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

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 the shuttle carrying Tom Paris is first approaching Deep Space Nine and Voyager, the registry number on the shuttle clearly reads "1701-D". The model used for the shuttle is clearly one built for Star Trek: The Next Generation. 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.
