Stardate 50953.4: Chakotay startles B’Elanna by recruiting her for a Maquis mutiny, and then proceeds to carry it out. Things get even stranger when Seska turns up as one of the mutineers. Suddenly Paris walks into the scene, revealing the fact that Torres is playing a holo-novel. The experience was designed by Tuvok as a training exercise shortly after the joining of the two crews when the security officer felt that a mutiny was a real possibility. The fresh literary material is so intriguing to the crew that many of them begin surreptitiously playing the program and Janeway instructs Tuvok to write an ending and make it more than a training exercise. But Seska had discovered the program before she defected to the Kazon and she rewrote the subroutines to take her revenge on Tuvok for having betrayed the Maquis back when they were still in the Alpha Quadrant.
