I liked it. Like Phage it does a good job of showcasing the transition of the crew into their situation while having a particularly Star Trek problem for the ship to deal with at the same time.
Neelix, having now fully assured my complaints of his being on the ship, has started his descent into being annoying. I know he's not in any shape or form military, and was a rough and ready trader before he met Voyager, but on what planet does it make sense to arrive in a crisis centre with entrées? It's completely pointless, and it's not even like they needed him on the bridge for the next bit.
Meanwhile I loved the bit with Tuvok and Kim basically whispering to each other on the bridge with communicators. It's a nice little subversion of the technology that we're so used too.
But oh God, the spirit animals have started to appear.
