As soon as we got outside the range of the white dwarf, conditions were too different. " B'Elanna held her peace for a count of five, then said, "You call me crazy? That's the most bizarre thing I've ever heard. " "I don't know," Harry rasped. "And I don't know how long we can be here and not be affected. " The word "captain" reminded B'Elanna that Ziv and his hara had been on the bridge when their ship had crumbled into shards. "What happened to the Monorhans on Voyager? Disintegrate? No, they're all right.
Did that include crew? He shook his head. Did the number even matter? He looked around the bridge and tried to guess what Voyager's crew might be thinking. Is this our fate? he wondered. All because we slowed down for a minute at a binary star, and that was just precisely long enough to put us in precisely the spot where we almost collided with a wandering refugee? What were the odds? In the entire great galaxy, what were the chances these two ships should encounter one other? Chakotay shook his head again and tried to recall which of the Great Spirits had such a sardonic sense of mischief.

" The corners of the alien's mouth curled up, and Ziv sensed his pleasure. "Happy to help," he said. "This is the engine room. Please don't touch anything without asking, but otherwise feel free to look around. " Ziv found the entire ship astonishing, a marvel of clean, rounded edges and efficient design, but nothing amazed him as much as the engine room. Where his vessel's engine bay was a cacophonous cavern of clattering, rattling moving parts watched over by clicking, stuttering, frantic harai, this place was like a temple overseen by slow, solemn acolytes who served an altar of coruscating blue light.
