Storyline

In 1967, an apparent meteor crashes in the forest near a lone camper. Flash forward to the 24th century, where Voyager is on its trek back to the Alpha Quadrant. An artificial temporal rift opens in front of them, and a Federation vessel from the 29th century emerges. The pilot, CAPT Braxton, says that Voyager somehow is responsible for a temporal disruption in his time that destroys Earth's solar system. So he begins an attack on them, hoping to change the future. In defending themselves, Voyager disables Braxton's time ship, and he is pulled back into the time rift; so too is Voyager. Braxton's vessel is flung back to 1967 and is the meteor seen at the beginning. Voyager only goes back to 1996. Once in the 20th century, Voyager detects a warp signature in the Los Angeles area, so an away team - Janeway, Chakotay, Paris, and Tuvok - goes to investigate. Unknowingly, a SETI scientist - Rain - who has been scanning for a particular radiation signature finds it emanating from Voyager ... Written by Tony-B4

Wow...the ship is sent back to 20th century Earth...I bet that's never been done before...
17 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is yet another time travel episode that takes the ship back to the 20th century! Despite a heavily reused plot idea, this one manages to deliver in every other way--and this two-parter is well worth seeing.

The episode begins like most others--temporal police from the 29th century arrive and announce that they are going to destroy Voyager in order to prevent the future from being wiped out! However, Captain Janeway isn't about to just let them blow up the ship and in the process of fighting back, the captain of the temporal ship AND Voyager are sent back in time. Why they then arrive in 20th century Earth never did make much sense to me since they were in the Delta Quadrant.

When crew from Voyager land on Earth they soon discover the time cop--but apparently he landed there a few decades earlier. Soon they realize that the problem with the time police is not due to them but a major jerk from the 20th century, Mr. Starling (Ed Begley, Jr.), who apparently discovered the time cop's damaged ship back in 1967 and has been exploiting the 29th century technology to become a mega-rich 'genius'. Can the landing party manage to beat this jerk using very futuristic technology combined with zero ethics?

Guest starring along with Begley is Sarah Silverman who is rather cute as a 20th century lady who want to help Voyager. What I particularly liked about this one is seeing the landing party trying to fit in-- and landing at Venice Beach in California--which is well known for being almost like a freak show atmosphere (this is not meant as an insult). This is when Tuvok remarks "We could have worn our Starfleet uniforms...I doubt if anyone would have noticed!". In fact, several times Tuvok delivered some zingers. It also offers the first time for the Doctor to become completely mobile--using 20th century technology to be able to walk about on Earth unimpeded. Overall, this is a very clever episode that combines a few laughs and an engaging story.
