    A well done, very well written early episode…

    Voyager discovers a wormhole. It's too small to use but they send a probe into it. The probe gets stuck but someone on the other side can access it. After some refinements, the probe serves as a communication relay and the Voyager crew make contact with a Romulan scientist. At first he is suspicious that they are Federation/Starfleet spies but eventually accepts their story about being trapped in the Delta Quadrant.

    They beam the Romulan to Voyager but soon discover he is actually from 20 years in their past. He still agrees to take their personal messages to loved ones back with him and then distribute them in his future, sometime after the date Voyager disappears. There's another hitch though. He seems to have died a few years before Voyager disappeared. There's a faint but diminished hope that the personal messages from Voyager will ever get through. This is a very fine, "can we get home" story. You know it's not going to happen and have the series end after only 6 episodes. Still you can't help but share their hope that all of this just might work.
