The Prime Directive is emphatic: Starfleet must never "play God" and interfere in the natural development of other cultures. Chief Engineer Lt. B'Elanna Torres (Roxann Biggs-Dawson), however, has no other choice but to violate that fundamental decree. To save Voyager from being destroyed by overwhelming firepower, she agrees to try to develop an energy module that will sustain the life of a dying line of sentient robots. Working virtually nonstop, Torres succeeds. But it's a success that comes with an unanticipated cost - a cost that makes the lieutenant realize she must destroy the life she's created.

Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. Besieged by attacks from all reaches of an increasingly embattled quadrant, Voyager's officers propose a new course of action. First Officer Chakotay (Robert Beltran) argues for the formation of a protective alliance between the starship and enemy forces. Tuvok (Tim Russ) agrees, citing the Federation-Klingon treaty championed by a legendary Vulcan named Spock. Reluctantly, Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) consents to seek a pact. In unity, there is peace. But, as she discovers, there is also deception and unprecedented danger. A murderous saboteur destroys the summit and, with it, all trust in Janeway's peace attempts. The starship is suddenly more alone and vulnerable than it has ever been.

Stardate 49373.4
Warp 10? Experts say no pilot can achieve this transwarp threshold. But Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) dares to push the envelope. He shatters the barrier and opens the door to a technology that, if controlled, will allow beings to occupy every point in the universe simultaneously. The potential of this new technology is clear to the crew members: mastering it means they could easily return home. But more immediate concerns occupy everyone. Paris, plunged into an accelerated state of evolution by his pioneering flight, mutates into a reptilian-like being, then escapes sickbay for another warp 10 journey. This time he's not alone. He's taking with him a hostage who will transwarp into his reptilian mate. The captive: Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew).

One murder, no motive. "I didn't like the way he looked at me," says the remorseless killer (Brad Dourif). Security Chief Tuvok (Tim Russ), driven by his Vulcan logic, refuses to accept that explanation. He insists there's a reason behind every crime and sets out to discover it by mind-melding with the murderer. But entering the mind of a killer is one thing. Returning whole and unscarred is another. Tuvok is plunged into a war for which he's completely unprepared: the mind's battle between good and evil. It's an experience he'll never forget. If he survives.
