Plot: The year is 2371. The Federation starship Voyager, chasing down terrorists (the Maquis, hinted at in ST: E, and DS9), gets transported by a powerful alien being to the other side of the Galaxy, the Delta Quadrant, far away from any Federation space, known fuel or food supplies. Their main goal is survival and eventually returning home (Earth), a journey which will take 75 years at Voyager's top warp speed. Why Should I Watch It?: The constant struggle of survival in a strange place, bringing order to chaos, and finding hope amidst hopelessness, family among strangers... the dichotomies go on. Uses "realistic" future technology and science. The engrossing plotlines and character development. Universal themes being constantly challenged and expanded. Social commentary incisively relevant to the human condition. This show will force you look at the universe in shades of grey. Visually stunning fight scenes and combat strategies (lazers pew pew). The Borg! You will fall in love with all of the characters despite, or perhaps because of, their flaws. If you are an idealist and/or a free-thinker, this is the Sci-Fi show for you. It is less about the operation of the Federation, and more about the ideals of the Federation (and transitively, humanity), and why they are worth upholding.
