Stardate 48846.5: After a Maquis officer named Dalby breaks with procedure and replaces a faulty bioneural circuit without reporting the malfunction, Janeway assigns Tuvok – himself a former instructor at Starfleet Academy – to bring Dalby and a handful of other problematic Maquis up to speed on Starfleet protocol. This task proves more daunting than Tuvok could have imagined, since even the most worrisome Academy cadets at least wanted to be in Starfleet. Despite an order from Chakotay to learn the Starfleet ropes, Dalby and his fellow trainees are determined not to learn a thing – until their lives depend on it.
