While would death sentace to send starship with crew throw Geodesic fold we seen auto nev equement allow starship pilot unmanned. USS Voyager crew could used Geodesic send starship design stay warp 9 perhaps months at a time. USS Voyager send in by auto pilot after USS Voyager crew beam other starship with supplies. Starfleet could working starship stay warp 9 for even longer periods of time.

I never really thought about it, but you're right...they could have sent a probe or something through a fold that would alert Starfleet that Voyager was alright. That would have been the smart thing to do...


Plot hole, I guess.

by that time, starfleet already knew Voyager was alright for about 2 years

^ I mean, they should have done it before "Inside Man" - they did say they'd considered opening a fold early on in their journey, but dismissed it because it would have killed them.

Would a fold work in another quadrant?  Could they successfully project one into another quadrant?
