Trivia

The role of Janeway was the most sought after role, with Linda Hamilton, Nicola Bryant, Erin Gray, Lindsay Wagner, Patty Duke, Carolyn McCormick and Joanna Cassidy all vying for the role. Susan Gibney (Dr. Leah Brahms on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) and Captain Benteen on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) was originally asked to play Captain Janeway by Rick Berman and Michael Piller, but the studio rejected her, stating that she looked too young to be a captain. Scenes of her wearing a type of a command uniform (the type used on the previous shows) on the Voyager bridge were taped. See more »

Goofs

When Janeway first enters Engineering to investigate the warp core fracture, a technician tells her the pressure is 2100 KPa; she reacts as though that is dangerously high. Following the procedure to lower the reaction rate (and thus core pressure), the quoted pressure is 2500 KPa -- higher than before. See more »

I hated it
16 July 1999 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

I really hated this movie. The acting was so bad, the actors weren't "in" the story, do you know what i mean ??.

And the plot, well after ten minutes anyone can see how the movie is going to end.
