Stardate: Unknown Back on Earth, Lt. Barclay, who has been obsessed with finding a way to communicate with Voyager, thinks he has found the answer. He thinks that by directing a tachyon beam toward a pulsar, a wormhole might be established which would allow for two way communication with Voyager. However, no one else believes it will work. Barclay decides to take matters into his own hands.
While chasing a renegade Maquis ship in the Badlands, the USS Voyager and the Maquis ship they are chasing are pulled into a vortex, which sends them instantly to the Delta Quadrant. However, after the destruction of the device that transported them to the Delta Quadrant, the crew of Voyager and the crew of the Maquis ship must join together to fight their way back to their home in the Alpha quadrant, which is many years away. They will meet many foes and many obstacles along the way, but they will also bond as a crew, between those of the Maquis and those of Starfleet.
