In 2365, the now Captain Kathryn Janeway was in command of the USS Bonestell on a six-month exploratory mission of the Beta Quadrant. In November of that year, following the mission, Janeway went before a review board consisting of Admiral Finnegan along with Admiral Owen Paris and Admiral Alynna Nechayev.
