Voyager is pulled into a sub-space corridor, traveling 200 light-years until pushed out by the Turei who claim ownership of the labyrinth. After refusing to let the Turei wipe Voyager's computer of data regarding the corridors, the ship lands on a nearby planet. 900 years ago the population sought shelter from nuclear winter in stasis pods, intent on waking 5 years later. As Voyager helps the Vaadwaur rebuild, Neelix and Seven of Nine uncover historical data that the Vaadwaur were once ruthless conquerers in the Delta Quadrant. Uncovering the Vaadwaur plot to steal Voyager and her technology, Janeway must try to wiggle free from the Turei above and the Vaadwaur below. Written by Meribor

Explanation of title: upon finding a field of stasis chambers, Chakotay is reminded of a Greek myth about dragon's teeth. He mentions a slain dragon, whose teeth were scattered and took root, eventually springing into warriors from the ground. Cadmus, a Phoenician Prince, was ordered by Athena, or perhaps Nike, to sow the dragon's teeth, birthing fully-armed warriors - an unintended windfall of war. Once born, the warriors began to fight among themselves, until only five were left; the survivors helped Cadmus found the city of Thebes. See more »


The Prime Directive, with which Voyager's actions during this whole affair would seem to be at odds, is conveniently ignored and never even mentioned at any point in the episode. See more »


Gedrin: I'm curious. Have you heard of us, the Vaadwaur?
Neelix: Um, I'm afraid there aren't many records from that period. But 'vaadwaur' is a word in the Old Tongue; it means, er... 'foolish'.

Another case of unintended consequences
1 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Voyager is thrown into the atmosphere of a dead planet. How did this happen? A xenophobic species caught them in their space and refused to discuss the matter--tossing the ship onto the barren planet. However, Seven makes an interesting discovery-- many, many people in suspended animation! In fact, these folks have been stored her for almost a thousand years. Naturally her inclination is to be helpful and wake them up, but it's a case of unintended consequences, as these sleeping folks are FAR worse than the people who tossed Voyager there in the first place! And to defeat these sleepers, the xenophobes and Voyager might just have to work together.

This is a neat episode. Once again, it illustrates that if Voyager JUST focused on getting home, everyone's life would be a lot better! Dang galactic do-gooders!!
