It was never going to be easy and it was never going to be nice but I have to say, I did not expect Elaina to be as harsh, wicked and unprofessional as that. That was downright insubordinate. She needs to be slapped down hard. She's served in Starfleet enough to understand the protocols and the chain of command and that regardless of rank, Jessica as the commanding officer is CAPTAIN on the ship. God that is galling.
And again, as much as Elaina is at fault here, St. Peter hardly redeems herself or covers her command in flowers. She reacts to Elaina and takes the verbal abuse and fails to stamp her authority on the situation or on Elaina. This of course can only leads to dire complications later. Although Elaina at least will not put the ship in harm's way - who is to say she will not do a Jessica and act over her head as she did in the belief she's doing the right thing? Cross purposes on the one side can be more deadly than the enemies' agenda.
When it then comes to the enemy here, the Hirogen are in for a frightful discovery. It would be easy to remark, the hunters become the hunted but that certainly seems to be the way things are panning out. And it seems this foe is a considerable one. Will St Peter and the Rafale have to cooperate with the Hirogen to find answers? Or will things be too late? Very interersting developments all round.

Good God! That must be one powerful creature to kill an Alpha Hunter so quickly and ruthlessly!
Poor Jessica, and unfortunately she doesn't really have any verbal clout giving how she is not so familiar with the ship and she and the Rafale are partaking in their first mission with Jessica in charge. If I were Jessica I would spend half as much time understanding the ship as I would getting used to interacting with the crew. Hopefully she has Dossu for help...

The fact that someone got to the starship before the Hirogen is bad enough, but whatever it was appears to have been absolutely terror-iinducing.
Seurer's bitterness is understandable, given the circumstances, but that doesn't mean St. Peter has to put up with it. Jess is the captain now, and no matter how much Seurer disagrees with that, she has to either suck it up and make peace with that fact or get the hell off the ship.
St. Peter can't allow the ChEng's obvious defiance of her authority to go unchecked, or Jessica's command will be quickly undermined. Time for her to yank Seurer's leash... hard.
