Voyager makes friends with the Sikaris, a hospitable race who values stories and literature from other races. When Janeway realizes the Sikaris have the ability to 'fold' space, instantly transporting people 40,000 light years, she is desperate for the technology, but the Sikaris law forbids it. Several Maquis on Voyager refuse to give up on this chance to get over halfway home and try to make a covert trade. Written by

If the Sikarians would have been able to adapt their technology to Voyager's systems, they would easily be able to install it onto one of their own ships. If they brought one small enough to fit into Voyager's shuttle bay, installed the technology on Voyager, made the jump to get Voyager 40,000 light years closer to home, then dismantled the technology and transferred it onto their own ship, they could return to Sikaris with their laws intact and having still helped Voyager.

Captain Kathryn Janeway
You are one of my most valued officers. And you are my friend. It is vital that you understand me here. I need you. But I also need to know that I can count on you. You are my counsel - the one I turn to when I need my moral compass checked. We have forged this relationship for years, and I depend on it! I realize you made a sacrifice for me. But it's not one I would have allowed you to make. You can use logic to justify almost anything. That's its power - and its flaw.
