Caretaker's array

Type: Nacene array
Affiliation: Nacene
Status: Destroyed (2371)
Crew: 2
Armament: Energy weapons, displacement wave

The Caretaker's array was a large space station in the Delta Quadrant not far from the planet Ocampa. Built by the Nacene, and powered by a Tetryon reactor the array served as a location from which the Caretaker could protect and serve the Ocampa. It acted as an energy source for the underground Ocampa settlements and continually pumped energy into the Ocampa city for nearly 1,500 years.

It contained medical and holographic facilities and was armed with energy weapons that were also capable of transmitting energy to Ocampa. It was also capable of generating a displacement wave that could drag ships from other parts of the galaxy.

After the Caretaker died in early 2371, the array was ordered destroyed by Captain Kathryn Janeway of the USS Voyager, in order to prevent the Caretaker's advanced technology from falling into the hands of the Kazon. A pair of tri-cobalt devices was enough to trigger the station's destruction. (VOY: "Caretaker")

After the events of "Cold Fire", the Nacene, also known as the Caretakers, were mentioned in the episode "The Voyager Conspiracy", where Seven of Nine is concerned that the power source for a graviton catapult is one of the generators from the Caretaker's array. The Caretaker and his array are mentioned in passing in the episodes "Projections", "Night", and "Endgame".
