Voyager is instructed by Starfleet to retrieve a probe that was sent from Earth in the 21st century and was not heard from since. It's last known whereabouts is where Voyager is now. Janeway sends some men to retrieve it but they discover that the planet it is on, is inhabited and the inhabitants believe that the probe's a weapon because it emanates an energy that is harming them. They tell Janeway to help them relocate. But Seven thinks they can cure them and remove the energy that is harming them. And when Janeway tells them, they don't believe her. They insist that Janeway relocate them and if she doesn't they will kill her people and they kill one of them to prove they're serious. Written by
