"No, I really want to get on that transtator assembly
"Harry, I canít do this alone."
Kim: "Iím sorry."
"Youíre making a big mistake. Canít you see whatís going to
happen? Weíre the only humans out here, Harry. People are going
to start pairing off and if we donít
get to the Delany sisters in Stellar Cartography soon, somebody
Kim: "Iíve got a girl back
"So what? Iíve got five."
Kim: "I plan on seeing
"Harry, Harry, Harry, Harry, Harry. You really think sheís going
to wait for you?"
Kim: "I hope so!"
Paris: "Let her go. Let her have a husband and kids and a
good life, while you and I have the Delany sisters."
Kim: "I told you, I need
to run a transtator diagnostic."
"You need to run a self-diagnostic. Look, they come as a pair.
Itís a double date or no
date. Come on! I told them all about you."
Kim: "What did you tell
them about me?"
"Well, for one thing, how you broke the single pilot speed
record at the Academy."
Kim: "Record? I never
broke any record!"
"And who are they going to check it with?"
"Kes, what are you doing here?"
Kes: "I had to know."
Neelix: "Know? Know what?"
"The origin of the shockwave is an M-class planet, Captain.
Weíre within visual range."
Janeway: "On screen."
Kim: "All vegetation on
the planet has been destroyed."
"No satellite system in orbit, no evidence of space craft."
Janeway: "Life signs?"
"None, but, the polaric radiation may be interfering with the

patterns on the surface show artificial waterways and a global
aqueduct system. There is a civilization down there, Captain."
Janeway: "Or there was."
"The entire surface of the planet was just seared."
Janeway: "There was a chain reaction in subspace, very likely
triggered by the detonation of one or more polaric ion devices."
"If thatís what happened, the people here never had a chance.
Torres: "Theyíre gone. Vaporised. Every organic has
basically been obliterated.
Janeway: "At least it happened quickly. Polaric detonation would have
swept through this city in seconds."
Tuvok: "It recalls the Chaltok IV incident."
Torres: "Chaltok IV?"
Tuvok: "A Romulan research colony was nearly destroyed
during the testing of one these devices. It lead to the polaric
test ban treaty of 2268."
Torres: "So, weíre looking at the end of a war."
Paris: "I wonder who won?"
"Iím not so sure there was a war. Look at these readings,
Torres: "Polaric ion concentrations are so high I canít
get an accurate reading."
Janeway: "Iíd say these conduits were the source of the
explosion, wouldnít you?
Torres: "A civilization powered by polaric ion energy?"
Janeway: "Thatís what it looks like. A time bomb
underneath every street, running into every home."
"Hey, calm down. Itís all right. Now, whatís the problem?"
"I saw them. They appeared out of thin air! Theyíre some kind of
demons! I saw them with my own eyes!"
"Iím sorry we startled him, we just came around the corner."
"Shh. Now, calm down. Youíve been reading too many of those
Storm' tales, young fellow. Thereís no such thing as demons."
"But, Iím telling you..."
"Ah ah ah! Run along now, have a confection bar and calm down.
All right everybody, back to your business. Nothing else to see
here now. Oh, sorry about that."
"Who knows what gets into their heads, eh?"

"Need a timepiece?"
"Maybe you could help me. Iím from Caltow province. Iím not used to
Shopkeeper: "Theyíre no different that Calton timepieces."
"Are you sure? What do these
numbers stand for?"
Shopkeeper: "Rotations, intervals, fractions. Same as any
timepiece. Fourteen kaladas."
"A fair price. I might stop back later, if thereís time. If I
understood correctly, this world is going to be destroyed sometime

supplemental. Thereís been no sign of Captain Janeway or Lieutenant
Paris since they were lost in a subspace fracture."
The Doctor: "Hmm?"
Neelix: "Is something
The Doctor: "Yes, terribly wrong. Your brain is not on file.
Either your government failed to transmit the standard 15-5-01 crew
personnel report or somebody at Starfleet
medical really fouled up."
"Iím not a member of the Starfleet crew."
Neelix: "We came aboard at mid-expedition."
The Doctor: "And no one asked you for your medical histories when
you arrived? Of course not. That would be the shipís doctorís job.
My job, if anyone had bothered to tell me about new passengers, but,
I seem to be just about the last to know about everything around
here. So, tell me, just how many other new
arrivals are there?"
Kes: "And the crew from another ship that was destroyed."
The Doctor: "Another crew. Thatís nice." (keys combadge)
"This is the Emergency
Medical Holographic System to Captain Janeway."
Neelix: "Sheís not on board. Sheís missing on the surface of
The Doctor: "Missing? The
Captain is missing? It seems Iíve found
on the voyage of the damned. Very well. Please advise the highest
ranking officer who is not missing to see me at his earliest
convenience. You may shut off my program now."
Neelix: "But, you havenít told us anything about her
The Doctor: "She is the healthiest member of her species I
have ever seen. The only member of her species I have ever seen. You
have a lovely brain. It will make a fine addition to our files. I
wouldnít worry. If your species has a history of extraordinary
mental abilities, this may simply be your way of flexing those
muscles for the first time. Living in space requires the body to

process. Go home. Get a good nightís sleep and drink plenty of
The Doctor: "Everybody should drink plenty of fluids. Donít leave
without turning me off."
Kes: "Computer, end program."
The Doctor: "And call me in the morning."
"I know youíre lying."
Janeway: "Young man, weíre here on a business trip and we
have a lot of work to do."
Latika: "The officer told me you came here on the
Janeway: "Thatís right, weíre from Caltow province."
Latika: "Yeah? Well, I just talked to the transport
attendant. He told
four people came today from Caltow. Two of them were a lot older
than you and they had
a child with them."
Janeway: "Well, the attendant was wrong. That was us."
Latika: "So, whereís the child?"
Paris: "We ate him because we are demons and we eat
children and I havenít had my supper yet!"
"This is a lawful demonstration."
Terla: "We have a right to be here."
Paris: "Under normal circumstances, Iíd say we should come
"Weíre sorry to involve you
in this. PeíNar Makull. My colleague Ny Terla."
Terla: "Apparently you just happened to be at the wrong place
at the wrong time."
Paris: "I was just
thinking the very same thing."
Makull: "What were
you doing there?"
Janeway: "Weíre from
Caltow Province. We were hoping to tour
power facility, compare it to our own."
Terla: "Iíve never
seen a Calton with your colour hair."
Janeway: "Well, now
Makull: "My friend
thinks you were sent by the government to infiltrate us."
You were there when she got this." (indicates Janeway's injury)
Terla: "Perhaps you
were told to put on a good show for us?"
"We donít even know why
someone would want to infiltrate you."
Terla: "Thatís hard
to believe. Even in Caltow there are protests against polaric
Janeway: "Weíre not
Makull: "When was the
last time you were in a power plant?"
Janeway: "Not since
we left home."
Makull: "You werenít
in that plant yesterday?"
"We were just getting there
when we stumbled into you."
Makull: "We know
youíre not telling the truth. We have safety monitors to measure
polaric energy. When you were brought here, they registered five
times the normal readings.
Terla: "To register
levels this high you were either inside that plant yesterday, or at
the site of a polaric disaster worse than any in the history of this
"Whatís your name?"
Janeway: "Not where
Makull: "What part of
Caltow Province was that again?"
Janeway: "I donít see
any point in this."
Makull: "There is a
point, a very important one. It has to do with our
and whether we can keep it or not. Can we?"
Janeway: "I donít

Latika: "Let me go!"
Terla: "Look what I
caught sneaking around outside."
"The boy has nothing to do
with any of this."
Makull: "Is he yours?"
Janeway: "No, heís
just somebody we met here."
Latika: "Donít trust
them. They arenít who they say they are."
Paris: "Thanks, kid."
Janeway: "Look, this
is all a misunderstanding."
"They lied about coming here
on the continental transport! I talked to the attendant myself! Let

Torres: "I guess it
means they were caught in the explosion."
Tuvok: "It only means
their combadges were caught in the explosion. Further speculation
serves no purpose. I suggest we search for other tangible evidence."
"None of us have seen
devices like these before. Terla
believes theyíre spy equipment."
Janeway: "Theyíre for
surveying property. Iíve been thinking of buying land here. I need
to survey it."
Terla: "Iíd be
curious to know how they work. Would you show me?"
Makull: "But, then one
of them might be a weapon, and I wouldnít

Paris: "Hey, kid, you
were right about one thing. I was lying. I donít eat children."
Latika: "You donít
scare me. My father works for the media bureau and when I tell him
all about this, he'll go write..."
Paris: "What is he,
some kind of journalist?"
Latika: "Yes, and so
"Is that right?"
Latika: "I report for
my school journal. Thatís right where everyoneís going to find out
about you when I write about this in next weekís edition."

"What time is it?"
Terla: "401 rotations plus 21."
Janeway: "Weíll just wait until 23."

about the alleged time of our self-annihilation. All right,

"Chakotay to Captain
identified an M-class planet in the red dwarf system weíre
approaching. Do you want to change course to investigate?"
Janeway: "Are you
familiar with any intelligent life forms in this system, Mr. Neelix?"
"Familiar? Not exactly
familiar. Considerably less than familiar actually. Kes, what are
you doing here?"

Tuvok: "Sensors do

of space craft in the vicinity. It appears to be
a pre-warp civilization."
Janeway: "Which means, as a
policy, we donít involve ourselves in their affairs."
Neelix: "Of course. A most enlightened philosophy. Come on, Kes."
Kes: "Iím sorry,
Captain, is it possible to see this planet on the viewscreen?"
"There it is."
(to Kim) "Come on, just go."
Janeway: "Enter the
planetís coordinates into the log and maintain present heading,
Commander. Warp six."
