Star Trek: Voyager: Basics, Part II

Finding themselves stranded on a barren planet by the Kazon, who have captured and taken Voyage, the crew must find shelter and food, and fight off the carnivorous creators there.

Back on Voyager, the Doctor finds an unlikely ally; the murdering sociopath, Ensign Suder. Working reluctantly together, they are the crews’ only hope of rescue. However, can just the two of them overcome the Kazon, and more importantly, Seska?
