    Rollins: Captain, the array is firing some kind of weapon at the surface. It seems to be trying to seal the energy conduits.

    Chakotay: If the array is the Ocampa's sole source of energy, why would the Caretaker seal the conduits?

    Tuvok: He would seal them if he no longer intended to use them, to protect the Ocampa from their enemies. Captain, there is now enough evidence to form a reasonable hypothesis. I believe that the Caretaker is dying.

    Tuvok: First, he increases the energy supply to provide the city with a surplus to last at least 5 years. Then, he seals the conduits. The logical conclusions is that he does not intend to continue his role as Caretaker.

    CHAKOTAY: That doesn't necessarily mean he's dying. He could be leaving.

    Tuvok: Doubtful. Not after a millennium of providing for these people. I believe that the Caretaker owes something to the Ocampa. I believe the "debt that can never be repaid," is very likely a debt to them. In addition, there were his frequent references to "running out of time." I think he knew his death was imminent.

    Paris, Kes and Neelix enter a tunnel. Paris scans with his tricorder.

    Paris: They're in this one. Harry!

    Paris starts going up the stairs. Neelix and Kes follow.

    Paris: Paris to Janeway.

    Paris: They're in one of the tunnels, Captain. I can't see them, but they're up there.

    JANEWAY: Call for transport when you have them, Paris. We'll meet you on the ship. Janeway to Voyager.

    Rollins: (over comm) Standby. Captain, I can't get a lock on you. The weapons fire from the array has irradiated the planets crust. The Transport Sensors can't find the breaches in the security barrier.

    JANEWAY [OC]: The transporters aren't working. You're going to have to find a breach in the security barrier when you get to the top.
