||"We often fear what we don't understand. Our best defence is knowledge." - Tuvok to Tressa
Lieutenant Tuvok takes charge of some alien children after crash landing on an alien moon. But they are vanishing one by one, and these seems to be little he can do about it. Meanwhile, the aliens who own the moon seem more concerned with their traditions than their children - but for good reason as it turns out.
