Since the two crews were stranded together in the Delta Quadrant, they were forced to work together as a single crew. Torres was initially assigned the provisional rank of [[lieutenant junior grade]]. Torres had difficulty getting along with the temporary [[chief engineer]], [[Joe Carey]], to the point of breaking his nose over [[plasma conduit]]s. She was recommended as a replacement chief engineer by Chakotay, as the original chief engineer was killed by the damage caused by the Caretaker's displacement wave. However, Kathryn Janeway was ambivalent about his suggestion. After ''Voyager'' became trapped in a [[quantum singularity]], Torres proved her skills to Janeway and earned her respect. Janeway then made her chief engineer over Carey. ({{VOY|Parallax}})

{{bginfo|At the end of this episode, Torres was also given the insignia for the provisional rank of full [[lieutenant]], giving her rank parity with Carey. However, later episodes returned her rank to lieutenant junior grade, and she mentions to Tom Paris (also a lieutenant junior grade) in {{e|Displaced}} that they hold the same rank. As with the rank costuming changes of Tuvok and Paris, it is not clear whether she was demoted, if the full lieutenant rank was simply an error, or the lieutenant jg rank was an error.}}
