YATI : In this episode, Janeway talks about Carey's death and makes the comment that exploration is not worth a single life. How can a Starship captain possibly believe this to be true? Every starship we've ever seen has lost crewmembers on a regular basis. We've been told often that you accept the risks that come with a Starfleet uniform. Yet now Janeway decides that Starfleet should pull back from exploration because of these deaths?
Great Moment : The Friendship One probe is a lovely design, just right for its time period. Not like another recent design I could mention...
Body Count : One - Carey.
Factoid : John Prosky also played Brathaw in the DS9 episode "For the Cause".
Peter Dennis also played Issac Newton in the Voyager episode "The Darkling".
Quote : "We the people of Earth greet you in a spirit of peace and humility. As we venture out of our solar system we hope to earn the trust and friendship of other worlds." - the Friendship One message.

Plotline

Voyager is assigned to go and find a probe launched by Earth three hundred years ago which vanished in their vicinity. Launched long before the Prime Directive, the probe was programmed to give technical information to any species it encountered in order to allow them to use matter/antimatter power systems. Unfortunately when Voyager finds the probe they discover that it passed this information on to a primitive society, with disastrous results.
