11:30 pm
being down here all day, every day. i'm going crazy. correct me if i'm wrong but isn't that the idea? no, seriously, doc you might want to take me down to sick bay for a full psychiatric evaluation. three or four days of observation at least. see you in 20 days. doc! ghs ) resume recording. , dad, where were we? ah, right. we had just sprung a leak. nothing like a cold shower to wake up the senses. structural integrity is weakening. we've lost communications, shields, propulsion. we can reduce our density by venting plasma
11:31 pm
e, but we will eventually rise to the surface. i think we should stay. stay? i'm not about to be scared off by a few damaged systems. tom, don't you think maybe you're carrying this captains courageous thing a little too far? ng look... . we're only going to get one shot at fixing it. you want to leave, fine. give me an environmental suit and you can pick me up after you've repaired the flyer. you're going for a swim? are you crazy? we already managed to interface with the reactor's computer. maybe we can make the repairs, maybe we can't but i'm not leaving you down here alone. what about you? i'll stay. seven?
11:32 pm
i'm detecting a breach in the containment field. any way we can seal it? we might try reinforcing the field m. try hailing the delta flyer again. chakotay: nothing. what do you think's happened? they may have had an accident. it's possible. possible? captain, i'll need a better explanation than that. what am i supposed to tell the council? clarify something for me: are you more concerned about the lives of the people on that shuttle or your political career? what's that? a gravimetric discharge. the reactor's core is unstable. you'd be unstable if you were as old as this thing. age has nothing to do with it. the reactor's diverting massive amounts of power to its structural integrity field power normally reserved for oceanic containment. that would explain why containment is weakening. kim: looks like
11:33 pm
it seeee the reactor's just trying to keep itself from being crushed. can we initiate a power transfer, stabilize the core? i believe so, but it would be a temporary solution. that's better than nothing. captain, full containment has just been re-established. the deflector beam. negative. the ocean appears to have been stabilized from within. it looks like our team has succeeded. cking up an object on a slow ascent. it's the flyer. you fofod something? i've been studying the generator's database. you're not going to believe this but apparently, your ocean used to be part of a landmass. really? as far as i can tell it was part of a planetary ecosystem inhabited bybya very advanced c. what happened to them?
11:34 pm
know is they launched this reactor into orbit. they used some kind of elaborate kinetic transfer system to draw the water and everything in it up to the reactor. extraordinary. why would anyone want to move an entire ocean? maybe there was some kind of disaster on the planet or maybe it was just an experiment. that must haha been a massive undertaking. took them almost 200 years. and built another civilization. actually, i think they'd be pretty concerned. oh? this f fld reactor that they designed-- it's a pretty amazing piece of technology-- durable... i don't think it's responsible for the loss of containment. but as soon as we made the recalibration the watetestabilized. i don't see what else it could be.
11:35 pm
father: you'll never get into starfleet academy by playing with toys. do your homework. are you listening to me, thomas? janeway: thomas eugene paris i hereby reduce you to the rank of ensign and i sentence you to 30 years of solitary confinement. father: go to your room, young man. that's an order. stay there and think about what i've said. kim: tom... tom, wake up. ( gasps ) bad dream? oh... you could say that. you know, you look like hell. thanks. how'd you get past the guard? the vulcan neck pinch. come to spring me? well, the captain finally gave me permission to visit
11:36 pm
r. how are you doing? oh, thirty days? no problem. how's b'elanna? she misses you. yeah. i know the feeling. so, what have you been doing to pass the time? thinking and... thinking. trying not to think. actually, i started recording a letter to my father. really? yeah. for some reason, i... i wanted to explain to him how i ended up in here. i didn't want him to think... well, anyway, i realized how ridiculous it was. you should finish it. maybe he'll hear it someday. doubtful. you'll feel better getting it off your chest.
11:37 pm
r? that would be pointless. at least i'm consistent. tom... thanks for the visit, harry. see you in 14. what was it you once t td me? that your father used to say you never finished anything?
11:38 pm
11:39 pm
11:40 pm
so, we told consul burkus about the alien field reactor and how his oxygen refineries werereestroying it. he took the news pretty well... at first. the council's very grateful for your help, captain. they've asked me to requeuest the shield and thruster schematics for your delta flyer. we're hoping to design a probe that will allow us to monitor the containment generator. lieutenant torres will give you everything you need. i've also drawn up some designs for an oxygen replication system. free oxygen without extricating it from the water. it won't solve your problems overnighght but it's a start. i'm sure it'll be very helpful. our oxygen extraction levels are still dangerously high. i'm going to recommend shutting down refineries four, five and six. we'l'ltake it under advisement. well... captain, i wish you a safe journey. well, we have a few more suggestions if you'd like to hear them.
11:41 pm
include them in his report. paris: i'm curious. who's going to read that report? it will be given to the subcommittees on life support and agriculture. riga: excuse me, consul i'm not sure you understand the magnitude of the crisis. what you're suggesting could take months. thank you, mr. riga. you should listen to him. if you d d't make some serious changes around here soon that ocean won't be here much longer. as i said, we understand his concerns. do you? it seems to me like you're just trying to sidestep the issue and send us on our way. with all due respect who are you to tell us what to do with our ocean? lieutenant. it's all right, captain. i'd like to respond, but not as a diplomat as a monean. you came here claiming you wanted to learn about our way of life and now, having spent three days here you're suggesting we abandon it. we have an expression:
11:42 pm
it's used to describe someone who has special connection to the waters. my family has lived here for tetegenerations. we protected this ocean, cucuivated it lived in harmony with the animals that inhabit it. can you say the same? i didn't think so. good day, captain. we can't just let this go. what do you want me to do? of course.e.the alm. would you please excuse us, lieutenant. i know you're upset, lieutenant but when you're in a room with me you check that attitude at the door. understood? captptn...
11:43 pm
then you agree with me. yes. and we gave them the help they asked for. we told them w wt we know. now it's up to them to do what they think is appropriate. they're not going to do a damn thing. maybe not, but that's their prerogative. captain... end of discussion lieutenant. at 1400 hours, we'll resume a course for the alpha quadrant. is that clear? is that cleaear? as a bell. hey. here to stamp out intergalactic evil? ( chuckles )
11:44 pm
what? i went on this mission expecting to play out a childhood fantasy but along the way when i realized that ocean would just b b.. gone one day... it started to matter to me. ( chuckles sounds pretty stupid, huh? no. no, it sounds like you found yourself a cause. i never thought of myself as a cause kind of guy. well, for what it's worth, i'm proud of you. thanks. but captain protot's not going to be able to save the day this time, is he?
11:45 pm
council chamber, please. riga... you're dismissed, crewman. i want you to tell me honestly what do you think's going to happen now? i think the bureaucracy isn't going to make more than token changes. isn't there anything else you can do? i don't see how other than taking the oxygen refineries off-line. what would happen-- s hypothetically-- ? well, i suppose they'd have to be rebuilt. yeah, and they'd probably be more willing to redesign them while they're at it. if nothing else, it would grab their attention. are you suggesting...? i'm just asking questions...
11:46 pm
lien worlds... unless, of course, someone makes a direct request. if you can get me downwnhere, i'd be willing to do it. you'd be risking your life. i know. captain, there has just been an unauthorized launch from shuttle bay one-- the delta flyer.
11:47 pm
11:48 pm
11:49 pm
11:50 pm
hail him. no response. try a tractor beam. we're out of range. we're being hailed, captain. it's consul burkus. your shuttlecraft has violated our borders. i demand an explanation. mr. paris is acting without authorization. according to our scans mr. riga is with him. i have to assume they intend to take some sort of... radical action to protect the ocean. then i presume
11:51 pm
warning: hull pressure approaching critical. we're going down too fast. it's the only way we can outrun your ships. janeway to paris. return to voyager immediately. i'm sorry, captain. i can't do that. lieutenant, you are disobeying a direct order. i know. he cut us off. what the hell are they up to? looks like they're heading directly beneath the industrial complex. can we reach them with phasers? unadvisable. it would create a hydro-dynamic shock k ve. what about an old-fashioned depth charge? it should be possible to modify a photon torpedo. we could program it to detonate once it's in proximity to the delta flyer. do it. the torpedo is ready, captain. however the delta flyer has submerged below our targeting range.
11:52 pm
kers have been given five minutes to clear the structure. was this the kind of evacuation you had in mind, captain? can you get them out in time? yes, but... do it. i'll find a way to protect your refinery. end transmission. he descended to avoid attack. if my calculations are correct he will have to come back up to a depth of 2,000 meters to strike his target. giving us a window of opportunityty. precisely. captain, this is tom we're talking about. we're not going to open n re, are we? the second he launched that shuttle. how long till we reach our target? 36 seconds. he's started his ascent. janeway: hail him. kim: go ahead. lieutenant paris, this is your final warning. he's not responding.
11:53 pm
20 seconds to weapons range. are you sure you want to go through with this? you? i've taken you this far. we better arm that missile. missile armed. stand down, mr. paris or i will open fire. still no answer. time. ten seconds. nine... eight... seven... six... five... four... three... two... one. fire.
11:54 pm
the flyer has been disabled. their missile?
11:55 pm
e 52179.4. we've resumed our course toward the alpha quadrant. i now have to turn my attention to a aatter of discipline. lieutenant thomas eugene paris you are guilty of insubordination unauthorized use of a spacecraft reckless endangerment and conduct unbecoming an officer. do you have anything to say? riga needed my help. in d dng so, you disobeyed my direct orders. yes, ma'am. you violated the protocols that govern this crew.
11:56 pm
frankly, you're lucky to be stananng here. i would have destroyed your shuttle if necessary. yes, ma'am. permission to speak freely. riga's people weren't going to listen. they were going to ignore our warnings. you don't know that. riga knew, and i was the only one who could help them. i understand your passion but passion alone doesn't give you the right to take matters into your own hands. and gave you a fresh start. until now, you've been a fine officer. your service on this ship has been exemplary. i really believed you were past this kind of conduct. i've never been very good at playing by the rules. for the better that doesn't mean that serving under your command . at least this time, i broke the rules for a reason for something i believed in. i admire your principles, tom
11:57 pm
i hereby reduce you to the rank of ensign and i sentence you to 30 days solitary confinement. take ensign paris to the brig. i know the way. rise and shine, ensign. your 30 days have been served. report for duty. you may want to shave first. torres to paris. go ahead. rumor has it you're free for dinner. gee, i don't know. are you sure you want to be seen associatatg with an ex-con? my quarters, 0700. that's an order, ensign.
11:58 pm
resume recording. well, i'm out now and back to my duties. i honestly don't know if i'll ever understand yoyo or what went wrong between us but i hope this letter helps you understand me a little better. computer, file letter in my personal database...

12:00 am
lieutenant reed, sir. what the hell's going on? we are having a little trouble with the gravity plating on e-deck. i hope it hasn't caused you any inconvenience. oh, no, no, no, not at all. any idea when you might get it back on-line? commander tucker says it shoululbe any minute, sir. ( power resumes ) ( groaning ) thank you.
12:01 am
? getting from there to here ? it's been a long time ? but my time is finally near ? and i will see my dream come alive at last ? ? i will touch the sky ? and they're not gonna hold me down no morere? ? no, they're not gonna change my mind ? ? 'cause i've got faith of the heart ? ? i'm going where my heart will take me ? ? i've got faith to believe ? i can do anything ? i've got strength of the soul ? ? no one's gonna bend or break me ? ? i can reach any star
12:02 am
? ? i've got faith ? faith of the heart. [captioning sponsored by paramount television and united paramount networks] phlox: not a a ry adventurous breakfast. plomeek broth is a traditional morning meal on vulcan.
12:03 am
blueberry pancakes. they're quite delicious. i've sampled human food on several occasions. it didn't agree with me. give it some time. the vulcan digestive tract is highly adaptable. i prefer to eat the foods i'm accustomed to. there's an old saying: when in fellebia, do as the fellebians do. it's'sifficult enough having to smell all this. eating it is out of the question. water, carbonated. now that's adventurous. we're getting reports from c-deck that it's down to 12?. ensign almack is working on it. well, tell him to hurry up. if the relays up there get too cold they're going to start cutting out on us.
12:04 am
we've got a power fluctuation in the starboard nacelle, sir. we'll get to it as soon as we can. aye, sir. any luck? we know it's got something to do with the plasma exhaust. the flow's been restricted for some reason and it's screwing up half the systems on the ship. tell billy to purge the aft manifold. yes, sir. archer: do you think it might be a good idea to drop out of warp? give me a minute, sir. i think we can figure it out. tucker to bridge. might be a good idea to drop out of warp. going to impulse, sir. commander... i think i've found the problem. something's distorting our wake pattern.
12:05 am
reed: em residue in the exhaust ports? no, we checked; they're clean. malcolm, if we ignited the plasma exhaust what kind of damage would it do to the nacelles? ch damage? sir? if we polarize the hull plating it should be all right as long as we maintained at least half impulse. go to half impulse, ensign. aye, sir. put up a a. hull plating. both nacelles are at maximum. standby to ignite a charge at 80 meters due aft. fire. play it back. slowly. go back and freeze it at the flash point.
