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

This is the only episode in the history of Star Trek for which the hairstyling cost more than visual effects because most of the Janeway scenes had to be re-shot after the studio requested that Janeway have a different hairstyle. See more »

Goofs

After Torres & Kim are rescued on Ocampa, they are beamed directly to Voyager's sick bay, still wearing the clothes given to them by the Ocampan doctors. But when the scene segues back to Voyager's sick bay, Torres is wearing leather civilian clothes and Kim is wearing a uniform. (These clothes had been removed from them on the Caretaker's array.)

A really good pilot episode
22 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Voyager's pilot episode is just as great and gripping as The Next Generation's pilot Encounter at Farpoint, but the Caretaker earns an extra brownie point because it establishes each character's basic traits clearly to the viewers. When all the principal characters' crossed paths at the Ocampan underground tunnel, you really feel that the show is really off to a great start on creating an ensemble show (well until Seven of Nine comes in halfway in season four, then the show becomes a rather one-sided affair). Bon Voyage, it has been a great seven seasons and all of its characters will be sorely missed.
