A stable wormhole leading to Earth suddenly appears in Voyager's path. Everything seems perfect, including sensor readings, transmissions from Starfleet, even letters from home promising warm welcomes and promotions, but Seven of Nine insists it's too good to be true and that the Captain should be cautious. When she seeks The Doctor's opinion, he is deactivated. When she provides proof, she is ordered to be put into stasis. She resists, unsuccessfully, and Voyager falls into a clever alien deception.

Did You Know?


One of the few instances the mess hall set was used as a corridor. Specifically the windows. It appears as a corridor looking out into space. See more »


When Seven enters the astrometrics lab and first learns of the "wormhole," she states that the "wormhole" is only 300 million kilometers away. Later on when she first contacts Qatai, she says that Voyager is on an intercept course 3.4 light-years from his position. Also, Tom says that they are still several hours away from the "wormhole," which is in line with the distance Seven states while talking to Qatai, as Voyager would be able to cover a distance of 300 million kilometers at full impulse in a matter of minutes as full impulse is 1/4th the speed of light.

Chakotay: [attempting to persuade Seven to go into stasis] I realize the prospect of returning to Earth is frightening to you. It's perfectly natural for you to resist the unknown. But you're in good hands. Resistance is futile.
