Star Trek: Voyager, the first Trek spin-off to be made without any input at all from Gene Roddenberry, made its debut in 1995 and quickly established itself both as markedly different from cosmic cousin Deep Space Nine and as the successor to The Next Generation. Despite a lack of originality in its premise (Lost in Space anyone?), Voyager was nonetheless often a bigger ratings success than any of its predecessors.
In the first series the crew of the Federation vessel Voyager must somehow try to get back home after being catapulted unwittingly to the far-flung Delta Quadrant (in the opening "Caretaker"). The ghost of Katherine Hepburn lives on in Kate Mulgrew's forceful Captain Janeway, who has an equivocal relationship with the Maquis renegade who becomes her first officer, Chakotay (Robert Beltran). Tim Russ gives possibly the franchise's first fully realistic (yawn) portrayal of a Vulcan, and to enhance the alien quotient there's cuddly chef Neelix (Ethan Phillips). Garret Wang must have drawn short straw for character development, since his Harry Kim is never imbued with any of the drama of rebellious pilot chum Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill), who was later to get the series' only romance with the seemingly inescapable resident half-breed B'Elanna Torres (Roxann Dawson). Right from the start, though, the fans' favourite character was the deadpan funny man role of Robert Picardo's nameless holographic Doctor. Jerry Goldsmith's graceful theme always opens the show in style. --Paul Tonks

But back to Kate Mulgrew who plays such a brilliant (and very believable) captain of the lost spaceship Voyager which is struggling to find its way home through space - she comes across as a real ice maiden, cold and logical and sometimes seemingly devoid of any personal emotion but you know she means business and this first season does a great job of setting her up as a principled and disciplined leader who is fair, sassy and controversial enough to make you love and hate her in equal measure. Some of the episodes are brilliant, some are very good and there are just one or two that drag a little in comparison to an episode that came before, but for a first season of a new series (obviously not new now) I think it's brilliant and does more than enough to make you want to get straight into season two with a nice season finale.Read more ›
Enter Voyager - a Federation starship that gets flung into the Delta Quadrant on the other side of the Galaxy by a mysterious alien known as the Caretaker, and now desperately trying to get home.
The good thing about Voyager is that, because its set on the other side of the Galaxy, all the traditional villians, like the Romulans and the Cardassians, are gone. Which means they're forced to come up with new villians, like the Kazon (okay, they're a bit wimpy) and the Vidiians (sadly underused, kind of like futuristic Frankensteins!). Of course, for continuity, there are still references to the previous series - the fact that half of Voyager's crew are Maquis, that one of them is a Cardassian in disguise, and the Romulans make a cameo appearance all tie the series to its roots.
With the conclusion of TNG, everyone was expecting something fresh and different. Voyager manages to succeed in part, but the first series is a little weak. Clanger episodes include 'Parallax', where Voyager gets stuck in a quantum singularity (black hole) and has to break free by punching a hole in the event horizon. I was laughing my head off watching that! Poor science sticks out like a Vidiian thumb!
However, it appears that lessons have been learned from DS9.Read more ›
