Trivia

One day on the planet is slightly more than one second long (1.03 seconds) in normal time, so three years on the planet would only be 18.9 minutes in normal time. This would mean that 100 years on the planet would pass every 31.5 hours. Since Voyager seems to have been in orbit for centuries of planetary time it is likely that the script takes place over a week or two of time for the crew. See more »

A neat episode
2 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Voyager is stuck in orbit around an odd planet that is progressing far, far faster than time on Voyager. For every second on the ship, apparently a day passes below. So, the Voyager crew observe and see a society move from the bronze age to the rudiments of space travel during their short time there! However, when these astronauts arrive on Voyager, these folks see that the Voyager crew is stationary due to the time differential. I was surprised because I just assumed the locals would be on Voyager time when they entered the ship. What happens next you'll just have to see for yourself. Suffice to say, it's a really cool episode and the concepts are similar to ones shown recently in "Interstellar" where there is a huge time differential on the planet versus the ship in orbit. Well worth seeing and one of the better episodes.
