VOY #19 Cover

  • Stardate Unknown
  • Released November 2000

It is a scientific truth that the structure of the universe depends on the amount of “dark matter” contained in the cosmos. When sinister forces threaten to tamper with the very nature of reality, Captain Janeway and the crew of the U.S.S. Voyager must risk everything to restore the universal balance . . .

Years ago, near the beginning of its long journey, Voyager made contact with a brilliant Romulan scientist whose present was Voyager‘s past. Now Telek R’Mor communicates with Janeway again—to warn her of a dire plot to capture Voyager and turn its “future” technology against the Federation of yesterday. But more than just the timeline is at stake. Voyager itself may be carrying a menace deadly to all creation!

Captain Kathryn Janeway opened her mouth but was interrupted by a screeching burst from Harry Kim’s console.

The rat-a-tat sound of static followed, and she winced at the volume.

“Someone is attempting to contact us,” Kim told her, yelling to be heard over the noise.

“On screen,” Janeway shouted back.

The image of the wormhole was replaced by stratchy static. An unintelligible voice boomed. Kim worked frantically, and after a few seconds the voice began to form words, and a shape manifested on the screen.

“&mdashto the Starship Voyager. Repeat, please acknowledge if you are receiving this!”

The image solidified—dark, sleek, short hair, pale skin, a ridged brow, a noble face. The hair along Janeway’s arms and at the back of her neck lifted, as if she were seeing—and hearing—a ghost.

“Telek R’Mor,” Janeway whispered.

For she knew the voice and the visage that now appeared on the screen. They belonged to a man who was now dead—or was he?

When were they?
