Plotline

Voyager stops off for some R&R on the Norcadian home world and some of the senior officers become fans of Tsunkatse - a martial arts sport popular in the sector. When Seven of Nine turns up in one of the matches, they realise that the sport is a lot darker than they had thought. Can Seven survive long enough for the intrepid crew to fly to the rescue? And will she lose some of her humanity in the process?
