Stardate not given: “Grandma Kes” awakens surrounded by people who claim they are her family, but whom she doesn’t recognize. She fades into unconsciousness and reawakens at a slightly earlier time in her life. Although she remembers the experience, it apparently hasn’t happened yet for the rest of the crew. Confused and frightened, Kes continues to experience the morilogium – the final phase of the Ocampan lifespan – as well as the temporal effects of life-extension treatments in the Doctor’s experimental bio-temporal chamber. As the temporal effects grow more and more out of control, Kes regresses through her entire life, seeing a 9-year history of Voyager in reverse as she struggles to understand her situation and how to stop what is happening to her.
