Detailed Plot Synopsis of The Garden - Star Trek Voyager 11

In this story the crew are in desperate need of vital nutritional supplies. To get what they need the crew must trade with a mysterious race called the Kirse, who live on a paradise planet and are legendary for their secretive ways.
The Kirse seem friendly enough but they will trade only in return for Voyager's transporter technology. Should Janeway trade with the possibility that the technology will fall into the wrong hands?
Then they are forced to defend the Kirse when their enemies the Andirrim attack while away teams are still on the planet. They have to hope that their secretive allies are not as dangerous as their common foe. What is the Kirse's most guarded secret and does it hold the key to their survival. A great read and keeps you guessing until the end. True to the style and pace of the Voyager series.
