Harry Kim and B'Elanna Torres take the Delta Flyer in search of dilithium. They crash on a pre-warp planet and B'Elanna is found by a local, Kelis the Poet. He believes she is 'an eternal,' a superior being sent from Heaven. He writes plays, 'The Voyager Travels,' based off of her logs which he performs with his acting troupe. 8 days after the crash, B'Elanna awakens, bound and injured. Kelis informs her she is his muse, but he needs more stories to put on or his 'patron' will let them starve. B'Elanna makes an offer: Kelis the Poet will retrieve some 'winter's tears' (dilithium) and she'll tell him more about 'Shining Voyager, Far From Home.'
Did You Know?
B'Elanna tells Kelis to bring her a metal sheet that is "...90% bronze and 10% copper..." Classical bronze is, by definition, an alloy of 90% copper and 10% tin (sometimes with trace amounts of other metals or nonmetals, such as aluminium, manganese, nickel, zinc, arsenic, phosphorus or silicon); modern bronze is typically 88% copper and 12% tin. B'Elanna's request is both redundant (because bronze is copper and tin) and nonsensical (because she is asking for bronze with extra tin in the mixture when tin should already be in the metal mix).
