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.

The intended name for the EMH Doctor, Zimmerman, was said to be named after Star Trek Production Designer Herman F. Zimmerman
. It was also pointed out that the German word Zimmermann literally translates as roomman, which the EMH essentially was, as he was always confined to one room in the first few episodes. In German idiom, Zimmermann means a carpenter, who is a maker of rooms. See more
Once the Doctor gets his mobile emitter, he is free to go about the entire ship and on away missions. When he is transported, his entire body shows the transporter effect like all the other characters.
But since the only part of him that is made of real matter is the emitter, only it should be shown transporting. The Doctor's image should simply disappear as the emitter is transported. See more
Why don't we sing a song while we toil, hm? It'll cheer you up. Now, I've been studying Vulcan music. Do you know that lovely tune that starts "Oh starless night of boundless black...
That "lovely tune" is a traditional funeral dirge.
I know. But it was the, er... the most cheerful song I could find in the Vulcan database.
Several episodes, such as the show's debut and finale, were originally aired as 2-hour TV-movies. For syndication, these episodes were reedited into two-part episodes to fit one-hour timeslots. See more
