YATI : B'Elanna orders the computer to disengage the safety protocols on the holodeck, and after a "are you sure?" warning, it does so. Yet in TNG's "Descent", Part 1, Data orders the safety protocols disengaged and the computer refuses to do so until a second senior officer confirms the order. Whilst it's understandable that different classes of ship years apart might run different software with different requirements, is it really plausible that Starfleet would be lowering the safety requirements over time like this?

It seems completely out of place for B'Elanna to be depressed about the death of the Maquis at this stage. She has known about their death for fifteen episodes now, this episode would have been better placed in the second half of last series.

Great Moment : Orbital skydiving!
Body Count : The crew of the Malon freighter, you also see a lot of dead Maquis in the holodeck.
Factoid : This is the first appearance of the Delta Flyer.

The orbital skydiving suit that B'Elanna uses was to be used by Kirk at the start of Star Trek : Generations.

Quote : Paris : "Well if we can't transport it out, we'll just have to fly in and grab it."
Tuvok : "Perhaps you weren't paying attention when the Malon freighter imploded?"

Plotline

B'Elanna is acting strangely, and no one can work out why. Unfortuantely, she's desperately needed in order to get the latest addition to Voyagers shuttlebay finished. And it must be ready to take on the galaxies polluters in time to rescue a stranded probe containing Borg technology...
