It’s just a lot is riding on this, on me.

What if I can’t stop the civil war?

[transport whooshes]


Hek’zana, Solum! Zelthuu’ra nok.

Don’t be afraid.

I have traveled here from the stars on behalf of a brave group of explorers called the Federation.

[bell ringing]

You, come with us.

[bell ringing]


Elders of Solum, I am Gwyndala, one of you.

I come with a message from distant worlds, peaceful worlds, other civilizations I’ve seen with my own eyes who want nothing more than to meet us.

Solum, the Vau N’Akat are truly incredible.

We can share our gifts with the cosmos if we embrace the truth that we are not alone in the universe.


They know.

[tense music]

I’ve already warned them.


Behold, the spy I said would come, a traitor to Solum, sent by our enemies above.

What? No, she…she’s lying.

I’m here on a mission of peace

This imposter was not born here but made to look like one of us, her heirloom stolen.

She will say anything so we kneel to her Starfleet masters.

I have seen firsthand the future she wants for us.

It is Solum’s destruction.


She’s trying to trick you.

You have to listen to me. I…I am Vau N’Akat.

My word is as good as hers.

No, child.

You will never truly be one of us, but I have always belonged here, for I am Vau N’Akat.

My younger self stands here as living proof of my origins, but who are you?

[combadge chirps]

Gwyn to Starfleet.

Rendezvous. Come in, Starfleet.

I need an emergency transport.

Beam me out now.

Gwyn, what’s going on?

Hold, two Vau N’Akat warships out of nowhere.

We’re under attack! [screams]


Admiral’s log, classified. Stardate 61859.6.

“Voyager” has arrived at the Beta Quadrant border where we’ve located our mission’s objective, an unstable time rift leading to a future reality some 52 years from now, and based on his SOS, I’ve reason to believe Chakotay is stranded on the other side.

Commander, how’s our data probe?

She’s breaking up but still transmitting.

Holding. Holding.

[tense orchestral music]

[computer chirping and hissing]

I suspect you’ll need more than a probe to survive that trip.

Keep trying.

I want nothing in the way of our mission.

I don’t get it.

Why is Janeway lying to us about her mission.

Technically, she omitted facts.

We were never meant to see that hidden spacecraft in shuttlebay three.

And I wish you guys never told me.

I was innocent!

And now I’m an accomplice.

An accomplice to what?


Uh, nothing.


Just Starfleet flunky talk. Inside joke.

Carry on. As you were.

They told us Janeway was here to observe the wormhole, not fly into it with some secret ship on a crazy time travel rescue mission.

I sense Janeway is omitting a lot of facts.

And now we’re gonna find out why.

Would you stop doing that?

Jefferies tubes only lead to trouble.

♪ ♪

What are these strange readings?

Something from the wormhole?

No, this is different.

An energy fluctuation off the forward hull.

Whatever it is, it’s here.

[anomaly pulses]

Is that a ship? A living being?

No warp signature.

No life signs, but we are getting a hail from it.

Put it through.

[overlapping voices] You cannot go.

Can you clear up the signal?

That is the signal.

All be lost.

This is Admiral Janeway of the starship “Voyager.”

We’re having trouble understanding you.

Do you require assistance?


Do not enter the anomaly.

I assure you, we have no plans to enter the wormhole at this time.

Where are you calling from?

[anomaly whooshes]

We’ve lost the signal.


Seems our activities have attracted some unwanted attention.

Ah! [body thuds]

Ha, uh, Janeway, admiral. [clears throat]

I was just, uh, doing some routine maintenance.

Dal, I’m sorry, but now is really not the time.


No civilians on the bridge.

Fine, maybe I’ll just meet you later in shuttlebay three.

What happened in there?

I think I got my message across.



The admiral wants to see you in the observation lounge, all of you.

Computer, erase logs and seal the doors.

I’d like this off the record. Affirmative.

So you’ve had quite an education unsupervised on my ship.

Tell me, what do you know about shuttlebay three?


Well, you’re hiding a cloaked ship.

Seems like you know quite a bit, but you don’t know everything.

An isolinear chip from your “Protostar” found after its explosion six months ago.

We followed a beacon to its black box, salvaged what we could, and our scientists recovered this.

Classified security footage recorded in a future 52 years from now, the last known sighting of Captain Chakotay.


After his ship went through an unstable wormhole, he was captured by the Vau N’Akat.

Held prisoner for months, he watched helplessly as they turned the “Protostar” into a weapon to destroy the Federation.

Oh, the Construct. Who could forget?

Chakotay wouldn’t allow Starfleet to be annihilated.

His plan was to commandeer the ship, but his first officer fell in battle.

Time was short.

He couldn’t fly it, so he did the next best thing.

I don’t know if anyone will ever find this, but if they do, I may not be coming back from this one.

Tell Kathryn…

I’m sorry…

[recording crackles]

But I’m doing this for you.

[soft dramatic music]

♪ ♪


Such pain.

Janeway, we didn’t know.

He was the one who launched the “Protostar” through the wormhole so it would be lost in the past.


Until we found it on Tars Lamora.

We were just a bunch of nobodies on a rock.

No hope, no future, until we found that ship.

He saved us.

His sacrifice changed our lives.

He changed mine, too, and that’s why we have to save him.

[sighs softly]

The rescue was classified. Highly dangerous.

If I know anything, time travel is not to be trifled with.

We analyzed the rift six ways from Sunday.

The exit is fixed on Solum.

Though separated by 52 years, time on the other end is synced with ours.

So if an hour passes here…

Then an hour passes there.

We can’t go in until after Chakotay launches the “Protostar,” which happens in exactly 41 hours.

Why 41 hours? Can’t we get him now?

Because if Chakotay never sends the “Protostar” back to Tars Lamora, the Diviner might never go after it.

Gwyn might never be born.

And none of us would ever meet.

Lose Gwyn or spend years in the mines?

What kind of choice is that?

There isn’t one.

It’s a classic time paradox.

Didn’t you read “Temporal Mechanics 101”?


That’s why we built the “Infinity.”

It has cloaking to prevent detection and temporal shielding designed to resist time paradoxes.

It’s our only hope to get him back.

But Starfleet feels it’s still too risky.

If word leaks I’m keeping this mission alive, they may pull me out, and we lose our shot completely.

He was my number one.

Can I trust you to keep this secret until I make the call?

Yes, Admiral.

I… I had nowhere else to go.

And then you came here to me because I’m… [chuckles]

I’m your father.

From a different time when I only ever knew you as our Diviner.

You traveled into the past to prevent Solum from falling to civil war.

It’s why I’m here, to save it.

I heard warnings about an imposter in the capital, but I never… you must understand, this is a lot to take in.

Why should I believe you?

How? Only I can…

It’s the same heirloom.

You passed it down to your progeny.




It’s astonishing. You are astonishing.

I have to admit, you’re not quite what I expected you to be.

I wasn’t even sure you’d help me.


Refuse to help my own daughter?

Surely, I don’t make that bad of a father, do I?

[sighs] It’s…

♪ ♪


Well, well, I am willing to help however I can.

I’m just a lonely astronomer on a planet that cares nothing about the stars.


I dreamed of life on worlds beyond ours, and here it is on my doorstep, my own child.

You see those worlds.

You taught me their languages, thousands of them.


I don’t have the answers you seek, but I know where we can find them.

The Arcanum.

It’s a reliquary of our great history and knowledge.

[hydraulics whirring]


Stay back!

It’s just the Lorekeeper.

He’s barely more than a library with legs.

Greetings. What knowledge do you seek?

I’m sorry.

I thought you were somebody else.

The elders think that I’m an imposter.

I need Solum to listen to me.

Place your heirloom in the light.

The Va’Lu’Rah.

The most ancient rite of Solum.

Those who succeed are acknowledged as true Vau N’Akat by all who witness.

A dangerous ceremony from our earliest origins, when we rose from the depths to overcome.

[soft dramatic music]

But it hasn’t been tried in millennia.

And we’re sure this will work?

The Va’Lu’Rah is the foundation of our culture.

It will prove you are one of us.

They would have to listen to you.

If you survive.
