    JANEWAY: Very well, I understand that you must have been skeptical when I told you where we are. I hope you've been able to verify our position.

    Telek [OC]: My analysis of your hailing frequency seems to indicate that it originates in the Delta quadrant, but I am not precluding the possibility that you've been able to create that illusion somehow.

    TELEK [OC]: You say you are a Federation ship. Are you a Starfleet vessel?

    TELEK [OC]: And your mission in the Delta quadrant?

    ETA: Just a reminder for Teacake and crew, Janeway does this entire conversation wearing a pink satin negligee.

    Janeway: Our mission was originally in the Alpha Quadrant. We were pulled against our will to our present location. Now we're trying to get home.

    TELEK [OC]: Aren't you in fact Starfleet spies on a surveillance mission

    Janeway: Captain, I understand your concern. Naturally the Romulan Empire doesn't want Starfleet spying on it's science vessels, but since we're seventy thousand light years from Romulan space and a subspace message to Starfleet would take years, I think you have to admit that we can't be much of a threat to you. You have nothing to fear from us.

    TELEK [OC]: Soothing words, Captain, but they are only words.

    JANEWAY: If we were spies, we wouldn't be asking what I'm going to ask you now. We have no way of communicating with Starfleet, with our friends and families. We're hoping you might be able to relay a message for us. Our crew is not large. Each of them could write a short personal message. You'd be welcome to read them all before passing them on. I think you'd be convinced that they're nothing more than the heartfelt words of some very lonely people.

    TELEK [OC]: Captain, it would ease my apprehension if I could see that you are who you say you are. I have a signal amplifier on board. I've been working to reconfigure the protocols to penetrate the radiation stream of the wormhole. I think it might be possible to establish a visual link between us.

    JANEWAY: I have no objection. When that's done, will you help us?

    TELEK [OC]: I make no promises. Let us proceed one step at a time. Have your officers contact me in order to attempt the visual link. Goodnight.
