SCARLETT POMERS HAND DRAWN CHRISTMAS CARD AN HAND SIGNED BY THIS ACTRESS WHO PLAYED KYRA IN THE TV SHOW REBA AND PLAYED NAOMI WILDMAN IN STAR TREK VOYAGER. Scarlett Pomers (born November 28, 1988) is a former American actress and singer-songwriter. Her debut EP, titled Insane, was released January 7, 2010. Scarlett Noel Pomers was a fan of hard rock from an early age.
She began singing and guitar lessons as a child.  When she was three years old, an agent at a local shopping mall suggested to her mother Michelle that Scarlett get into the acting business.Scarlett began doing small jobs until they found an agent they both liked. Pomers made her acting debut at the age of three in Michael Jackson's music video, "Heal the World" (1992). She then began doing commercials and has filmed over three dozen to date. She has also starred in a number of television shows, including Judging Amy, That's Life, and Touched by an Angel. Pomers was five years old when she made her debut on the silver screen in The Baby-Sitters Club.
She also appeared in Slappy and the Stinkers, Happy, Texas, Erin Brockovich, and TV-movie Geppetto, as well as appearing on the Disney Channel film, A Ring of Endless Light. Pomers' first major role began in 1998 as Naomi Wildman on the UPN sci-fi program Star Trek: Voyager. She appeared in 17 episodes over three years and won a Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Drama Series: Supporting Young Actress. She then joined the cast of the WB series Reba, playing Kyra Hart, the middle child of the titular character.Pomers stayed with the show until it ended in 2007. Pomers has also appeared as a judge for PAX TV's 2004-05 series America's Most Talented Kids. In 2014 Pomers stated she was "pretty much [done]" with acting save for some voiceover work, and was making a career in photography and jewelry design. In an interview with Modern Guitars Magazine, they asked Pomers to talk about how she and her band got together.
She replied, I've been singing since I was about six-years-old and I was supposed to finish an album last year when I was on hiatus from Reba, but I dislocated my kneecap for the third time and had to have surgery to keep it from happening again. During my four month recovery, I was pretty unhappy that I couldn't finish working with the writers and producers I was scheduled to do the album with. So by the fourth month I was getting around in my brace and making progress in my physical therapy and my mom said I could put a band together and rehearse sitting down until the brace came off. By that time maybe we could do a show.What I didn't know was how much fun it would be and now it has become the most amazing experience I've ever had! All of my guys love classic rock and they are really talented and fun to work with. As a singer, Pomers founded the band SCARLETT, sometimes known as the "Scarlett Pomers Band, " which played at venues including the Knitting Factory, House of Blues, Club One-Seven, The Roxy, and the Whisky a Go Go. Pomers' debut EP, Insane, was released on January 7, 2010, through her official website, CDbaby. The album consists of five tracks. Pomers covered an AC/DC classic, "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock'n' Roll)", in a tribute album to the band titled Rock & Roll Train: A Millennium Tribute To AC/DC. It was released December 10, 2010 on iTunes. Her musical projects at the time included industrial metal and writing songs for the mandolin, which she had learnt to play. In late 2005, Pomers checked into an anorexia nervosa treatment facility.
The 5 ft 2 in (157 cm) actress' weight had dropped to 73 pounds (33 kg) and she was exercising as much as six hours per day. Scarlett's character, Kyra, was absent from most of the fifth season of Reba, having only appeared in two episodes out of twenty-two. Her efforts led Teen People magazine to name her one of the 20 teens who will change the world. Pomers, who is a vegetarian, began practicing Kundalini yoga in June 2006 after reading a book about Golden Bridge studio director Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, and earned her teaching certificate in the practice.Yoga always made me feel really good about myself. It was the final step of letting go of the demon.
Her eating disorder was referenced in the first episode of season six. Upon entering the set to a thunderous round of applause in Season 6, episode 1 (after being absent for most of season 5) Reba asked her character Kyra Where have you been? " to which Kyra replies, "I went to get something to eat.
" Later in the same episode, she walks towards the kitchen when Van (Steve Howey) asks, "Where are you going? " She responds, "Just gonna go grab something to eat. " Van replies "See you next year. Children of a Laughing God.

Works well with animals-no allergies, valid passport. The actress, who played Naomi Wildman in 16 episodes of Star Trek: Voyager and went on to a series-regular role on the long-running sitcom Reba, is 25 years old now and makes her living as a jewelry designer and photographer.She no longer acts, plays music mostly for herself these days and is quite healthy, having overcome the anorexia that threatened to derail her life and career as a teenager. Here's what she had to say. Com: For much of your time on the show you were very much like Naomi, the only kid amongst a lot of adults. I've never been a shy person, especially as a kid. I'm pretty outgoing and friendly to people.
When you work as a child actor you're around adults all the time, whether it's a show, a movie or a commercial. And even if there are a lot of kid actors in the scenes with you, it's all adults around the set. So everybody has to interact with everybody, from the director to the craft service people to the lighting guys. It helps to be friendly and be cool to everybody because you're going to be with them a lot of the time.
Plus, they're the ones who make you look good. So it's always good to make friends with the lighting people and the grips and the people who build the sets.And they work the hardest, too. They're there before anybody else setting things up in the morning and they're there when everyone else is done, still working five hours after you've left. So I always appreciated everybody who worked around me because without everyone else it's just people standing there talking. Of the 16 episodes you did, was there one episode or even a single scene that still stands out to you all these years later? SP: It's a scene from Once Upon a Time.
Naomi finds out that this has happened and she's mad at Neelix for not telling her this is going on. And there's a scene after that where I'm in the holodeck and Neelix comes to find me and talk to me, and in the scene, Neelix is talking about how he lost his family. Ethan Phillips is one of the funniest dudes on the planet, but he's such a great actor, too, and he didn't get too many chances to show just how good a dramatic actor he was on that show because he was kind of the quirky, funny Neelix. But he was really, really good in that scene, and I remember that it was hard not to cry while we were doing that scene because he was so emotional and it was so real.Switching gears entirely, post-Trek and during your run on Reba, you battled anorexia. You went public with your struggle and your recovery. Are we right in guessing that you heard from a lot of young people who were very appreciative of you sharing your story? And how are you now? SP: I'm probably the healthiest I've ever been in my life, actually. Anorexia is a mental illness. It's something that you carry the effects of with you for the rest of your life, like with any mental illness or any unstable period of your life that you go through.
It's one of those things where I don't know what my life would have been like if it hadn't happened as well. But definitely, the best thing that could have come out of that was being able to help other women - and men. Eating disorders, they affect men, too. So it was really incredible, actually, to see how many people reached out to me and thanked me, and still do to this day. What are you up to these days?SP: I'm a photographer, first of all. I do mostly fashion stuff, but I also shoot bands.
I shoot their promo pictures and stuff like that, and a little bit of concerts, too. I don't do concert photography as much as I used to because it's not as fun, not as creative. With fashion and other kinds of shoots, I can be a little more creative and have more say on the concepts whatnot. I also dig jewelry and I have an online store called The Mermaid's Lure. It's mostly pieces with different kinds of stones and crystals.Right now, I'm working on an industrial metal project with my best friend. I also started learning how to play mandolin a couple of years ago, so I'm writing songs for that, too, now, which has been great fun. So are you done with acting? I've been doing some voiceover work here and there, but for the most part I'm focused on the music and photography. That keeps me busy and happy, and I can make enough of a living doing it. You'll be in Las Vegas for Creation Entertainment's big Trek event. How often do you do conventions and how big a kick do you get out of meeting the fans?
POMERS: I think the last one I did was also the one in Vegas, and I want to say that was 2010 or 2011. Honestly, the Star Trek fans are the best fans ever. I know everybody says that and I've said it a million times, too, but it's true. I've never met a nicer, more-generous and just really amazing group of fans than the Star Trek fans. I've never had a boring or bad experience going to one of these conventions.
Plus it's pretty cool to be in Vegas. You can hang out and party afterward, which is always a good time. We saw you at that convention, actually. We happened to be there when you and Jeri Ryan ran into each other, and it was like witnessing a mother and daughter reunion.
POMERS: Yeah, it was so great to see her. Jeri's been working her ass off since Star Trek and having success.
She's a really, really cool lady, just very smart and comfortable and a strong actress. When I was on Star Trek, she and Kate Mulgrew just totally owned that show. It was amazing when they stepped on set. They just got their work done and were role models for me growing up. Scarlett Pomers moves among media like a cat on the prowl.Not satisfied to keep herself wrapped in any single comfort zone, the young sultry red-headed beauty dives into feature films, television series and recently launched a music career. Lately, Pomers and her band have been getting rave reviews around the L.
Kicking off her acting career at the age of 3, Scarlett won a spot in Michael Jackson's Heal the World Video, before landing roles in such movies as Mighty Joe Young and blockbuster Erin Brockovich. A long list of credits followed including the character of Naomi Wildman, the hybrid daughter of a Ktarian father and a human mother, on Star Trek: Voyager. Scarlett not only totes a Gibson Flying V that she was given for her 16th birthday, but also a black Les Paul Standard Ebony, a gift from none other than the Gibson Guitar Company. Pomers' voice has a maturity beyond her years, offering up the stand and deliver quality of Madonna in her Middle Eastern dirge, "Insane".Many of Pomers' songs convey the angular musings, angst and attitude sure to entertain a new generation. Playing in the Los Angeles area, Pomers and crew have been getting gallons of good ink in the local press and she's been offered residencies at B. King's, The Knitting Factory, and The Roxy. Most people know you as Kyra Hart, Reba McEntire's daughter on the hit comedy, Reba, but we understand you're a bit of a rock'n' roller? Scarlett Pomers: Music has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. My uncle had a rock band for 15 years and even when I could barely sit up he would sit in front of me playing his guitar and singing the songs he wrote. I enjoy so many different styles of music, but when I was around ten, I started to really listen to the classic rock stations. I just fell in love with the amazing music that came out of the'60s,'70s and'80s. I got my first guitar (an acoustic Fender), for my 13th birthday. I started taking lessons with a local teacher and like every kid, I got bored with just practicing the usual chords and scales. I wanted to play songs, so I added another teacher and started learning classic rock songs. That's when I got excited about the instrument. A year later, I got my first electric guitar. I still take lessons every week and try to practice every day.
Who are your major musical influences? SP: My mom introduced me to Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac. My brother played Metallica for me and I was hooked. I love Middle Eastern music and Spanish guitar. My favorite female artists start with Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin, Sarah Brightman, Heart, Pat Benataur, Amy Lee of Evanescence and Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil.
Tell us about your band and how you got together. SP: I've been singing since I was about six-years-old and I was supposed to finish an album last year when I was on hiatus from REBA, but I dislocated my kneecap for the third time and had to have surgery to keep it from happening again. We understand that Gibson Guitars is recognizing you in a special way.SP: They've been good enough to support my band and me, and they gave me my first Les Paul guitar. It's gorgeous and I also got a Flying V for my 16th birthday last year. How do you go about writing your songs? Do you start with lyrics and come up with the music or do you just start strumming and the lyrics "arrive"?
SP: Well, I'm always writing, whether it's journals, short stories, or poetry. When I started pursuing my music career, I began using my poetry for song lyrics. Most of the time, when I begin a song, I have the lyrics, or a concept in my head and try to put it to music. Sometimes it's the other way around, but many times I'll just be riding in the car and a whole song will come to me, then I have to stop and write it all down. When playing on stage is there any acting going on or are you in full music mode?SP: As a musician, I'm expressing my real self on stage, but there's definitely a little acting involved, because if the song is sad or angry, you really have to channel the energy and emotions that inspired you to write it in the first place. When I'm performing, I'd like to think of it more as an embellishment than as an act, though. How did you get started in acting and at what point did you figure out that you had musical talent? SP: My mom put me into acting when I was 3, because I was a really wild little kid. I could walk and talk from a really early age, and wasn't afraid of anyone!
Commercial agents love little kids like that. When I got older, I would bring weird beetles and plastic shrunken heads into auditions.
I guess the casting people thought I was pretty quirky. I started taking singing lessons when I was about six, but wasn't really bitten by the music bug until I was about 11 or 12. I just woke up one day and told my mom, "I don't think we're doing enough to pursue my music career". I think she was a little freaked out, but ever since, we've been working on my music. "The Right Decision, Right Now" -- tell us how you became involved in the no smoking campaign.
SP: I have always been anti-smoking. My grandfather died of lung cancer when I was 6-years-old. He was a really cool guy and I wish he was still around so I could have gotten to know him. He was a writer and loved the beach like me. I love doing charity work and the cause is one I stand behind completely, so it seemed like the perfect campaign to be a part of.What new guitar or music projects are you working on now -- any more planned? SP: Currently, I'm in the studio working on an album with songwriting and producing team, The Wizardz.
We are shooting for an early fall completion date. Are you more of a strummer or a lead guitarist?
SP: I play rhythm with my band, in our live shows. I leave the fancy stuff to my guys.
They love to show off on their solos and I'm really proud of them. Playing the guitar has made it so much easier to write my own songs. I used to write only lyrics, now I contribute to the melodies as well. SP: In my live show I like to use my Cherry Gibson Flying V.
It was the only thing I wanted for my 16th birthday. I also have a Les Paul Ebony Standard that I received from the Gibson Company. I love it and it sounds incredible.For one of my songs called, Turn the Light On, I use a one-of-a-kind Mirrorball Diablo made by a company called Minarik Guitars. I also own a Minarik Inferno. They sound amazing and are the sexiest looking guitars I've ever seen! For the acoustic songs in my live show, I use a gorgeous Ibanez that was given to me by everyone I work with on REBA. The guitar I treasure the most however, I've never played. It's autographed by every member of Fleetwood Mac. My mom gave it to me for Christmas and I'm afraid to touch it! I think I'll just frame it. I love all of my guitars for different reasons and I wish more schools offered kids the chance to learn to play. Music has been the best outlet in my life and I don't know what I'd do without it. Who are your favorite guitarists? SP: Some of my favorite guitar players are the late Dimebag Darrell, Nancy Wilson, Kirk Hammett, and Jimmy Page. One of the most amazing performances I've ever seen is Jimmy Page playing his guitar with a bow on the Led Zeppelin DVD. It blows my mind every time! If you could be in any band -- past or future groups -- which would it be and why? They're my favorite band and I'd love to be the only female member! Any songs in your iPod or CD player that you're playing over and over again?
SP: Right now I'm into a lot of Latin music. I have a Spanish guitar CD, the new Shakira Spanish language CD and Los Lonely Boys Live CD that I play continuously.
You're a bit of a full force gale when it comes to work -- what drives you to succeed? SP: I love what I do, and I go after everything 100%. I want to be the best I can at everything I do. I've been very fortunate in my career already, but I know luck isn't enough, you have to be totally committed and not afraid to make sacrifices to succeed.

Star Trek: Voyager is an American science fiction television series created by Rick Berman, Michael Piller, and Jeri Taylor.
It originally aired from January 16, 1995, to May 23, 2001, on UPN, lasting for 172 episodes over seven seasons. It is the fifth series in the Star Trek franchise. Set in the 24th century, when Earth is part of a United Federation of Planets, it follows the adventures of the Starfleet vessel USS Voyager as it attempts to return home to the Alpha Quadrant after being stranded in the Delta Quadrant on the far side of the Milky Way galaxy. Paramount Pictures commissioned the series following the termination of Star Trek: The Next Generation to accompany the ongoing Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.They wanted it to help launch UPN, their newly established network. Berman, Piller, and Taylor devised the series to chronologically overlap with Deep Space Nine and to maintain thematic continuity with elements that had been introduced in The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine.
The complex relationship between Starfleet and ex-Federation colonists known as the Maquis was one such element and a persistent central theme. Voyager was the first Star Trek series to feature a female commanding officer, Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), as the lead character. Berman served as head executive producer in charge of the overall production, assisted by a series of executive producers: Piller, Taylor, Brannon Braga, and Kenneth Biller. Set in a different part of the galaxy from preceding Star Trek shows, Voyager gave the series' writers space to introduce new alien species as recurring characters, namely the Kazon, Vidiians, Hirogen, and Species 8472. During the later seasons, the Borg-a species created for The Next Generation-were introduced as the main antagonists.During Voyager's run, various episode novelizations and tie-in video games were produced; after it ended, various novels continued the series' narrative. As Star Trek: The Next Generation ended, Paramount Pictures wanted to continue to have a second Star Trek TV series to accompany Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
The studio also planned to start a new television network, and wanted the new series to help it succeed.  This was reminiscent of Paramount's earlier plans to launch its own network by showcasing Star Trek: Phase II in 1977. Initial work on Star Trek: Voyager began in 1993, when the seventh and final season of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the second season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine were in production.
Seeds for Voyager's backstory, including the development of the Maquis, were placed in several The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine episodes. Voyager was shot on the stages The Next Generation had used, and where the Voyager pilot "Caretaker" was shot in September 1994. Costume designer Robert Blackman decided that the uniforms of Voyager's crew would be the same as those on Deep Space Nine. Star Trek: Voyager was the first Star Trek series to use computer-generated imagery (CGI), rather than models, for exterior space shots.  Babylon 5 and seaQuest DSV had previously used CGI to avoid the expense of models, but the Star Trek television department continued using models because they felt they were more realistic.This changed when Voyager went fully CGI for certain types of shots midway through season three (late 1996).  Foundation Imaging was the studio responsible for special effects during Babylon 5's first three seasons. Season three's "The Swarm" was the first episode to use Foundation's effects exclusively. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine began using Foundation Imaging in conjunction with Digital Muse in season six. In its later seasons, Voyager featured visual effects from Foundation Imaging and Digital Muse.
The digital effects were produced at standard television resolution and some have speculated that it cannot be re-released in HD format without re-creating the special effects.  However, Enterprise has been released in HD, but the special effects were rendered in 480p and upscaled. Of Star Trek: Voyager composed by Jerry Goldsmith. Unlike The Next Generation, where composer Jerry Goldsmith's theme from Star Trek: The Motion Picture was reused, Goldsmith composed and conducted an entirely new main theme for Voyager. As done with The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, a soundtrack album of the series' pilot episode "Caretaker" and a CD single containing three variations of the main theme were released by Crescendo Records in 1995 between seasons one and two. In 1996, the theme was also released as piano solo songbook. In 2017, La-La Land Records issued Star Trek: Voyager Collection, Volume 1, a four-disc limited-edition release containing Goldsmith's theme music and tracks from Jay Chattaway's "Rise", "Night", the two-parter "Equinox", "Pathfinder", "Spirit Folk", "The Haunting of Deck Twelve", "Shattered", "The Void", and the two-parter "Scorpion"; Dennis McCarthy's "The 37's", the two-parter "Basics", "The Q and the Gray", "Concerning Flight", "Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy", and the two-parters "Workforce" and "Year of Hell"; David Bell's "Dark Frontier"; and Paul Baillargeon's "Lifesigns".
In 2020, Newsweek magazine said that the Voyager theme by Goldsmith, was the best of all Star Trek television series' themes. Voyager recaptures some of the spacey ethereality of Courage's original vocal melody, while adding a deep space resonance that evoked the series' lost explorers, far from home among uncharted stars.
Robert Picardo, Roxann Dawson, Ethan Phillips, Tim Russ at a Voyager panel in 2009; they played the roles of The Doctor, B'Elanna Torres, Neelix, and Tuvok, respectively. In August 2015, the main cast members (except Jennifer Lien, who retired from acting in 2002) appeared together onstage in Las Vegas for the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: Voyager at the 2015 Las Vegas Star Trek convention.Robert Duncan McNeill (Paris) and Roxann Dawson (Torres) went on to direct episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise, while Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, and Andrew Robinson (Garak of Deep Space Nine) all directed episodes of Star Trek: Voyager.  Star Trek actors directing has been popular in this franchise, pioneered by Leonard Nimoy (famous for playing Spock in The Original Series), who got into directing and had this job for the third and fourth Star Trek theatrical films. The sickbay set of USS Voyager was also used as the Enterprise-E sickbay in the films Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: Insurrection. Additionally, the Voyager ready room and the engineering set were also used as rooms aboard the Enterprise-E in Insurrection.
Production of episodes ran from June/July to March/April each year, with one episode typically taking about 7 days to shoot.  The pilot (first) episode, "Caretaker" took 31 days to shoot and was one of the most expensive television pilots shot at the time. See also: List of Star Trek: Voyager episodes. An artistic rendition of the Milky Way galaxy, overlaid with the fictional quadrant system of the Star Trek universe and the location of certain species.
Voyager had to make its way from above where the Kazon species is located back to Earth; this journey is a major plot element in the series. Jeri Ryan, appearing at the Creation Star Trek convention in 2010; she joined the cast in Season 4 of the show, as the ex-Borg character Seven of Nine. In the pilot episode, "Caretaker", USS Voyager departs the Deep Space Nine space station on a mission into the treacherous Badlands. The wave was not a natural phenomenon. In fact, it was used by an alien entity known as the Caretaker to pull Voyager into the Delta Quadrant.The Caretaker is responsible for the continued care of the Ocampa, a race of aliens native to the Delta Quadrant, and has been abducting other species from around the galaxy in an effort to find a successor. Chakotay, leader of the Maquis group, becomes Voyager's first officer.
B'Elanna Torres, a half-human/half-Klingon Maquis, becomes chief engineer. Due to its great distance from Federation space, the Delta Quadrant is unexplored by Starfleet, and Voyager is truly going where no human has gone before.
As they set out on their projected 75-year journey home, the crew passes through regions belonging to various species: the barbaric and belligerent Kazon; the organ-harvesting, disease-ravaged Vidiians; the nomadic hunter race the Hirogen; the fearsome Species 8472 from fluidic space; and most notably the Borg, whose home is the Delta Quadrant, so that Voyager has to move through large areas of Borg-controlled space in later seasons. They also encounter perilous natural phenomena, a nebulous area called the Nekrit Expanse ("Fair Trade", third season), a large area of empty space called the Void ("Night", fifth season), wormholes, dangerous nebulae and other anomalies. Voyager is the third Star Trek series to feature Q, an omnipotent alien-and the second on a recurring basis, as Q made only one appearance on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Starfleet Command learns of Voyager's survival when the crew discovers an ancient interstellar communications network, claimed by the Hirogen, into which they can tap. This relay network is later disabled, but due to the efforts of Earth-based Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, Starfleet eventually establishes regular contact in the season-six episode "Pathfinder", using a communications array and micro-wormhole technology.
As the series progresses, Seven begins to regain her humanity with the ongoing help of Captain Janeway, who shows her that emotions, friendship, love, and caring are more important than the sterile "perfection" the Borg espouse. The Doctor also becomes more human-like, due in part to a mobile holo-emitter the crew obtains in the third season which allows the Doctor to leave the confines of sickbay.
He discovers his love of music and art, which he demonstrates in the episode "Virtuoso". In the sixth season, the crew discovers a group of adolescent aliens assimilated by the Borg, but prematurely released from their maturation chambers due to a malfunction on their Borg cube. As he did with Seven of Nine, the Doctor rehumanizes the children; Azan, Rebi and Mezoti, three of them eventually find a new adoptive home while the fourth, Icheb, chooses to stay aboard Voyager. Life for the Voyager crew evolves during their long journey. Traitors Seska and Michael Jonas are uncovered in the early months ("State of Flux", "Investigations"); loyal crew members are lost late in the journey; and other wayward Starfleet officers are integrated into the crew.Early in the seventh season, Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres marry after a long courtship, and Torres gives birth to their child, Miral Paris, in the series finale. Over the course of the series, the Voyager crew finds various ways to reduce their 75-year journey by up to five decades (barring any other delays they may encounter): shortcuts, in the episodes "Year of Hell", "Night" and "Q2"; technology boosts in "The Voyager Conspiracy", "Dark Frontier", "Timeless" and "Hope and Fear"; a subspace corridor in "Dragon's Teeth"; and a mind-powered push from a powerful former shipmate in "The Gift". Several other trip-shortening attempts are unsuccessful, as seen in the episodes "Eye of the Needle", "Prime Factors", "Future's End", "Course: Oblivion", and "Inside Man".
After traveling for seven years, a current (yet returning) shipmate helps instigate a series of complex efforts which shortens the remainder of the journey to a few minutes in the series finale, "Endgame".
