Tv Season Info

A starship is stranded in the uncharted Delta Quadrant in this fourth 'Star Trek' series, the first to feature a female captain. Here, the crew grudgingly teams with Maquis rebels to try to return to Earth after Voyager is hurtled 70,000 light-years from Federation space. The show's two-hour premiere coincided with the UPN network's launch. Genevieve Bujold was originally cast as Janeway, but was replaced by Kate Mulgrew after only a few days of filming.

Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Voyager: Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

This true sense of the unknown, combined with more crew-member friction than usual and a whole new galaxy of Star Trek aliens to introduce, gives Star Trek: Voyager built-in drama to spare.

Upon rewatch, Voyager is still a surprisingly solid show.

Caretaker is one of Star Trek's best pilots.

Personally, I think it represents what Star Trek: Voyager as a series was trying to accomplish, years before Hollywood got called out for failing at it so awfully: bringing a truly diverse crew to the screen, and to the Star Trek canon.

The lost-in-space premise gave Star Trek: Voyager a compelling narrative arc.

Executive producer Brannon Braga once said that Voyager should be The X-Files of space, and [Phage] shows it meeting that potential.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Voyager: Season 1

Bereft of ideas, Star Trek rips off Battlestrar Galactica for its 4th series, Star Trek: Voyager. Thrown halfway across the galaxy and suffering from massive casualties, the U.S.S. Voyager embarks on a long journey to Earth after reforming its crew from a captured terrorist vessel and a pair of friendly aliens who offer to be their guides. Unfortunately the casting is rather poor, as none of the actors quite have the screen presence of previous Star Trek casts (except for Robert Picardo). And the series is unable to setup any interest new alien races that compare to the traditional ones from the other series: i.e. Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, etc. However, the show is still Star Trek and manages to deliver a few good episodes full of adventure and mystery. Season 1 of Star Trek: Voyager is pretty rough, but it has its moments and shows promise.
