Stardate not given: The crew beams aboard a damaged robot of humanoid design and B’Elanna takes up its repair as a challenge. When she manages to repair its power module, the robot asks her to produce more power modules so that more robots can be created. When Janeway objects, the robots kidnap Torres and threaten to destroy Voyager unless she cooperates. But the Praelor turn out not to be the only robots in the quadrant.
