An away team is exploring an asteroid where a previously unknown element is detected, but they discover that the element is emanating from dead alien bodies that are deposited on the asteroids through periodic dimensional rifts. Ensign Kim is caught in one of the rifts and appears on a distant planet in a chamber the Vhnori use to send their dead to the afterlife.
The Vhnori believe that their bodies pass into a higher emanation after they die and they believe that Kim has returned from the afterlife. Kim must enter one of the death chambers in order to be transported back to the asteroid field where the Voyager crew is looking for him.
