SPECIES: Human Female

Harry and Lyndsay were assigned to an away mission on a Class-M planet in the Vyntadi Expanse to investigate readings of dilithium ore. However, it was a trap by a Hirogen hunting party, who had reconfigured a power cell to give a false dilithium signal. During their retreat to the shuttle, Ballard was hit by a neural disruptor and died on the way back to Voyager. Harry Kim gave the eulogy and she was buried in space.

SPECIES: Kobali Female

In 2374 the remains of Lyndsay Ballard were found drifting in space by the Kobali, a Delta Quadrant species. After re-animating her, they told her that she was dead, but she refused to believe it until they showed her a scan of her corpse lying inside a torpedo casing. In the coming months they changed her Human form into a Kobali form by altering her DNA. When the transformation was complete, she was given the Kobali name Jhet'leya and placed in a Kobali family to help her acclimate.

Although raised from the dead and transformed to Kobali, she still possessed some memories of her former Starfleet life and wanted to contact USS Voyager. However, the Kobali told her that they were part of her kyn'steya, her past life, and that she would need to forget all of them, but she couldn't. It took two years before her Kobali family trusted her enough that she felt she could risk an escape attempt. In mid-2375 she stole a Kobali shuttle and went to search for Voyager.

SPECIES: Kobali Male

After contacting Captain Kathryn Janeway, he was allowed to speak to his daughter, who by now was using her Human name Lyndsay Ballard, and with the help of The Doctor, had transformed her Kobali appearance back to Human.

Although Q'ret explained to her that she was no longer Human but Kobali and why she remembered parts of her former life, she still refused to return. She told him to call her Lyndsay Ballard and not Jhet'leya. Harry Kim and Captain Janeway accused Q'ret of tampering with her remains but he told them that he acted according to Kobali customs. When Q'ret asked if her first thoughts were in the Kobali or Human language, she didn't answer. When Q'ret asked her what he should tell Tynsiya, Lyndsay answered "tell her that her sister's dead" and left the room.

Before being escorted out of the ready room by Lieutenant Commander Tuvok, Q'ret told the captain that he would not give her up. Although he did not want to fight, his ship being no match for Voyager, he would be back with more ships.

The next day Q'ret was joined by two other ships and started firing upon Voyager. When Kim was about to destroy one of the ships via a polaron burst, he was stopped by Lyndsay who told him that she could not stay; the Lyndsay Ballard they knew was dead, but at least this time she had had the chance to say goodbye.

After the ceasefire, Jhet'leya was beamed back to her father's ship and back to her Kobali life.
