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

[Tom Paris wants to participate in a race, much against Tuvok's wishes
Captain, this race is more than just a sporting event. Until recently, this region was a war zone. Four different species fought for nearly a century to control it.
Now, for the first time, they're competing peacefully, to commemorate the new treaty that ended the war.
This race embodies everything the Federation values: a peaceful coexistence, free exchange of ideas...
Captain Kathryn Janeway
I think it's a great idea.
