Janeway regards Paris sternly. She pronounces his full name and her punishment against him: demotion to the rank of [[ensign]] and incarceration, in solitary confinement, for the next thirty days in the [[brig]]. Paris stands at attention, staring straight ahead. She reaches for the [[Rank insignia#Pip|two pips]] on his collar, one black and one gold, indicating his Lieutenant rank, and plucks the black pip away, leaving only the gold one, the insignia of an ensign. She then orders the security officers to escort him to the brig, referring to him by his new, lower rank.

Paris sits in his cell, recounting the incident, as the PADD records it. Suddenly, ''Voyager'' is shaken. Janeway's voice comes over the com, sternly calling red alert and ordering all hands to [[battle stations]]. The officer on duty quickly departs. Paris calls after him; if the ship is under attack, he, Paris, the [[conn officer]], should be on the bridge at the conn station. But the officer does not respond, and a second jolt throws him into a wall, almost knocking him unconscious.

Paris comes to and finds [[The Doctor]], the crew's [[holographic]] [[chief medical officer]], over him, ministering to his injuries. They are not serious, no more than a bump on the head. Paris gets up, sits on the bunk and asks him about what happened.

The Doctor informs him that they were attacked by five ships. He then takes the opportunity to frighten Paris, for all the times Paris has annoyed and exasperated him, by telling him about the sterling performance at the [[helm]] of Ensign [[Culhane]], who has temporarily replaced him as conn officer. He twists the knife even further by suggesting that Captain Janeway may be considering making the appointment permanent, from what he has heard.

Finishing his ministrations, The Doctor packs up his medkit and turns to leave. Paris pleads with him for a [[neurological scan]] or something, to get him a medical reprieve and an early release; the confinement and isolation are getting to him now; he has been here for ten days and has twenty more to go. But The Doctor refuses and tells Paris that he will see him in twenty days.
