Star Trek: Voyager Review

The 3rd sequel from the original Star Trek series, Star Trek: Voyager, was first aired in 1995 to low critical acclaim, but had good success with TV viewers, slowly improving its ratings as the show progressed. Right behind Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the show was before Star Trek: Enterprise while having an all-star cast, including Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan, and Roxann Dawson. The difference with this series was instead of following the traditional Star Trek quest to “boldly go where no one has gone before,” Star Trek: Voyager was more into going where the crew had already been before…

Star Trek: Voyager tells the exploits of the crew on the starship USS Voyager. As the show starts, the Voyager is on a mission to capture a rogue ship of Maquis mutineers, a race of people who were first presented in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. While pursuing the Maquis, the Voyager come into a system called the badlands, and both ships are promptly transported to the Delta Quadrant more than seventy-thousand light years away on the outer edge of the galaxy. Quickly, the Maquis and the Voyager crew learn they were transported to Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker, a shadowy force supervising the safety of the Ocampan race who live in the shadow on a looming threat from the spiteful Kazon.

When the Kazon destroys the Maquis ship, the Voyager crew join forces with the Maquis crew to save themselves from the Kazon. Having damaged the device which could bring them home, the crew of the Voyager, headed by Capt. Janeway and the team of the Maquis starship, headed by Commander Chakotay (Beltran), must join together and form a united front in order to resolve their common goal of finding a way home.
