| First Officer's personal log,
stardate 49005.3. The captain has granted me the use of the
shuttlecraft so that I may perform the pakra, a solitary ritual
commemorating the anniversary of my father's death.
(Chakotay lays out his medicine bundle on the floor of the
CHAKOTAY: A-koo-chee-moya. I pray on this day of memories to speak to
my father, the one whom the wind called Kolopak. Though I am far from
his bones, perhaps there is a spirit in these unnamed skies who will
find him and honour him with my song. A-koo-chee-moya.

HALIZ: There. You see?
RAZIK: We should teach them the price of displaying their markings in
HALIZ: I'll go.
RAZIK: Let Kar do it this time.
HALIZ: He's not ready.
RAZIK: He thinks he is. He's been demanding a chance for weeks to earn
HALIZ: Do you really believe he could do this?
RAZIK: Can you honestly say you knew you were ready for your first
mission, Haliz? Tell him. Tell him today is the day he will finally be

CHAKOTAY: Computer, report.
COMPUTER: The shuttlecraft has sustained phaser fire. Minor damage to
COMPUTER: A Kazon spacecraft closing at one nine five mark six.
CHAKOTAY: Computer, open a channel to the Kazon vessel. This is
Commander Chakotay of the Federation Starship Voyager. Why have you
fired on me?
KAR [on monitor]: You are in Kazon-Ogla space, Federation.
(Everyone say Hi! to Aron
CHAKOTAY: I wasn't aware of that. I have no hostile intentions. Power
down your weapons and I'll leave.
KAR [on monitor]: No one who violates Ogla space leaves.
CHAKOTAY: Look, son, my starship is only a few light years away.
KAR: I am not your son, Federation. I am your executioner.
CHAKOTAY: Chakotay to Kazon vessel. Listen carefully. I do not want a
fight. Stand down or I'll be forced to return fire.
(Bang! Chakotay looks the look and comes in behind the little craft.)
CHAKOTAY: Chakotay to Kazon vessel. I've established a direct weapons
lock on your engine core. This is my final warning. If you don't stand
down, I will destroy your ship.
(Kar fires aft photon torpedoes.)
CHAKOTAY: All right, if that's the way you want to play it.
(Chakotay fires phasers and destroys the Kazon engines, as promised.)
CHAKOTAY: Chakotay to Kazon vessel. Do you read me? Computer, are there
any life signs inside the Kazon vessel?
COMPUTER: Affirmative. One life sign.
CHAKOTAY: Kazon ship, your engine core is critical. You have less than
thirty seconds to evacuate. Do you read me? If you have an escape pod,
you must eject now. Computer, establish a transporter lock on the
COMPUTER: Acknowledged. Targeting scanners.
CHAKOTAY: Prepare to beam him aboard.
COMPUTER: Scanners locked.
(Unconscious Kar is beamed aboard. His ship goes KaBOOM!)
CHAKOTAY: Chakotay to Voyager. Chakotay to Voyager. Computer, damage
COMPUTER: Long-range communications, lateral sensor array and aft
shields are offline.
CHAKOTAY: Great! Welcome aboard.

NEELIX: It's not that I feel that I'm not making contributions as chef
and morale officer.
JANEWAY: You're making significant contributions, Neelix.
NEELIX: Well, if you insist, but
JANEWAY: I can't imagine how Lieutenant Ayala would be handling the
separation from his children without you.
NEELIX: He misses his boys terribly. I wish I could do more for him.
JANEWAY: And your meals are getting to be
JANEWAY: Almost certainly a highlight of every day.
NEELIX: Oh, Captain. You always know how to touch one's heart. Thank
you. When I signed on, I promised you that, I promised you that I would
stand by your side through every danger this quadrant has to offer, as
guide, as strategist, as explorer, as adventurer.
NEELIX: I feel underutilised. I can swashbuckle with the best of them.
JANEWAY: You weren't invited to the holodeck defence simulations, were
TUVOK [OC]: Captain, you are needed on the bridge.
JANEWAY: On my way. I'll see to it you're invited next time. And now,
Mister Neelix, please, join me on the bridge.
NEELIX: Yes, sir. Ma'am. Captain.
We are ready to depart. However, Commander Chakotay has still not
JANEWAY: Have you tried hailing him?
KIM: On all frequencies. No response.
JANEWAY: When was the last time we heard from him?
TUVOK: More than six hours ago.
JANEWAY: Well, according to his flight plan, he's not far. We'll just
have to go get him. I want all away teams back on board now. Mister
Paris, plot a course for Chakotay's last known coordinates.
PARIS: Aye, Captain.
wakes to find his hands tied behind his back.)
KAR: What am I doing here?
CHAKOTAY: You're welcome.
CHAKOTAY: It's a human expression. You thank me for saving your life, I
say, you're welcome. I accept your surrender. Look, I promise you, as
soon as we get back to Voyager, we'll find a Kazon ship and hand you
over to them.
KAR: You should've let me die.
CHAKOTAY: I'm not in the habit of killing children.
COMPUTER: Warning. Alien vessel approaching at zero two two mark eight.
CHAKOTAY: What's your name, son?
CHAKOTAY: Your name.
KAR: Why do you want to know my name?
CHAKOTAY: I want to let them know you're on board.
KAR: I'm called Kar.
CHAKOTAY: Computer, open a channel. Kazon vessel, I have a young man on
board you might know. He goes by the name of Kar. I'd say he's about
thirteen. I'd like to arrange for his transfer before I return to my
ship. Computer, confirm channel is open.
COMPUTER: Confirmed. Transmission has been received.
CHAKOTAY: Talk to them. Tell them you're okay.
COMPUTER: Warning. Kazon vessel has engaged a tractor beam.
CHAKOTAY: Full reverse.
COMPUTER: Unable to comply. Tractor force exceeds available engine
CHAKOTAY: They're pulling us in.
KAR: Kill me. Please.
CHAKOTAY: Why are you so eager for me to kill you?
KAR: Because there are worse things than being killed by your enemy.
(The tiny shuttlecraft is dragged into the massive Kazon ship.)
(Chakotay and Kar are thrown into an area hung with skins and
CHAKOTAY: Look. If you check your long-range sensors, you'll find a big
ship out there. It's called Voyager, and by now it's on its way to find
HALIZ: Kar, I told Razik you weren't ready.
CHAKOTAY: I have a fair idea why I'm here, but why are they doing this
KAR: I was ready, Haliz, ready to kill or die. I felt the flames touch
HALIZ: Go back in, Kar.
KAR: It was this fool, this Federation, who doesn't even have the
courage to kill his enemies. He pulled me out with that transporter
we've heard about. Like the Nistrim and the Relora before you, you come
into our space, showing off your uniforms and displaying the markings
of your Federation with no respect, as if you own this part of space.
But it belongs to us! I tried to kill him, Haliz.
(Haliz knocks Kar down.)
KAR: I want to see Razik. Tell Razik I demand to see him.
CHAKOTAY: Who's Razik? You tell this Razik that Federation Commander
Chakotay demands to see him.
KAR: What are you doing?
CHAKOTAY: Razik is obviously your leader. I'm hoping if he's strong
enough to be in command, he's wise enough to listen to reason.
(Kar shows Chakotay a piece of metal on display.)
KAR: You see this? This is debris from a Nistrim frigate. The man you
are demanding to see destroyed it, killing more than one hundred in a
single shot. Before that, his name was only Ra. Now he is called Jal
Razik. And this tunic belonged to a Relora warrior. He was killed by
the bare hands of another Ogla, called only Hali. Now that man is
called Jal Haliz, one of our greatest fighters. And this bracelet
belonged to the man who killed my brother, my brother, Jal Kanal, who
earned his Ogla name by dying bravely in battle. But I, I will never
earn my name in life or in death, and I have you to thank for that.
We're approaching Chakotay's last known coordinates, Captain.
JANEWAY: All stop. Full sensor scan, Mister Kim.
KIM: Picking up floating debris composed of duranium, magnesite and
electroceramics. Also heavy traces of carbon residue.
JANEWAY: Bridge to Engineering. Prepare to receive debris samples for
TORRES [OC]: Aye, Captain.
KIM: Transport complete.
TUVOK: Captain, I am detecting an ion trail leading away from this
JANEWAY: Chakotay's shuttle.
TUVOK: The signature of the radiation is not consistent with Federation
PARIS: So what are we saying here? That someone blew up Chakotay's
shuttle and then took off?
JANEWAY: That's speculation, Mister Paris, but that trail's the only
clue we have to Chakotay's whereabouts.
PARIS: Laying in a course.
Hello, Kar. I never thought I would see you like this.
KAR: It was not my fault. It was his technology!
RAZIK: Don't make excuses, Kar. An Ogla has no room for excuses.
KAR: No. No excuses.
RAZIK: I forgive you. Know that in your heart.
KAR: No. Please.
(Razik kisses Kar, who bursts into tears.)
RAZIK: You will eat at my right hand tonight. Why did you save him?
It's a very ineffective way of waging war.
CHAKOTAY: I'm not at war with you.
RAZIK: I wish I could say the same.
CHAKOTAY: We're not familiar with this part of space. If I'd seen a map
identifying this as Kazon-Ogla territory, I wouldn't have been anywhere
RAZIK: Unfortunately, our territorial claims change every day. Maps do
not serve us well. You did him a great disservice, you know.
CHAKOTAY: I guess if he had killed me, my uniform would've made you all
a fine trophy.
RAZIK: Your uniform may yet decorate our wall. You may not think you're
at war with us, Federation Commander Chakotay, but everything you are
is a threat to us. The Kazon fought long and hard for their
independence from uniforms like yours.
CHAKOTAY: Uniforms maybe, but not like mine.
RAZIK: Your uniforms, your laws, your technology. You are not welcome
here. Get him something to eat. The execution is tonight.
TORRES: Most of the debris we've examined is composed of a polyduranide
alloy which isn't used in the construction of Federation spacecraft.
JANEWAY: So it wasn't Chakotay's shuttle that was destroyed?
TORRES: This ship was Kazon.
brings other young Kazon with him.)
CHAKOTAY: You get them involved young, Haliz.
HALIZ: As soon as they're old enough to protect their younger siblings.
CHAKOTAY: So they brought you here to see your first human. Take a good
look. You won't see any hate in my eyes. I'm a gentle man from a gentle
people who wish you no harm.
RAZIK: That's enough!
CHAKOTAY: I know you'd like them to hate me, Razik, but I want their
first impression of humans to be a good one.
RAZIK: You've been brought here to learn what it means to be a Kazon
male. You all know Kar. You've learned to fight together, haven't you?
Kar was sent to kill this man to earn his Ogla name. But Kar failed,
and will not earn his name even in death. Who would be willing to kill
(All the boys reach for the proffered weapon.)
RAZIK: So much for first impressions, Federation. I'm proud of you.
Each will get your chance someday. But that's not what we're here for
today. We are here to learn the price of failure in battle.
Razik holds the weapon out to Chakotay.)
RAZIK: Take it.
CHAKOTAY: What for?
RAZIK: So that you can kill Kar, as you should have done in battle.
CHAKOTAY: You want me to kill a child in front of other children? What
would it accomplish?
RAZIK: It will teach these little boys an important lesson. And after
you do that, you'll be free to go. You may think I want your friend Kar
to die but you'd be wrong. I've seen too many Ogla die at the hands of
our enemies. That is why you must learn there are no second chances in
battle. That is why Kar must die.
CHAKOTAY: If I refuse?
(No answer. The weapon drops to the floor. Chakotay bends to pick it
up, attacks Razik and gets him on his knees with arms pinned behind his
back. He holds the weapon to the leader's head.)
CHAKOTAY: I'll be needing my shuttle back.
HALIZ: Do you really think you can escape us in that little vessel of
CHAKOTAY: That's a chance I'm willing to take. What about you?
RAZIK: Let the coward run. Prepare his shuttle.
CHAKOTAY: Want to come? There doesn't seem to be much of a future for
HALIZ: He'd rather die than run like a Calogan dog with you, Federation.
(So Kar hits him and takes his gun.)
KAR: If I stay here, I'll die without a name. And Razik taught me only
cowards die without a name.
RAZIK: You won't find your name running after the Federation, Kar.
KAR: Maybe not, but that's a chance I'm willing to take. I'll show you
how to disable the weapons systems.
and Chakotay fly away from the Kazon ship.)
KAR: Will Razik be all right?
CHAKOTAY: Don't worry, he's only stunned.
CHAKOTAY: It didn't take them long to get those weapons back online,
did it? Computer, prepare to go to warp.
KAR: No! Their ship is much clumsier at lower speeds. We should try to
CHAKOTAY: You're the boss. Initiate evasive pattern theta two. Full
KAR: I can give you the shield frequencies of their ship. We can hit
them back easily.
CHAKOTAY: It may mean something to you to die a violent death, but I'd
like to get out of this without killing or being killed.
KAR: You'd rather die in your sleep a wrinkled old man?
CHAKOTAY: Sounds about right. Computer, damage report.
COMPUTER: Aft shields at sixty three percent.
CHAKOTAY: We're not going to make it like this. Computer, scan for an
COMPUTER: There is an M-class moon at bearing one zero eight mark one

KAR: That's Tarok, where the Ogla conduct training exercises.
CHAKOTAY: Anybody training there now? Computer, lay in a course to the
moon. Evasive pattern omega one. Maximum impulse.
(The Kazon keep shooting at them.)
COMPUTER: Warning. Aft shields have been penetrated. Hull breach is

COMPUTER: Transport is not recommended. The moon is out of safety
(The shuttlecraft tumbles, out of control.)
Captain, the ion trail is beginning to dissipate.
JANEWAY: All stop.
KIM: I'm picking up debris again. More duranium, magnesite, carbon
residue. It's the remnants of another ship.
JANEWAY: Bridge to Engineering. Lieutenant Torres, prepare to receive
another debris sample.
TORRES [OC]: Acknowledged.
KIM: Transport under way.
Torres to Bridge. Sample received.
JANEWAY [OC]: Let me know when you've got something, B'Elanna.
TORRES: I've got something
Right now. It's a piece of Chakotay's shuttle.
buzzard cirles the bodies of Chakotay and Kar, lying on a rocky
outcrop. They wake. Chakotay is holding a gun.)
KAR: It worked?
CHAKOTAY: The computer said that transport wasn't recommended. It
didn't say it was impossible. With any luck, Razik will think we didn't
survive the explosion. Then maybe you'll get your name for dying in
KAR: In battle? That wasn't a battle. We didn't even shoot back. And
now I'm stranded here with you.
CHAKOTAY: Yes, you're stranded here with me, and I'm stranded here with
you, because for some reason that escapes me at the moment, I keep
saving your life. Now, if you want to hate me for that, fine. But I'd
really appreciate it if you kept it to yourself.
KAR: You don't
CHAKOTAY: To yourself! First thing we've got to do is find some shelter
and get out of this heat. Any suggestions?
CHAKOTAY: I think we're finally beginning to understand each other.
KAR: You don't know what you're doing.
CHAKOTAY: What did I just say?
KAR: Get down.
(Kar throws a stone and a beam blasts it to atoms.)
CHAKOTAY: What the hell was that?
KAR: A proton beam. They're hidden everywhere, along with biomagnetic
traps and disruptor snares.
KAR: I told you, the Ogla train on this moon. I was here myself last
year with Razik.
CHAKOTAY: So I guess you know your way around.
KAR: I know that you're in my territory. And if you want to live to
become that wrinkled old man, you're going to have to do what I say.
CHAKOTAY: Well, it looks like you just saved my life. Twice more and
we'll be even.
EMH [on monitor]: I finished analysing the shuttle debris, and I found
no evidence of human remains.
JANEWAY: Then it's possible Chakotay wasn't killed in the explosion.
EMH [on monitor]: That is correct.
JANEWAY: That's the first good news I've heard all day. Thank you,
EMH [on monitor]: My pleasure. Now, would you mind having someone
transport this junk to the Cargo Bay? It's cluttering up my lab.
JANEWAY: Of course, Doctor. All right, then. If Commander Chakotay
wasn't in the shuttle, where is he?
TUVOK: From the dispersal pattern of the debris, we've been able to
extrapolate Chakotay's course prior to the explosion. It appears he was
heading for an M-class moon in this system.
KIM: And we found a residual energy displacement within the debris
field that isn't consistent with the explosion itself.
JANEWAY: You think he may have transported to that moon?
TUVOK: We tried to scan the surface, but there is intense radiothermic
TORRES: It appears to be coming from subterranean energy sources,
several carefully concealed weapons systems, phaser banks, force
fields, proton dischargers
KES: Kazon. When they captured me, I saw how they concealed their
NEELIX: I believe you call them booby traps.
JANEWAY: Then this moon is some kind of Kazon fortification?
KES: Or it may simply be a training site.
NEELIX: For the Kazon, live ammunition is a very effective teaching
JANEWAY: In the absence of evidence to the contrary, I choose to
believe Chakotay made it to that moon. Mister Kim, see if you can
determine the most probable location he would have beamed to.
Lieutenant, you and I will lead the away team.
TUVOK: As you wish, Captain, but I must point out that due to
radiothermic interference, we will not be able to communicate with the
TORRES: I'm already working on a dampening field to cut through the
interference, but it'll take several hours at least.
JANEWAY: I don't want to wait that long, but keep trying. Neelix, Kes,
you're our two Kazon experts. Kes, you'll come with Tuvok and me.
Neelix, you said you wanted more to do? Well, now's your chance. I want
you on the bridge with Mister Paris in case we run into any Kazon ships.
NEELIX: Don't worry, Captain. You can count on me to keep those
nefarious Kazon at bay.
has found himself a handy long piece of wood. A pile of stones are
glowing, presumably from being heated by an energy weapon.)
KAR: What are you doing?
CHAKOTAY: I'm setting my tricorder to emit a homing signal.
KAR: What for?
CHAKOTAY: So when my people show up, they'll know where to look for me.
KAR: They won't come. They'll think you're dead.
CHAKOTAY: They're very persistent. I'm betting they haven't given up on
KAR: Maybe I should kill you, and steal your technology and deliver it
to my people. Then they'd have to give me my name.
CHAKOTAY: You just won't give up, will you?
KAR: You won't stop me from earning my name, Federation.
CHAKOTAY: Not Federation. Chakotay. That's my name.
KAR: Did you have to earn it?
CHAKOTAY: No, not exactly.
KAR: Then your name means nothing.
CHAKOTAY: My name was a gift from my tribe. I cherish it every day of
my life, just as I cherish the Federation uniform.
KAR: I should respect you because you wear that uniform?
CHAKOTAY: Your name, my uniform. Not much difference. We both have to
KAR: What did you have to do to earn your uniform?
CHAKOTAY: Study. Years of study. Learning about science and ships and
KAR: I suppose they don't expect you to prove your battle skills.
CHAKOTAY: No. They prepared us to defend ourselves in battle. They
prepared us very well. And we had to pass many difficult tests before
we were given the right to wear the uniform.
KAR: You're saying that my name and your uniform mean the same thing,
but you're wrong.
CHAKOTAY: Why? What's so different about us, aside from the fact that I
keep saving your life and you keep threatening to kill me?
KAR: I must protect my territory. Territory is power.
CHAKOTAY: Let me tell you something. I have no interest in your
territory or anybody else's. My people taught me a man does not own
land. He doesn't own anything but the courage and loyalty in his heart.
That's where my power comes from. I think we both could use some sleep,
(Later, Chakotay is sleeping when Kar picks up the tricorder and turns
it off. Then he points the weapon at Chakotay, but he can't pull the
trigger and throws it away. He opens the tricorder again and sits
is getting comfy in Chakotay's seat.)

RAZIK [on viewscreen]: Jal Razik, First Maje of the Kazon-Ogla. I will
speak to your captain.
PARIS: I'm in command right now, so you can speak to me.
RAZIK [on viewscreen]: You are trespassing in Ogla space. Why do you
orbit our moon?
PARIS: Just stopped to make a few repairs. We'll be on our way in no
RAZIK [on viewscreen]: That is a lie. You are here looking for your
PARIS: Now, how would you know about that?
RAZIK [on viewscreen]: Quite simply. We killed him.
PARIS: Under what circumstances?
RAZIK [on viewscreen]: He kidnapped a young man. During his escape, it
became necessary to destroy his ship. No doubt you found the remains,
so I suggest you depart immediately.
PARIS: Thanks for the advice.
NEELIX: What a most unusual offer. A Kazon-Ogla Maje allowing a
trespasser to leave his space unharmed. What would the other Kazons say
about this new merciful attitude of the Ogla?
RAZIK [on viewscreen]: Don't tempt me, Talaxian. I would just as soon
NEELIX: Would you?
NEELIX: No, I don't think so. That would attract every rival Kazon sect
to your secret training base, wouldn't it? Now, I know your ships,
Maje. I even sold a few Plaxan sensors to the Ogla a few years back. I
have no doubt that you read the same life signs on that moon that we
HALIZ [on viewscreen]: Perhaps one of those life signs belongs to your
RAZIK [on viewscreen]: If you've detected the extensive weaponry
deployed on the moon, know this. With one remote command, I can cause
that weaponry to self-destruct, destroying the surface of the moon and
everyone on it.
NEELIX: Neither of us wants that, do we? Think of the cost of replacing
all those weapons. Awfully hard to come by in this region. And it would
make you so vulnerable to your enemies.
PARIS: We'll leave as soon as we've retrieved our crewmen, all of them,
including Chakotay, if he's alive. And if one of your people is with
him, he'll be returned to you.
KIM: They're moving into a lower orbit. Looks like they're intending to
enter the atmosphere.
PARIS: I need communication with the surface, B'Elanna, and soon.
TORRES: I still haven't been able to get the dampening field working. I
can't even give you an estimate.
KIM: Shall we take Voyager down?
PARIS: I've already run a soil analysis. The surface won't support a
TORRES: Then I guess the Captain's going to be greeted by some
NEELIX: At least we bought her some time.
CHAKOTAY: Good morning. How did you sleep?
CHAKOTAY: Really? You seemed a little restless to me.
KAR: What do you mean?
CHAKOTAY: All that skulking around, throwing things.
KAR: You were awake?
CHAKOTAY: You think I'm going to get much sleep around an Ogla warrior
who's threatened to kill me? Why didn't you go through with it?
KAR: I am a coward.
CHAKOTAY: I don't believe that. I don't believe you do either. I think
maybe you're beginning to realise I'm not your enemy, and only a fool
would kill a friend.
KAR: If you are my friend, then you're my only one. What happens to me
now? Where do I go?
CHAKOTAY: Would any other Kazon sect accept you?
KAR: I would be a goven, an outcast. Each Kazon sect I meet would cut
one digit off, and send me away.
CHAKOTAY: How many Kazon sects are there?
KAR: It changes every day. Yesterday there were eighteen.
CHAKOTAY: I guess you could come with us.
KAR: To do what, dress in a uniform?
CHAKOTAY: You wouldn't have to wear a uniform.
KAR: And the closer you get to your home, the farther I would be from
mine. If only you had killed me.
Captain, four life forms approaching. Forty metres. They appear to be
RAZIK: Please, put your weapons away. We've come to help you.
JANEWAY: Help us? With what?
RAZIK: We made contact with your ship and learned of the plight of your
missing crewman. We've come to offer our assistance in finding him.
JANEWAY: That's very kind of you.
RAZIK: You're walking on very dangerous ground. There are concealed
weapons everywhere. Come. We will lead you through them.
JANEWAY: Very well.
CHAKOTAY: Tell me about the other uniforms, the ones the Kazon fought.
KAR: The Trabe. The Kazon shared their homeworld, if you can call it
sharing. They had everything, we had nothing, until we took it from
them in the revolt, twenty six years ago.
(The tricorder beeps.)
KAR: What is it?
CHAKOTAY: People coming this way, humans and Kazon.
KAR: What are we going to do?
CHAKOTAY: There's only one way back to the Ogla for you, and that's if
you earn your name. So I guess that's what you'll have to do.
KAR: But how?
CHAKOTAY: You're going to have to kill me.
The signal seems to be coming from some caves approximately forty
RAZIK: Your technology continues to amaze us. It would have taken us
weeks to track them. After this is over, we have to discuss an alliance.
JANEWAY: I would welcome your friendship, Maje.
KES: Captain Janeway, I'm reading elevated radiothermic levels here.
RAZIK: The Ocampa female is correct. This is a particularly dangerous
place. We lose many trainees here. Perhaps you would prefer if we
proceeded alone. They can't be far now.
JANEWAY: Thanks, but I think we'll stick together.
PARIS [OC]: Voyager to Away team.
JANEWAY: We're here, Mister Paris.
We finally broke through the interference, Captain. Are you all right?
[OC]: We had a run-in
JANEWAY: Everything is fine. We have the assistance of the Ogla.
That's what I was going to tell you to expect.
JANEWAY: Can you lock onto Commander Chakotay?
PARIS [OC]: Stand by.
Voyager to Chakotay. Do you read?
CHAKOTAY [OC]: I'm fine, Paris.
PARIS: Stand by for us to beam you out of there.
CHAKOTAY [OC]: Belay that, Voyager. Stand by.
CHAKOTAY: According to my readings, the away team's only fifty metres
PARIS [OC]: Right, but don't
CHAKOTAY: And alert Sickbay to prepare for a code white resuscitation.
Did you say code white?
CHAKOTAY [OC]: Correct.
CHAKOTAY: I don't have time to explain now.
CHAKOTAY [OC]: Chakotay out.
CHAKOTAY: It'll be all right. Our technology can revive me even if I'm
brain dead for two minutes.
KAR: Why are you doing this?
CHAKOTAY: Like you said, it's my fault you don't have your name. I
can't leave you behind like this.
CHAKOTAY [OC]: Chakotay to Away team.
JANEWAY: Good to hear your voice, Commander.
CHAKOTAY [OC]: Captain, proceed with caution. I've been taken prisoner
by a young Kazon. He's threatening to kill me.
HALIZ: This way. It's safer.
TUVOK: I would beg to differ. Based on these readings, that way would
seem the logical choice.
RAZIK: I must apologise for my comrade. I believe he's trying to
(Janeway, Tuvok, Kes and the security guard walk into a forcefield
bubble. They're trapped.)
RAZIK: So, your technology is not always an ally. Sometimes it betrays
you. Pity. I'm afraid you would not score well in our training
JANEWAY: Away team to Voyager.
KES: Captain, that panel is a micro-generator.
JANEWAY: You're right. If we can get a narrow beam through the field,
we can disable it.
TUVOK: We could try remodulating the phasers to a higher frequency
JANEWAY: Make it fast.
I've been waiting for you, Razik.
RAZIK: So, the Federation Commander is your prisoner.
KAR: I only came with him so I could have another chance to kill him.
RAZIK: So you could earn your name.
KAR: That's what I've been hoping for, Razik. But you taught me well. I
know what you're going to say. You've said it so many times before. In
battle, there are no second chances.
(The Voyager group enter.)
KAR: (to Chakotay) But you are not my enemy, he is.
(Kar shoots Razik.)
KAR: My name is Jal Karden, Kazon-Ogla. You are First Maje now, Haliz.
My life is yours. Kill me if you wish, or let me live and I will follow
you into battle whenever you command.
HALIZ: Jal Karden, Kazon-Ogla.
KAR: The Federation does not belong here. If we meet again, I will not
hesitate to kill you.
CHAKOTAY: I understand.
JANEWAY: Janeway to Voyager. Five to beam up.
CHAKOTAY: A-koo-chee-moya. I pray on this day of memories to speak to
my father, the one whom the wind called Kolopak. Father, if you can
hear me among these unnamed stars, I ask you to continue to watch over
me as you've always done. I ask you also to watch over a boy called
Karden, who has a difficult path to travel. A-koo-chee-moya.
