Goofs

The crew count is inconsistent from Star Trek: Voyager: In the Flesh. In that episode, Captain Janeway mentions that she has to run DNA scans for 125 crew members besides Chakotay and Tuvok, which would imply a crew count of 127, yet in this episode, the future Harry Kim mentions how he sent 150 people to their deaths.

Quotes

Captain Geordi La Forge: If you succeed, countless lives will be affected.
Chakotay: We're here to save 150 lives - our crew.
Captain Geordi La Forge: I understand. And I might be doing the same thing if I were in your position, but I've got my own crew to protect, not to mention fifteen years of history. So - I'm asking you again: stand down, and return the transmitter.
Chakotay: You know I can't do that.
Captain Geordi La Forge: And you know I have to try to stop you.
Chakotay: Yes, I know. Good luck.
Captain Geordi La Forge: Same to you.

You've destroyed Voyager, Mr. Kim...are you happy?!
25 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Timeless" is the 100th episode of "Star Trek: Voyager" and because of this milestone, the show has a short guest appearance from another series. You'll briefly see Captain Geordi LaForge--and LaVar Burton also directs this show. However, because it is such a milestone, I guess I had my hopes set too high and felt the show was just okay. However, I am in the distinct minority, as the show currently has an overall rating of 8.7.

When the show begins, the crew is celebrating that they're about to try out their new slipstream drive--which will allow them to get home very quickly. However, the revelry is cut a bit short when Paris thinks the calculations might be wrong and the ship is heading to disaster. You know that this WILL happen, because in the prologue, 15 year older Harry Kim and Chakotay find the ship buried in ice on a desolate planet. However, Harry is a real know-it-all and insists that he CAN fix the problem and he convinces the Captain to use the drive. This leads to the accident that causes the ship to get stuck in ice.

In the future, Kim and Chakotay were able to use the slipstream to get back home. However, Starfleet does not approve of their plan to use a Borg temporal device to try to change time and bring back the crew-- so the pair steal the device and set out for Voyager and are pursued by Captain LaForge.

This is a decent episode but as I said I guess I was hoping for something magical, such as "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" and their "Troubles and Tribble-ations"--one of the best episodes of ANY Trek series.
