Stardate not given: Voyager encounters a handful of ships carrying the only survivors of a Delta Quadrant race which was all but wiped out by the Borg, and Janeway agrees to the refugees’ requests for supplies. The reminder of the Borg’s destructive power doesn’t help the crew’s perception of Seven of Nine, who requests an assignment to engineering. B’Elanna, who is already suffering her way through the traditional Klingon Day of Honor, doesn’t welcome the former Borg, who has proposed using transwarp flight to speed Voyager’s journey. The transwarp experiment fails, forcing B’Elanna to dump the warp core into open space – and the Ketati refugees take possession of the core before she and Paris can salvage it via shuttle. And the Ketati would also like Janeway to hand Seven of Nine over to them so they can settle old scores.
