Sometime before 2367, she had attained the rank of Commander in the science divison in Starfleet after which she was transferred to the USS Saratoga. In the same year, her vessel was one of many that were assembled by the Federation in the desperate battle against the Borg Collective during the Battle of Wolf 359. According to records, she was one of the many who died during the disastrous battle against the Borg cube.
However, a temporal rift emerges after the destruction of the Starfleet ships with many crew surviving in escape pods. The pods enter through the rift and encounter the USS Voyager in the year 2373 which was lost in the Delta Quadrant. Rescued by the crew, Athena Rand led the survivors of the battle and ask Captain Kathryn Janeway how they got there as well as how the battle ended to which she explained. During her time on Voyager, she met her nephew Josh Rand who was a crew member on the ship and held the rank of Lieutenant.
Despite being rescued, the unique chroniton effects of the temporal rift began to cause seizures amongst the displaced survivors as well as was causing their cells to destabilize. Thus, it was decided that Athena Rand and her fellow survivors had to return through the rift where they were believed to have been killed at the hands of the Borg. (VOY comic: "Ghosts")
