In the 24th century, a renegade band of freedom fighters known as the Maquis are operating outside Federation law. When one of its ships carrying undercover Starfleet Security Officer Tuvok (Tim Russ) disappears in "The Badlands," the USS Voyager, lead by Captain Kathryn Janeway, (Kate Mulgrew) is dispatched to retrieve him. Voyager is then swept 70,000 light years away to the Delta Quadrant and into the clutches of an alien known as "The Caretaker." Only after Captain Janeway and the Maquis' Captain Chakotay (Robert Beltran) band together are both sides able to free themselves from the Caretaker. Once safely aboard Voyager, Chakotay takes up Janeway's offer to merge their crews under a Starfleet operation in order to find the way back home.

This episode was first released on LaserDisc as part of "The Captain's Collection."
