Retrieve Harry Kim's dead body.
 
I never felt comfortable knowing that the original Harry Kim was left dead, frozen and floating in space in the Delta Quadrant. He was the one person who most eagerly wanted to get back to Earth but he never got to see his homeworld again. Now that X2 will give us an Iconian gateway to the Delta Quadrant, how about we go back there in a mission and retrieve his body and bring it back to Earth for a proper funeral?

That was over 32 years ago, dude.

Seriously, what is wrong with you?

What's wrong with showing respect for the dead? Human history is full of examples of retrieving bodies much older than that for a proper burial.

The copy got home - the real guy was killed and left in space. http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Deadlock_(episode)

Well, STO is not canon so...

Second, mostly all characters on voyager were "comic sidekicks", only they weren't funny.

They were just sorted on a scale of annoying where kim was probably ranked somewhere in the middle as "quite annoying" and so when I read your topic title I actually thought this was a post about killing that character or you asking for him to not appear again lol

Quantum duplication. Neither was a copy. Don't you know anything about quantum mechanics? ;) When you duplicate something on the quantum level, you're essentially re-writing regular physics such that both "copies" have always existed. You can't point to either as the original or being older.

Also, if you do want to try (and fail) to frame it in "original" and "copy", who's to say that damaged Voyager was the original? What if we were watching from the frame of reference of the "original" from the start?

(EDIT: Fixed my placement of "copy" and "original" in the last paragraph.)

Doesn't matter - that Voyager blew itself up, and thus, we don't have to care about it.

There are no "copies" in Star Trek Universe. Every Universe has a parallel. Timelines can change, and be interrupted messing with outcomes and such. Should we call the Janeway who got home in Endgame through said borg tunnel a copy? No.
