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
The 1936 model Ford truck found drifting in space for 400 years and beamed into the Voyager cargo bay not only has tires still perfectly inflated with air, but also has enough gas & oil in the engine, as well as a charged battery, so that Lt. Paris is able to start the engine on almost the first try. In the total vacuum of space, air would have almost instantaneously purged itself from primitive 1936 truck tires, as would oil, gas, etc., from the engine. In addition, a 1936 car/truck battery also contains water and is not going to retain water and/or an electrical charge in space for 400 years. See more
Now hear this, Commander. There's a gun pointed at the lady's head right now. So you call Washington, and you tell them we're holding your people prisoner, and they're not going anywhere until I personally talk to J. Edgar Hoover!
