Voyager Logo

After the success of ‘Star Trek’ spin-off series ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ and ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’, it seemed inevitable that Paramount would once more look to produce another series based in the ‘Star Trek’ universe. In the latter half of ‘Deep Space Nine’s run, a new series, ‘Star Trek: Voyager’, went into production. Set at the same time as ‘DS9’, ‘Voyager’ would, due to the nature of its premise, be an almost stand-alone series, although characters and concepts found in its sister shows would still make an appearance now and again.

‘Star Trek: Voyager’ chronicles the adventures of the crew of the Federation Starship U.S.S. Voyager, an Intrepid Class Starship with an advanced warp drive capable of sustaining a cruising speed of warp 9.975, and bioneural circuitry that replaces old isolinear circuits which speed up response time. While pursuing a ship of Maquis dissenters, the Voyager crew, led by the determined Kathryn Janeway encounter a powerful alien life-form known as the Caretaker, and both crews are inadvertently transported to the Delta Quadrant, a region of the galaxy over seventy-thousand light years from Federation space. When the Maquis ship is destroyed, Captain Janeway is forced to form an unwitting alliance with the Marquis, and the two crews join together to begin their long journey home through the uncharted and often-treacherous Delta Quadrant…

Janeway’s new crew comprise of First Officer Chakotay, torn between loyalty to his new Captain and also to his Marquis compatriots; the half-human, half-Klingon B'Elanna Torres; rebel-turned-good Lieutenant Tom Paris; rookie Ops / Comm Officer Harry Kim; Tactical / Security Officer Tuvok, a logically-minded Vulcan; the hologramatic Doctor; and two aliens, the irritating Neelix and his lover, Kes.

Along the way the crew encounter spatial and temporal anomalies, meet many new alien races, experience alternate futures, and run into the Borg, with whom an encounter leads to the Voyager crew gaining a new crewmate in the shape of Seven of Nine.

After seven seasons, the series finally reached a satisfactory conclusion, but I have a sneaking suspicion that we’ll still see some more of the crew of Voyager on years to come…
