In San Francisco, an obsessed former Enterprise engineer Reginald Barclay recruits Counselor Deanna Troi to help him communicate with the distant Voyager via a radically innovative system that puts him at odds with his superiors.
Assigned to the Pathfinder Project, Barclay secretly creates a startlingly realistic simulated hologram of the Voyager and its lifelike crew which he believes has aided his quest to send a one-way message to the actual ship 60,000 light years away. However, his unorthodox manner and single-minded passion for the project anger his commanding officers, forcing Barclay to risk everything when he disobeys orders and tries to generate his transmission through a temporary micro-wormhole.
A familiar engineer in the Alpha Quadrant is obsessed with bringing the U.S.S. Voyager home.

Created by Paris as a diversion for himself and his mates, sunny Fair Haven offers Janeway a deceptively realistic fantasy figure named Michael, whose physical and intellectual specifications are made to order for her. Soon, her attention is commanded by the trailing edge of a speedy wavefront that poses more of a threat than anyone knows.
Janeway develops a complicated and unexpected relationship with a holographic character.

The Doctor's ego soars when Voyager engages an advanced but arrogant race which is entranced by the medical officer's passable singing talent, granting him instant rock-star status that tempts him to leave the ship for his legions of fans.
Janeway and the crew are perplexed by the effect that The Doctor's voice and variety of song selections have on such a superior alien culture as the Qomar. Millions of them mob his concerts, countless "fan mail" messages arrive and groupies abound, but one particular female Qomar catches the good Doctor's eye, and he ponders resigning his commission to stay behind.

Chakotay, Kim, Paris and Neelix are taken hostage when the Delta Flyer is captured by a Borg Cube. The Borg will return the crewmembers in exchange for Voyager's navigational deflector. However, Voyager will be unable to go to warp without it. Seven of Nine tells Captain Janeway that the Borg most likely want Voyager's deflector in order to contact the Collective because their own is damaged.
While stalling the Borg, Janeway tells them that she is sending Seven over to make sure that her crewmembers are unharmed. Aboard the Borg Cube, Seven discovers that it is manned by neonatal Drones, or children. The children insist that the Borg will come for them once their link is re-established.
Because Voyager cannot give up its deflector, Janeway offers Seven's services in repairing the Cube's technology. One of the Borg children tells Janeway that she has exactly two hours before one of the hostages dies. While speaking with the Borg children, Seven tries to jostle their memories in hopes that they will turn away from the Collective and come aboard Voyager.

Her old friendship with Lieutenant Harry Kim ignites and deepens until the moment in his quarters when she realizes the horror and extent of her Kobali genes.
