The crew of Voyager swap stories of family histories. Janeway is most proud of her ancestor Shannon O'Donnell, who has been celebrated by the Janeway clan for generations as an astronaut and pivotal member of The Millenium Gate and several Mars projects that followed. When research and history-buff Tom Paris prove the stories wrong, that O'Donnell wasn't the hero Janeway made her out to be, the crew points out that her inspiration made Janeway join Starfleet and that is an accomplishment in itself.

Did You Know?


According to the "Countdown to Midnight" of Channel 3, three minutes pass between Henry Janeway entering his shop with supplies (at around 12 mins) and leaving it again when going after Jason. In screen time, the two time indexes are exactly three minutes apart. See more »


Neelix erroneously states at the beginning of the episode that the Great Wall of China is visible from space. This mistaken belief dates to well before satellites were even invented. See more »


Henry Janeway: Zeus himself watched over the travelers. We should follow his example.

Why would Janeway's great-great-great-great-great-great grandma look EXACTLY like her...and who cares anyway?!
28 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

'what does this have to do with anything?'---Henry Janeway

This episode is among the slightest and easiest to skip of all the episodes of "Star Trek: Voyager". It's not necessarily bad but it does seem irrelevant and like filler.

The episode consists of folks talking about their family histories. Janeway decides to tell everyone about her great-great-great-great- great-etc. grandmother...a woman who, oddly, looks EXACTLY like Captain Janeway. I hate when movies show distant relatives who look EXACTLY like the present individuals--it's as bad a cliché as the identical cousins cliché! The story involves the woman's romance with a grumpy old guy (Kevin Tighe) and has just about nothing to do with the show in any way!

By the way, I am a stickler for details and in the beginning of the show Mr. Neelix is trying to show off how smart he is. However, BOTH things he says are wrong!! Qin is not pronounced 'kin' and the Great Wall of China CANNOT be seen from space--that's an urban legend. Two more reasons to hate well as the writer who didn't do their homework when they wrote this one.
