Synopsis - When it is discovered that three members of her crew have a below standard efficiency rating, Janeway decides to take them on an away mission in the Delta Flyer.

Good Shepherd is the analogy Janway uses to describe her relationship to the crew in this episode, that when even one sheep strays away from the flock, the shepherd leaves the flock to go after it and bring it back to the fold. Here Janeway must go after three sheep, all with uniquely different problems: a reclusive theortician, a phobic, and a self-doubter.
This episode has similar lines to previous episodes in that it explores the lives of a group of crewman not part of the regular cast. Similar episodes include the first season episode Learning Curve and the Next Generation episode, Lower Decks. While this episode may be a little slow moving, it does have some excellent exterior shot of the ship and special effects, such as zooming directly into the Captain's ready room, from an exterior shot of the ship, and then zooming directly out of lower junction room window back to an exterior shot.
