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.

Did You Know?
The Kazon, the archenemy tribe from the first two seasons, were modelled after Los Angeles street gangs, but were poorly received by viewers, who regarded them as weaker imitations of the Klingons. They were written out of the series after the early part of season three (but continued to appear in flashbacks, dreams, et cetera), and were mentioned in Star Trek: Voyager: Mortal Coil
(1997) as being unworthy of assimilation by the Borg. See more
The Doctor is never given a rank. Since Data, an "Artificial life form" carries a rank, once the Captain declared the Doctor to be part of the crew, she should have assigned him a rank. However, the Doctor is unique and quite different from Data (who attended Starfleet Academy and earned his rank from years of working in Starfleet). Additionally, the Captain considered Neelix, Kes, and Seven of Nine to be part of the crew but they weren't given a rank either, so the commissioning of officers is by no means an automatic thing just because somebody is part of the crew.

Shall I flog them as well?
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
