent the Doctor from resuscitating Wildman's baby, and she dies. As Torres and Ensign Kim repair a hull breach, Kim is sucked into space and killed, and Kes vanishes through a spatial rift. As the bridge erupts into flames and Janeway evacuates, she is stunned to see a "ghost" image of herself on a calm, intact Bridge.

Kes has emerged onto this other undamaged Voyager in a parallel continuum, where Kim and the baby are still alive. This Janeway realizes the rift is connecting both ships, and that the proton bursts from one have caused massive damage to the other. Sensor logs show that the cloud Voyager passed through was a divergence field that created duplicate Voyagers that are drawing on a single unduplicated source of antimatter. Establishing inter-ship communications, both Janeways decide to merge the ships, but the procedure only pushes them further out of phase, with only 30 minutes of antimatter left. Splitting the ships apart, or evacuating one crew to the other ship are ruled out as possibilities, and the captain of the crippled Voyager decides to self-destruct her ship in order to free the other.

As time runs out, a Vidiian ship attacks, but its weapons impact only on the undamaged Voyager. the Vidiians, unable to detect the other Voyager, swarm onto the ship, gunning down all opposition. This Janeway decides to self-destruct her ship to prevent capture, but not before sending Kim through the rift with Wildman's baby to restore the balance. Voyager self-destructs in a blinding flash, taking the Vidiian ship with it. As the other Voyager begins to limp toward home, Kim ponders the unique situation of having replaced himself.

The Thaw
Original Air Date: April 29, 1996
Mission Stardate: Unknown

The U.S.S. Voyager activates an automated message from members of the Kohl settlement, who, years earlier, survived an environmental catastrophe by submitting themselves into artificial hibernation. When the crew transports the Kohl's hibernation pods on board, they find humanoids in deep stasis with suppressed metabolic activity -- but with active minds and complex sensory systems controlled by a computer.

In an effort to help the Kohl people, Torres and Kim equip two pods with Starfleet technology and submit themselves into stasis. With their mental and physical activities closely monitored, they enter the environment created by the computer attached to the Kohl pods. Once there, Torres and Kim find that the humanoid's dreadful fears about recovery and survival have caused their computer program to manifest a devious, omnipotent clown - the idealization of their fear - and a cast of other nightmarish characters. Then, the clown holds Torres and Kim hostage while making increasingly unreasonable demands of Janeway.

Tuvix
Original Air Date: May 6, 1996
Mission Stardate: 49655.2

A Bizarre occurrence causes Neelix and Tuvok, who are attempting to transport back to the U.S.S. Voyager from an away mission, to arrive aboard the ship as one. The crew is astonished when a strange but oddly familiar alien humanoid with dark speckled skin and pointy ears - which is neither Tuvok nor Neelix - appears. The Doctor's bio-scanner shows that Neelix and Tuvok's patterns have merged, causing the pair to become one entity - Tuvix.

While Tuvix assimilates and starts to become a valued member of the team, Kes struggles with the fact the Neelix may not be a part of her life anymore. Meanwhile, the Doctor devises a method to restore Tuvok and Neelix, except for one variable - Tuvix does not want to die. When the Doctor, who is programmed to follow certain ethical guidelines, cannot perform the separation, Janeway is left with a monumental decision.

When Janeway and Chakotay contract a deadly virus from an insect bite, the Doctor cannot find a cure. Unable to perform her duties, Janeway is forced to turn over permanent command of the ship to Tuvok and retreat, with Chakotay, to a small planet which shields the effects of the fatal disease.

As the U.S.S. Voyager moves out of communication range, Captain Janeway leaves Tuvok with strict orders not to contact the Vidiians for help, even though they may have more sophisticated medical technology to handle the crisis. While the ship's crew is stuck with the harsh reality of abandoning their leader and first officer forever. The former Captain and Commander, alone on a strange planet, awkwardly drop protocol and begin to explore another side of their relationship.

Mission Stardate: Unknown

"A fitting end for the people who will not share their technology."

Lieutenant Tuvok checks on the progress of Ensign Lon Suder, a Betazoid crewmember who has confessed to a murder. Confined to secure quarters for the duration of the U.S.S Voyager's trip through the Delta Quadrant, Suder works to control his violent impulses, and has become a practitioner of floriculture. the ensign proposes a new way he might help in the ship's airponic vegetable gardens, and Tuvok promises to bring the matter to Captain Kathryn Janeway's attention. But an intercepted message from a Kazon probe soon takes precedence in the crew's minds; the transmission is from Seska, a former Voyager crewmember who defected to the Kazon-Nistrim sect. She claims she has given birth to Commander Chakotay's son, and that the Kazon leader is going to take the child away!

Although Janeway and her command crew know that Seska's message is possibly a trap, they decide to help Chakotay. As each member of the crew plans defensive strategies, the ship moves forward; they soon intercept a badly damaged Kazon shuttle that carries a near-dead Kazon named Tierna. After the holographic doctor saves Tierna's life, the Kazon tells them that Seska is dead, and that Kazon-Nistrim Maje Jal Culluh has sent Chakotay's son to Gema IV to be raised as a servant. Tierna reluctantly agrees to guide Voyager there.

The crew becomes increasingly wary that Voyager may be traveling into a trap deep inside Kazon space. Even though the Kazon factions are loyal to no one, the small raider craft which perpetually assault the starship seem to be targeting the starboard ventral, damaging the secondary command processors - a non-essential component of the ship - on Deck 12. When Janeway orders a reverse course for the ship, it is soon surrounded by Kazon carriers that offer Voyager only one escape route. Rather than move further into a now-obvious trap, Voyager's crew engages the Kazon ships, bringing to bear all their offensive and defensive weapons.

After Tierna blows himself up, damaging Suder's quarters and much of the ship's circuitry and systems, the Kazon easily overtake Voyager. Jal Culluh's Kazon troops - and the very-much-alive Seska - board the ship as Janeway attempts to activate the ship's self-destruct sequence. Only then does the damage to the secondary command processors make sense; they control the auto destruct protocols. Rather than killing the Starfleet crew, Culluh and his minions drop them off on the inhospitable volcanic world of Hanon IV. After stripping Voyager's personnel of the phasers, tricorders, and sommunicators, Culluh and his people take off with the starship, stranding every member of her crew on the planet...all, that is, save Lon Suder - who has escaped into a hidden passageway aboard the ship - and the holographic Doctor.
