Overview[edit | edit source]
"Voyager" chronicled the voyages of the starship Voyager, with its combined crew of Starfleet and Maquis under the command of Captain Kathryn Janeway as she tried to make her way home 70,000 light-years from the far side of the Delta Quadrant. Voyager encountered many friends and foes making first contact with more species than any other federation starship. Voyager also had several encounters with the Borg and even gaining a former Borg Drone as a member of crew three years into the Voyage. Despite the obvious series-long story arc, Voyager was often criticized for having too many "alien of the week" stand-alone episodes and not capitalizing on the fact that Voyager was so far away from home and that the crew would have to put up with a certain lacking in resources or the built in conflicts of a Maquis/Starfleet crew.
Voyager returned to the Alpha Quadrant in the final episode of the series, "Endgame." A series of novels (the Voyager "Relaunch") depicts the adventures of the crew after their return to the Federation.
