“Captains log; Stardate 42001.13;
Voyager is approaching a star system where a highly advanced civilisation has been detected. We are approaching under cloak
Captain Chakotay exited his ready room onto the bridge. “Report,” he said.
“There is no further information on the civilisation, Captain. It is highly possible that they may have detected us, despite our cloak,” the Operations Officer, Lieutenant Commander Annika Hansen said.
“Noted,” the Captain said.
“That is unlikely. We are running passive scans and we are at low warp,” the tactical officer, Lieutenant Commander Tuvok said.
“How close are we to the system?” the Captain asked.
“We are approaching the heliopause now, sir,” the Chief Helm Officer, Lieutenant Tamsin Paris, said.
“Drop out of warp,” the Captain said.

on the top of its screen. Paris then could see the rear hatch of the runabout sized vessel open.

“Excellent. Your Away Team will be down in a few minutes. Chakotay out.
5 minutes later, Paris was waiting outside the rear hatch of the Flyer
when her Away Team arrived. The team consisted of Harry Kim, Tal Celes, Sito Jaxa, Vorik and Icheb.
Kim handed a PADD over to Paris. “These are the parameters of the mission,” he said. Paris read through the mission briefing.
