Synopsis: With the rest of the crew trapped on a primitive world in the Hanon system, the Emergency Medical Hologram and Lon Suder are the only ones left aboard the Voyager, which is controlled by the Kazon-Nistrim. The E.M.H. determines that 'Seska's' baby is half-Cardassian and half-Kazon, so he cannot be Chakotay's son.

On the planet, Ensign Hogan is killed by a native animal while exploring a cave entrance. The crew encounters a tribe of stone-age natives on the planet, and they must escape a volcanic eruption together.

Lt. Paris gets a Talaxian convoy to help him attack the Voyager, while the E.M.H. and Crewman Suder work to sabotage the ship's weapon systems, causing a power surge that kills 'Seska' and allows Paris and the Talaxians to board the ship. Suder is killed by the Kazon-Nistrim. First Maje Jal Culluh takes 'Seska's' baby and escapes the ship before Paris and the Talaxians return to the Hanon system to retrieve the crew.
