Pointless!
 
I think everyone realises by now, thanks to the excellent documentary "Star Trek Voyager" that Amelia was actually kidnapped by aliens called Priori and taken to the 24th century. You may be interested to know that Amelia stayed with the colonists in the Delta quadrant, rather than heading back to Earth with the star ship Voyager.

They think they found them on a remote island in the Pacific. There are signs that it is the aircraft and their remains. They also took radio reports from US naval ships in the area at the time as further evidence that it is likely where they ended up.

They think they landed there as a result of insufficient fuel uplift at the last airport.

However, after reading this:

Maybe both are right, and both are wrong. Right in that she crashed/landed near an island, wrong that they maybe survived.

Best regards,
Vulcan.

I was jokingly agreeing with you!

Best regards,
