TZ Release Date


US Release Date





As Voyager attempts to rescue Seska and Chakotay’s son from the Kazon-Nistrim, they come under repeated attack. Overwhelmed, the Nistrim take over the ship and maroon the crew on a primitive proto-Earth planet…

The Trekzone Review

This is the penultimate episode to feature the Kazon in a ‘main timeline’ sort-of way and what a way to wrap up their two season-long storyline of deceit, manipulation and villainy. It was nice to see our hero ship suffer repeated attacks which stopped them from making complete repairs, the submission by a thousand cuts was a very effective way of capturing the ship.

We’re left ‘over the summer break’ with not a question of WILL they survive, but HOW will they survive. We know that the ship will be retaken, and the voyage home will continue… but how will all that be done? Is Tom still alive? What can The Doctor and Suder do?
