That's Captain Kathryn Janeway of the Federation starship USS Voyager standing there.  You can easily see her red uniform shoulders, her communicator badge glinting in the sun, and her infamous hair-do.  I recognized it as soon as I saw it, even without clicking your link, which mentions the popular Star Trek website "Memory Alpha" in the photo description. 

"The 37s" was a fun episode even with the completely impossible opening segment, wherein an ancient Earth pick-up truck found floating in space is fired right up in the Voyager's shuttle bay.   ::)

Good eye!

I would suggest we un-pin this from the top of the forum topics. It has been quite some time, and there are unlikely to be any new developments.

Well, before this thread gets moved, let me ask this question:  "Is there any sign in any of the photographs of activity around the site of the cairn/pile of coral slabs found by the Betchart Expedition team?" 

Would someone please annotate one of the  photographs with the approximate location of the cairn?

I've circled the general location but I don't see anything unusual.  The putative cairn was seen and photographed by one of the Betchart tourists during one of their walk-abouts.  No experienced TIGHAR was present, no GPS reading was taken, and no map was marked.  We have only the finder's general description that the feature was at the northwest end of the island.

Thanks Ric.

It kind of makes sense they'd favor that area as 'Camp Zero'.  It looks to me like they'd have a favorable breeze and with just a few steps perhaps, they'd have a near-180 degree field of view to the horizon and still be able to keep an eye on the Electra.

Would it be possible to post a link to DropBox or wherever these are stored so that TIGHAR members, who helped pay for this trip and the analysis, can view them freely and see what they can find?

Have you really missed the point of this entire 22 page thread?

I know that we never got  final report on what was or was not seen. I think it's only fair that those of us who helped pay to send you and Jeff down there get to see the fruits of our investment.

No "final report" was promised.  This thread includes extensive discussions of what was seen and not seen.

Hi-res images of all the NZ photos were made available to all TIGHAR members at the TIGHAResearcher Level and above in August 1013.

On that note, I'd like to ask what Jeff's findings were on this object in photo 301.

And if it wasn't evaluated by Jeff, then I'm curious what everyone thinks this is. It's definitely not a natural object and it's quite large (~ 20').

I'm attaching a small jpg crop of the original photo with location circled.

And then a close-up of the object.
