Trajector

NotesImages
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Trajector [1]

Encountered by Voyager in 2371, the Sikarians are a highly advanced and peaceful people who are legendary in the Delta Quadrant for their generosity and kindness to strangers. Their technology is, in general, in advance of that of the Federation, most especially when it comes to transporters. The Sikarians used a device which they called the trajector, a transporter capable of sending people or objects across distances of 40,000 light years in an instant. The field required to accomplish this is some ten billion times greater than anything Voyager could have generated, requiring a field amplifier literally as large as a planet. Sikaris has a mantle of tetrahedral quartz twenty kilometres thick, whose crystalline structure was used by the Sikarians as an amplifier. [1]

Unfortunately, the Sikarians refused to allow Voyager to use their trajector and although members of the crew purchased the technology from a clandestine group on the planet, the use of the mantle as an amplifier, meant that it was impossible to use the device once they had departed. In addition, the trajector used antineutrinos as a catalyst for the space folding reaction, a technology incompatible with Federation technology. [1]

Voyager was thus unable to use this technology to assist in its return home. No other species has been encountered which has this technology. [1]

In 2399, ex-Admiral Picard discovered that the Sikarians had been assimilated by the Borg and that they had acquired the Trajector technology. Using typical Borg ingenuity, together with the knowledge gained from the assimilated Sikarians, they were able to overcome the need for a tetrahedral quartz mantel of a nearby planet. This allowed the Borg to build a trajector into any Borg Cube. Installed in the Borg Queen's chamber it was used as an emergency escape mechanism, reserved for the sole use of the Queen. With the assistance of Hugh, the ex-Borg, Picard was able to use it to escape with Soji. [2]
