The series chronicles the journey of the Starship Voyager. Voyager has been stranded in the Delta Quadrant, a region of space about 75,000 light-years from Earth. It was the first and so far only Star Trek series to have had a female Captain as a lead character, Kathryn Janeway.


Voyager focused more on the themes presented in the original Star Trek series and ST:TNG, such as exploration and the human condition. A recurring theme was also the demonstration of democratic principles (peace, openness, freedom, cooperation, sharing) and deep philosophical issues such as the sense of self and what it means to be human. Another common plot theme was the implications of being stranded. Voyager had only limited resources, no back up and was cut off from the normal chain of command and institutions of its society. They had to struggle to survive and thus faced very different choices than Federation ships on more routine missions.
