From the year 2371, the USS Voyager was under the command of Captain Kathryn Janeway. During her tenure as captain, Voyager was the first Federation starship to explore the Delta Quadrant. Voyager had major impact on the Delta Quadrant with first contact with new species, the Borg and other missions.
Voyager underwent a final inspection by Captain Janeway and Admiral Theoderich Patterson at Utopia Planitia. Janeway discusses her mission to find the Maquis under former Starfleet Commander Chakotay and her Chief of Security, Lieutenant Tuvok with Patterson. Voyager undertook a shakedown cruise near the Demilitarized Zone's border. Unfortunately, Voyager's bio-neural gel packs malfunction and Voyager had to be towed back to Utopia Planitia for repairs by the USS Hood under Captain Robert DeSoto.(VOY episode: "Relativity"; VOY - The Brave and the Bold novel: The Third Artifact)
