Star Trek: VoyagerStardate 48623.5: Investigating the possibility of a new element detected in the rocky bodies comprising a planet’s ring system, an away team beams down to one of the asteroids and finds the ground littered with dead bodies encased in a residual shell. As the away team conducts a visual survey – at Chakotay’s request to avoid desecrating the ritually-disposed-of deceased – a subspace phenomenon occurs, prompting an emergency beam-out. But when the away team transports back to Voyager, Kim doesn’t return, his place taken by a newly-arrived body. Harry finds himself among a race of ritualistic people who believe he has returned from their afterlife, and is constantly besieged with questions about “the next emanation.” An alien named Patera, in the meantime, is revived aboard Voyager. She finds herself losing faith in the possibility of the next life, while Harry is the subject of intense curiosity and study by Patera’s people.
