Bari Hochwald ...


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

Stardate: 54775.4

As we see on Enterprise, the Vulcans established a presence on Earth since First Contact, and supervised Earth's progress with warp technology and space exploration. Shortly thereafter, Earth sends the "Friendship One" probe to pre-warp civilizations.

Fast forward to the present: With regular communications to the Alpha Quadrant established, Starfleet sends a mission to Voyager: retrieve the 21st Century probe sent from Earth.

Once the probe is located on a nearby planet the away team is shocked to learn of the non-friendly impact it has made.
