Summary[edit | edit source]

Captain Rudolph Ransom is trapped on his ship, the Equinox, to allow the Voyager to get away. He believes that he will pay for his horrible crime of abuse towards the nucleogenic lifeforms he used as fuel to get home, and will pay it with death. All of a sudden, from an unlikely source, he is offered to chance to either die in peace, or to live forever in an immortal dream-like state with visions of the past.
