Storyline

A Voyager sensor scan reveals what seems to be a previously undiscovered chemical element in a group of asteroids. Some of the asteroids support a class M environment so, an away team is dispatched to investigate. The away team discovers the asteroid to be a burial ground for an unknown culture. Chakotay, a Native American, advocates a respectful, unintrusive perusal of the bodies and their bizarre web-like enclosures. The unknown new chemical apparently is a bi-product of the bodies' decomposition process. The away team detects a peculiar phenomenon developing and activate their tricorders to investigate. Chakotay calls for a transport off of the asteroid. Before all of the crew can be evacuated Ensign Kim is redirected to another planet and an alien is beamed aboard Voyager instead. A peculiar "First Contact" offers a chance for Kim to learn about another race, while the Voyager crew is faced with an even more challenging First Contact of their own. Written by tafkas

Life after death
13 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An away team is sent to investigate unusual emanations coming from an asteroid and while there discover many shroud wrapped bodies. Chakotay, in Native American fashion, wishes to leave them alone and not interfere with another's burial customs while Kim wishes to further investigate. When transporting back to the Voyager there is a glitch and an alien's body from the asteroid is transported to the Voyager and Kim is transported to the alien's home planet. The alien is revived on the Voyager and she then conveys that her culture believes in an afterlife of such a nature as is belied by the corpses on the asteroid. The scenes between the alien and Kes are very touching. Meanwhile on the alien planet, Kim's appearance has upset the locals since his report of what was found on the asteroid is contrary to their belief system. One of the aliens in particular is questioning what he has believed his entire life. This episode was very interesting and didn't have the feel of a smarmy attack on contemporary religious beliefs. The final scene between Captain Janeway and Ensign Kim is very good – Janeway is the wise mentor and Kim the young student trying to make sense of the world around him and his experiences in it. Nicely done.
