Telek: (on screen) She is... seven months.
JANEWAY: Then you've never seen her
Telek: (over comm) To my sorrow, no. She'll be two years old before I get back.
JANEWAY: You must miss your family very much.
Telek [on viewscreen]: I knew when I accepted this assignment there would be a price to pay. Perhaps I didn't realise how high that price would be.
JANEWAY: Captain. Everyone of us on this ship has left behind friends, family, loved ones. We may not see them again for years, maybe never, so we can all understand how lonely you must be. Surely you must understand our feelings as well. We would be deeply grateful for any efforts you might make to persuade your government to send our messages.
TELEK [on viewscreen]: I cannot guarantee success, but I will try to persuade my superiors to make their decision quickly and positively
JANEWAY: Thank you.
TELEK [on viewscreen]: I will contact you again.
Janeway: Commander, let's assume he's going to be successful. Tell the crew to prepare personal messages and have them ready within the hour.
TORRES: Captain, I have to talk to you.
We skipped one.
Chakotay: With pleasure, Captain.
Torres runs onto the bridge.
Janeway: Go ahead, Torres.
TORRES: No. I mean, in private
TORRES: I think this will work, Captain, but I didn't want to bring it up in front of the crew. It wouldn't be right to get their hopes up in case it doesn't work, although I think it will.
JANEWAY: Slow down, Torres, and tell me what you're talking about.
TORRES: The phase amplitude of the visual link with the Romulan ship is within just a few megahertz of meeting transporter protocols.
Janeway: Are you suggesting...
TORRES: We might be able to piggyback a transporter beam onto the visual link. We could transport the entire crew back to the Alpha quadrant.
JANEWAY: You'll have to reconfigure the matter transmission rate.
Torres: Fairly substantially.
Janeway: And we risk losing whatever we try to beam out.
