Back when I first started to notice “things were different,” there were several issues I had no reason to notice until they were pointed out by
other people’s information.
After finding the Mandela Effect web site I read over the articles and some I remembered, some I did not. The Star Trek’s Chakotay story line they
mention made me stop and think for a while.
I am not a Trekkie/Trekker, but I did watch that series when it was new. At the time I had a TV antenna that picked up five network stations (ABC,
CBS, NBC, Fox and PBS) and no DVR. I never bothered to use the VCR to record the series because it wasn’t that big of a deal to me at the time. I
watched it because it was just better than the other options at the time.
Soon after I got a Primestar satellite then got switched to Direct TV after a Corporate merger. Later I switched to Dish network and got a DVR. Soon
after, a network started rerunning the Voyager series and I set the DVR to grab them because I felt like I had missed something. It had been a few
years since I had seen it and I watched the episodes in order and it flowed well.
While reading the article linked above, I was remembering being curious as to why Chakotay died then returned later with no real explanation when I
first watched the series. Remembering that was the reason I gave the series a second watch I was glad that someone else pointed it out, but something
else came to mind, while I was watching the show originally a friend that worked at a Walmart had brought me a box of books that were meant to be
thrown away with the front covers removed.
Five of the books were Star Trek Voyager, and I actually read those when I was between good books. The plots in those stepped on the series in a bad
way, so I was thinking that must be where my confusion came from. According to the article there was no books with that plotline. So, went into the
attic and got a box of old books and found the Voyager books I had and gave all five a reread.
No mention of Chakotay the way I remembered the episode.
I have watched all the Star Wars movies but can not say for sure if the missing scene was there or not, though I have found many people discussing
