    TOSCAT: That won't be possible. We cannot interfere with the Caretaker's wishes

    KES: That's right. They don't understand. They have no way of knowing that the Ocampa have been dependent on the Caretaker for so long, we can't even think for ourselves any more. They don't understand we were once a people who had full command of our mind's abilities.

    TOSCAT: The stories of our ancestor's cognitive abilities are apocryphal. At the very least exaggerated.

    TOSCAT: We should not dwell on what's been lost but on all that's been gained.

    KES: We've gained a talent for dependence, for simply taking what we're given. I'm going to help them, Toscat, whether you like it or not, and I think my friends will join me.

    TOSCAT: You defied the Caretaker by going to the surface, Kes. Learn from the experience. Follow the path he has set for us.

    KES: I've learned very well, Toscat. I saw the sunlight. I can't believe that our Caretaker would forbid us to open our eyes and see the sky. Come with me. We'll find your people.

    [Shaft]

    (A metal fire escape type staircase winds around a large shaft that goes up towards the surface. There are some flickering lights. Torres and Kim have torches and shovels. They start up, slowly. After a while -)

    TORRES: Come on. Don't let it beat you, Starfleet. Come on.

    Torres: We're not finished yet. I know a few things ole Sneezy didn't teach in his survival course.
