As Culluh tests the ship's power, Seska activates the Emergency Medical Holographic Program only to have the Doctor report startling facts about her newborn baby. The Doctor detects that Ensign Suder is stowed away on board and learns that Lieutenant Paris, with the help of a Talaxian convoy, is piloting a damaged shuttlecraft, desperately working to somehow save Voyager. The Doctor soon arouses Seska's suspicions and is permanently deactivated, leaving Suder as the only hope to retake the ship. All the while, Suder is tortured by the realization that he must resort once again to violence.
