Instead he is engaged to his girlfriend Libby and about to unveil a new design for a Starfleet runabout. Since he doesn't remember anything about the design, he complains of feeling ill and takes his leave the meeting. After accessing the Starfleet database about Voyager, Kim goes to Marseilles to ask Tom Paris, who also apparently did not join the Voyager crew, for his help. Paris refuses, and when Kim returns home, he is questioned by Starfleet for his unauthorized look at Starfleet's records of Voyager. Kim finds out from Cosimo, an alien supposed to look after him, that his shuttle craft intersected a time stream that caused him to switch into a reality of his life had he never joined the Voyager crew.

Did You Know?


Some of the exterior shots used in this episode are reused shots from various Star Trek movies. The scene of Ensign Kim's return to San Francisco is a re-use of the air tram flight Admiral Kirk takes to Starfleet Command in Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). The exterior shot of Starfleet Headquarters is a re-use from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986). Also an exterior night shot of the Golden Gate Bridge is a re-use from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). See more »


The entire time Ensign Kim is running away from security, he has his communicator badge on and a security anklet. They should be able to lock on to either and beam him into a prison cell. In addition, there would be no need for security forces to respond at all. Simply add a program that call for beam out to a secure location as soon as the anklet is tampered with. See more »

This one has logical problems even a sci-fi show cannot overcome.
11 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I do not expect a sci-fi show to be 100% believable. You have to suspend disbelief and that's not normally a problem. However, with "Non Sequitur" the problems are too many--like the script needed some more work before filming started.

The show begins with Harry Kim waking up in San Francisco. No, this is not a dream--he IS in San Francisco and it is as if he never became a member of the Voyager crew. In fact, he soon learns that Voyager WAS lost and its current whereabouts are unknown--but he didn't go on the ship! This makes no sense and throughout the show Harry tries to find out what's happening to him. The answer really doesn't make a lot of sense (after all, the folks who made this happen certainly could have done a lot more than just drop him in San Francisco). What makes FAR less sense, however, is that apparently Tom Paris didn't go aboard later and he has no recollection that anything is wrong--yet, inexplicably, Paris does a lot of insanely dangerous and illegal things because some stranger (Kim) asks him to! It's all very contrived and very illogical...even for "Star Trek: Voyager".
