In 1967, an apparent meteor crashes in the forest near a lone camper. Flash forward to the 24th century, where Voyager is on its trek back to the Alpha Quadrant. An artificial temporal rift opens in front of them, and a Federation vessel from the 29th century emerges. The pilot, CAPT Braxton, says that Voyager somehow is responsible for a temporal disruption in his time that destroys Earth's solar system. So he begins an attack on them, hoping to change the future. In defending themselves, Voyager disables Braxton's time ship, and he is pulled back into the time rift; so too is Voyager. Braxton's vessel is flung back to 1967 and is the meteor seen at the beginning. Voyager only goes back to 1996. Once in the 20th century, Voyager detects a warp signature in the Los Angeles area, so an away team - Janeway, Chakotay, Paris, and Tuvok - goes to investigate. Unknowingly, a SETI scientist - Rain - who has been scanning for a particular radiation signature finds it emanating from Voyager ...
Did You Know?
Shortly after arriving above earth. Paris points out that there are "surveillance satellites here."
Janeway orders him to maintain a high orbit. Later the astronomer points out that she has detected something at 40,000 km. But at 40,000 km. they would be at or below most geosynchronous satellites. Many surveillance satellites are in synchronous orbits. So whatever steps Paris took. They were inadequate. See more
