While on a short-term mission to track an infiltrated Maquis cell, Capt. Kathryn Janeway and her newly launched U.S.S. Voyager crew -- and the Maquis fighter crew -- are drawn 70,000 lightyears to the far side of the Delta Quadrant by an alien seeking survival, calling itself "the Caretaker." As the Voyager and Maquis crews forge a tentative bond of survival, Janeway decides to cut off the escape route homeward to deal with the aggressive Kazon-Ogla, the Ocampa's devastated world, and the "Caretaker" who blames himself for it.
