- Communications between Voyager and the Alpha Quadrant improve when real-time communication is made possible. (VOY: "Author, Author")

- Seven of Nine and Chakotay begin dating. (VOY: "Endgame")
- Voyager detects high levels of neutrino emissions inside a nebula in the Delta Quadrant. A large Borg presence is found inside and the crew initially avoids it. (VOY: "Endgame")

- One of six Borg Transwarp Hubs is destroyed by the crew of the USS Voyager during her successful return trip home. The future Admiral Janeway remains in the Delta Quadrant to introduce a neurolytic pathogen into the Collective.

- Given that "Endgame" takes place sometime after "Homestead" (which in turn takes place on the 315th anniversary of First Contact), and taking Seven of Nine's statement in the former episode that the events of "Human Error" take place three months previously, we can conclude that the episodes from "Human Error" to "Endgame" take place in this year.
