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.

, who plays Thomas Eugene Paris in this series, also appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation: The First Duty
(1992), as Nicholas Locarno. The character of Paris was written to be Locarno, but various legal issues, like having to pay royalties to the writers of "The First Duty" for single episode of this show, in which Locarno would appear, made the idea unworkable, so they turned him into a different character. Tom Paris' background and personality were based in part on Locarno, making him the same character in almost everything but name. (Or, according to an alternate explanation, the Tom Paris character was being developed separately, and then someone noticed the similarity to Locarno and suggested casting McNeill only as an afterthought.)
