STAR TREK VOYAGER: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON details the adventures of the Starfleet's most adventurous starship, the U.S.S. Voyager, as it is led by Capitan Kathryn Janeway (Mulgrew) on missions into deep space.
In their sixth season trying to return to the Alpha Quadrant, the crew of Voyager continues to find signs that they may be close to home. They ran across another Federation starship in the season 5 cliffhanger, "Equinox," which is concluded in action-packed fashion. Then they benefit from a brief communications link to home thanks to the ongoing efforts of The Next Generation's Lt. Reginald Barclay (Dwight Schultz), occasionally assisted by Counsellor Troi (Marina Sirtis). "One Small Step" sets Voyager on the trail of NASA's first manned mission to Mars (one of the bonus features details Robert Picardo's post-Trek work with NASA).
In other episodes, Torres (Roxann Biggs-Dawson) tests the limits of Klingon honor ("Barge of the Dead"), Tuvok (Tim Russ) stretches his emotions ("Riddles), Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) and Kim (Garrett Wang) embark on a new holdeck program, wrestling superstar the Rock makes a gimmicky guest appearance ("Tsunakatse"), a former crew member returns ("Fury"), and the crew discovers a group of abandoned Borg children ("Collective"). The two most interesting characters continue to be the Doctor (Picardo) and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan). The former stretches out numerous times ("Tinker, Tailor, Doctor, Spy," "Virtuoso," "Life Line"), and we learn more about Seven's Borg past in "Survival Instinct" and the season closer, in which Seven discovers that during regeneration she can enter a dream world called Unimatrix Zero. There she meets a number of mutated Borg who can exist in this world in their pre-assimilation state and who also present an idea for destroying the collective from within. The Borg Queen, however, discovers the plan and ends the season in a nightmarish cliffhanger that recalls the great Next Gen episode "The Best of Both Worlds." --David Horiuchi

For added humor, there "Tinker, Tenor, Soldier, Spy" where the doctor enables a dream program and a plucky bureaucrat from an alien ship tries to use these dreams to control the doctor--only to find out that what he was seeing was the doctor's dreams. It's almost as funny as the episode where the doctor becomes a musical sensation or when he hides out in 7 of 9's cortical implants and winds up taking over her body and personality. Sometimes he provided the necessary levity where everything else seemed grim for Voyager.
"Muse" is also another good episode as well, as Torres and Kim are stranded on a planet when their shuttle crashes. Torres is befriended by a playwright who basically uses her stories--the stories about Voyager--to write new plays where we see these people re-enact the journey from the time that the Caretaker removed both Voyager and the Macquis ship from the Badlands to the Delta Quadrant.
The season begain with "Equinox" where Voyager encounters another starfleet ship brought into the Delta Quadrant. Once again, the crew is tempted to use what that ship is using for power to get home with, but once it is discovered that the captain of that ship is killing off a race of creatures and using their bodies for the power, this leaves Janeway and crew distressed, especially when these creatures attack Voyager with the intent to destroy it for what Equinox is doing.
Then there is "Child's Play" where we discover the back story behind Ichib, one of the Borg Children rescued from a failing cube. Turns out his family genetically engineered him to infect the Collective and destroy the Borg ships from the inside. After Janeway returns him to his family, his father sends him off again to infect another Borg ship and Janeway must rescue him again and make him a member of the Voyager crew.
Of course one must also discuss "Pathfinder" and the mission that both Barclay and Admiral Paris undertake to establish communications with Janeway and crew in the Delta Quadrant. Especially now that the admiral wants to contact his son.
Overall, this season was a typical Voyager season--beginning with a cliffhanger where Voyager was facing destruction in the Delta Quadrant at the hands of someone else, only to end in another cliffhanger where Janeway and crew need to improvise again to figure out a way to survive the Delta Quadrant.
