Synopsis
Left for dead by the Kazon, Captain Janeway and the crew brave the elements and hostile natives on Hanon IV, a primitive planet. When Hogan is viciously killed by a land eel and then Kes is abducted by primitive humanoids, Chakotay and Tuvok must attempt a precarious rescue. They prepare for a vengeful alien attack while a gloating Culluh, at the helm of Voyager, announces a new era in Kazon history and prepares to annihilate most of the Delta Quadrant. As Culluh tests the ship's power, Seska activates the Emergency Medical Holographic Program only to have the Doctor report startling facts about her newborn baby. The Doctor detects that Ensign Suder is stowed away on board and learns that Lieutenant Paris, with the help of a Talaxian convoy, is piloting a damaged shuttlecraft, desperately working to somehow save Voyager. The Doctor soon arouses Seska's suspicions and is permanently deactivated, leaving Suder as the only hope to retake the ship. All the while, Suder is tortured by the realization that he must resort once again to violence.

Synopsis
Tuvok suddenly begins having strange, disorienting attacks which cause a disturbing childhood memory to resurface. As the trauma begins to degrade his neural system he knows he must take action or he will die. To access and conquer the debilitating memory fragment, he asks Captain Janeway to act as his guide and enter into a mind meld with him. Amazingly, the mind-meld takes Tuvok and Janeway to the scene of the young Vulcan's first Starfleet duty -- on the bridge of the U.S.S. Excelsior with Captain Hikaru Sulu in command.

Notes
This episode commemorates the 30th anniversary of "Star Trek" and marks the first time a cast member from the classic "Star Trek" series has appeared on "Star Trek: Voyager."
Tuvok served as a junior science offer with a rank of Ensign on the U.S.S. Excelsior NCC-2000.
The episode also contains references back to the feature film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. In this version of events, Lt. Valtane dies. When Tuvok comes to his aide, he passes a virus to Tuvok. The virus masks itself as a disturbing memory engram, which the brain supresses.
An older Kang was also featured on the Deep Space Nine episode "Blood Oath".

Synopsis
The Doctor's rehearsal of an opera duet on the Holodeck is interrupted when he is called to treat the severely injured Lieutenant Paris, who, while aboard a shuttecraft with Torres, has been attacked by an unknown alien force. When the Doctor cannot remember the medical procedures necessary to save Paris, it's discovered that the Emergency Medical Holograph database has overloaded and The Doctor's memory circuits are rapidly degrading. While the rest of the crew fends off the cluster of alien ships -- the first they've ever encountered with transporter technology in the Delta Quadrant -- Torres attempts to reinitialize the Doctor's program, but forewarns that her efforts would restore the original E.M.H. program, causing the Doctor to in effect, be erased. As the rapidly failing Doctor becomes more and more disoriented, Kes pleads for an alternative remedy. So Torres leads the Doctor to the holodeck where they activate the Jupiter Station diagnostic program, a simulation of the place where his database was originally written, and find that the diagnostic matrix is a holographic recreation of his creator, Dr. Lewis Zimmerman.
 
Guest Cast
Robert Picardo (Dr. Lewis Zimmerman)
 
Notes
In order to save The Doctor, the Diagnostic Zimmerman Program is overlayed onto the EMH Program. The procedure saves the EMH Program, but the Zimmerman Diagnostic is no longer available.

The dreams turn haunting for Torres as the young girl's father, Jareth, participates in a resettlement of the Regressives -- and eventually their total extermination.

In response to a distress signal, Commander Chakotay lands his shuttlecraft on a planet's surface but is viciously attacked.

The Borg cube was destroyed by an electro-kinetic storm. The surviving Borg who escaped to the planet were severed from the Collective. After the link was severed, the colony fell into chaos. They manipulated Chakotay into reactivating the neural generator on the Borg cube to re-link the colonists into a new collective. After the link is established, they destroy the cube to prevent their discovery by the Borg.
Riley was assimilated at the Battle of Wolf 359 while serving as science officer on the U.S.S. Roosevelt. (See TNG episode "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II" and DS9 episode "Emissary".)

Notes
In the future that Kes experiences, the crew is attacked by a race known as the Krenim. The Krenim use chronoton torpedoes which interact with the bio-temporal chamber to cause Kes to go out of temporal sync. The crew refer to the time passing through Krenim space as the "Year of Hell." In this future, Janeway, Torres and Joe Carey are killed by the Krenim. Chakotay assumes Captain. Paris and Kes eventually marry and have a child, Linnis, who also ages at the same rate as Kes. Linnis marries Harry Kim and they have a child, Andrew, who also ages quickly. In addition to Chakotay, Tuvok, Paris, and Kim have all been promoted; Neelix wears a Starfleet uniform and is a security officer.
When Kes returns to present time, she warns Captain Janeway about the Krenim. Voyager will encounter them in the Season 4 two-part episode "The Year of Hell".
The future Kes had long, curly hair. When she returns to the "present," she still has long hair, which she keeps the rest of the season.
The events of this episode will contribute to Kes' departure in Season 4.

Synopsis
As they approach the heart of dangerous Borg territory, the Voyager crew witnesses the near decimation of a Borg armada by mysterious alien lifeforms the Borg call "Species 8472," which is impervious to both Borg and Starfleet technology. When Kim and Chakotay lead an Away Team inside the heavily damaged Borg cube, they are able to investigate the alien lifeform's bio-ship. Moments before they are transported out, Kim is viciously attacked by the mysterious organic-looking alien. As he lies in Sickbay, contaminated with alien cells and transforming into an alien being, Kes has terrorizing premonitions about the new enemy and Janeway realizes it's no longer the Borg they must be worried about.
