The Federation starship USS Voyager, chasing a band of Maquis rebels, enters the dangerous space nebula known as the Badlands. Both ships are transported by a distant space probe to the Delta Quadrant, 75,000 light-years from Federation space. Voyager's crew and the Maquis form an uneasy truce to rescue crewmen of both ships, kidnapped by the probe's builder, the powerful, dying Caretaker. The Maquis ship is destroyed in a battle with the warlike Kazons. To prevent a Kazon aggression against a helpless world, Voyager destroys the space probe. Without the probe, it will take 75 years for Voyager to travel back to Federation space. With the differences between them rendered meaningless by time and distance, The Federation and Maquis crews unite aboard Voyager. Together, they embark on their new mission: to boldly go - home.

Producers were initially reluctant to use Q on the show. Aside from fan demand, Kate Mulgrew, who had known John DeLancie on a personal level prior to their respective Star Trek castings, helped implore producers to use him on the show. The producers reluctance stemmed from difficulties in finding a rational explanation for the Voyager crew to encounter Q. It was also felt they had to find a compelling storyline to involve Q beyond his usual role as largely a "pest". Ultimately, Michael Piller's then twenty-three-year-old son came up with the idea of discordance within the Q Continuum. Another challenge was knowing that Q had the power to return Voyager home to its proper space, which would mean ending the show. John DeLancie said he determined that if asked, Q would say, yes he could send Voyager home, but that no he wouldn't. See more

[Tuvok is setting a trap, using Tom Paris as bait
Hey, Tuvok, I know it's a little late to ask, but you're sure you've got the logic of this thing worked out?
If I am incorrect, we will know it shortly.
Ah, that makes me feel a whole lot better.
