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 Meribor

Did You Know?


Amelia Earhart was the first woman to make a solo crossing of the Atlantic by airplane, in 1932. Five years later, on 2 July 1937, she disappeared over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to circumnavigate the globe. Despite searches for her plane which was presumed crashed, no wreckage was ever found. Hypotheses have been offered to explain what happened to her, ranging from the plausible to the fantastic and science fictional, such as this one. 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 »


Captain Kathryn Janeway: Mr. Paris, prepare the ship for landing.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Captain, I think I should tell you I've never actually landed a starship before.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: That's all right, Lieutenant, neither have I.

Enjoyable but kind of dumb if you think too much.
6 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The premise to "The 37s" is completely stupid. So, unless you are able to just watch it and turn off your brain, you'll struggle to enjoy this one.

The show begins with a 1930s pickup truck floating in space. Given this start, you KNOW you're going to be in for a bumpy ride. Soon Voyager lands on a nearby planet only to find a chamber filled with about a half dozen cryogenic tubes. There are humans inside and they're easily revived. Soon it becomes apparent that these folks were all kidnapped from Earth back in 1937. Huh?! To make matters more ridiculous, one of the revived ones is Amelia Earhart! Huh?!?! Soon the Voyager away team learns that there is a thriving civilization on the planet--one that welcomes them to come live there on their planet*. The Captain worries because perhaps most of the crew will make this choice and making taking the ship back to the Alpha Quadrant impossible.

Okay. So, to save money the crew isn't even shown visiting these wonderful cities! And, there's the whole Amelia Earhart angle. Dumb...but oddly entertaining. Goofy and contrived.
