Voyager travelling all that distance and yet turning around and meeting the Kazon doesn't seem to make sense.
I think Voyager had been travelling a year and a half from Kazon Space before they decided to 'turn back' to rescue Chakotey's 'baby'.
But one problem is that in that area, Tom Paris talked to some Talaxians and convinced them to help.
That means the Talaxians were in this area, one and half years away from where Voyager first met Neelix.
Another odd one is Seska's decision--she wants to survive in the delta quadrant and get home to as soon as possible.
Why would she choose to stay with the Kazon, who dont have replicator or transporter technology? They wanted Voyager more than Voyager needed them.
