The complete first season of the popular Star Trek spin-off series. In the pilot episode, 'Caretaker (Parts 1 and 2)', a Maquis ship inexplicably disappears during plasma storms in the Badlands. USS Voyager is assigned to investigate. To assist the mission, Captain Kathryn Janeway recruits a reluctant, cashiered Starfleet Officer who has also acted as a mercenary for the Maquis. Whilst exploring the renegade ship's last known position Voyager is mysteriously propelled 70 000 light years from home. Searching this uncharted quadrant of the galaxy, they become embroiled in a centuries-old enviromental problem on a nearby inhabited world. In 'Parallax', USS Voyager goes to the aid of a stricken vessel, only to become entrapped in a vortex of distorted time and space. 'Time and Again' sees Captain Janeway and Lieutenant Paris journey back to the past in order to solve the mystery surrounding a devastated world. In 'Phage', the quest to restock their starship USS Voyager has brought them to a barren planetoid where Neelix is attacked and has his lungs stolen. In 'The Cloud', the USS Voyager travels to the heart of a large nebula, but once inside becomes trapped and the crew realise that everything is not as it seems. In 'Eye of the Needle', Harry Kim discovers a wormhole, which the crew of the USS Voyager hope will lead back to the Alpha Quadrant. In 'Ex Post Facto', Tom Paris is convicted of murder whilst on an alien planet. In 'Emanations', the crew of the Voyager make a gruesome discovery while investigating a new chemical element and Harry Kim mysteriously disappears. In 'Prime Factors', the crew discover that the aliens offering them lavish hospitality on their shore leave also have the technology to send the Voyager back to their own quadrant - but the alien laws forbid their use of it. In 'State of Flux', the Voyager encounters the fearsome Kazon warriors again as they investigate a wrecked Kazon starship. They soon discover evidence of a traitor in their midst. In 'Heroes and Demons', several members of the Voyager crew disappear in a holodeck recreation of the medieval poem, Beowulf. The only member of the crew who can enter the holodeck safely is the reluctant doctor. In 'Cathexis', the USS Voyager finds a shuttlecraft containing an unconscious Tuvok and a comatose Chakotay. But when some of the crew of the Voyager start behaving strangely, it becomes apparent that the shuttlecraft has more than just two members. In 'Faces', the Vidians, a group of repulsive aliens who have contracted a disease which disfigures their faces, believe that the only cure is Klingon DNA. The Vidians then decide to use such technology to make B'elanna a full Klingon. In 'Jetrel', a shuttlecraft hails the Voyager with bad news for Neelix, informing him that he may be suffering from a life-threatening disease. In 'Learning Curve', the crew is plunged into danger when the computer starts to malfunction. Pressures build up as some of the Maquis in the crew decide not to follow Starfleet regulations.
