Synopsis
The crew of the U.S.S. Voyager is unsettled as a secluded and conflicted Captain Janeway reflects on the decision she's made along the mission and the consequences those judgements have had for them all. But soon the team of the U.S.S. Voyager encounters two never before seen alien species -- a nocturnal alien and its foe, the Malon -- and knows that one will not survive without their intervention. Knowing that coming to their aid makes a detour through dark, desolate space necessary, the Captain alone must once again determine her crew's fate.

Notes
Season 5 Premiere.
This episode introduces the "Night Aliens," who have reflective silver eyes and are invisible unless you shine light on them, and the Malon, who dump their toxic theta radiation waste into the Void where the Night aliens live.
Neelix suffers from nihiliphobia, the "fear of nothingness."
This episode introduces the holo-program "Captain Proton." Tom Paris stars as Captain Proton, with Harry Kim as his side-kick and Seven as his secretary, Constance Goodheart. Tom and Harry programmed the Holodeck so that everything eppears in black and white.
Seven recommends that Tuvok try Borg regeneration instead of meditation -- "a simple cortical implant would be required."

Synopsis
Fifteen years after the Starship U.S.S. Voyager crashes into a desolate ice planet, Commander Chakotay and former Ensign Harry Kim, sole survivors of the tragedy, steal the Delta Flyer from a Federation shipyard and return to the U.S.S. Voyager's frozen hull. Aided by Chakotay's striking love interest, Lieutenant Tessa Omond, Chakotay and Kim are hotly pursued fugitives with hope that somewhere embedded beneath the ice, they'll retrieve the only tools they believe can change the fate of their long-dead fellow crew members.
 
Guest Cast
Christine Harnos (Lt. Tessa Omond)
LeVar Burton (Captain Geordi La Forge)
 
Notes
This is the 100th Episode of Star Trek: Voyager. (The premiere episode "Caretaker" was split into Episodes #100 and #101, so the 100th episode is production #201.)
Captain Janeway states that Voyager has been in the Delta Quadrant 4 years, 2 months, and 11 days.
The Quantum Slipstream Drive utilizes a quantum matrix, benemite crystals, and Borg technology.
Harry and Chakotay are wanted on two counts of high treason and conspiracy to violate the Temporal Prime Directive.
Harry uses a stolen Borg Temporal Transmitter to send a message back to the interplexing beacon in Seven's cranial implant. Her translink frequency is 108.44236000.
Captain Geordi La Forge is the commanding officer of the Galaxy-class starship U.S.S. Challenger NCC-71099.
Seven becomes intoxicated on one glass of champagne; she has a blood-synthehol level of 0.05%.
The brief slipstream run brought them 10 years closer to home.
"Timeless" ranked third for its time slot in all key male demographics, topping NBC, CBS and The WB. It was UPN's best rating in that time slot since Oct. 29, 1997.

Synopsis
Armed conflict erupts when aliens from the Fifth Dimension mistake Ensign Paris' "Captain Proton" holographic novel for reality. The aliens consider the novel's main character, the evil Dr. Chaotica, to be a threat so they knock the U.S.S. Voyager's controls off-line. Janeway is forced to assume the role of the story's powerful Arachnia, Queen of the Spider People, and infiltrate Chaotica's Fortress of Doom. Meanwhile, The Doctor takes on the role of the novel's President of Earth to help the aliens defeat Chaotica.
 
Guest Cast
Martin Rayner (Dr. Chaotica)
Nicholas Worth (Lonzak)
Jim Krestalude (Alien #1)
Tarik Ergin (Satan's Robot)
 
Notes
The aliens from "the fifth dimension" are phontonic beings. To them, the Holodeck appears real, but the "biochemical carbon-based" lifeforms do not.
Neelix actually tells Janeway that there only four working lavatories for a ship of 150 people, and only three working showers. He also mentions that the Bolians on board are uncomfortable because of this...either they go to the bathroom a lot or they need to take a lot of showers???
The Paramount press release mistakenly referred to "Lieutenant Paris 'Captain Proton' holographic novel" in the first sentence of the synopsis. At this point, he is an Ensign.
This episode was filmed while the bridge set was being rebuilt after the fire damage.
Tarik Ergin is usually seen playing background bridge officer Lt. Ayala.

Notes
"A Special Two-Hour Telefilm" airing at 8:00 pm.
Seven and Voyager found the remains of the S.S. Raven in the episode "Raven".
Through the logs downloaded from the S.S. Raven, we get a glimpse into the lives of the Hansens before they were assimilated.
The Borg assimilated approximately 392,000 drones from Species 10026 (Brunali) after Seven joined them.
Using the Borg Transwarp Coil, Voyager was able to get 20,000 light years closer to home, shaving 15 years off their trip.
Borg drones assigned to Unimatrix 01 are in direct contact with the Borg Queen. Seven of Nine was the Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 01.
The Borg don't have a homeworld, but a massive Borg Unicomplex in space which contains trillions of drones.
Susanna Thompson previously played Dax's former lover Lenara Kahn in the DS9 episode "Rejoined", which featured the infamous "lesbian kiss." Susanna Thompson was one of the final actresses considered for the role of the Borg Queen in the movie Star Trek: First Contact.
This episode did very well in the ratings, with a 7.0 rating/11% share.
The Borg refer to Humans as Species 5618; origin Spatial Grid 325. The Borg refer to Ktarians as Species 6961.

Synopsis
Captain Janeway reminisces about her ancestor Shannon O'Donnel, the first of her family's long line of explorers and one who helped build the Millennium Gate on Earth. As Janeway relates the story, the episode revisits the town of Portage Creek, Indiana on New Year's Eve 2000, as Shannon O'Donnel nears the deadline to convince the town's last holdout, local bookstore owner Henry Janeway, to approve the building of massive, half a mile high Milliennium Gate, a model for the first colony on Mars.

Notes
Shannon O'Donnel was an engineer who trained to be an astronaut, but was cut from the NASA space program.
The Millennium Gate was a self-contained biosphere that was large enough to be seen from orbit.

Voyager. But when the new starship captain, Janeway, catches the mysterious Seven aboard the brand new U.S.S. Voyager, she detains her, an interference that could contaminate the time-line.

Notes
Assistant Chief Engineer Joe Carey is seen in engineering on Janeway's first day, flirting with (Ensign) Seven and later speaking with Captain Janeway. This is his first appearance since episode #11: "State of Flux".
Seven mentions the events that took place in Star Trek: First Contact when the Borg attempted to stop Zefram Cochran's warp drive launch.
Relativity scans show that the weapon was planted by Species 329, The Kazon. It's actually a future version of Captain Braxton, who is suffering from temporal psychosis and blames Voyager.
Captain Braxton was first introduced in the 3rd season 2-parter "Future's End, Part I"; however, he was played by Allan Royal.

Synopsis
The U.S.S. Voyager finds another Federation starship lost in the Delta Quadrant, the science vessel U.S.S. Equinox, and helps it stave off an attack by creatures from another spatial realm. Captain Janeway now has a kindred spirit in its commander, Captain Ransom, and helps him salvage his war-torn vessel so they can journey home together. But when The Doctor retrieves data from the U.S.S. Equinox research lab, Janeway learns the hard truth that Captain Ransom has seriously violated the Starfleet oath by commiting mass murder in the Delta Quadrant. When she strips him of his command and confines him to quarters, he and his crew manage to escape with the U.S.S. Voyager's advanced technology -- and The Doctor and Seven of Nine as hostages aboard their ship.

Notes
The U.S.S. Equinox NCC-72381 is a small, short-range Nova-class science vessel designed for planetary research. Its maximum warp speed is warp 8. It is assumed it was also pulled into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker (see episode #1: "Caretaker"). A week in, a run-in with the Krowtonan Guard killed 39 Equinox crewman, half of the ship's crew.
Captain Ransom is a Starfleet exobiologist, promoted to Captain after he made first contact with the Yridians (Borg species 6291), who were believed to have been extinct.
Starfleet Regulation 191, Article 14: "In a combat situation involving more than one ship, command falls to the vessel with tactical superiority."
Starfleet Regulation 3, Paragraph 12: "In the event of imminent destruction, a captain is authorized to preserve the lives of his crew by any justifiable means."
B'Elanna and Max dated while they were at the Academy. He called her by her initials, "B.L.T.".
