Stardate not given: For the first time in seven years, the starship Voyager receives specific orders from Starfleet. The crew is to track down a 22nd century unmanned space probe which was last tracked in the vicinity of Voyager’s current position. The probes last known location is discovered, but to Janeway’s horror, its technology was analyzed by a Delta Quadrant race which reverse-engineered it – and used it to create potent weapons of mass destruction. Janeway must find a way to make reparations for an unforseeable mistake made before the Federation’s Prime Directive existed – and when her away team become hostages, they may pay the ultimate price for mistakes made before the Federation’s non-interference directive existed.
