Can anyone remember what Paris said about the sector? It could added to the article as the cover story the Federation put out. -- Rebelstrike2005 14:36, 11 Apr 2005 (EDT)
- The dialog between Paris and Janeway:
- JANEWAY: Ketteract managed to synthesize a single molecule particle of Omega but it only existed for a fraction of a second before it destabilized. This was a classified research station in the Lantaru Sector. Ketteract and one hundred twenty-six of the Federation's leading scientists were lost in the accident. Rescue teams attempting to reach the site discovered an unexpected secondary effect. There were subspace ruptures extending out several light years.
- PARIS: The Lantaru Sector. It's impossible to create a stable warp field there. You can only fly through it at sublight speeds. I was always told that was a natural phenomenon. You're saying it was caused by a single molecule of this stuff?
- JANEWAY: Omega destroys subspace. A chain reaction involving a handful of molecules could devastate subspace throughout an entire Quadrant. If that were to happen, warp travel would become impossible. Space-faring civilization as we know it would cease to exist. When Starfleet realized Omega's power, they suppressed all knowledge of it.
sublight only in the area Edit
Would it take at least 3 years to get to the site (at full impulse, assuming that's the only thing you can use in the area)?--Peacock486 01:57, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
