SUMMARY: Voyager is trapped in “chaotic space”. The unseen aliens that inhabit the area turn on Chakotay’s “crazy gene” during a boxing match in the holodeck. Despite fearing for his own sanity, Chakotay goes on a vision quest, meets his dear old (and decidedly crazy) grandfather, and spars with the aliens in boxing matches. The aliens communicate with Chakotay—mostly by punching him in the head—and eventually he pushes the big ol’ Reset Button, er, I mean, he uses the aliens’ knowledge to help Voyager escape from “chaotic space”.
Before we launch full bore into this adventure, it might be a good idea to explain where I am, vis-à-vis Voyager and the Star Trek franchise in general. See, Voyager is about where I stopped watching Star Trek. Not that this was necessarily the fault of Voyager, mind you.
