Storyline

Both the Voyager crew and the Maquis have to deal with the powerful alien - the Caretaker - who transported them 70,000 light-years across the galaxy, to see if he will send them back home. At the same time, a group of warrior aliens called the Kazon strive to gain control of the Caretaker's space station and become the most powerful force in the region. Written by Tony-B4

Trivia

Even during auditions, the creative staff was unsure whether Janeway would be female or male. They opened up the auditions to both genders. Some of the male contenders for the role included Gary Graham and Nigel Havers. See more »

Goofs

Tuvok includes the Ocampan city's energy surplus that will "last at least five years" in the evidence he lists in support of the hypothesis that the Caretaker is dying. However, that information was revealed to Kim and Torres by the nurse who tells them how to access the surface. Nobody told the away team that information. See more »

Wonderful start to a bad series
25 March 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

Caretaker was really great, but as many other Trekkers will note, Voyager went way downhill from here. With the Next Generation in the movies and DS9 not exploring space, the pilot for Voyager takes audiences where they have never gone before. The story is interesting and way above in the quality department then most of the Voyager episodes. There is good acting too. Sadly, Voyager does go down from here and loses it's creativity.
