Stardate not given: The crew sees the first episode of “A Briefing With Neelix”, an internal broadcast which Neelix hopes will improve morale. But after speaking with Harry Kim, former editor of the StarFleet Academy newspaper, he is inspired to investigate the departure of Tom Paris. Tom’s departure and his previous bad behavior were all a ruse to flush out the person who was passing information to Seska and the Kazon. But Neelix doesn’t know this and jeopardizes the whole scheme.
