Voyager is trapped in orbit above a strange planet where time passes thousands of times faster than in the surrounding galaxy. As the population of the planet evolves Voyager becomes an integral part of their culture. Eventually they develop technology that allows them to send someone to the "Sky Ship".

The script was being prepped for shooting under the title "Wink of an Eye" when production realized that there was already a show called Star Trek: Wink of an Eye
(1968). Furthering the coincidence, both stories feature aliens existing at a much faster rate who visit the ship and see the slower crew apparently "frozen". See more
When the medieval Protector is dictating his letter for the "Sky Ship" (Voyager) to the Elder, the words are written in perfect English. While it's common for Star Trek aliens' speech to be rendered in English for the benefit of the audience, this rule is not supposed to apply to visual symbols. (Except for everyone's mouth movements: technically all Star Trek aliens should have their voices out of sync like a badly dubbed foreign film, but this would be too distracting and irritating to the audience.) It would have been more interesting and logically consistent if the letter were written in some alien script. In fact, this was done later in Star Trek: Voyager: Memorial
#6.14. See more
That's one planet that never showed up on the multiple choice exam.
