Emanations_000.jpgJaneway: "Captain's Log, Stardate 48623.5. There are two hundred forty six elements known to Federation science. We believe we have just discovered the two hundred forty seventh inside the ring system of a class-D planet."

Emanations_013.jpgKim: "The element has an unusually large atomic mass, over five hundred and fifty nucleons. And the readings are constant. The element appears to be stable."
Janeway: "A stable transuranic element inside a natural environment. This is a first."
Torres: "Can you imagine what we could make with this stuff? Probe casings that could go into the core of a sun, ultra-thin reactor
Emanations_014.jpgshielding."
Janeway: "That's assuming we can mine it. Ensign, try and locate the highest concentration of the element."
Kim: "The element is present in most of the asteroids that comprise the rings. I can isolate a sample and beam it aboard."
Torres: "Or, better yet, maybe we could get a firsthand look at this element in its natural environment. It looks like most of these
Emanations_015.jpgasteroids support class-M atmospheres."
Janeway: "Good idea. Commander, you're in charge."
Chakotay: "Aye, Captain. Mister Kim, would you like to join us?"
Kim: "I wouldn't miss it, sir."

Emanations_017.jpgChakotay: "I'm picking up a large cavern in there. The readings are What the hell is this?"
Torres: "It's organic. Some kind of biopolymer residue."
Chakotay: "I want to see what's ahead."

Emanations_021.jpgTorres: "Class five humanoid. It appears to be dead."

Emanations_023.jpgChakotay: "Captain, there are eighteen bodies here, all humanoid. Eleven male, seven female. From what we can tell they're in various stages of decomposition. Some have been here for years. Others no longer than a few days. In fact, one body arrived less than twelve hours ago."
Janeway:
"Arrived from where?"
Chakotay (Over Communicator): "I don't know, Captain. But from Emanations_024.jpgthe position of the arms, I'd say we're looking at some kind of burial site."
Janeway:
"What about the element we discovered?"
Torres:
"It's emanating from their bodies, Captain  we think it's some kind of by-product of their decomposition process."
Chakotay: "I recommend we leave these bodies in peace, Captain. However, Mister Kim has a different opinion."
Emanations_027.jpgKim: "With all due respect, Captain, I have to disagree with the Commander. This is our first contact with this race, and I think we should be learning all we can about them. It's a unique anthropological opportunity."
Chakotay: "I understand the chance for scientific discovery, Captain, but whatever belief this race has, they clearly meant for their dead to be left alone and I think we should respect that."
Emanations_028.jpgJaneway: "I'm afraid I agree with Commander Chakotay. Set your tricorders for passive scans. I don't want to disturb anything."
Chakotay: "Captain, the sanctity of these bodies should be respected. I recommend we make visual observations only. No tricorders."
Janeway:
"Very well. Keep me informed. Janeway out."

Emanations_029.jpgKim: "Commander, thanks for letting me voice my opinion to the Captain."
Chakotay: "I remember the first time I went on a tomb excavation on Ktaria 7. I wanted to keep a memento of the experience, so I picked up a rock from the burial site. Only I found out later it wasn't just a rock."
Kim: "What was it?"
Chakotay: "It was a sacred stone. The Ktarians lay thousands of them in the tomb. Each one represents a special prayer. Without realising it, I had desecrated that man's grave."

Emanations_035a.jpgJaneway: "Seska, initiate emergency transport procedure twenty one alpha."
Seska: "I'm already on it, Captain. It's no use. His pattern's gone. And the subspace vacuole has disappeared. I'm looking at the transporter logs."
Seska: "My only guess is he was pulled into the vacuole."
Torres: "This isn't one of the bodies we found in the cavern. It's
Emanations_037.jpgsomeone else."
Chakotay: "This body might have come out of the vacuole at the same time Kim was taken in."
Torres: "Wait a minute. I'm showing signs of electrical activity in the brain. It looks like she died just a few minutes ago. We might be able to revive her. If we can, we might get some answers."
Chakotay: "We can't interfere with this woman's natural process of
Emanations_040.jpgdeath."
Torres: "What do you suggest we do, Commander? Kim's gone. She's the only one who might be able to tell us what happened."
Chakotay: "Beam us directly to Sickbay."
Seska: "Aye, Commander."

Emanations_045a.jpgRenora: "Death is the end of this life. But it is also the beginning of a new journey. Ptera will now thrive in the Next Emanation. This is both her sacred duty and her great privilege. As she begins her transition, we promise to carry memories of her so that when we enter the..."
Kim: "Help! Get me out of here!"
Renora: "She's alive! Deactivate the cenotaph, quickly!
Kim: "Let me out!"

Emanations_047.jpgLoria: "Here it is."
Hatil:
"Thanks. A lot of memories in this."
Loria:
"We're so proud of you, Hatil. This is such a generous, selfless act."
Hatil:
"It's my last gift for you and the children."
Loria:
"And it's one we will always cherish. But I'm still gonna miss you."
Emanations_049.jpgHatil: "I know. I'll miss you too, but I'll see you in the Next Emanation when you're ready to join me."
Loria:
"Give my love to your father. Tell him that the garili trees he planted have, have been in bloom for three years straight."
Hatil:
"I will. Goodbye."
Loria:
"Goodbye."
Renora:
"Lie down. It's going to be all right. We won't harm you."
Emanations_052.jpgHatil: "Who is that?"
Renora:
"We're not sure yet. We think he came from the Next Emanation."
Hatil:
"The Next Emanation? You mean he's come back?"
Kim:
"Come back from where?"
Renora:
"We've called for the thanatologist. He'll be here any moment. I don't think there should be any further discussion about
Emanations_053.jpgthis until he arrives."
Hatil:
"How did you get here?"
Kim:
"I'm not sure. I just sort of woke up inside one of those pods. I was conducting an investigation on an asteroid, we found some dead bodies, then there was some kind of subspace phenomenon."
Hatil: What do you mean, you saw dead people there?
Neria:
"I'm, er, Dr. Neria, the chief thanatologist of this facility."
Emanations_056.jpgKim: "Ensign Harry Kim of the Federation starship Voyager."
Neria:
"I see. What race are you from?"
Kim:
"We call ourselves human. We come from a planet called Earth in a distant part of the galaxy."
Hattil:
"He said he saw dead people on an asteroid."
Neria:
"Dead?"
Kim:
"Look, can you tell me where I am?"
Emanations_057.jpgHatil: "Doctor, what does this mean?"
Neria:
"Rest, Hatil. There's no need for concern. May I speak to you privately, Ensign Harry?"
Kim:
"Just Harry's fine."
Neria:
"We are the Vhnori and this is our homeworld."
Kim:
"We were investigating one of the asteroids in the rings around your planet."
Emanations_058.jpgNeria: "There are no rings around our world."
Kim:
"So the subspace vacuole must have transported me somewhere else. Do you have any star charts I could look at? I'd like to figure out where I am now in relation to where I was."
Neria:
"Where you are now is in the world of the living. Where you came from was another dimension."
Kim:
"Another dimension?"
Neria:
"Yes. You returned from the Next Emanation. The afterlife."

Emanations_061.jpgJaneway: "How were you able to revive her?"
Doctor:
"It's a simple process, really. She died of a cancerous growth on the brain stem. I removed the tumour, replicated new neural tissue and used the standard Starfleet post-mortem resuscitation technique for a class five life form."
Janeway: "Why was she covered with this biopolymer?"
Doctor:
"She wasn't covered with it, exactly. The biopolymer is a Emanations_063.jpgby-product of her own tissues."
Janeway: "Explain."
Doctor:
"As her tissues decayed, the cell membranes broke down into a biopolymer resin which was then excreted by her epidermal layer. My guess is it's a natural decomposition process for this species."
Chakotay: "So the other biopolymer fibres Emanations_068.jpgwe found in the cavern were?"
Doctor:
"Were probably the result of other bodies that had decomposed and left a residual membrane. In essence, Commander, you were strolling through dead bodies."
Janeway: "Can you wake her?"
Doctor:
"Yes, of course. Kes, two cc's of netinaline. Hello."
Janeway: I know this must be very confusing for you, but you're all Emanations_069a.jpgright. My name is Kathryn Janeway.
Ptera: I'm Ptera. Where's my brother?
Janeway: Your brother? I'm afraid he's not here.
Ptera: But he's supposed to be here. They're all supposed to be here.
Janeway: Ptera, we were able to remove the tumour from your brain. You're going to be all right. We revived you because one of
Emanations_070.jpgour..."
Ptera: This is the Next Emanation? This is the afterlife?"
Janeway: No. No, it's not. You're on a starship."
Ptera:
"This can't be right. My brother's supposed to be here. Something's wrong."
Janeway: "Let me explain.
Ptera:
"No. No! Get away from me. This isn't right. This can't be right! Not right!" (screams)

Emanations_071.jpgKim: "You're saying there was a woman in here just before I arrived?"
Neria:
"That's right. Her name was Ptera. She was dying of a tumourous lesion to her midbrain."
Kim:
"Dying. So she wasn't dead yet?"
Neria:
"No, of course not. She didn't die until the cenotaph was activated. That's the purpose of the cenotaph. It terminates a Emanations_072a.jpgperson's life just before the appearance of a spectral rupture and then it allows their body to be taken to the Next Emanation."
Kim:
"Spectral rupture."
Neria:
"Well, I can show you.
Kim:
"This looks like what we would call a subspace vacuole. Does the cenotaph create these ruptures?"
Neria:
"Natural occurrences, once every six hours. This entire Emanations_073.jpgcomplex was built on this site because a spectral rupture occurs here. We have thousands of such sites on our world. Forgive my curiosity, Harry, but, you are the first person ever to come back from the afterlife. I have quite a few questions. You said that you saw dead bodies?"
Kim:
"That's right. There were seven females, eleven males. Some of the bodies had been there for years, others just for a few days."
Emanations_075.jpgNeria: "Are you saying that when we die we go to some asteroid and decompose?
Kim:
"Well, that's what it looked liked to us."
Neria:
"These bodies, did you perform any kind of bio-scans on them? Was there any specific medical data that you can remember?"
Kim:
"Doctor, maybe I should just stop right there. This is what my Emanations_077.jpgpeople call a 'first contact' situation, and we've learned to be very careful about how much we tell alien cultures we've just met."
Neria:
"I would like to start a complete bio-analysis as soon as possible. If you'll just follow Dr. Renora."
Kim:
"Bioanalysis? Look, all I want to do is get back to my ship. And I think there might be a way to use this spectral rupture of yours to..."
Neria:
"You're not going anywhere. You are our first glimpse into what lies beyond death. We are not going to let this opportunity pass us by."

Ptera: "That's, that's all I know. I'm sorry. I can't tell you anything Emanations_080.jpgmore."
Janeway:
"You've told me quite a bit. At least now I have an idea of what might have happened to Mister Kim. Is there anything I can do for you?"
Ptera:
"Well, I'd, I'd like some answers."
Janeway:
"About what?"
Ptera: "About what happens to my people when we die."
Janeway: "We're not sure exactly. But fEmanations_081.jpgrom what we do know, the vacuoles deposit the bodies on the asteroids in this ring system."
Ptera:
"And then what?"
Janeway:
"I'm not sure what you mean."
Ptera:
"We're supposed to evolve into a higher level of consciousness when we die. We're supposed to gain a greater understanding of the universe. All of our questions are supposed to be answered."
Emanations_082.jpgJaneway: "Ptera, I know this must be frightening for you. You've been through a very traumatic experience. It would frighten me. But please try to understand. Just because I don't have the answers to your questions doesn't mean there aren't any."
Ptera:
"My brother. I always thought I'd see him again. I had so many things to tell him about his children, the people he left behind. But he isn't here, is he? He's. So, what am I supposed to do now, Emanations_083.jpgspend the rest of my life on this, this starship?"
Janeway:
"Ptera, I am gonna do everything in my power to figure out just how you got here. And as soon as I know anything, I will tell you, all right?"
Ptera:
"All right."
Kes:
"Maybe we should get out of Sickbay, let you walk around for a while, clear your mind, maybe get something to eat. Are you hungry?"
Ptera:
"Yes. Actually, I could use something to eat."

Emanations_086.jpgLoria: "Hatil, what are you saying?"
Hatil: "I'm just not sure I'm ready, that's all."
Loria:
"I don't understand."
Hatil:
"Neither do I. It's just that I'm starting to wonder what really happens when we die, if I'm really going on to a higher level of consciousness."
Loria:
"The alien. What has he been telling you?"
Hatil: "All he's done is made me stop and think about something Emanations_087.jpgwe've always taken for granted, and now that I've thought about it,  I'm not so eager to go through with it anymore."
Loria:
"Hatil, we know nothing about him, or why he's come here, or why he's spreading lies about the Next Emanation. All I know is you-you can't throw away a lifetime of belief because of him. It doesn't make sense."
Hatil: "I don't know what to think anymore. I'm scared, Loria."
Emanations_088.jpgLoria: "It's going to be all right. Think about your father. He's waiting for you. I'll see you at the transference ritual. I don't know who you are or where you come from, but you stay away from my husband."
Kim:
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to."
Hatil:
"Harry, you have to forgive my wife. She's having trouble understanding my concerns about the afterlife. That's why I'm here. IEmanations_089.jpg'm getting ready to die. Forgive me for asking again but can you tell me anything about what I might find in the Next Emanation?"
Kim: Everyone keeps asking me that, and I just keep giving the same answer. I don't know.
Hatil: But you do come from the afterlife?
"
Kim:
"I come from a different reality, maybe another dimension. Maybe it is your afterlife. I don't know. All I do know is that there are countless billions of people there who are born, live and die, just like Emanations_090.jpgyou do here."
Hatil:
"But you did see my people there? You said they were dead?"
Kim:
"Yes, but, look, for all I know, your thanatologists are right, and all I saw were the corporeal remains of your people, and you do go on to a higher consciousness."
Hatil: "But it's also possible that there is no higher existence for us, that when we die we simply cease to exist."
Emanations_091.jpgKim: "I really can't say. I don't know what happens to your people after they die. I don't even know what happens to my people after they die."
Hatil:
"Don't you have thanologists, people who study death?"
Kim:
"Well, sort of. Er, there have certainly been medical experts, philosophers, theologians who have spent a great deal of time debating what happens after death. But no one's come up with an answer yet."
Hatil:
"My people have come to think of death as just another stage Emanations_092.jpgof our existence. There are some people who are even eager to die. If they feel depressed or lonely in this life, they simply move on to the next one."
Kim: "Is that why you're here? Because you're not happy with your life?"
Hatil:
"Ever since the er, accident, life hasn't been easy. But I have to say, this is more my family's idea than it is mine."
Kim:
"Your family?"
Hatil:
"I'm a burden to them right now. It takes a lot of their time and Emanations_093.jpgresources to care for me, and I can't give much back to them. So, there was a family meeting and it was agreed that I should move on to the Next Emanation. You look appalled."
Kim:
"It's not my place to judge your culture, but from my perspective, it's a little chilling to hear that."
Hatil:
"Even though the family did it out of love, and everyone was happy for me, and they said they'd see me when they got to the Next Emanation, I have to admit there is a little voice inside of me that is terrified of dying. And since I've been talking to you, that little voice has started to get louder."

Emanations_109.jpgKes: "Sometimes I come in here and just stare out at the stars for hours. I never get tired of looking at them."

Emanations_113.jpgJaneway: "Captain's Log, supplemental. We've returned to the ring system, and we're preparing to send Ptera back to her dimension. Lieutenant Torres has found a way to temporarily protect the warp core against the vacuoles but she is uncertain how long her measures will be effective."

Emanations_133.jpgKim: "Why?"
Neria: "We want to make a more detailed scan of your microcellular structures and a complete examination of your neurochemistry. This facility isn't equipped for such a detailed bio-analysis. The complex at Paffran has everything we need."
Kim:
"Look. If my ship is still searching for me, they're not gonna stay there forever. I have to get back."
Emanations_135.jpgNeria: "That's not possible. We don't even understand how you got here.
Kim:
"Then maybe I can figure out a way to get back. Let me take a look at one of those cenotaphs."
Neria: There's no time for that. Word about you has spread very quickly Harry, not only in the scientific world, but in the community at large. There are many people who are very nervous about what
Emanations_136.jpgyou represent. Some even see you as a threat to their beliefs about the afterlife. We need to take you to a more secure location. It's for your own protection.
Kim:
"Wait!"
Neria: I'm sorry, Harry. It's out of my control.
Kim: What are you doing?
Hatil:
"Preparing for the transference ritual. Eh, this is a ceremonial
Emanations_137.jpgshroud that's been in my family for five generations."
Kim:
"So they make you wrap yourself in your own death shroud?"
Hatil:
"It's something we look forward to, actually. I remember when my father used this shroud, his father before him. The difference is, when my father put this on there was no doubt in his mind about where he was going."
Kim:
"Can't you just back out? Say you've changed your mind."
Emanations_138.jpgHatil: "I have thought of just walking out and disappearing. I have some friends in the Cararian Mountains. They would be willing to let me stay with them but my family would worry about me. They'd wonder what was happening, if I was all right, if I were hurt. No. Everyone's expecting a transference ritual, and I'm going to give them one."
Kim: "What if you did disappear into the Emanations_139.jpgmountains, but your family thought you were dead? I mean, they're here for a transference ritual, right?"
Hatil:
"Do you realise what you're suggesting?"
Kim:
"It's perfect. Those cenotaphs send your people back to my dimension, which is where I want to go. Voyager's probably still near the asteroid searching for me. As soon as I appear, they'll pick up
my signal and beam me aboard. And you, yEmanations_140.jpgou can just disappear. Your family will think you're dead, and you can live out your life in the mountains."
Hatil:
"Harry, if you go into that cenotaph and go through with the transference ritual, you'll die."
Kim:
"Well, if Voyager can beam me aboard quickly enough, our doctor should be able to revive me. Medicine's pretty advanced in our culture. I've heard of cases where people have been dead for
Emanations_142.jpghours and still been brought back to life."
Hatil:
"But it's not certain?"
Kim:
"No, it's not. But I think this is my only chance to get home."
Hatil:
"The shroud has to be wrapped in a particular way. I'll show you how, but we have to hurry. I'm scheduled for transference in less than an hour."

Emanations_170.jpgDoctor: "Two cc's cordrazine. Relax, Mister Kim. Everything's fine. You're alive."

Emanations_175.jpgJaneway: "Mind if I join you?"
Kim:
"No, not at all. Please."
Janeway:
"Thank you. So, how are you feeling?"
Kim: Better.
"I'll be ready for duty tomorrow morning."
Janeway:
"You're off duty for the next two days."
Kim:
"Captain, I'm fine."
Janeway: "It's not a reflection on your Emanations_176.jpgcapabilities, Ensign. I just want to give you a chance to reflect on what's happened. This may not make much sense to you now, a young man at the beginning of his career, but one of the things you'll learn as you move up the ranks and get a little older is that you wish you had more time in your youth to really absorb all the things that happened to you. It goes by so fast. It's so easy to become jaded, to treat the extraordinary like just another day at the office, but sometimes there Emanations_178.jpgare experiences which transcend all that. You've just had one, Mister Kim, and I want you to live with it for a little while. Write about it, if you feel like it. Paint. Express yourself in some fashion. The Bridge will still be there in two days."
Kim:
"Thank you, Captain. I have been a little preoccupied with the experience. I mean, all those people think that they know what happens after death. They look forward to it. They're prepared for it. But the truth is, none of it's real. They don't Emanations_188.jpghave an afterlife. They just decay inside those asteroids."
Janeway:
"I wouldn't be so sure of that, if I were you. That neural energy their bodies release, it becomes part of the ambient electromagnetic field surrounding the planet. Our readings also indicate the energy is unusually dynamic. There's a great deal of variation and pattern complexity, quantum density."
Kim: "Are you saying you think they do Emanations_189.jpghave an afterlife? That the energy field is where they exist at a higher level of consciousness, just like they believe?"
Janeway: "I'm not certain, but I am certain about this. What we don't know about death is far, far greater than what we do know. See you in two days, Ensign.
"
Kim:
"Thank you, Captain."
