The Delta Flyer crash lands after encountering an ion storm. Voyager desperately tries to contact and rescue Tuvok, Paris, and a badly injured Ensign Samantha Wildman. Meanwhile aboard ship, Neelix attempts to distract young Naomi Wildman, who is eager to hear from her mother. Finding out the truth, Naomi escapes into a popular children's holo-novel.
Did You Know?
Harry Kim, Samantha Wildman, and Captain Janeway mention that they thoroughly enjoyed the Flotter "holostories" when they were children, with Janeway claiming to have flooded the entire Forest of Forever when she was six. This suggests that some form of holographic technology was in use as a recreational device for children long before holodecks were in use on starships. See more
The number of Naomi Wildman's cranial ridges has changed. She now has four, when previously she had three. Since they are most likely made of bone-like material, it is highly unlikely that their number would change so suddenly. At least this would be true for humans; however, Naomi is part-alien and the number of ridges might well change as the child ages. Compare with human teeth: children have a total of 24 milk teeth, whereas adults have a total of 32 teeth. See more
