This story has already been written. Vgr will send out signals while broken on an alien planet, and Kirk and crew will investigate this "god" only to discover it was Voyager 1

No. The idea has always been to keep going and explore more about the boundary between our solar system and the rest of our galaxy. It will keep doing so even after it runs out of "gas."


Yeah but can it communicate without "juice"?


Sort of. It will keep going for a few years before 2025 with enough power left to send signals, but not to run its main scientific instruments.


They did not give it solar panels? It could communicate forever.


Even solar panels have a lifespan.

Solar panel technology barely existed in 1977.


But it will solve all our problems in 2013

It's amazing what we can do with technology in the span of only a few decades, right?

BTW: Trap thread's not fair when you're listed by name in the very first post!

I never thought this thread was a trap but I'm offended in that I think it is biased towards Astrophysicists. :cry:
