According to Memory Alpha's original in Universe Timeline, the story sequence is:
Jetrel : Learning Curve : Facets.


Tuvok notices how Crewman Dalby, a former member of Chakotay's crew, replaces a bioneural gel pack without authorization. Captain Janeway orders Dalby and three other former Maquis that are known to be stubborn and unmotivated to take part in a Starfleet training led by Tuvok. Tuvok arranges drills for the four crewman but with little success. In the meantime more gel packs have been infected, and the source is found to be a cheese that Neelix keeps in his kitchen. Multiple system failures occur on the ship, and Tuvok and the four crewman are trapped inside a cargo bay without being able to contact the bridge. Janeway orders to invert the warp field to heat up the gel packs and fight the infection, which causes a conduit in the cargo bay to rupture. As the room is filling with poisonous gas, Tuvok orders three of the crewmen to escape through a Jefferies tube, while he stays behind to save the fourth one, thereby earning the respect of the former Maquis. After the incident is over, Dalby indicates to Tuvok that if he is willing to bend Starfleet protocol to save one of them, perhaps they can bend to accept the Starfleet rules after all.

Errors and Explanations

Internet Movie Database

Incorrectly regarded as goofs

  1. Despite the fact that the four Maquis malcontents are supposed to be refusing to follow Starfleet protocols, when Chakotay first confronts them, Dalby addresses Chakotay by his Starfleet rank of commander, rather than by name. This can be explained by the fact that Chakotay, himself, was one of the Maquis and Dalby served with him, meaning that he remembered the respect he had for Chakotay.

Nit Central

  1. kariyaki on Saturday, July 21, 2001 - 11:51 pm: Anybody else notice the actor who played Chell's Bolian makeup smeared ALL OVER Gerron when they hauled him out of the cargo bay at the end of the episode? Charles Cabe (Ccabe) on Sunday, March 03, 2002 - 10:32 pm: Perhaps Bolians wear blue makeup to make them more attractice to the opposite sex; or just to make members of the same sex jelous. Incidentally, something similar happened in First Contact. Some of Ruby's makeup got smeared all over Picard. So why can't it happen to Chell.
  2. Vicky on Friday, March 01, 2002 - 2:22 pm: Can you guys clear something up for me? At one point in this episode, Kim states quite clearly that "everything is down, life support, warp drive, COMMUNICATIONS" Janeway then says, "Janeway to Torres". Er...aren't communications supposed to be down? She's probably trying to contact Torres via a direct combadge to combadge link, using the badges stand alone range of 500 Km.
  3. John A. Lang on Thursday, February 26, 2004 - 8:13 pm: If energy is such a big issue on the Voyager, why is Janeway & Tuvok running the Holodeck? I mean, If they don't have enough power to run the Replicators, how can they have enough power to run the Holodeck? ccabe on Friday, February 27, 2004 - 12:57 pm: (Berman mode on) The replicators and basically everything else are on a diffrent power system than the holodecks. (Berman mode off)
