In the Museum of Aural Antiquities, preparations are underway for a broadcast in tribute to the late actor Visteen Krane, who died mysteriously on the eve of announcing his candidacy for the Presidency. But things begin to go wrong almost immediately. A man is found murdered in the Museum, and the only suspects without an alibi are two intruders who identify themselves as The Doctor and Peri. The Doctor is immediately suspicious of Beth Pernell, Krane’s theatrical agent and potential running mate, who is planning to supplant her late boss as a presidential candidate and use the tribute in his honor for her own publicity. But when another death occurs, the Doctor suspects an even greater danger – a bloodthirsty life form composed of sound waves, which can replicate and transmit itself through any sound-conducting channel…such as, for example, a tribute broadcast which will be heard by millions.

Stardate not given: Seven of Nine installs a new piece of equipment in her Borg alcove which allows her to assimilate data, log entries, records, and other information while she regenerates. But the overload of information is too much for her. At first, Seven is able to solve complex but obscure shipboard problems using information she has assimilated overnight. But then, still trying to process the enormous flow of data, Seven begins to formulate complex conspiracy theories concerning Voyager’s mission, and she begins to make accusations – that Janeway intentionally stranded Voyager in the Delta Quadrant as part of a secret Federation plot to secure strategic alliances across the galaxy; that Chakotay and the other Maquis deliberately led Voyager into a trap set by their ally, the Caretaker; and that even Naomi Wildman is working for either the Maquis or Janeway’s secret organization within the Federation. By the time Janeway realizes what has happened and attempts to help, Seven has hijacked the Delta Flyer to escape what she can only see as a massive conspiracy to destroy one person…herself.

LogBook entry by Earl Green
Stardate not given: On Earth, Lt. Reginald Barclay, late of the Enterprise, has just been dismissed from Project Pathfinder, an unsuccessful attempt to achieve contact with the wayward Starfleet vessel U.S.S. Voyager. Barclay has had brushes with holo-addiction and hypochonrdia before, but his release from the Pathfinder project could be the blackest mark on his record – the introverted engineer has gone from researching ways to contact Voyager to spending all of his available time on the holodeck with simulations of the ship’s crew, to the point that it interferes with his work. He even calls his old friend Deanna Troi for help. But even her counseling can’t get Barclay’s mind off of contacting Voyager’s crew – and finally, he puts everything on the line and becomes an actual security risk to Starfleet to achieve his far-fetched goal.
