"Non Sequitur" is the 21st episode of Star Trek: Voyager, the fifth episode in the second season.

Plot

The episode starts with Harry Kim aboard a shuttlecraft as it is shaking violently. As he contacts Voyager, Captain Janeway attempts to beam him out, and the screen fades white. Kim awakens on Earth, in 24th Century[clarification needed] San Francisco next to his girlfriend, Libby, whom he was eager to get back to. Harry vividly retains all of his memories of his time in Voyager, yet there is no evidence he was ever aboard. His life is entirely different from what he remembers. Kim finds he works at the shuttlecraft development center at Starfleet Headquarters and learns he has designed a new type of runabout, USS Yellowstone. After he leaves a meeting with staff Admirals because of "sickness", he looks for any explanation for his current situation. Harry uses his knowledge of Voyager's security codes to obtain classified information about Voyager. Kim realizes he has somehow swapped places with his good friend Daniel Byrd. While skimming through the crew manifest, Kim notices Tom Paris is not listed as part of Voyager's crew either. He learns Paris now lives a life of crime in Marseilles, France, where he goes to try to enlist Paris' help to figure out what happened, but an altercation with Paris forces him to leave empty-handed. Paris tells Kim he got into a fight with a Ferengi on DS9 prior to the ship leaving, and the security chief threw him in the brig. (This altercation happened between Quark and Kim in the pilot).

Upon his return to San Francisco, Kim is apprehended by Security and taken to Starfleet Headquarters for questioning concerning his unauthorized access to restricted files using the Voyager's security codes, as well as his associations with Paris (a former Maquis), and is thought to be a Maquis spy. He is fitted with a security anklet to track his movements, and released. It turns out a shuttlecraft accident caused Kim to fall into a time-stream and enter a timeline where he was never a part of Voyager' crew. A time-stream alien has been sent to watch over Harry to help guide him through the "transition". He reluctantly gives him information on where the timestream is and tells him that if he recreates the conditions of the accident precisely and flies into the timestream, he might get back to his own reality, but there is considerable risk. Harry tries to tamper with his security anklet, but unfortunately sets off the tampering alarm which alerts Starfleet. Paris comes to Kim's aid and bails him out of a tight situation. They transport to Starfleet Headquarters and steal the Yellowstone.

Kim recreates everything he can remember, but when he passes through the coordinates of the timestream, nothing happens. He suddenly remembers there was also an emergency beamout attempted by Captain Janeway before the accident. Kim has Paris transport him off the ship as they hit the timestream, just as Yellowstone is destroyed in the alternate timeline. Immediately he is returned to his own reality and is happy to find Paris is also aboard, and everything is as he remembers it.

Production

In this episode, Harry Kim lives in apartment 4-G, G being the seventh letter of the alphabet. The intentionality of this reference to 47 was confirmed by Brannon Braga, the writer of that episode [1]

The scene in which Kim and Paris pilot the Yellowstone out of space dock uses the space doors animation from the TNG episode, Relics.
