The fictional Intrepid-class starship USS Voyager is the primary setting of the science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager. It is commanded by Captain Kathryn Janeway. Voyager was designed by Star Trek: Voyager production designer Richard D. James and illustrator Rick Sternbach. Most of the ship's on-screen appearances result from computer-generated imagery, although Tony Meinenger built a model used in the series. The principal model of Voyager used for filming sold at Christie's auction 6 October 2006 for USD $132,000.[4]

Mission

Voyager was launched in 2371, with a crew of 153. Her first orders were to track down a Maquis ship in "the Badlands". An alien force called the Caretaker transports both Voyager and the Maquis vessel across 70,000 light-years to the Delta Quadrant, damaging Voyager and killing several crewmembers (including first officer Lt. Cmdr. Cavit, chief medical officer Dr. Fitzgerald and the rest of the medical staff, helm officer Stadi, and the chief engineer). In order to prevent a genocide of the Ocampans, Janeway orders the destruction of a device that could transport Voyager and the Maquis vessel home. Stranded, and with the Maquis ship also destroyed, both crews must integrate and work together for the anticipated 75-year journey home.[2]

Starfleet Command eventually becomes aware of the ship's presence in the Delta Quadrant[5] and is later able to establish regular communication. After a seven-year journey, the ship returns to the Alpha Quadrant via a Borg transwarp conduit with the aid of the time-traveling Admiral Kathryn Janeway (former Captain of Voyager) from an alternate future.[3]

Crew

USS Voyager was launched with 153 crew on board. After being flung to the Delta Quadrant, a number of crew were killed including several senior officers, namely Lt. Commander Cavit, the first officer, Chief Medical Officer Fitzgerald and Lieutenant Stadi, the Betazoid Helm Officer and also the chief engineer.

As of 2377, the crew complement was at 146, having gained some crew from the Maquis, the Equinox, Samantha Wildman's child Naomi, and several liberated Borg drones, including Seven of Nine and Icheb.
