Captains Log Stardate 76182.4: Voyager has reached the area where Seventh Lena was at when she sent us the message. So far we have found nothing.

The Mess Hall:
The room was relatively quiet. Several crewmembers were just walking in, heading for Neelix's galley. The mini stage in the corner of the room was being set up for a Virus performance.

"When are we going to do the video?" Craig was asking his bandmates.

"Soon, be patient," Lena muttered as she set up microphones. She pushed a small strand of her now blonde hair behind her shoulder.

"Oh great, look who's come in," Jessie groaned, eyeing the nearest door to the room. Her bandmates looked.

Lena looked at Jessie. "Who's the old guy?"

Jessie was about to reply, but James answered for her. "Crap, I thought he'd be gone by now."

"That's no way to speak about your father," Peter said.

"I thought he told you to stay away.." Jessie said.

"I know, I'm proud of him," Peter said.

Everyone stared, open mouthed, at him. "What did you say?" James asked slowly.

"The way you defended your family, that's the way I've always wanted you to be," Peter replied.

Lena eyed her two friends suspiciously. "What happened?"

"Hard to explain," Jessie replied.

"May I ask though, what are you lot doing on a stage?" Peter asked.

Lena pushed another strand of hair back. "Duh, we're a band and we're going to perform."

"My son's in another band," Peter muttered.

Lena, Faye, Craig, Naomi & Triah looked at James. "Another band?" they all said in unison.

"Ian and Danny dared us to do it. We were only a band for a little while," Jessie said.

"Why am I learning this now?" Craig asked. The rest of the band rolled their eyes.

"Erm, are we going to perform or what?" Lena asked.

All she got for a reply was 'yeah' or 'whatever' from the rest of the band.

Peter rolled his eyes, and he headed for a table. He watched as the band performed 'Chain Reaction'.

Tom walked in the room, and he sat down at Peter's table. "Hi, you don't mind if I sit here?"

"No, not at all," Peter muttered in response.

"The Captain wants to know if you're staying or leaving," Tom said.

Peter glanced at him briefly. "Staying, if I leave I'll have nothing. Here I have a family, even though they all hate me."

Tom tried to say something comforting, but he couldn't think of anything. Instead he just watched the band perform.

After three minutes the band finished their performance, and they got off the stage. The room was very busy, so there was hardly anywhere to sit. Faye eyed Peter's table.

"There's room on that table," she said.

"I'd rather sit on the floor," Jessie grumbled.

Lena, Craig, Triah, Faye and Naomi ignored her remark, and they sat down at Peter and Tom's table. Peter noticed Jessie and James standing as far away as they could. He sighed, and he headed out of the room. James and Jessie then sat down at the table.

"You two act like a bunch of kids," Lena muttered as she chewed on her hair. The rest of the band, and Tom, watched her.

"Yeah, and you don't?" James said.

"Exactly," Lena said with a strand of hair still in her mouth.

"You know, you've just dyed that. You shouldn't chew on it," Tom pointed out.

"Yeah, but what are you going to do about it," Lena muttered.

"I'll tell you exactly. I can finally start calling you Barbie Girl, since you now have long blonde hair," Tom laughed. The rest of the band laughed with him.

"Hey, I never thought of that," Lena said angrily. She watched the others laugh at her, and she growled. "Knock it off! I only got it done cos my actress has just got it dyed blonde too," she pouted.

"Yeah, too bad Aqua split up before then. She could of sang Barbie Girl, and at least the blonde bimbo girl bit would of worked for a change," Tom said, and he burst out laughing again.

"Ok, whatever. I was just getting sick of my mum complaining about the unnatural hair colours I kept dyeing, so I dyed it a more natural colour. She wanted it auburn, like hers. Yeah, like that would ever happen," Lena said.

Everyone groaned, and they sat in silence for a few minutes.

"Holy crap!" Jessie yelled, breaking the silence. Everyone at the table jumped a mile, and they stared at her.

"What?" Tom asked.

"I felt something really strange," Jessie replied. Nearly the entire table sighed.

"That's it?" Triah asked.

"What do you mean by that's it?" Jessie snapepd, glaring at Triah. She cowered at the glare.

"What did it feel like?" Tom asked.

"It felt like something was moving inside of me, and whatever it was must of hit me in the stomach or something," Jessie replied.

Tom laughed slightly. "I've never heard anyone describe it like that."

Everyone looked at him.

"Nothing to worry about, B'Elanna had it with Bryan and Duncan. The baby's probably just kicking," Tom said.

"Is that a good thing?" James asked.

"Yeah, it's pretty normal," Tom replied.

"I think I'll go to Sickbay anyway, just in case," Jessie muttered and she stood up. She quickly left through the nearest door. James followed her, and so did Tom.

"You know that pregnancy is going to be a problem in a few months," Triah said.

"In what way?" Lena asked, without taking her eyes off the strand of hair she was chewing.

"Use your brain, Lena. She won't be able to perform when she's six months along, will she?" Triah replied.

"Oh right, I knew that," Lena muttered. She stood up, still with a strand of hair in her mouth. "I'll see you guys later." She walked out through the other door.

Meanwhile:
James and Tom managed to catch up with Jessie, and they got a little ahead of her.

"You don't need to go to Sickbay, Jessie. There's nothing wrong," Tom said.

"Of course you'd say that," Jessie said.

"What? What do you mean by that?" Tom asked.

"Remember in the last episode, you screamed when you heard the news. You must know that something is wrong and you don't want me to find out," Jessie replied.

"Geez, can't you take a joke. Believe me, the kid is fine," Tom said.

Jessie groaned, and she held her hand out. "Fine, if you think this is no big deal, why don't you feel for yourself."

Tom looked nervously at James. He gave him a similar look himself. "Oh come on, you should be the last person to be nervous because of this," Tom said in annoyance. James just shrugged. Tom rolled his eyes. "Fine, but I'm telling you, it's nothing."

Jessie rolled her eyes too, and she grabbed Tom's hand. She guided his hand to her stomach. Tom blushed slightly in embarrassment. He managed to pull his hand away. "I told you, it's nothing. I was right."

Jessie shook her head, and she continued down the corridor. James and Tom walked faster to catch back up with her.

Jessie stopped suddenly, and she turned around to face the two guys. "Would you two stop following me, I'm only going to Sickbay."

"There's no point," Tom said.

"Actually Jess, I agree with him," James said.

"You're not taking his word for it, are you?" Jessie asked, and she turned back around.

Tom glanced at James, and he nodded his head. "Don't believe me, check for yourself," Tom said.

Jessie overheard, and she turned around. "Good idea." She held her hand out again. James took it, and she guided his hand to her stomach. After a few seconds, James jumped a little.

"That's definitely familiar," James said.

Tom laughed, and he shook his head. "And you seem to know what a kick feels like, how?"

Jessie and James looked at each other, and they both visibly cringed. "Damn," they both said.

Tom shook his head again. "You only had Duncan a month, he was far too young to kick, unless you've been.."

"Ok, ok, it's true," Jessie muttered.

Tom's eyes widened, and he stared at her in shock. "I was only joking around with you? When did this pregnancy happen?"

"Remember the ceremony thing almost six years ago," James said.

"Yeah, but I don't remember anything... oh my god!" Tom stuttered.

"Oh great, here come the insults," Jessie muttered.

"No, no, no, I'm not going to skit you for this," Tom said.

"Are you feeling ok?" James asked.

"Cheeky b****rd. I don't know why, but skitting you two doesn't seem fun anymore," Tom replied.

Jessie and James looked at each other nervously. Tom grew a nervous look on his face as well.

"Well erm, I'd better be off," Tom muttered, and he walked away as quickly as he could.

"Ok, that was scary," Jessie said.

Meanwhile:
Lena finally got sick of chewing her hair, and she pushed the strand back where it was supposed to be. She turned the corner, and she bumped straight into someone.

"Ashley? Look where you're going," she angrily snapped.

"Why don't you look where you're going," Ashley muttered. He looked at Lena, and he blushed for some reason.

Lena narrowed her eyes, and she slapped Ashley across the face. "Stop staring at me!"

"I wasn't! I was looking behind you," Ashley protested.

Lena rolled her eyes. "Fine, I'll let you off this time."

Ashley rubbed his face. "Well erm, I.. have you seen Tani today at all?"

"Yeah I have actually, I'm sorta in a huff with her cos she insulted my hair colour," Lena replied.

"I know this is a silly question, but has she gotten over that Jimmy, or whatever his name is?" Ashley asked.

"It's James, and no she hasn't. Why do you ask?" Lena replied.

"That's good, cos I got an idea that won't fail," Ashley said.

"I'm listening," Lena said.

"Ooh a plan, let me hear it," Steve said as he came up behind his brother.

"Well erm, Lena mentioned once that Janeway suggested that Tani should get a boyfriend or something. You know, to take her mind off James. I think we should do some matchmaking," Ashley said.

Steve raised his eyebrow at his brother. "Nice plan," he said.

"Yeah, but I'm no good at matchmaking. You two should do it, let me know how it goes," Lena said, and she walked past the two brothers. Steve sniggered as he looked at his brother. He was watching Lena until she disappeared around the corner.

Ashley looked at his brother in annoyance. "What?"

"She chose the wrong hair colour, didn't she Ash? Blonde's always been your greatest weakness," Steve replied.

"I told you to stop calling me Ash. Anyway, I don't know what you're talking about," Ashley muttered.

Steve grinned like a Cheshire cat. "You like her, don't you."

"No, I don't!" Ashley yelled at his older brother.

"Yes you do, you should nickname yourself Ken," Steve said.

"What the hell for?" Ashley asked.

"You know, Barbie and Ken," Steve replied, and he started laughing.

"She's no Barbie. Her actress just sang a Barbie song, that's all," Ashley said.

"See, you're sticking up for her," Steve said.

"No I'm not!" Ashley yelled.

Steve laughed. "Ashley loves Lena, Ashley loves Lena," he chanted.

Ashley growled and he stormed off leaving his brother on his own.

The Bridge:
The original Bridge crew were sitting or standing at their stations. Well, all except Tom. He was standing next to Harry's station.

"That's hard to believe. I'll ask them later," Harry muttered.

"I've been skitting them for nearly eight years, things like that grows boring after a while," Tom said.

"Yeah, but after learning something like that I would of thought you'd have something to say," Harry said.

"So what, I had a suspicion back then anyway, so I tried to sound more shocked than I was," Tom said.

"Yeah, that's nice Tom," Harry said.

"I don't know what happened Harry. I felt like I was going to insult them about the whole baby kicking thing, but that idea just seemed pointless after I felt the kick for myself. It wasn't worth insulting I guess," Tom said.

Harry stared at him with a shocked expression on his face. He turned back to his station.

"What was that look for?" Tom asked.

"Nothing," Harry muttered in response.

Claire and Emma stepped out of the turbolift and they headed over to the Science station. Evil C followed them out. He went over to the Engineering station.

"Well Harry, since I'm going off insulting Jessie and James, I'll go for someone fresh," Tom said with a mischievous look on his face.

"No, Tom. Chain-saw maniacs shouldn't be messed with," Harry said.

Tom pouted. "What about Claire then?"

"Still at risk, her fan could do the chain-saw thing then too," Harry replied.

"Crap, I think I'll take the risk," Tom said. Harry shook his head and he tried to ignore Tom.

Tom looked at Evil C, then at Emma and Claire, like if he was deciding. He then went over to Evil C. "Hey, where did you come from?"

"What?" Evil C said questioningly.

"You disappeared for a couple of episodes, where did you go?" Tom asked.

"I dunno, quite a lot of characters disappeared for a few episodes as well," Evil C replied.

"The writers, they're useless aren't they?" Tom asked.

Marill and Raichu, who were writing this scene, appeared.

"Who asked for your opinion, London?" Raichu asked angrily.

"Paris," Tom muttered.

"I know, dunce head," Raichu groaned.

"For calling us useless, lets do those small scenes that Vulpix suggested," Marill said.

"Yeah, good idea," Raichu said. They both laughed evilly, and they disappeared.

"Uhoh, what have they got planned for me," Tom muttered.

Everyone shrugged.

Harry headed over to the Science station, where Claire and Emma were. He didn't notice that Evil C was watching them.

"Hi Emma," Harry said.

"Oh, hi Harry," Emma said.

"Erm, I was just wondering.. erm well.." Harry stuttered.

In: "Torres to Kim, I need your help in Engineering."

"Er, on my way," Harry said. He cursed under his breath, and he headed for the turbolift.

"My, he has it bad," Claire muttered.

"What?" Emma said questioningly.

Claire groaned, "nothing."

Engineering:
Harry took the lift up to the second level. He walked over to B'Elanna.

"Hi, what do you need help with?" Harry asked.

"I just wanted to talk to you," B'Elanna replied.

"Oh, what about?" Harry asked.

B'Elanna placed her hand on the banister. "I need to tell Tom something, but for some reason I don't have the nerve."

"That's odd. What do you want to tell him?" Harry asked.

"I haven't seen Doctor Jones yet, but I think I might be expecting our second child," B'Elanna replied.

"So why can't you tell him?" Harry asked.

"I don't know, maybe it's because I don't know for certain. I don't want to get his hopes up. Maybe I should see Ryan as soon as possible," B'Elanna replied.

"Yeah, that may be a good idea," Harry said. The two of them heard the lift coming back up.

"Hi Emma," B'Elanna said. Harry turned around, and he saw Emma coming up to the two of them.

"Hey," Emma said cheerfully.

"What's up?" B'Elanna asked.

"Well Harry was going to talk to me about something on the Bridge, so I figured.." Emma replied.

"Oh sorry, I shouldn't of interrupted. See you two later," B'Elanna said, and she headed to another console.

"Well?" Emma said questioningly.

"Well, erm I was just wondering if you'd, er, like to go to the Holodeck tonight," Harry said, he blushed crimson red.

Emma grinned. "Yeah ok, sounds fun."

For a reason they couldn't figure out, the two of them were getting closer and closer to each other. They were just an inch away when they felt something come up between them. They backed off when they saw what it was.

"Wobbuffffffeeeeeet!" Wobbuffet yelled.

Emma and Harry looked down at it, it then waddled off. They both looked back up at each other. "Eeew!" they both moaned. Both of them got away from each other as quickly as possible. What they didn't realise was that B'Elanna had witnessed the whole thing.

The Bridge:
Kathryn and Chakotay went into the Ready Room, for unknown reasons. Tuvok was working at his station, as usual. Harry was blushing like crazy at his station. Emma kept looking at him, from the Science station, everytime she did so she shuddered. Tom was at the helm, deep in thought. Evil C and Claire were actually talking to each other.

Lena, James and Jessie came onto the Bridge. Tom looked and he quickly turned back to his station.

"Yeah, that's what I heard off B'Elanna," Lena was saying.

"God, it must be true. She doesn't make up stuff like that," Jessie said.

The three went over to the Engineering station.

"What the hell!" Evil C yelled. Everyone stared at him oddly. "What is this thing?" Everyone noticed Wobbuffet was watching him and Claire, like if it was waiting for something.

"That's Wobbuffet," Claire replied.

"Wobba," Wobbuffet said and it did a salute.

"Er ok," Evil C muttered. He and Claire got back to their conversation. Wobbuffet watched with interest, but it quickly lost interest and it waddled towards the Ready Room.

"That thing is strange," James said.

"Yeah, a little too strange," Lena said.

The Ready Room:
Ok, I'll set the scene for you. Kathryn and Chakotay were giving the J/Cers something to be happy about. Yep, they were erm, cough, making out. Damn this Cherry Coke.

Wobbuffet had somehow got into the Ready Room without anyone seeing inside when the door opened. It did a salute and it yelled at the top of it's voice. "Wobbuffeeet!"

Kathryn and Chakotay jumped a mile, and they nearly crapped themselves. They looked at Wobbuffet who was watching them.

"What the... what are you doing in here?" Chakotay asked angrily.

"And what were we doing?" Kathryn asked in disgust.

"Wobba!" Wobbuffet yelled.

"That's it, I'm scarred for this episode," Kathryn muttered.

"I thought we were seeing each other," Chakotay moaned.

"We are, but that making out line the writers wrote made it seem more er, disgusting than it already was," Kathryn said.

"Oh, right... what the hell are you still doing here!" Chakotay yelled at Wobbuffet.

Wobbuffet waddled out of the room. Kathryn and Chakotay exchanged odd glances.

Back on the Bridge;
"Commander, I'm detecting something odd," Tom said. He looked around and he saw Wobbuffet watching him. He tried to ignore it.

"I'm detecting it too, it's an annoying Pokémon," Claire said.

"Wobba?" Wobbuffet said.

"No, it's not that," Tom said.

"I'm getting it too.... uhoh," Harry muttered.

"What is it, Lieutenant?" Tuvok asked.

"It's a Borg transwarp conduit... and it isn't a Borg ship coming towards us," Harry replied.

"Can you tell who's using the transwarp conduit, Lieutenant?" Tuvok asked.

Harry worked at his station.

"Commander," Tom said. Everyone looked up at the viewscreen. They saw a conduit opening, and a pyramid shaped ship flying out of it.

"Red Alert," Tuvok commanded. The lights died down, the siren started, and the red lights started flashing.

"That's strange, why would they use a Borg transwarp conduit?" Tom muttered.

Kathryn and Chakotay stepped out of the Ready Room, ignoring the odd glance off Wobbuffet. They sat down in their chairs.

"Report," Kathryn commanded.

"A Tolg ship has just come out of a transwarp conduit, Captain," Tuvok replied.

"We're being hailed," Harry said.

"On screen," Chakotay said.

The viewscreen activated, showing the interior of the Tolg ship. "We are the Tolg. You will be zombified, resistance is useless." The viewscreen switched off.

"Well that was original," Tom muttered.

"They're charging weapons," Tuvok said.

"Full power to shields, ready weapons," Kathryn commanded.

"Aye," Tuvok responded.

The ship shook as the Tolg fired their first shot at the ship.

"Fire back with all we got," Chakotay ordered.

"Yes sir," Tuvok replied.

"Captain, I have an idea," Tom said.

"Lets hear it," Kathryn said as the ship shook.

"The conduit the Tolg arrived in, it's still open. We can go through it to escape," Tom said.

"That Tolg ship will just follow us, Tom. Besides we don't know where it leads," Chakotay pointed out.

The Engineering console exploded. James, Jessie and Lena got hit by the blast, and they were thrown backwards. Tom and Chakotay rushed over to them. Tom checked their pulse's. He looked up at Chakotay.

"James and Jessie will live, but..." Tom stuttered. Kathryn stood up as another blast rocked the ship.

"Lena?" Kathryn said quietly.

Tom shook his head, and he looked away.

Chakotay stood up angrily, and he turned to Kathryn. She was physically shaken up.

"Mr Tuvok, prepare the tri-cobalt devices," Kathryn ordered.

"But Captain..." Tuvok said.

Kathryn and Chakotay glared icily at Tuvok.

"Aye Captain," Tuvok replied.

"Beam them to Sickbay," Kathryn ordered.

"Yes ma'am," Harry responded. The ship shook again.

"Tri-cobalt devices ready, Captain," Tuvok said.

Kathryn glared at the ship on the viewscreen. She narrowed her eyes, and she gave the order, "fire!"

Everyone watched as the weapons hit the hull of the Tolg ship, there were a couple of explosions, and the ship was blown in half. A shockwave erupted from the blast.

"Captain, we have to get out of here," Tom said.

"Set a course for the conduit, Lieutenant," Kathryn commanded. Everyone stared at her in shock. "Do it!"

"Aye Captain," Tom said.

Voyager flew into the conduit, but pieces of the Tolg ship followed them in.

"Captain, several pieces of the Tolg ship have been pulled into the conduit," Tuvok said.

"Increase speed," Kathryn ordered. Tom nodded in response.

"Captain, we'll reach the end of the conduit in ten seconds," Tom said.

"Is that all?" Harry commented.

Everyone ignored him. Ten seconds passed quickly, and Voyager flew out of the conduit.

"What's our position?" Kathryn asked.

Harry worked at his station. He stared at it in shock, and he looked up at Kathryn. "I don't believe it Captain, but according to our sensors, we're only one hour away from Pluto," Harry replied.

Everyone stared at him, open mouthed.

"Are you sure, double check?" Chakotay asked.

Harry nodded, and he worked at his station. He shook his head, "the same. We're home."

Kathryn looked saddened. "But at what cost."

Captains Log Supplemental: After an attack from the Tolg, we have arrived back in the Alpha Quadrant. Several pieces of the Tolg ship has been brought with us, and there's still what you call lifeforms on them. We've sent a message to Earth but so far we haven't got a response.

Sickbay:
Kathryn and Chakotay were standing around Lena's biobed. Doctor Jones and Tom were trying to revive her, with no such luck.

Doctor Jones shook his head. "I'm sorry."

Kathryn tried to stop herself from breaking down in tears, but it didn't work. Chakotay tried to comfort her, but nothing seemed to help. They both hugged each other.

"This isn't right, Doc, she is a main character," Tom said.

"You can't expect everyone to stick around in a Season finale, Tom, you know how it goes," Doctor Jones muttered. He sighed, and he went to treat his other patients.

In: "Bridge to Janeway."

Kathryn quickly pulled away from Chakotay, and she wiped the tears from her eyes. She tapped her commbadge. "What is it?"

In: "Captain, the remains of the Tolg ship, something strange is happening to it."

"Strange, what do you mean?" Chakotay asked.

In: "It's hard to explain, you should see for yourself."

"We're on our way," Kathryn muttered. She and Chakotay left Sickbay.

The Bridge:
"This is odd, we're being hailed again," Harry said.

"Put it on screen," Tuvok ordered.

The viewscreen activated, this time it showed a damaged corridor. They saw hurt drones in the background. A female drone, who looked about seventeen appeared on the screen.

"I don't get this," Tom said.

"I am Commander Tuvok of the Federation Starship Voyager," Tuvok said.

"Nine of Twelve, secondary processor of Unimatrix 08, but my real name is Nichola. We require your assistance," the female drone said.

"Why should we give you assistance?" Kathryn asked angrily as she and Chakotay stepped onto the Bridge.

"Our battle severed our link with the Tolg Collective," Nichola replied.

"And?" Kathryn said questioningly.

"We don't want to go back to the Collective, we need someone to help us get back to where we came from," Nichola replied.

The Conference Room:
All of the main cast, excluding Lena, Jessie, James, and Duncan, were at the table. Also there was Evil C and Nichola.

"As you may know, the Tolg Collective was created in the Seventh Dimension before the Boss took over it. In recent years half of the collective has been in other Fifth Dimensions, trying to find one that was free of Seventh Dimension species. We thought that your Dimension was free of them," Nichola said.

"We have been for a couple of months, the only bother we've had is from one Seventh Voyager crewmember, and the Boss," Tom said.

"So the Tolg decided to take half refuge in this dimension. However, less than two months ago our space was invaded by Seventh Dimension Federation ships. When the collective detected your ship in the Delta Quadrant, they thought it was a Seventh Dimension ship," Nichola said.

"That's why you attacked us," Kathryn said.

"That's right. The Tolg are in danger of being wiped out by the Seventh Dimension. Every day there seems to be even more of them," Nichola said.

"But Damien hasn't really been up to that much bother up to now, why start attacking the Tolg?" Harry asked.

"This is the reason why all the disconnected want taking to their home planets as soon as possible. We'll all be killed if we stay on the Tolg ship," Nichola said.

"We're not a taxi service. We're not going around the whole galaxy to take you guys home," Kathryn said.

"It's ok, all the drones on our ship were zombified on Mercury," Nichola said.

"Mercury, no one can live there," Tom said.

"I forgot to mention, the Mercury I speak of is in the Liger's home dimension," Nichola said.

"Yeah, the Mercury there is an M-Class planet," Lilly added.

"Can I ask how?" Kathryn asked.

"Just some bizarre idea of Marill's," Lilly replied.

"That explains everything," Chakotay muttered.

"We know that your Voyager has connections with the Ligers. You can ask them to send us home," Nichola said.

"After what happened do you really think we're going to help you?" Kathryn said.

"We can pay you back," Nichola said.

"How?" Kathryn asked.

"I'm sure our attack caused a few casualties on your ship, we could help treat any wounded. The Tolg have excellent medical expertise," Nichola replied.

Kathryn and Chakotay looked at each other, and they looked back at Nichola.

"Can you revive people?" Kathryn asked.

"The Tolg are based on death and stuff, do you really think they'll be able to help revive Lena," Tom said.

"Actually, the Tolg have a technique to revive the dead, just in case the species they're zombifying is incompatible when the victims can't be zombified when they're already dead," Nichola said.

"Forget I said anything," Tom muttered.

"So will you revive a member of my crew?" Kathryn asked.

"Yes, in exchange for our safe passage home," Nichola replied.

Kathryn and Chakotay glanced at each other and they smiled.

"Captain, this is illogical. They caused the death of Lena, in a way they're not paying us anything," Tuvok said.

"If it helps Lena, I'm all in for it," Kathryn said.

50 minutes later, The Bridge:
"Hey, Tom, what are you going to do when we get home?" Harry asked excitedly.

Tom shrugged. "I haven't really thought about it."

"The first thing I'm going go do is see my parents," Harry said.

"Aaw, are you mummy and daddy's boy?" Claire teased.

"Actually, yes," Harry replied.

"I wasn't expecting that," Claire muttered.

"Hey guys, we'll be seeing Pluto in ten minutes. I think it's time to celebrate," Tom said, and he pulled out a bottle of vodka. He started drinking it, while everyone watched with nervous expressions on their faces.

"I think someone else should take the helm," Harry said slowly. Tom agreed by drunkenly falling onto the floor.

Evil C sat down at the helm, everyone looked at the person nearest to them nervously. "What? I'm probably better than you lot," Evil C said.

"Oh well, we're just going to Earth, nothing much will happen anyway," Harry said.

"Yeah, right on Harry! I think I'll go to Sickbay," Tom said in a slurry voice, he headed into the turbolift.

"That guy ain't right," Claire muttered.

Sickbay:
Doctor Jones was with Nichola, treating Lena. Lee was talking to Jessie and James.

"You guys were lucky, Lena got it right in the face," Lee said.

"That's nice, will she be ok?" James asked.

"I don't know, that Tolg girl was saying nothing but technobabble so I don't know what she's doing," Lee replied.

"I think I'll stay here," James said.

"Great, that means I have to be the one to pick up Duncan from Danny's," Jessie muttered.

"I'm not staying because of that," James said.

"Yeah, whatever you say," Jessie said, and she walked out.

She was only a metre away from Sickbay when she bumped into a drunken Tom.

"Hey Jessie," Tom said in a slurry voice.

"Er, hey Tom," Jessie said nervously.

"You know we're not far from home, wanna celebrate?" Tom asked.

"Erm, not now. Lena's not back yet," Jessie muttered in response.

"Oh yeah, Lena. How's that going?" Tom asked, and he nearly collapsed again.

"To be honest, I don't know," Jessie replied.

"Aaaw, you're worried about her aren't ya?" Tom asked and he developed a stupid drunken grin on his face.

"Erm, I guess so," Jessie muttered.

"Want a hug?" Tom asked and he stretched his arms out.

"No, not really," Jessie replied, and she started backing off.

"Ok, no hug? Are you sure?" Tom asked, and he pouted.

"Very sure," Jessie replied, and she backed into the wall by accident.

A drunken Tom stepped closer to Jessie, so there was no escape for her. It looked like he was going to kiss her when something came up in between them

"Wobba!" Wobbuffet yelled.

"Stupid blob!" A drunken Tom yelled.

"Tom Paris!" a familiar voice yelled from down the corridor.

"Tom!" another familiar voice yelled.

Tom looked around, he saw B'Elanna storming up to him, and James glaring at him from the doorway.

"Crap, I think I'll go into hiding," Tom muttered.

Jessie patted Wobbuffet on the head. "Thanks," she said. It suddenly grabbed a hold of her in a tight hug. James walked over to her.

"Are you ok?" he asked.

"I don't know," Jessie replied.

B'Elanna finally got to the others. She slapped Tom in the face, hard. "What do you think you're doing with her! Answer me!" she yelled.

Tom looked drunkenly scared. "I'm sorry B'Elanna," he muttered.

"Sorry? That's not what I was expecting. I want you to answer my question, right this instant!" B'Elanna screamed.

"Er.. it might of had something to do with the vodka I had," Tom muttered.

"That's no excuse! I thought you loved me, obviously I was wrong!" B'Elanna yelled, and she stormed off. Tom tried to follow her.

"B'Elanna, wait!" he yelled. B'Elanna didn't answer him.

"Ok, if you're not going to tell her, are you going to tell us?" James asked.

"Wobbuffeeet!" Wobbuffet yelled angrily.

"I told you, it must of been the vodka," Tom replied.

"Is this why you were being nice to us earlier?" James asked.

"What are you talking about?" Tom asked.

"You know what I'm talking about, you were nice to her eight years ago when you had that first crush on Jessie," James replied.

"I don't think so, somehow. I love B'Elanna," Tom said.

"You have a funny way of showing it," Jessie said.

"Oh, go and get f***d," Tom said. He turned around to storm off, but somebody grabbed his arm and forced him to turn around.

"Don't you think you're forgetting something," James said.

"Oh, what?" Tom asked. As usual, he was knocked unconscious. James, Jessie and Wobbuffet went back into Sickbay.

The Bridge:
"Ok, lets put Pluto on screen," Harry said excitedly. Everyone groaned in response. The viewscreen was activated to show the freezing planet known as Pluto.

The ship shook violently, and everyone had to grab onto their stations to avoid falling over. The Red Alert siren went off, and the red lights started flashing.

"What was that?" Claire asked.

"Weapons fire.. Federation weapons fire," Harry muttered in response.

"Locate the source and put it on screen," Tuvok commanded.

Harry nodded, and he worked at his console. The viewscreen changed to show a very familiar looking ship.

"According to the sensors, it's registry is NCC-1701-E. It's the Enterprise," Harry said.

"That weapons fire had to be an accident," Claire commented.

"I don't think so," Evil C muttered. Everyone looked at the viewscreen again. The Enterprise was now firing four blue torpedoes. The ship shook violently again, and the Engineering console blew up.. again.

"That thing's not having a good day," Claire muttered.

"They're hailing," Harry said.

"On screen," Tuvok commanded.

The viewscreen changed to show the Enterprise bridge, but everyone was shocked when they saw who was on it.

"Hi, remember me?" Phoebe said evilly. She started laughing, and the rest of the crew laughed with her. Their Chakotay stopped.

"I don't get it," he said. Phoebe smacked him on the head.

"How's this possible, you lot were killed?" Harry asked.

"The originals were. We're all from lots of different Voyagers, but we were given the original's memories and personalities," Phoebe replied.

"That's just great," Harry muttered.

"How did you get a hold of that vessel?" Tuvok asked.

"That's not what you should be worried about at the moment. All you should know about this vessel is.. that's it going to kick your sorry butts. Good day," Phoebe replied. The viewscreen switched back to show the ship.

The Enterprise continued firing torpedoes.

"Returning fire," Tuvok said.

Voyager fired several torpedoes at the Enterprise, the shields fluctuated, and the torpedoes bounced back towards Voyager. All of the torpedoes hit the shields, and the shields disappeared.

"What happened?" Evil C asked loudly as smoke filled the Bridge.

"I don't know, their shields seemed to reflect our torpedoes!" Harry yelled over the noise.

Kathryn and Chakotay rushed onto the Bridge.

"What is going on?" Kathryn asked loudly.

"We're being attacked by the Enterprise, Captain. Seventh Voyager crewmembers have taken over it," Tuvok replied.

The ship shook violently, and the Tactical station exploded. Tuvok fell to the ground with severe burn wounds on his face and neck. Kathryn knelt down and checked his pulse. She started shaking, and she stood back up.

"Beam him to Sickbay, now!" she yelled. Harry swallowed hard and did what he was told.

"Captain, the Tolg. The Enterprise has just destroyed them," Claire said.

"Who bloody cares about them, Claire. Lets just concentrate on saving ourselves," Kathryn said angrily.

"If we keep going like this, we'll be destroyed," Harry said as another hit destroyed half of the helm. Evil C didn't get hit by the explosion.

"Good thing I have an idea," Chakotay said as he made his way down to the helm. "Erm, whatever your name is.. take us down to Pluto," Chakotay said.

Everyone stared at Chakotay like he was crazy. "Why on earth would we want to land there?" Kathryn asked angrily.

"We could make it look like we're crash landing on the planet. They may think we've been destroyed, and leave us alone," Chakotay replied.

"With this much damage, we might not have to pretend," Harry pointed out.

"Do it," Kathryn commanded.

"Captain, I'm detecting transporter activity on all decks!" Harry yelled out. Just as he said that Chakotay dematerialised.

In: "Sickbay to Janeway. Captain, Ensign Stuart and Crewman Rex have just disappeared."

Kathryn turned to Harry. "Harry, who else has gone?"

Harry worked at his station. "Captain, all of the Marquis crew are gone. Also Duncan, Kiara and Naomi have been taken too."

"What would they want with the Marquis crewmembers?" Kathryn asked herself.

"Ten seconds till we land," Evil C said to get everyone's attention.

Kathryn tapped her commbadge. "Janeway to all hands, we will be landing soon. But because of all the damage we've sustained, it may be a rough landing."

"You forgot to mention who the pilot was," Harry said. Evil C was about to say something but the ship rocked violently as it landed on the ice.

"If it was Chakotay, I would of warned the crew," Kathryn muttered as she held onto the railing.

"Wow, I didn't know the ship could ice skate!" Claire yelled.

Evil C briefly glanced at her. "This thing doesn't have any breaks, damn this ice."

Kathryn rushed back over to the helm, and she tapped in some commands. The ship finally stopped. "Remember, this ship has landing struts, and that's where the brake button is," she said.

"Fair enough," Evil C muttered. Kathryn walked away, but she didn't notice Evil C pulling a horrible face at her.

"Captain, the Enterprise has gone," Harry said.

"But they have the Marquis crewmembers," Claire said.

"I already know that!" Kathryn yelled. Claire cowered.

"We can't stay here for long, the ship could turn into an ice cube and we'll never get it off the ground," Harry said.

"Begin repairs," Kathryn ordered.

"Aye Captain," Harry said.

The Enterprise, one of the Brigs:
The Brig was rather large, it was large enough to fit the entire Marquis crew in.

Phoebe and Seventh Chakotay walked in, and they stood in front of the forcefield.

"Well well, our plan worked after all," Phoebe smirked.

"Makes a change, you usually screw them up," Seventh Chakotay said. Phoebe smacked him.

"Why have you.." Chakotay asked.

"That doesn't matter, you will be taken to Mercury in the Liger's dimension as prisoners of the Seventh Dimension," Phoebe replied.

"The planet's actually quite nice, hot but nice. Too bad night time has to come," Seventh Chakotay said.

"What do you mean?" B'Elanna asked.

"Well the device that hides Mercury from people like us is malfunctioning. It keeps blocking out the sun during the day, it gets rather cold so I'm told," Chakotay replied.

"I don't get it," Lisa said.

"You will," Phoebe said. She and Seventh Chakotay left the room laughing evilly.

Voyager, the Bridge:
Doctor Jones, Nichola, and Lena came out of the turbolift. Kathryn came up to them.

"Lena, I'm glad to see you're ok," Kathryn said.

Lena just smiled at her. Kathryn turned to Nichola.

"What about Tuvok, can you revive him too?" Kathryn asked.

"No, Captain," Nichola replied.

"Why not?" Kathryn asked angrily.

"I only had enough Tolg nanoprobes to revive Lena, I need another drone to revive him, but somebody told me that the Tolg ship has been totally destroyed," Nichola replied.

Kathryn covered her face with her left hand. "This is not happening. Seventh Voyager, or Enterprise, is going to pay."

"Captain!" Harry yelled to get everyone's attention. Everyone looked his way. "Four Liger ships have just came out of the conduit. Three are the Lillyia ships."

"Try and send out a distress call to them, they may pick it up," Kathryn commanded.

Harry nodded and he worked at his station furiously. He smiled. "They must of detected us, they jumped to high warp to get here."

Lena went over to what was left of Tactical, and she pushed away some of the rubble. "That was quick," she said.

"Their ships can go at warp 9.9, Lena," Kathryn said.

"They're hailing," Harry said.

"Good, open a channel," Kathryn said.

The viewscreen changed to show the Lillyia Z5's Bridge. Scot, James 2, and Carly were there.

"It's good to see you again," Kathryn said.

"Yeah, but I wasn't expecting to meet again like this. The Z6 and Z7 will pull your ship back into orbit," Scot said.

"Z7?" Kathryn said questioningly.

"Our new addition to the fleet, we'll speak to you once you're up here," Scot said. The viewscreen switched itself off.

"That explains the fourth ship," Harry muttered.

Ten minutes later, the Conference Room:
All that was left of the main cast, and the Lillyia crew were at the table.

"It happened about a month and a half ago, Federation ships kept coming into our dimension and attacking us. It didn't take us long to realise that it was the Seventh Dimension's dirty work," Scot was saying.

"They have this new weapon that allows them to seriously damage any ship they're up against, and they replace the crew. Rumour has it that the original crew get deposited on our Mercury," James 2 said.

"Your Mercury, surely you would know if prisoners are being sent there," a sober Tom said.

"Mercury was taken over by the Seventh Dimension only days after the attacks began, the planet is heavily guarded," Scot said.

"What would they want with our Marquis crewmembers, and three of our children?" Kathryn asked.

"They probably think Marquis crewmembers would be useful for battle, they might brainwash them. The kids will probably be used as slaves," Scot replied.

"We've got to rescue them," Lena said.

"But how? With that weapon of theirs we have no way of getting to Mercury," James 2 said.

"We know what their weapon is, all we need to do is find it's weakness," Kathryn said.

"Our Fleet hasn't really come up against the weapon, what does it do?" Scot asked.

"Basically if a ship fires weapons at it, they just bounce back at them, twice the power," Harry said as he read from a PADD.

"If their own shields a weapon, there could be a way to defeat them," Scot said.

Sickbay:
Lena and Steve were for some odd reason in Sickbay, talking.

"What were we talking about again?" Lena asked.

"Tani, and that matchmaking thing," Steve replied.

"Oh yeah," Lena muttered.

"I don't see why we have to do it," Steve said.

"Well I think James is way out of her reaches now, the earlier she goes off him the better," Lena said.

"Yeah, I guess you're right," Steve muttered.

"So, who do you think we should try to hook her up with then?" Lena asked.

"I don't know, I don't really care," Steve replied.

"Er, I thought you were interested in this matchmaking thing," Lena said.

"I am, but.." Steve muttered.

Lena grinned. "Oh I get it, this all makes sense now."

"What?" Steve said questioningly.

"All the times you tried to speak to Tani, you always seemed shy around her. Now I get why," Lena said.

"I don't know what you're talking about," Steve said.

"You like her, don't you," Lena teased.

"No, I don't!" Steve snapped.

"Oh come on Steve, this is perfect. Why don't you talk to her," Lena said.

"Because I can't," Steve muttered.

"Cos you like her," Lena teased.

"No I don't!" Steve snapped again.

"Oh come on, this will help Tani as well," Lena moaned.

"How's that?" Steve asked. He looked at Lena, she had a mischievous look in her eyes. "Oh no, you're not going to do that matchmaking crap with me and Tani are you?"

"Of course not. I told you, I'm crap at matchmaking," Lena replied.

"I don't trust you," Steve said.

"Good, not many people do," Lena said. She stood up and she headed towards the door. "See you later, Stevee." She then walked out.

Meanwhile, Deck Three:
Evil C was wandering around the corner, looking for something to cure his boredom. He heard somebody walking behind him, and he quickly glanced to see who it was. It was Claire.

"Hey, wait for me!" Claire yelled, and she walked faster to catch up with him.

"Ok, what have I done wrong?" Evil C asked.

Claire laughed. "Nothing, I just wanted to talk."

"How come, early Season Two you were trying to avoid me," Evil C said.

"Yeah well, that was a long time ago. Can you stop walking please?" Claire asked. They both stopped near the corner. "I want to ask you a question, actually."

"Yeah, what?" Evil C asked.

"Well first, can I call you by your proper name instead of Evil C?" Claire asked.

"Yeah, ok," Evil C replied.

"Ok, Clive, I was wondering, when all this crap is over with, do you want to go somewhere on Earth?" Claire asked.

Evil C couldn't believe what he was hearing, he tried pinching his arm. Claire noticed and she raised her eyebrow.

"Er, what was that for?" Claire asked.

"Is this a dream?" Evil C asked.

Claire looked around. "No, I don't think so."

"That's strange," Evil C muttered.

"Well, do you want to or not?" Claire asked.

"Yeah, I'd love to," Evil C replied.

Claire grinned, "great."

Suddenly Wobbuffet appeared in between the two like he was trying to separate them. They both looked oddly at the blob.

"What is this thing on?" Claire asked.

"Wobba!" Wobbuffet yelled.

"I think it just said heroine," Evil C replied.

Wobbuffet looked angrily at him. "Wobbuffet!" it yelled.

"Lets go," Claire said. She and Evil C walked away, fast, to get away from the blob. It waddled after them.

Meanwhile, Marill's house:
It's now the final day of writing.

Firera and Charizard are not around, and the remaining writers are seriously considering taking their names off the episode.

Raichu was sitting on the bed, Vulpix was lying on it drinking Cherry Coke, and Marill was on the computer this time.

"You know, that Wobbuffet is getting annoying. It keeps interrupting everything," Vulpix said.

"I know, some people don't like a lot of romantic slop you know," Raichu said.

"So?" Vulpix said questioningly.

"Well, there's too many pairings in this one. I thought it would be funny to add a little humour to it," Raichu said.

"Thanks, Raichu. You've just given me an idea for the second part. I'd better write it down," Marill said. She picked one of her many notepads and she began writing. Vulpix and Raichu watched, with confused expressions on their faces.

"What did I say?" Raichu asked. Vulpix shrugged.

Voyager, the Conference Room:
Everyone that was in the room earlier, are back in. Also there are Evil C, Ashley, Steve, Carly, and this really evil looking guy.

"Ok, does everyone understand the plan?" Kathryn asked. Everyone nodded.

"Ok, there are four Lillyia ships. It would be a lot better to have each one with a good commander," Scot said.

"I may as well take temporary command of the Z5 again," Lilly said. Scot looked her way, she just winked at him.

"I think I'll stay as Commander on the Z5," Scot said.

"I wonder why," James 2 sniggered which was followed by a smack from Lilly. He pouted and he rubbed his head.

"I was going to allow you command of the Z6, but if you're going to be like that then.." Lilly said.

"I'll be good, Lil. I promise," James 2 said with a pet lip still on. Lilly shook her head and she smiled.

"Ok, I'll let you off this once," Lilly said.

"Commander Haxon," Scot said. The evil looking guy turned to attention. "You're in command of the Z4."

"Yes sir," Haxon said.

"Who should be in command of the Z7?" Lilly asked.

Lena put her hand up. "Ooh, ooh, pick me!"

"You're not a Ligerfleet officer," Lilly said.

"But she's a good commander, you've let her in charge before, why not now," Kathryn said.

"A good commander? When she's in command of Voyager it either nearly blows up or crashes," Harry said.

"Shut up you!" Lena yelled.

"Come to think of it, we need more exploding and/or crashing action. Lena, you're hired," Lilly said.

"Get in!" Lena yelled. Everyone looked nervous.

"Where did she learn that term, it sounds very Geordie," Kathryn asked.

"There aren't many Geordie's on this ship, so it's not really that hard to figure it out," Harry replied.

"Doesn't matter. Everyone, get to your stations. It's time to end this war once and for all," Kathryn said.

Captains Log Supplemental: Voyager has been repaired and equipped with some new Liger weapons. Voyager and the Lillyia Fleet are now ready for battle

The Bridge:
Kathryn was sitting on her chair, as usual. Harry was at opps. Tom was at the helm. Emma was at Tactical. Faye was at the Engineering station. Finally, Evil C was at the Science station. The red alert lights were flashing again.

"Weapons and shields status," Kathryn commanded.

"They're 100%," Emma said.

"Right, Mr Paris.." Kathryn said.

"Ohno, something else is coming out of the transwarp conduit," Harry said.

"What is it this time?" Kathryn asked.

On the viewscreen, another Voyager came out of the transwarp conduit.

Kathryn hid her face with her hand again. "If this is the Voyager I think it is, we're doomed."

"We're being hailed," Harry said.

Kathryn rolled her eyes. "On screen."

Everyone groaned when the viewscreen showed Voyager's Bridge, with the Pokémon characters.

"I'm Captain Ash.."

"Yeah, we know!" Emma yelled.

"Hey, you didn't let me finish," Ash pouted, and he started crying. Pikachu shook it's head.

"What do you want this time?" Kathryn asked.

"We heard there was a party, so we've come to party," Brock replied.

"Er, ok.. you can join us at our 'party'," Kathryn said. Everyone looked at her with shocked and mortified expressions on their faces.

"Yeaaaaahh! Party!" Ash yelled.

The viewscreen went off.

Everyone was still looking at Kathryn. "We could use the extra help, besides they might get killed first."

Everyone agreed, and they stopped staring at Kathryn.

Meanwhile, the Lillyia Z7:
Lena, Tani, Steve, Ashley, and Bryan was the crew of the fancy new bridge. Bryan was holding his nose.

"Eew, it smells like a new car," Bryan muttered.

"It's the leather seats, I guess," Lena shrugged.

"Leather seats? Remind me to steal them after this mission," Ashley said. Tani and Steve rolled their eyes.

"Oh I just remembered something, can you two go to Engineering?" Lena asked Tani & Steve.

"Engineering?" Tani said questioningly.

"Where the hell is that?" Steve asked.

"I don't know, use the wall panels to find out," Lena replied.

"Why do we need to go there?" Tani asked.

"Well, they need some help down there, and you two aren't really doing anything up here," Lena replied.

"Ok, fine," Tani muttered. She and Steve headed for the lift thing. As soon as they were inside, Ashley looked at Lena.

"Sending those two wasn't a good idea," Ashley said.

"Why not?" Lena asked.

"They barely talk to each other," Ashley replied.

"Well hopefully that'll change," Lena said.

"Wait a minute, you're not.." Ashley said. Lena grinned slyly at him. "He's my brother!"

"And?" Lena asked.

"And you don't get it do you?" Ashley replied angrily.

"Nope, cos there's nothing to get. So there," Lena said, and she stuck her tongue out at him.

Ashley pouted. "You should have left the matchmaking to me."

Lena grinned. "Why?" she said in a skit of Duncan's voice.

Ashley folded his arms and continued to pout.

Meanwhile, in the lift:
As usual Tani and Steve weren't talking to each other. Steve decided to end the silence once and for all.

"Have you ever wondered why it's so quiet when there's just the two of us," Steve said. Tani looked at him.

"Erm, yeah I have," Tani said.

"Well I've just figured it out," Steve said.

"Really, tell me," Tani said. Steve finally looked back at her.

"Do you really want to know?" he asked.

"Well, yeah," Tani replied.

"Really wanna know?" Steve asked. Tani was starting to lose her patience and she walked closer to him.

"Yes," she said angrily.

Steve used his right hand to beckon Tani closer. She rolled her eyes and she got closer. "I don't see the point, there's nobody else in here and.." Steve interrupted her by kissing her.

Back on Voyager:
Kathryn pressed a button on the console next to her chair. "Janeway to all hands, we'll be engaging in battle soon. So all hands to battle stations!"

"Shouldn't you have ordered that before?" Tom asked. Kathryn glared at him, and he cowered.

The two Voyagers and the Lillyia Fleet flew past the remains of Venus. As soon as they did so they could see a huge fleet of Federation vessels heading towards them.

"It's time, there's no turning back," Kathryn said in an over dramatic voice.

The Lillyia Z7:
Tani and Steve came back onto the Bridge, looking rather flushed. Lena looked at them with a sly look on her face.

"So, why are you back?" she asked.

"We got, er, lost," Steve replied.

Lena sniggered, but Ashley just pretended to throw up.

"Lost where, you didn't even get out of the turbolift," Lena sniggered.

"Lena! Where did you get that idea?" Tani asked.

"Duh, telepathic," Lena sniggered. Ashley started headbutting his station.

Tani and Steve looked at each other. "Crap!" they both groaned.

"Everyone always forgets that," Lena sniggered.

Ashley couldn't take it anymore. "My best friend and my brother, great. What's next?"

Lena groaned. "I don't see what your problem is."

"You wouldn't understand, would you," Ashley muttered.

"Oh come on Ashley, it was just a one off thing," Tani said.

Steve sulked. Nobody noticed.

"Yeah, and that makes it all better," Ashley said.

"Oh for god's sake, aren't we ever going to get to the battle?" Bryan moaned.

"Yeah, it's just the writers want to get all the character stuff out of the way first. The second part will be a lot better," Lena said.

"Well, that's nice of them," Bryan said sarcastically.

"Yeah, now lets kick some Seventh a*s," Lena said.

Later:
The battle was raging. All of the Lillyia ships were badly damaged, and so was the two Voyagers.

"Shields status," Kathryn commanded.

"10%," Emma replied.

"A few more hits and we'll lose shields!" Harry yelled.

"Tom, we'll have to rely on your piloting skills," Kathryn said.

"Yes ma'am," Tom said.

"Captain, the Z6, it's lost shields!" Harry yelled.

"They're vulnerable, beam the crew to Voyager," Kathryn commanded.

"I'm on it," Harry replied.

Another torpedo hit the shields, and they buckled. The stations at the back of the Bridge exploded, killing innocent crewmembers.

"Captain, the ship's buckling," Harry said.

"Have you got everyone off it yet?" Kathryn asked.

"Locking on to the last few now," Harry replied.

On the viewscreen the Z6 suddenly exploded, creating a shockwave.

Kathryn turned to Harry. "Harry!"

"I've got them, but the last few are seriously injured," Harry said.

"Beam them to Sickbay," Kathryn commanded.

The ship shook violently, and the Tactical station exploded. Emma fell to the ground. Harry rushed over to her, and he checked her pulse. Kathryn stood up so she could see what was happening.

"Harry?" Kathryn said questioningly.

Harry covered his face with both of his hands. "She's dead." Everyone looked at him in shock.

"Not only that, our shields have gone," Tom said.

"We're being hailed by the Z4," Faye said.

Kathryn turned to face the viewscreen. "On screen."

On the viewer, the Bridge of the Z4 was shown. Only Commander Haxon was there, and he was smiling evilly.

"Well, well, I knew someday I'd get revenge," Haxon said.

"What are you talking about?" Kathryn asked angrily.

"Those Liger fools thought I was still Commander Haxon, and they left me in charge of one of their ships. Now that wasn't such a good idea, now was it?" Haxon said and he laughed evilly.

"Who are you?" Kathryn asked.

"I always thought you were a stupid woman. You all should know me as Damien, now surrender Voyager and the rest of the Lillyia Fleet to me.. or I'll destroy you," Haxon said evilly. Dramatic music started, and the camera focused on Kathryn's face. As usual it went too close, and it knocked her unconscious. The screen faded out with the words...

Is this really how we're going to end the season? Why did that stupid camera spoil the dramatic mood? Will anymore main characters die? Will Voyager and the Fleet be able to get away from Damien this time? Will the crew rescue the Marquis crewmembers? How is Mercury an M-Class planet? And why is that Wobbuffet always interfering?
Find out the answers to most of these questions in the next Season of Fifth Voyager!
