Memorable quotes[]

"All aboard the HMS Protostar."

- Chakotay, as the Protostar sets sail

"Would you look at that. Adreek was right. She can still fly!"
"We've got impulse and warp."
"And Janeway."
"Glad to see my faith was well-placed. Great work everyone."

- Chakotay, Jankom, Rok, and Hologram Janeway, after the Protostar launches

"Clearly, I missed some action."
"Things could've gone really bad. But someone showed us the ropes."
"Let's just say, they know how to run their own ship."
"Our ship. And we just went where we were needed most."

- Hologram Janeway, Rok, Chakotay, and Dal

"Communications are spotty, but I've detected Voyager's position three thousand light years away."
"That'll take forever."
"The proto-drive is powered by a miniature star of exotic matter, which we do not have."
"I'm not worried. We just rebuilt a starship. So, let's go build a star."

- Hologram Janeway, Rok, Maj'el, and Dal, discussing the crew's next seemingly impossible task
