    Recently in The Body Electric a character mentions that Voyager 6 traveled a 100,000 years into the past.
    But I don't know on what information is this statement based on.

    Is it mentioned somewhere as to in what era the probe reappeared after leaving Earth?
    No just a by the way statement, but something more "feasible" - like the Word of God/Author...

    It's from the novel Ex Machina, I believe. Or possibly Rodenberry's novelization of TMP.

    And "DTI: Forgotten History".

    Not that Memory Beta is the "Word of God", but it does list the titles of novels that have referenced Voyager 6.

    Well yes, but I went over them I cannot seem to find a concrete reference.
    It may be that I overlooked it, so I asked here.

    It is quite possible that The Body Electric is the first to give a time reference, but at the same time it could have been said in some magazine or so...

    Does nobody who recently read the books remembers it being said somewhere?
