They locate lavish gardens inhabited by way of an enigmatic alien race that holds the gardens sacred. The fragrent blossoms are attractive, attractive -- and much extra risky than they seem. one after the other, the Away group starts off to fall into deep comas from which they can't be revived. Unwilling to unfold the illness to Voyager, the Away crew is trapped on the earth till a remedy are available, yet their research is perceived as desecration by means of the religious worshippers of the gardens. Pursued via a fanactical mob, slowly succumbing to the insidious influence of the blossoms, Janeway faces both a violent demise -- or an unending sleep.
