Voyager enters the Year of Hell that Kes once reported. A Krenim timeship, lead by Captain Annorax, aims to rewrite regional history by selectively wiping out entire species of warp-capable humanoids from ever existing. Though many light years away, Voyager, in protecting itself with temporal shielding from a foe, becomes a fly in the ointment of Annorax' plan for 100% restoration of the Krenim Imperium.

The basic methodology of Anorax's weapon is almost exactly that used by the 'Eternals' in Isaac Asimov

After erasing the Garenor civilization from history, Obrist reports that the Krenim Imperium has reverted to a pre-warp state. If that were true, the Krenim warship Voyager had been dealing with at that time should have vanished completely, not just diminished in size, unless the Krenim in that timeline are so bold as to venture into deep space in primitive vessels without warp drive to confront other, more powerful ships, which seems unlikely.
