Susan Dalian ...
Ensign Kaplan (as Susan Patterson)

Dunbar (as Christian R. Conrad)


In 1967, an apparent meteor crashes in the forest near a lone camper. Flash forward to the 24th century, where Voyager is on its trek back to the Alpha Quadrant. An artificial temporal rift opens in front of them, and a Federation vessel from the 29th century emerges. The pilot, CAPT Braxton, says that Voyager somehow is responsible for a temporal disruption in his time that destroys Earth's solar system. So he begins an attack on them, hoping to change the future. In defending themselves, Voyager disables Braxton's time ship, and he is pulled back into the time rift; so too is Voyager. Braxton's vessel is flung back to 1967 and is the meteor seen at the beginning. Voyager only goes back to 1996. Once in the 20th century, Voyager detects a warp signature in the Los Angeles area, so an away team - Janeway, Chakotay, Paris, and Tuvok - goes to investigate. Unknowingly, a SETI scientist - Rain - who has been scanning for a particular radiation signature finds it emanating from Voyager ... Written by Tony-B4

In the teaser, we see a young Henry Starling in the mountains in 1967, with a fresh tattoo on his forearm. When we see him in 1996, his tattoo is just as fresh. Tattoos fade over time, and after 29 years, Starling's tattoo would not look brand-new in 1996. See more »

Tuvok 'n The Hood
2 February 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

(Please Note: This is my review for both parts of the two-part episode "Future's End.")

Future's End is a beautiful time-travel episode which involves the crew of Voyager traveling to present-day Earth in order to stop a time-traveler from destroying their ship. If Voyager ever made a major motion picture, this is the script on which it should have been based.

Packed with story, fast-moving, and genuinely funny, this is Star Trek at its best. Sure, human cancer Sarah Silverman guest-starred as the astronomer, and yes, Egg Begley, Jr's role as evil technocrat was rushed and slightly under-developed, but there's so much here to love: A time ship from century 29 set to destroy Voyager for the good of mankind… Tuvok dressed like a brother from the hood… Kes and Neelix watching soap operas...

Okay, so Voyager should be better protected against a 1996 IBM desktop and the Doc's mobile emitter was the first step in the over-use and eventual abuse of the Doctor character, but this is too fun to nitpick.
