Janeway takes Gwyn to the brig.

The Diviner sets a course to return to Tars Lamora.

On Tars Lamora, the crew rounds up the Unwanted and tell them to get onboard the Rev-12.

Rok, Murf, and Pog head to the Rev-12's engine to repair it. They discover the Watcher drones have reactivated.

Rok comes up with a plan to use the Protostar Murf ingested to solve the engine issue.

Zero approaches the Caitian child but a Watcher opens fire and hits them, knocking their limbs off. Dal realizes he can use the manacles to get the Unwanted evacuated.

The Watchers break into the engine room but Pog keeps them off until Rok can activate the Rev-12's engine, reinstating the asteroid's gravity and atmospheric shields.

As Dal tries to tie his combadge into the Caitian's manacle, Zero notices the return of the Protostar ship.
