Star Trek: Voyager (also referred to as ST:VOY or ST:VGR) is a science fiction television series set in the Star Trek universe. Set in the 24th century from the year 2371 through 2378, the series follows the adventures of the Starfleet vessel USS Voyager, which becomes stranded in the Delta Quadrant 70,000 light-years from Earth while pursuing a renegade Maquis ship.[1] Both ships' crews merge aboard Voyager to make the estimated 75-year journey home.[2]

The show was created by Rick Berman, Michael Piller, and Jeri Taylor and is the fourth incarnation of Star Trek, which began with the 1960s series Star Trek, created by Gene Roddenberry. It was produced for seven seasons, from 1995 to 2001, and is the only Star Trek series with a female captain, Kathryn Janeway, as a lead character. It ran on UPN, making it the first Star Trek series to air on a major network since the original series, which aired on NBC. It lasted seven seasons on the network, making it the network's second longest series after WWF/E Smackdown!.

Production

Voyager was produced to launch UPN, a television network planned by Paramount. (Paramount originally considered launching a network on its own in 1977, which would have been anchored by the TV series Star Trek: Phase II.) Planning started in 1993, and seeds for the show's backstory, including the development of the Maquis, were placed in several Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes. Voyager was shot on the stages The Next Generation had used. The pilot, "Caretaker", was shot in October 1994. Around that time, Paramount was sold to ViacomVoyager was the first Star Trek TV series to premiere after the sale concluded.
