"Basics, Part I" - In an emergency message to Chakotay, Seska discloses that their newborn son has been banished by Culluh to a servant colony. Chakotay feels conflicted about rescuing the baby because he was manipulated into fatherhood by Seska. When the crew detects a distress signal from a Kazon shuttle, they transport aboard the critically injured Teirna, a former aide to Seska, who delivers the news that Culluh has killed Seska. So with Teirna restricted to secured quarters, Voyager heads on a rescue mission through the Kazon-Nistrim territory where Kazon raiders viciously attack the ship. Before long, the fierce battle is over and the Voyager crew has lost - outwitted by their most bitter foe. Surrounded and defenseless, Captain Janeway must give up the ship to the Kazon, on the momentous season finale of "Star Trek: Voyager" airing MONDAY, MAY 20 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on UPN. "Basics, Part II," the conclusion of the exciting storyline, will launch the third season of "Star Trek: Voyager" next Fall.
The crew must accept that they've been tricked by Culluh who relishes the help of Voyager. At his side is an alive and well Seska who taunts Chakotay with their son. Then, the Kazon abandon the 148 members Voyager crew on the surface of Hanon Four, a primitive, ferocious planet. Stripped of their technology, they must use the most basic skills to survive. While they watch helplessly, their enemy lifts off the surface with their ship but, unbeknownst to the Kazon, two Starfleet crew members are stowed away on board.
