An Intrepid-class vessel capable of holding 200 crew members, the U.S.S. Voyager is one of the fastest and most powerful starships in Starfleet. Although at 1130 feet long it is about half the size of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D, the Voyager is more technologically advanced than previous Star Trek vessels. Superbly equipped for exploration and research, the Voyager has an equally impressive array of defensive and offensive weapons, making it ready for action.
Voyager is the second of only four Intrepid-class starships built by Starfleet to date, launched in 2371 on Stardate 48038.5.
On stardate 48307.5, Voyager was pulled over 70,000 light-years from the Badlands area near Deep Space Nine by an extragalactic alien dubbed "Caretaker." The alien had been searching the galaxy for a compatible life-form with which to procreate.
Voyager's assigned first officer Cavitt, helmsman Stadi, chief engineer, and doctor and nurse were killed in the transfer as well as a transporter chief and other crewmembers. Its original short mission did not call for a counselor to be assigned.
Voyager is currently en route from the Delta quadrant to Federation space; at maximum speed, however, the journey may take up to seventy years.
Voyager's folding wing-and-nacelle warp drive system allows the Starship to exceed the warp 5 "speed limit" without polluting the space continuum. Voyager can reach a speed of warp 9.975, but only for short periods.
Its EPS system and back-up have been totally modified to employ Enaran power-conservation technology; power relays on some decks now employ Borg technology. It carried 152 people as of SD 48975.1; Chakotay doesn't believe it can be operated with less than 100.
