** This requires a little bit more clarification. There are actually three timelines involved. The original timeline [[spoiler:sent a device to convince Christopher Columbus to travel to the New World instead of leading a final, victorious crusade to capture Jerusalem for Christianity]] creating the second timeline. This second timeline [[spoiler:(which is supposed to be our own but TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture) sends actual people back in order to directly influence events to produce the third when it becomes clear the planet will shortly be unable to sustain any human life (the rain forests are GONE and not coming back while what farmable land is left is about to give out for good). The people of the 15th century wouldn't be able to understand what was going on, so the time travellers had their timeline's history etched directly onto their skulls so that future archaeologists could find it and know the sacrifices that they had made.]]

** A version in ''Voyager''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s "Fury" where Kes returns, determined to punish the crew for taking her from her homeworld, which results in her becoming a super-powered outcast at the end of her lifespan (Ocampans live for 9 years). She uses the ship's warp core to make herself appear younger and {{Time Travel}}s into the past. Her scheme is foiled, and she is killed. Determined to break the loop, Janeway has the Kes of the past record a message for herself. When the loop comes around again and Kes once again boards the ship, Janeway plays the message to her, convincing her to stop.
