Five years of travel by a ship operated by the Hirogen, a nomadic people.

A nomad or a drifter was an individual who did not live in one area exclusively, but traveled often. As a result, they were able to hear rumors and news that others did not. Certain races were also nomadic.

The first Qin dynasty emperor connected the Great Wall of China together to prevent northern nomads from attacking. (VOY: "11:59")

In 2371, Odo informed Quark that, contrary to his belief, Kozak was not a drifter but rather the head of a powerful Klingon family. (DS9: "The House of Quark")

Prior to his association with USS Voyager, Neelix considered himself a nomad. As of 2372, he was still keeping in touch with friends who were nomadic. In this way, he was able to provide Captain Kathryn Janeway with information about the Botha. (VOY: "Persistence of Vision")

Later, Tom Paris described himself as a drifter, much like the Talaxian. According to Paris, the life of a drifter consisted of having the "Freedom to do what you want, when you want. No rules to follow, nobody depending on you, right?" (VOY: "Investigations")

Also that year, Mabus described his people as being " scattered, like nomads, with no home and little hope" due to frequent Kazon attempts to stop them from claiming a new homeworld. (VOY: "Alliances")

In 2377, members of Fantome's species requested to be transported to any ship in The Void, as they were nomads. (VOY: "The Void")
