Review : Fail. This entire episode is built on one of the flimsiest premises I have ever had the misfortune of witnessing. Chakotay borrows a shuttle to be alone so he may engage in a ritual. This ritual is apparently so private that it cannot be conducted in his quarters, holodeck, cargo bay, et cetera. Then, while his is sitting crosslegged and with eyes closed, his ship -surprise!- gets attacked. Thus we get another tedious episode with the Delta Quandrant's resident tribes of the hopelessly aggressive and terminally pigheaded. This would have been all okay if at the end of the episode, Chakotay laments missing the ritual. Perhaps it could have only occurred within a specific timeframe, say around the hour of his father's death for example. But no, after all of that we see Chakotay performing that very same ritual... in his quarters. Stupid, blinding plot hole that is large enough to pilot a runabout through sideways.
