LOG LINE: The Voyager crew becomes hopeful when they encounter a small wormhole through which they communicate with a cargo vessel on the other side...in the Alpha Quadrant.

SYNOPSIS: The crew of Voyager think they've found a possible way home when Lt. Harry Kim discovers a small wormhole, or tunnel, in space. While it turns out to be too small to travel through, a probe is sent into the hole to try and find out where it leads. The probe doesn't make it through, but it is scanned by a vessel on the other side, in the Alpha Quadrant. The vessel is a Romulan ship, and Captain Janeway opens up communication with the captain, Telek. At first suspicious, Telek eventually allows himself to be beamed aboard the Voyager. While a bizarre twist of fate keeps the crew of Voyager from transporting home, they do send messages through to their loved ones.
