Re: "Year of Hell" Question
"Guess who's coming to dinner..." indeed!
I doubt escape pods have the resources to use temporal shielding given that, AFAIA, they don't even have the ability to generate standard shields.
Any poor saps that had temporal shielding active at the time Janeway rammed the timeship are probably stuck in the DQ for the rest of their lives.
I like to think that it isn't the timeship changing everything else, but rather that each time it uses its weapon it jumps to an alternate timeline.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
