Stardate 52438.9: On an arid planet, scavenger Noss fends for herself against other hunters, all of whom have been stranded by this world’s unusual gravity well. Noss watches as another ship crash-lands violently on the planet, and reluctantly befriends its two pilots after one of them rescues her from the aliens. Even though these two newcomers are also alien to Noss, she finds herself falling in love with one of them, but for reasons she will never understand, her feelings will never be reciprocated. Noss must decide whether or not there is still any reason to aid these two wanderers. How can she warrant risking her life to help them when the one who calls himself Tuvok cannot comprehend her affection?
