Well, it wasn't strictly necessary, since slipstream drive means that Voyager
could return to the Federation in a matter of days if needed and Barclay could've been dropped off the old-fashioned way. But silly? I don't know about that. Given the existence of long-range subspace transmission methods like the beacons laid by the Voyager
fleet and like Project Pathfinder, it doesn't seem out of the question that they could be adapted for carrying a transporter signal.
