We're alone, in an uncharted part of the galaxy. We've already made some friends here, and some enemies. We have no idea of the dangers we're going to face, but one thing is clear. Both crews are going to have to work together if we're to survive. That's why Commander Chakotay and I have agreed that this should be one crew: a Starfleet crew. And as the only Starfleet vessel assigned to the Delta Quadrant, we'll continue to follow our directive to seek out new worlds and explore space. But our primary goal is clear. Even at maximum speeds, it would take 75 years to reach the Federation, but I'm not willing to settle for that. There's another entity like the Caretaker out there somewhere, who has the ability to get us there a lot faster. We'll be looking for her, and we'll be looking for wormholes, spatial rifts, or new technologies to help us. Somewhere, along this journey, we'll find a way back. Mister Paris, set a course… for home.
~ Kathryn Janeway's Speech to her crew as they navigate the dangers of the Delta Quadrant.

Kathryn Janeway is the captain of the USS Voyager and the main protagonist of Star Trek: Voyager. She took command of the starship voyager in order to locate a missing Maquis vessel, the Val Jean.


Janeway and her crew, aboard the USS Voyager were flung 70,000 light years into the Delta Quadrant. She tells her crew that they will begin their own joruney for their seven year return back to the Alpha Quadrant. She is encountered with Q and a female version of Q. She was captured by the borg, but she eventually returned back to the starship voyager. After Kes's departure, she allows Seven of Nine to the voyager crew. She and her crew discovered another starship that was flung into the Delta Quadrant, the USS Equinox.

She was captured by the Quarren, but she was freed.

In the end, she and her crew finally headed back to the Alpha Quadrant, with the help of a future version of herself. Voyager was able to inflict heavy damage on the Borg, and using a Borg transwarp conduit travelled back to Sector 001 from the Delta Quadrant. Fearing a Borg incursion, a task force was sent to intercept the Borg sphere that came out, which was destroyed by Voyager. This fleet escorted Janeway and her crew back home.

Shortly after Janeway returned to Earth, she was promoted to Vice Admiral by Admiral Owen Paris. She took an assignment at Starfleet Command while the newly promoted Captain Chakotay was given command of Voyager. In 2379 she ordered Captain Jean-Luc Picard to proceed to Romulus to meet with the new Romulan Praetor Shinzon.


  • In the first two seasons of Star Trek: Voyager, Janeway has long hair and wears it in a updo, in Season 3, she wears her hair in a hair-clipped ponytail and in Season 4 and for the remainder of the series, Janeway's hair is short and wears her hair loose.
  • "Parturition" is the first episode of Star Trek: Voyager where Janeway wears her hair loose instead of wearing it in an updo as it would not happen again until Season 4 onward.
