Washed up on a faraway galactic shore, Captain Kathryn Janeway of the U.S.S. Voyager™ faced a choice: accept exile or set a course for home, a seventy-thousand-light-year journey fraught with unknown perils. She chose the latter. Janeway’s decision launched her crew on a seven-year trek pursuing an often lonely path that embodied the purest form of the Starfleet adage “to boldly go…”™
Committed to that difficult road, Voyager’s crew was rewarded with unimaginable experiences on strange and fantastic worlds, encountering exotic alien species and astonishing phenomena…and challenged along the way by conflicts from within as well as from without. Yet none of their adventures tempered their shared determination to find a way back to friends and family.
My story was set early in the series as Chakotay and Tuvok both think their order takes precdencee while the ship was in danger.
