7-171&172. "Endgame" **½
A 2403 Janeway leaves Commander Barclay, an unsound Tuvok, The Doctor, Captain Kim, and an angry Klingon inventor to fly 26 years into the past, introduces futuristic weaponry to the 2377 Voyager in a plan to infiltrate the Borg Queen’s nebula, and opposes the senior officers’ intent to collapse a transwarp hub that could expedite Voyager’s journey home. False labors frustrate Torres and Paris, and Seven’s knowledge of her own death undermines her romance with Chakotay. Stardate 54973.4
