Star Trek: VoyagerStardate not given: One of Voyager’s shuttles has crashed on a class-M planet and Tuvok is unable to prevent Ensign Bennet from dying from his injuries. Tuvok notices that they are being watched by a small child and introduces himself. Two other children emerge from the jungle and they tell Tuvok that they have been left here to be killed by a creature called the Morrok. Meanwhile, Voyager is making first contact with the Drayans, a highly civilized race that does not invite potential cultural contamination from other species. The first contact is diplomatic enough, but it is made clear that Voyager and her crew are not welcome. When Tuvok’s presence with the children becomes a diplomatic incident, Janeway faces the possibility of a hostile reaction to any attempt to rescue him.
