In the episode, Voyager is heavily damaged by another Kazon attack, and a debate rages between some of the crew about what to do next. So, an attempt is made to broker peace with some of the Kazon sects, including reaching out to their foes–Maj Culluh and Seska. Meanwhile, Neelix makes contact with the Trabe, an enemy of the Kazon.

The episode introduces some recurring characters and shows the return of others. Michael Jonas and Hogan make their debut here, and would reappear throughout the season. Seska and Culluh, introduced in Season 1, return here as well, as they would throughout the rest of Season 2 as well.
