Voyager answers an ancient SOS distress and finds 8 humans - including Amelia Earhart - in cryo-stasis on a nearby planet. There are thousands more Humans living in cities nearby, descendants of Humans abducted from Earth in 1937 by a race seeking to use them as slaves. Both sides are happy to find some answers and new friends. When Voyager's crew is invited to stay and live on the "new" Earth, Janeway is worried so many will accept she may find herself the only one who truly wants to get home. Written by

This script was produced in the first season, but was held back to air as the premiere of season two. In fact, this is the earliest season premiere in Star Trek history, August 28, 1995. Janeway states that the year is 2371, which is the same year as the first season. See more
On Voyager's bridge, Amelia Earhart asks Lt. Paris, "How fast?" Lt. Paris replies "Warp 9.9. In your terms, that's about 4 billion miles per second." Four billion miles per second is 21,505.38 faster than the speed of light. This would have let Voyager travel the 75,000 light years it was sent in about 3.5 years, thus ruining the storyline of being over 70 years from earth and the Federation. See more
Captain Kathryn Janeway
The remarkable thing about the humans on this planet... is that they evolved very much like the people on Earth. Tens of thousands of light years apart, both civilizations managed to create a world they could be proud of - one where war and poverty simply don't exist.
