Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki
This article is about the short story. You may be looking for personal log.


After leaving the Kyrian-Vaskan Union, the Doctor's backup copy starts a personal log to recount his multi-year journey to the Alpha Quadrant. 26 Terran years into the trip, a the sphere of the Nouar, the Doctor encounters another copy of himself, and learns that more than one backup copy have set off on their journey from the KVU. While one Doctor remains to help the Nouar, the other moves on.

In the 31st year of the journey, the Doctor - perhaps another copy - starts recording a personal log and is filled with anticipation about crossing the border between the Alpha and Delta Quadrants in a few hours.
