Storyline

Voyager is instructed by Starfleet to retrieve a probe that was sent from Earth in the 21st century and was not heard from since. Its last known whereabouts is where Voyager is now. Janeway sends some men to retrieve it but they discover that the planet it is on is inhabited, and the inhabitants believe that the probe is a weapon because it emanates an energy that is harming them. They tell Janeway to help them relocate. But Seven thinks they can cure them and remove the energy that is harming them. And when Janeway tells them, they don't believe her. They insist that Janeway relocate them and if she doesn't they will kill her people and they kill one of them to prove they're serious. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

The unfinished ship-in-a-bottle of the USS Voyager built by Joe Carey and seen on Janeways desk at the end of the episode was actually a 1996 Hallmark Keepsake ornament which had been modified by production staff. See more »

Goofs

Although it's difficult to spot in some of the subterranean scenes, Neelix doesn't appear to be wearing his alien contact lenses throughout the whole episode. Ethan Phillips real brown eyes are visible. This is especially noticeable in any scenes taking place on Voyager. See more »

Cool make-up.
8 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Now that the Federation can have regular contact with Voyager, they ask that they look for the Friendship 1 probe that was sent to the Delta Quadrant a long, long time ago. However, when the shuttle team land, they find that the place IS inhabited (despite the sensors) and these people are really angry. They blame the Earth for their plight, as they used the technology that powered Friendship 1 (antimatter) and destroyed themselves. Sure, a few folks remain, but they look nasty and are suffering from the aftereffects of the antimatter explosion. Not surprisingly, these folks are very hostile and soon take some of the away team prisoner. Now they try to use the team as a bartering tool and things get even nastier very quickly.

This episode features some very nice make-up effects. The sore- covered aliens look really realistic and nasty. While the baby didn't look great--the rest of them sure did. In addition, the story is pretty exciting and worth seeing.

By the way, this story seems a lot like an episode from "Space: 1999" concerning a probe powered by a 'Queller Drive'. This system ended up killing things because of its toxic emissions--and soon folks effected by it come looking for retribution!
