Product Description

Amazon.ca

Star Trek: Voyager began life in 1995 with some truly fascinating prospects in its two-hour pilot episode. Opening in the 24th century, a setting contemporary with that of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and carrying over story elements from each of those series, "Caretaker" finds Starfleet Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) stepping into the middle of Federation troubles with the Maquis, an army of rebels violently resisting the interplanetary organization's treaty with the brutal Cardassians. In the process, both Voyager and the Maquis ship under surveillance are accidentally catapulted out of the galaxy's Alpha Quadrant (the familiar stomping grounds of Starfleet personnel) by a benign but dying being called the Caretaker. Voyager ends up in the unexplored Delta Quadrant, some 70,000 light years away.

So much seemed dramatically promising in this debut, especially the unwieldy alliance of Starfleet regulars and hostile Maquis, and the likelihood that a lifetime spent in isolation, trying to get home, would lead to the development of a self-contained society on the ship, yet Voyager never entirely made up its mind what it was supposed to be about. The curiously cheesy sets and fascinating, progressive management style of Janeway (half mommy, half taskmaster) were also new developments in Star Trek culture. As the 16-episode season continued, character backstories were developed in such episodes as "The Cloud" (arguably the best episode of the season), "Eye of the Needle" (underscoring Janeway and the crew's sadness), "State of Flux" (in which a search for a traitor reveals a past romance between Commander Chakotay, played by Robert Beltran, and sexy Bajoran engineer Seska, played by Martha Hackett), and "Jetrel" (which explores the character of Neelix, the Talaxian played by Ethan Phillips, during a parable about scientific ethics and moral responsibility).

Among other notable episodes, "Phage" strikes a nice balance among character development, story hook, and moral and emotional conflict when Neelix is literally robbed of his lungs by the Vidiians, a once-civilized people who are combating a deadly disease called the Phage by stealing organs. (The disease would return in "Faces," a fine showcase for Roxann Biggs-Dawson as Chief Engineer B'Elanna Torres.) "Emanations" stirred controversy among the series' producers and some fans for its philosophical look at death, and "Time and Again" is a unique time-travel story in which Janeway and Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) get caught in a subspace fracture that places them just hours before they know a planet is going to be destroyed. In "Prime Factors," latent tensions among Voyager personnel erupts into serious conflict, an issue revisited in the season finale, "Learning Curve." Despite a pat ending that resolves the Maquis conflict much too easily, the episode drives home the fact that Voyager and its crew are all alone, making the most of a difficult predicament. --Tom Keogh and Jeff Shannon

After collecting TNG series You might be very disappointed when opening Voyager Season package. My first impression was that the box set is incomplete, that something is missing. What you get is 5 DVD's packed in the cheapest, orange and slim disk 5-box which has nothing from the dignity of the movie. It looks like the set is packed with replacement box. The box envelope is not even made of plastic but from thick plastic foil. There is practically no way to smoothly close the box without fastening also cheaply glued back paper cover. What a shame! The DVD discs looks like they're copied from the original ones, the top side of the disc has almost no print except small and hard to read white information regarded recorded DVD material. For me personally they remind a clean DVD+R/-R discs ready to be burned. The package is designed so badly, that there is no way to avoid fingerprints on the first disc surface when taking out any discs just because this one is not covered with anything! Inserting the disc is also difficult, the center disc holder is so tight that you get the feeling about possible disc damage. Personally I suggest to secure all discs using another package. With original ST-V package your discs will become dirty and even might become damaged in case of accidental squeeze. I give "0" (zero) stars for packaging.
But things become even worse because in US version of season 1 there are 2 episodes missing: "Arena" and "The City On The Edge Of Forever". These two episodes are included in European version of Voyager, isn't it interesting ? Anyway having multiregion dvd-player consider purchase further Voyager Seasons released in Europe. You will get a nice package and as I see more episodes to enjoy. Anyway this is what I'm going to do.

Much too expensive for the way this collection was packaged. The first season of Voyager shows the great vision that Gene Roddenberry had with his first original series, but Paramount is just seeking to milk as much money from the loyal viewers as possible. The cheap cover and lack of pamphlets make this a shameful release. Compared to the Stargate SG-1 releases, which are way more reasonable and much better packaged, the only reason I bought this was because Amazon's price was more reasonable than retail stores.

I happily admit this is my favourite Star Trek series. I think that the manuscripts have a subtlety, that the other series lack. Much of it boils down to the characters of Janeway and the Hologram. Janeway is caught in an impossible situation: a routine mission turns into a desperate attempt to get home. The mere presence of the Voyager in the Delta Quadrant upsets the fragile stability of the region. Instead of causing good, Janeway has to work on limiting the damage they cause. Several times she has to make painful decisions, decisions that are not right or wrong, they are rather based on convenience. Star Trek has come a long way from Kirk!
Secondly, the Hologram is a particularly strong character. He desperately wants to be a human, but lacks the capability. The one time he has the chance, Janeway takes it away from him. Again, a strong development from Spock and Data. I also like many of the minor character, especially Chicote. At last a Native is allowed into the Star Trek universe. And he carries his own luggage.
Many of the stories are based on human falliability, they lack the grandeur and paraphernalia of, say TSG, but I think that that is where their charm is.

Voyager is without a doubt, one of the best. The show's got a great mix and an excellent cast. I saw this DVD collection, however, at a local video store and was less than impressed. I definately would not pay 130$ for this DVD set, - you don't even get the consolation prize of a nice box and pamphlet to make the money worth it. Paramount should really be ashamed at the poor job they suffered upon the fans of Star Trek.
I started shopping around and found to my surprise, that the German release of Voyager is about 110$ (95ˆ) and a much better buy. Firstly, the German edition comes with 6, not 5 discs, which include 2 Original Series episodes ("Arena" ST:TOS Ep.19, and "The City On The Edge Of Forever" ST:TOS Ep. 28), the first released ever on DVD. This, as far as I know, is not included in the US release. The box and packaging is also 1000% nicer, resembling that of the Next Generation Box Sets. This set also includes a much larger language selection, English, German, Italian, Spanish and French being all in Dolby 5.1.
So I give the US Release three stars and two thumbs down. The stars are for the content. The German Paramount's release gets five stars however. If you have a region free DVD player, or watch your DVDs on your computer, then you might want to consider going to amazon.de to buy your STar Trek Voyager Box Set. The extra postage is well worth the money...and in the long run, its not that much cheaper.

So far i bought 5 seasons of Xfiles which was ridicusly priced like this dvd set. $97 marked from $129?? I can understand it being somewhere around $70 marked down to $50, these are tvshows should be no more then $5 per episode. But yet these companies are scamming us like gas companies are.. except you have to have gas to be able to drive around with. Still this and other star trek box sets are too overpriced. Most of us had already seen like every or at least majority of the episodes from Star trek. You might as well get a bunch of 8hr vhs tapes & tape the series since i believe they are still showing it, i cant even afford to get the rest of the xfiles series even though i want to get it badly. The original Star trek series is even worse.. only 2 episodes on each dvd set.. ridiculus.. anyways even though this is one box set that is unreasonably priced and i wont buy it until i see one under $50.. it is still a pretty good season for ST Voyager.. i think this is my fav series because it has more to it then TOS & TNG. Also it has a little more action in it as well.
