KIM: Then we could find a way to adjust the core reaction from here.
TORRES: A few well timed graviton pulses from our deflector dish might do it.
TASH: That's generous, but I have nothing to give in return.
JANEWAY: We're not asking for anything in return.
TASH: You could use the catapult after I've made my jump! It should still be functional. A thousand light years won't exactly get you back to Earth.
KIM: But it would cut a few years off our trip!
(AUDIENCE: Shut up, Harry!)
JANEWAY: If you're successful, and if I'm satisfied a jump would be safe for Voyager, then we'll take you up on that offer. Thank you. Let's get started.
JANEWAY: Good morning.
SEVEN: Perhaps not. The alien, Mister Tash is trying to deceive us. His catapult is the same type of technology that was used to trap Voyager in the Delta quadrant five years ago.
JANEWAY: I scanned the catapult myself. Sensors didn't pick up anything unusual. You spent the night in your new alcove.
SEVEN: Processing the same information and cross-referencing it with Voyager's database. When the catapult destabilised yesterday, Astrometric sensors recorded a momentary burst of epsilon radiation.
JANEWAY: Unusual, but not unheard of.
SEVEN: Epsilon radiation is one the by-products of a tetryon reactor. According to your own entries in the database your only encounter with that kind of technology occurred five years ago in the Alpha quadrant. A coherent tetryon beam locked onto Voyager, and you were hit by a massive displacement wave, which pulled you across seventy thousand light years in a matter of minutes. The source of that tetryon beam was the Caretaker's array. Mister Tash claims that his catapult will be able to do something very similar.
JANEWAY: He didn't want us to send over a repair team.
SEVEN: Out of concern for our safety. It's obvious he was trying to hide his tetryon reactor.
JANEWAY: The first time we met a Caretaker we were pulled halfway across the galaxy. The second time we were almost killed. I'm not eager for a third round.
TASH: Is this any way to treat a colleague?
EMH: Not so much as a molecule of Caretaker DNA.
JANEWAY: Thank you, Doctor. There's a tetryon reactor powering your catapult. You didn't want us to find it, did you? Unless you answer my questions, I'll resume course and you can ask somebody else for help.
TASH: I acquired the tetryon reactor at great cost. This territory is full of species who would do anything for such advanced technology, including steal it. I apologize for the deception, but you do understand.
