January 2000Michael Kukielka of Michigan is the winner of the 3?Next Generation?CD Boxed Set. He knew the Temporal Field Frequency of 1.47 was from the?Voyager?episodes?Before and After?and subsequently?Year of Hell.
1.47 is the temporal field frequency of the Krenim chroniton torpedo. During the year of hell, the crew of?Voyager?is infected by chroniton particles. Five years after the events in?Year of Hell, the Doctor attempts to develop a procedure to extend Kes’ lifespan. The experiment activates dormant chroniton particles in Kes’ body throwing her out of temporal sync. (laopinion.com) Once Kes has provided the temporal variance of 1.47, B’Elanna devises a plan to purge the chronitons out of Kes’ body using anti-chronitons. The procedure is successful.
The frequency of 1.47 microseconds was also mentioned in?Year of Hell?as Seven of Nine scanned a undetonated torpedo stuck in the hull before it exploded in Tuvok’s face. The frequency was used to develop a shielding technology so that?Voyager?could protect themselves from the torpedos and changes in the timeline.
It should be noted that Joe Menosky is responsible for putting the 47 in 1.47. He tries to fit it in where ever he can on the show. The tradition goes back to?The Next Generation.
