Voyager encounters a spatial anomaly where a trapped ship is transmitting a distress call, but that ship is Voyager itself – in the future! Shout “warp particles” with us when Parallax goes into the Mission Log.

In this episode, we are introduced to two staples of Voyager: the stupid Neelix moment, and the “Janeway Is Always Right” mandate.
Also, we’re not gonna mention the “hole” in the event horizon of the singularity? No? OK.
Love your show, long time listener. One thing I wanted to touch upon this episode. When you were mentioning that Tom Paris got a free card to rejoin starfleet while rest of the Maquis were scrutinized. Big difference is that Tom Paris actually served his sentence and as was stated in “The Caretaker” he does this mission, he’s cut loose. Mission was done as soon as they found Tuvok.
Definitely true. He’s still a bit of an unknown quantity (though Janeway has a bit more info on him than others on the crew do). Still, she’s got to move everyone up pretty quickly for the sake of their circumstance… and the show…
Tom Paris remains me of a young cadet that got into trouble with Wesley in TNG.
Neelix explaining an event horizon when Kes asked a question – mansplaining. Janeway explaining temporal causality when Paris asked a question – no issue.
I’d say the difference is that Neelix explained it badly, but no one on the bridge of a Starfleet vessel (including the scientist Captain) bothered to correct him, so I have a hard time pointing to that as the difference.
