Storyline

When The Doctor's back-up module is found, his program is brought on-line for the first time in seven hundred years. In the future, Kyrian Museum of Heritage teaches a history that writes Voyager as playing a detrimental role in beginning their Great War with the Vaskans. The Doctor is the only living witness and sets the record straight, but the new "facts" give way to old tensions from the formerly warring races and the museum curator and The Doctor find themselves amidst violence and destruction instead of the peace and understanding they hoped for.

Quotes

[first lines]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [in the historical simulation] When diplomacy fails, there's only one alternative: violence. Force must be applied without apology. It's the Starfleet way.
