The USS Voyager and a rebel Maquis ship get swept across the galaxy by an all powerful "Caretaker." The Caretaker has been "caring" for a race of childlike creatures, the Ocampa, for hundreds of years now, and he is now dying. He is looking for a replacement. In the end, Captain Janeway and the crew decide to destroy the Caretaker's array in order to save the ocampa rather than return home. The story is told from rotating points of view, however often times that of Tom Paris and Capt. Janeway.
The review of this Book prepared by Portia
This is a story about the crew of Voyager based on the pilot episode. It is set mainly through the eyes of Tom Paris a convicted criminal who is enlisted to help Captain Janeway find the Maquis rebels. However both Voyager and The Maquis they are chasing are pulled to the other side of the galaxy and have to try and get back home. We see their motivations, and feelings which may not have been obvious in the TV episode. It also deals with the shock of the prospect of never seeing their loved ones on earth again.
