Courage shall light the distant ages with her fire
That purified our souls of fear's desire;
She doth calm our sorrow, soothe our pain,
And she shall lead us back to peace again.

"The Distant Fire" is the fourth episode of the Star Trek: Pendragon series. After departing Cardassia, the crew of the USS Pendragon pays a visit to the refugee camps in the Volan system, and meets some familiar faces.
