Storyline

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.

Trivia

The stardate of the episode is never mentioned during the episode itself, however, in "The Voyager Conspiracy", Janeway mentions this stardate in connection with Seven reluctantly studying her ancestors, which is undoubtedly during this episode. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Shannon O'Donnell: I'm stuck in the future. You're stuck in the past. But maybe we could... get unstuck in the present.

Forgettable Episode (and Just How Big Are Their Databases?)
21 March 2017 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly boring and inconsequential episode. Overall, however, the thing it makes me wonder most is this: why does every starship seem to have nearly unlimited information about earth history?

Voyager apparently has access to 20th/21st century birth/death/marriage certificates, voter registration forms, census forms, &c. At least in TNG or DS9 that could be explained-away as them accessing the Federation network, but that's certainly not the case here, out in the Delta Quadrant. Anyhow, it is one of those silly little inconsistencies which makes this show so very weak.
