Operation Watson

Earth calling Voyager

Operation Watson was the first attempt by Starfleet Communications in 2378 to successfully create a communications link between Earth in the Alpha Quadrant and the USS Voyager, thirty thousand light years away in the Delta Quadrant. It involved bouncing the signal off a quantum singularity using the MIDAS array, and provided a live link for eleven minutes each day. The project itself was devised by Harry Kim and Seven of Nine, who coordinated with Reginald Barclay. (VOY: "Author, Author")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 107), Operation Watson was "presumably named for Thomas Watson, who assisted Alexander Graham Bell in the invention of the telephone."
