Stardate Unknown
A Starfleet ship, the Prometheus, is detected in the Alpha Quadrant, thousands of light years away. After several message attempts fail, Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) rigs a network of transceivers that enable The Doctor (Robert Picardo) to be transported to the ship to that he can let Starfleet know that the U.S.S. Voyager and her crew are still alive. On board, The Doctor discovers that the vessel is an experimental Starfleet prototype with secret advanced technology, including the emergency medical hologram EMH-2 (Andy Dick), an upgraded - though highly unstable - version of The Doctor's original program.

Stardate 51501.4
Thanks to the success of The Doctor's previous mission, the U.S.S. Voyager has at last made contact with Starfleet Command by using a far-flung array of alien relay modules to communicate with Earth and let them know that they are, indeed, alive - although many light years away.

Miraculously, the ship begins receiving messages, transmitted across the vast distances over the same relay system, from relieved family and friends back home. The U.S.S. Voyager's crew is elated to finally hear from loved ones after so many years. However, for Captains Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) and others, their joy is tempered by bittersweet news.

Many messages are blocked inside one of the array modules. The U.S.S. Voyager proceeds to the alien craft to attempt retrieval of the remaining transmissions. Tuvok (Tim Russ) and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) are sent out on a shuttle to try and increase the stability of the download link. During the mission, they are captured, beamed aboard an alien vessel and trussed-up like animals as a rude introduction to the Hirogen, a hostile, alien race of hunters. Living for the thrill of the hunt, the Hirogens have targeted the U.S.S. Voyager's crew as prey in the latest game.

Stardate 51652.3
The U.S.S. Voyager encounters a Hirogen ship, adrift, with a critically wounded Hirogen hunter on board. Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) orders that the alien be beamed into the U.S.S. Voyager's sickbay, despite Seven of Nine's (Jeri Ryan) warnings that the formidable Hirogen would regard the crew as no more than prey to be hunted and killed. Janeway disavows her concern and brings the Hirogen on board. His presence brings even greater danger when the creature that he has been hunting across space - species 8472, lethal even to the Borg - boards the U.S.S. Voyager.
