"Star Trek: Voyager: Innocence (#2.22)" (1996)
Alcia: May this day find you at peace and leave you with hope.
[traditional Drayan blessing]

Alcia: Do your people consider advanced technology to be their highest achievement?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Not as an end in itself. The purpose of all this is to help us gain knowledge about the universe, and the people in it.

Alcia: My people believe that physical matter is only an illusion. The body is not the true self, only a representation.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: One of our greatest philosophers, Plato, wrote that what we see around us are only poor shadows of ideal objects which exist on a higher plane.
Alcia: That is similar to our teachings. Our connection to what you call a "higher plane" is more important than our attachment to this brief existence, however real it may seem.

Alcia: Near the end of life, we reach a stage of complete innocence. We free ourselves from all responsibilities to this life; then we leave it peacefully.

Alcia: It's perfectly natural to be frightened. You're taking a step into the unknown. The attendants would have helped you prepare yourself; you were never meant to face this time alone.
Tressa: We weren't alone. Tuvok was here. He stayed with us and made us feel safe. He told us there was no morrok and that we shouldn't be afraid. He took care of us - even when we didn't behave as well as Vulcan children.

Alcia: Tressa. May this night see you safely home.
