Over thirty-five years ago, creating a television series about a group of explorers making their way across the unexplored reaches of space was a gamble for a small studio. For the network that bought the show, it proved to be an even greater gamble, and after three seasons with "disappointing" ratings they cancelled Star Trek.®

In the subsequent decades, a great deal changed. By 1995, Star Trek and its two successors, Star Trek: The Next Generation® and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,® had changed the face of syndication across the country. Now as the studio and its parent company, Viacom, looked to launch their own network, a new Star Trek series would easily become the cornerstone of the new enterprise.

In creating Star Trek: Voyager, Executive Producers Rick Berman, Michael Piller, and Jeri Taylor embraced Star Trek's original theme of "exploring strange new worlds and new civilizations," then took it a step further by stranding their crew in the farthest reaches of the Delta Quadrant, totally cut off from all that was familiar. It was a bold step, one that forced both the starship's crew and the show itself to stand on its own, its success determined by its own resourcefulness.

For seven years, Captain Kathryn Janeway and the crew of the aptly named Starship Voyager™ lived with one goal -- to get home -- and strove to live up to the ideals of Starfleet as they traveled alone in a tumultuous region of space. Relive their epic journey through summaries, photos, and detailed episode data in this official companion to Star Trek: Voyager, the series that proved once again the power of Star Trek.

Just watched every Voyager episode in air date order and had the book by my side every step of the way. What a useless piece of trash it is. A few sidebars are ok, but it's not even in the same league as the other Star Trek books of its kind. Read full review
