When Star Trek: Voyager launched in January 1995, The Next Generation had finished just six months earlier, the movie Star Trek Generations was still in theaters, and spinoff series StarTrek: Deep Space Nine was in the midst of airing it’s third season. Suffice to say, there was a lot of Star Trek in pop culture at that moment.
To differentiate the new series, the creators had the titular ship get lost in an unknown region of space, forcing the crew to find their way home while cut off from everything and everyone they loved. The crew was led by Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), the first female captain in Star Trek history. Producers assembled a fantastic cast around Mulgrew, each of whom went on to become a beloved part of Trek lore. In season four, the series added Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, the cat-suited, ex-Borg who went on to become one of the franchise’s most popular characters.
