A "spatial scission" causes Voyager to be duplicated. One of the Voyagers is under heavy attack from the Vidiians while the other remains impervious. Both Captain Janeways work together and agree to sacrifice one ship to save the other. Before self-sacrifice, the doomed Voyager sends it's version of Ensign Kim and newborn Naomi Wildman to the other ship to replace the Kim that was killed in the attack and the baby who died from complications shortly after birth.

4077-reference: The quantum analysis of the duplicated Voyager has the heading 'Scan Analysis 4077'. (4077 was the unit number on M*A*S*H
and is another frequently referenced number on displays and computer readouts in Star Trek, most notably in TNG). See more
Janeway mentions that she heard about a similar experimental duplication in the academy, but scientist could duplicate only matter, not antimatter. B'Elanna completes, that in this case the antimatter in the warp core is not duplicated, so the problem is that both ships try to gain power from the same warp core antimatter. It is known that Voyager's self destruct mechanism actually overloads the warp core. So in case of self destruct, both ships should have been destroyed because of the shared warp core. See more

Voyager isn't exactly anyone's idea of a nursery. And the Delta Quadrant isn't much of a playground.
My father had a saying, Captain: 'Home is wherever you happen to be.'
