Aboard the Delta Flyer in search of dilithium, B'Elanna Torres crashes on a pre-warp planet. She's found by a local, Kelis the Poet, who believes her 'an Eternal' (a superior being sent from Heaven). He writes "The Away Mission of B'Elanna Torres" a 'Voyager play' based off of her logs, which he performs with his meager acting troupe. Eight days after the crash, B'Elanna awakens, bound and injured. Kelis informs her she is his muse, but he needs more stories to put on or his 'patron' will let them starve. B'Elanna makes an offer: he will retrieve some 'winter's tears' (dilithium) in return for more stories about 'Shining Voyager, Far From Home.'

The Poet writes a note to be handed off to B'Elanna. Although her universal translator is what makes the alien's language understandable, there is no reason to believe that she should be capable of reading their written language. See more
