Voyager answers a distress call from an alien device with bio-neural circuitry and sentience. Voyager beams the 'survivor' aboard, and further scans show it is a highly-sophisticated warhead capable of mass destruction. The Doctor, who speaks its technical language, fights for its rights when the rest of the crew seeks to distance the ship before the warhead fulfills its purpose. His efforts are unappreciated when, facing shut down, the warhead's intelligence commandeers The Doctor's program and several ships systems. It's ultimatum is clear: Voyager will deliver the warhead to its target or be destroyed.
