A devastating explosion in the vicinity draws the Voyager crew to an M-class planet newly devoid of all life. While investigating on the surface, Janeway and Paris fall through a subspace fracture, whereby a temporal flux sends them back one day before the explosion. As senior officers struggle to find a way to retrieve them, and Janeway and Paris struggle to observe the Prime Directive of non-interference, Kes experiences a psychic vision of the explosion and the lives it took. Its trigger comes as a surprise. Written by statmanjeff

User Reviews

Like many temporal episodes, this one is rather weak.
3 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

After having seen hundreds of Star Trek series episodes, I noticed that many of the shows about time distortions are awfully weak. Sure, there are some exceptions (such as "Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever") but many of these shows just seem too cerebral and you wonder how many times they can beat this plot half to death...and this certainly is true with "Time and Again".

The Voyager comes upon an M-class planet that SHOULD support life. However, the entire planet is 100% dead--bereft of all life. How could this be?! So, a landing party goes down to explore--and soon a couple crew members disappear--sucked into the planet's past just a day earlier. However, NOW the planet is full of people! It seems that somehow the arrival of the Voyager led to a chain of events that wiped out everything living. So, it's up to Janeway to try to figure out how to prevent this.

This is an okay episode but the resolution was the biggest problem. It just seemed contrived and the ending was not especially memorable.
