Episode Title: "PRIME FACTORS"
Production Number: 810
Original Air Date: 03-20-95
The Voyager visits the planet Sikaris, which is widely known for its hospitality. The Sikarians have spatial trajector technology that folds space and can transport people up to 40,000 light-years, but their laws forbid sharing their technology. A Sikarian man offers to give the Voyager crew a spatial trajector device in exchange for the Voyager's database of literature, but Captain Janeway refuses to violate Sikarian laws.
Lt. Tuvok secretly makes the exchange without the captain's knowledge, but when Torres, Seska, and Carey test the device, they discover that it only works in proximity to Sikaris and it is incompatible with Federation technology; they almost cause a warp core breach while testing the device.
