Stardate 49447.8: After coming upon a debris field, Torres realizes that it was caused by a powerful Cardassian weapon which had been brought to the Delta quadrant by the Caretaker. Due to the jump, its navigational system thinks that the Delta Quadrant’s densely populated Rakosa 5 is its target instead of the Cardassian fuel depot on Aschelan 5 in the Alpha Quadrant. Unable to disarm the warhead, both Torres and Janeway face destruction as they try to save the planet.
