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. 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.

The senior staff of Voyager include Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), who commands the ship; Lt. Commander (field commission) Chakotay (Robert Beltran), her first officer who joined from the Maquis; Lt. Tuvok (Tim Russ) (later rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander) the Security/Tactical officer; Ensign Harry Kim (Garrett Wang), the Operations Officer; Lt jg (junior grade). (field commission) B'Elanna Torres (Roxann Dawson), Chief Engineer; Lt. jg (falling to ensign as a result of demotion but later rising in rank to full lieutenant) Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeil) Helm Officer, as well as several non-commissioned personnel, the Emergency Medical Hologram (Robert Picardo) as the Chief Medical Officer, Neelix (Ethan Phillips) as the ship's cook and later Voyager's ambassador, Kes (Jennifer Lien) as the EMH's Medical Assistant and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) who plays several roles, generally in Astrometrics or Engineering.

Several recurring characters include, Naomi Wildman, the "Captain's Assistant" and daughter of Ensign Samantha Wildman, and the Borg children, Icheb, Mezoti, Azan and Rebi.

Design and capabilities

The 15-deck (257 rooms), 700,000 metric-tonne[6] Voyager was built at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, and launched from Earth Station McKinley.[1]

Voyager is equipped with bio-neural gel packs, designed to increase processing speed and better organize processed information, that supplement the ship's isolinear optical chips. The ship had 47 spare gel packs and could not replicate additional packs.[2] The ship also has two holodecks.[7] Voyager was the first ship to be equipped with a class-9 warp drive, which they were intended to test in deep space, allowing for a maximum sustainable speed of Warp 9.975.[1] Variable geometry pylons allow Voyager and other Intrepid class ships to exceed warp 5 without damaging subspace.[8] Voyager is capable of planetary landings.

Voyager includes an Emergency Medical Hologram programmed with a library of more than 5 million different medical treatments from 2,000 medical references and 47 physicians.[9] The hologram itself is generated by a series of holographic emitters installed in sickbay.[2] Voyager's EMH is eventually able to leave sickbay due to a piece of 29th century technology commonly referred to as the mobile emitter.[10]

The ship is initially equipped with 42 photon torpedoes with type VI warheads and two tricobalt devices, both of which are used to destroy the Caretaker's array.[2] Quantum torpedoes were also compatible with Voyager's launchers, with some modification. Voyager housed five standard torpedo launchers (two fore and two aft, and one on the dorsal side of the ship[11]) able to fire up to four torpedoes per launcher at once. An alternate future Kathryn Janeway equips the ship with transphasic torpedoes and ablative hull armor.[3]

During the years in the Delta Quadrant, the ship is augmented with custom, non-spec upgrades and modifications, some of which are modified from technology of other cultures, an example being Seven of Nine's alcoves and the Delta Flyer which both utilize modified Borg technology. Several pieces of technology from the future were also installed, courtesy of Admiral Janeway who went back in time to bring Voyager home.[3] Some of the adaptive solutions are to compensate for the disadvantages of being 70,000 light years from port, such as the airponics bay and the transformation of the Captain's dining room to a kitchen, and later acquires enhancements from aliens in the Void that massively increases replicator efficiency.[12]

The Borg are a major source of technological upgrades conducted on Voyager. Cargo Bay 2 is equipped with several Borg alcoves when Captain Janeway forms an alliance with the Borg, and several Borg are forced to work aboard Voyager during the alliance.[13] Seven of Nine and Harry Kim build an astrometrics lab from scratch with Borg-enhanced sensors, knowledge of which Seven of Nine retained from the Borg.[14] Additionally, the crew design and build the Delta Flyer support craft, at the behest of Tom Paris.
