TORRES: I don't find this at all amusing, Starfleet.
(B'Elanna tries the door)
KIM: There's no point. It's locked. (She starts pounding on the door) Hey! Hey, hey, hey. What's that going to accomplish?
Torres: What are they doing to us? What are these things growing on us?
KIM: Look, do you want them to sedate you again?
Torres: You're right, Starfleet. It's the Klingon half of me. It's just it's hard to control it sometimes.
KIM: What's your name, Maquis?
Torres: B'Elanna. B'Elanna Torres.
(The door opens.)
OCAMPA DOCTOR: I hope you're feeling better. I know how frightening all this must be for both of you. I've brought some clothes if you'd care to change.
Torres: Why are you holding us here?
OCAMPA DOCTOR: You are not prisoners. In fact, we consider you honoured guests. The Caretaker has sent you to us. As long as you are not violent, you are free to leave your quarters.
KIM: What's wrong with us? What are these things?
OCAMPA DOCTOR: We really don't know. You must be hungry. Would you care to join me on the courtyard for a meal?
(It's an enclosed place with glass ceiling and lots of girders. The whumph of the energy packets from the array can be heard.)
OCAMPA DOCTOR: Our food dispensers are right this way.
KIM: We're underground.
OCAMPA DOCTOR: Our society is subterranean. We've lived here for over five hundred generations.
TORRES: But before that, you lived on the surface?
Ocampan Doctor: Until "The Warming" began.
Kim: The Warming?
(A crowd gathers.)
Ocampa Doctor: When our surface turned into a desert and the Caretaker came to protect us. Our ancient journals tell us he opened a deep chasm in the ground and led our ancestors to this place. Since then he has provided for all our needs. Please forgive them. They know you've come from the Caretaker. None of us has ever seen him. This way, please.
(They jump the queue for a food replicator.)
TORRES: Does the Caretaker provide your meals too?
OCAMPA DOCTOR: In fact, he does. He designed and built this entire city for us after the Warming. The food processors dispense nutritional supplements every four point one intervals. It may not offer the exotic tastes some of our younger people crave these days, but it meets our needs.
