Commander Chakotay borrows a shuttle from Voyager to perform a Native American ritual to commemorate his father’s death. During the ritual, his shuttle is attacked by a young Kazon boy (Eisenberg) named Kar. Kar is here to earn his honorable Kazon name. The only way to earn his honorable name is by death, either his or the Commander’s.


What a fantastic episode. The Kazon are very much like the Klingons. Both believing in there is honor in death, and that mercy is weak. Aron Eisenberg, Nog from DS9, does an excellent job as the Kazon boy Kar. “Initiations” is fantastic, and a much watch for Chakotay fans.


***** out of *****

Nog turned into a Kazon! Well, Aron Eisenberg. Either way, any episode with my favorite Ferengi deserves a 5!
