The Last Great Star Trek

“For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see; Saw the Vision of the World, and all the wonder that would be”
— Alfred Tennyson

Captain Janeway finds herself 70,000 light years away from home and is tasked with the unenviable task of making the potentially 75 year long journey home. USS Voyager is a smaller intrepid class starship as opposed to the galaxy class starships Kirk and Picard commanded and was never meant to undertake such an odyssey.

We come across new species in the Delta Quadrant and watch the intrepid, ragtag crew of Star Fleet and Maki come together and stare down their adversaries. Eventually Seven of Nine joins the ship and we get to witness, not only their journey home, but also her journey of self-discovery and humanization.

This was the last great Star Trek. Every Star Trek after Voyager was a blemish on the name of Star Trek. Captain Kathryn Janeway leading her ship and crew back home will be the last Star Trek I cherish. The last Star Trek that had relatable characters and actual storylines with coherent plots that did not betray canon.
