Paris: Anything for such a charming host. Are you all right?
ANNORAX: The galley has prepared a selection of unique delicacies. You won't find them anywhere else in the galaxy. Please, join me. Malkothian spirits. An extremely rare vintage, the only bottle known to exist.
Your Captain said that your vessel is trying to reach home. I hadn't realized how far your home was. You're an anomalous component: alone, disconnected, impossible to predict. You have no idea how you've complicated my mission.
PARIS: Glad to hear it.
ANNORAX: When I first encountered your vessel it was badly damaged, barely functioning. What if I told you that in the blink of an eye I could restore Voyager to its former condition. That you and I would never have met. That you might even find yourself closer to the Alpha Quadrant.
CHAKOTAY: By using the weapon on this ship to alter history.
ANNORAX: Yes. I can control the destiny of a single molecule or an entire civilization. How's the wine?
ANNORAX: This bottle is the only component left of the once powerful Malkoth race. Everything else about them: cities, culture, the very species itself never existed because of me. Every dish you see here comes from a civilization that has been erased from time.
Mr. Paris, you're devouring the last remnants of the Alsuran Empire. I have collected artifacts from hundreds of worlds. This vessel is more than a weapon, it's a museum of lost histories. You two gentlemen almost became artifacts yourselves but I've decided to spare your vessel.
Anoraks: Call it an act of compassion. You're trying to reach home. In a way, so am I. We can work together to achieve both our goals.
CHAKOTAY: What do you propose?
Anoraks: In order to make the calculations required to restore Voyager I need to know about some of your experiences in this quadrant. What species you interacted with, how other components were affected by your presence.
PARIS: You can't find her, can you? I think Captain Janeway has been eluding you for the past two months. Otherwise, you would've destroyed Voyager by now.
Anoraks: I'm offering you a way out of this situation. You accept my offer, or when I do find Voyager I will destroy it.
Paris: And how many civilizations will you have to erase to send us merrily on our way. No thanks. We don't want that kind of blood on our hands.
Chakotay: Tom, hold on. You said you could control the destiny of a single molecule. If you made a precise enough calculation could you restore Voyager without harming anyone?
ANNORAX: It is possible but it's extremely difficult. That's why I need your cooperation.
PARIS: I'd rather spend a year in solitary confinement than listen to any of this!
Chakotay: Tom, have a seat!
PARIS: Chakotay, we can't trust him!
