    Janeway: We still have to find out if it goes anywhere near the Alpha Quadrant. Can you trace it's subspace bearing?

    KIM: I can't get any directional readings at all. The aperture is too small.

    Tuvok: I recommend we launch a microprobe into the wormhole.

    Janeway: Agreed. Do it, Lieutenant.

    (Whoosh sound.)

    KIM: We're receiving telemetry.

    (The viewscreen shows a green tunnel.)

    PARIS: It doesn't look like any wormhole I've ever studied.

    KIM: Microscopic gravitational eddies, extremely constricted spatial dimensions. The pathway's barely wider than the probe itself.

    Janeway: I think what we're seeing is a wormhole in an advanced state of decay. Must be ancient. Probably been collapsing for centuries.

    PARIS: Does that mean we can't send a message through it?

    Kim: No, I can do it. Maybe it'll take longer to get through, but the wormhole's still stable enough to carry a transmission.

    CHAKOTAY: Any idea yet where that message would end up, Ensign?

    Kim: I'll try extrapolating the verteron exit vector. No, I can't get it. There's a strange phase variance in the radiation stream. We'll have to wait until the probe exits.

    Kim: It's mired in a gravitational eddy, and because the wormhole's in a state of collapse, those eddies are incredibly dense. That probe will never break free, Captain, and we'll have no way of finding out where the wormhole ends.

    JANEWAY: Let's give it some time. Maybe it will work itself loose
