With Janeway's approval, Paris enters the Delta Flyer in an inter-species, light-speed shuttle race. Four races, once at war, are holding the race as a celebration of their peace treaty. Wrapped up in competition, Paris forgets a promise to spend a weekend with B'Elanna Torres. Torres is hurt but, with advice from Seven of all people, she decides to partake in the race as Paris' co-pilot. When the race is underway, the couple realize their participation was intentional; the Delta Flyer has been rigged as a bomb by one of the racers seeking to end accord with a bang. Written by

B'Elanna plans a Holodeck holiday for her and Tom on Giedi Prime. This is the Harkonnen home world in the Dune series of novels by Frank Herbert
. Giedi is here described is a lush paradise above and beyond even that of Risa, the pleasure planet often seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation
(1987) and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
(1993), which is ironic, since Herbert describes Giedi Prime as a polluted industrial wasteland. See more
