Ok, I'm going to go on a little rant here, so bear with me. Let me first
start off by saying that Star Trek Voyager's Future's End is one of my
favorite episodes. However, I have found a pretty big hole in the story if
you think about it too much.
When Captain Braxton comes back into the 20th centuary to bring Voyager back
to it's previous time in the 24th centuary, he says that in the 29th
centuary they can scan time much like star ships can scan space. If this is
true, then since the day the organization that Braxton works for (possibly
Starfleet) would be scanning time since it was founded for anomalies. Now,
that would mean that the future-Starfleet would see Voyager out of place.
Why is it that Captain Braxton was chosen to go back to fetch Voyager? Why
not him from 5 minutes later in his life, 5 years later in his life, or why
not someone completely different from say the 31st centuary? There are
literally over a billion times Captain Braxton could have come back to
get Voyager in his career (and that doesn't count all the other time-
agents in his life and all the ones after his life).
If you aren't following me, think of it this way: A clean stream is moving
downriver at a constant rate. Point B will serve as the point in time when
Voyager whas pulled into temproal anomaily. Point A will serve as the place
Voyager ends up, in the 20th centuary. If someone dumps a large amount of say
sludge in the water at point A, it will disperse and move further down the
river, or in this comparison, the timestream. From point A and on, you will
be able to see the sludge much like the timeship can scan time. At any other
time on this timeline/river, you will see the sludge and can trace it back to
point A, where Voyager is.
That means becuase there are people living on earth who can scan time for
anomalies from Point C (the 29th centuary) and on, they will all detect the
If anyone has any ideas as to how this works, please let me know. I find time
things to be something one person can think about for a long time and be
absolutly sure about, but hear another person and his idea just completly
