Re: VOY S3: Future's End, Part II

Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but here is my take on why the Temporal Authroity didn't just do some time travel stuff to prevent all this from happening. Initially I thought they could just have traveled back and fixed things up at any point or stopped it all from happening, but I have two reasons that wasn't an option.

First, the temporal explosion was a surprise in the future. They didn't see it coming as it was a result of time travel and they didn't have time to react. All their travel and scanning capability and tech was wiped out in the explosion, rendering them unable to react in time (also they were dead). The 29th century captain was the only survivor and he used his ship to briefly investigate and then traveled back to stop it as best as he could. Remember, he thought Voyager caused the problem and basically had no more information than that.

The other problem might be that looped time paradoxes don't work like the normal linear flow of time. Perhaps once started (however that happens) time flows in a circle. You can't enter (or even detect) the circle from outside and you can't escape without resolving the paradox, which must be done from within the time loop.

I like my first theory best, but really the two could be combined.
