They'd been warned.... "Photon torpedoes," Janeway said. "Fire all bays. Aim strategically, Tuvok. I want that vessel stopped. Target their engines. " Phasers still lighting up the hulls of her enemies, Voyager hissed out a spread of torpedoes, point blank into the approaching vessel.

I don't want to lose shields. " "Aye, Captain," Janeway thumbed the comm off. " "Captain-" Paris called her attention and pointed at the forward viewscreen. " Tuvok answered, as the largest ship sped toward Voyager "Pursuing a collision course," he said calmly.
