Had that last sentence been a threat? Or was he warning her that she was looking at a future fractal of herself, her own command?

Stiff as an old woman, she pushed up from her chair. Every bone in her legs clicked as if carrying on the argument by themselves.

The bridge turned cold as she entered. She sensed it, but as if she were walking into an hallucination. Chakotay, Tuvok, Seven, Paris, Kim, The Doctor, others ... she sensed the eyes of each one, and met none.

"Doctor," she said, looking at the main screen until she could muster what it took to look at him, "return to their research lab and retrieve all the data you can locate on the aliens. I want to find a way to communicate with them."

The normally bellicose hologram simply said, "Aye, Captain," and mobilized.

To Seven, Janeway gritted her teeth and stiffly said, "Go to their engine room. Take those warp core modifications off-line."

Seven didn't even muster the "aye" The Doctor had managed. She simply left. Even she, apparently, could feel the gravity change now that their grim captain was here, dragging her baggage.

Only Chakotay dared approach her as she lowered into her command chair.

"Captain?" he urged.

She dug her fingernails into the fake leather on the chair's arms. She didn't look at nun, or anyone.

"Let's try," she said, "to make first contact the right way."
