Prime Factors was the tenth episode of Star Trek: Voyager, in the first season of the series.


Captain's log, stardate 48642.5
The crew is enjoying an evening on Sikaris. They are discovering, to their delight, that reports of this species' hospitality have not been exaggerated.

The crew of Voyager encounter the Sikarians, a civilization who possess spatial trajector technology. A faction soon exists within the crew that believe Starfleet's Prime Directive should be bypassed to acquire the advanced transporter systems that will get them home.
