Voyager responds to a distress call, only to find it's from a Malon ship in distress. They find two survivors in life pods, who speak of a mythical radioactive beast that they believe, caused their ship to become disabled. What Voyager's crew discovers while trying to fix the Malon ship is even more shocking than a mythical monster.
While chasing a renegade Maquis ship in the Badlands, the USS Voyager and the Maquis ship they are chasing are pulled into a vortex, which sends them instantly to the Delta Quadrant. However, after the destruction of the device that transported them to the Delta Quadrant, the crew of Voyager and the crew of the Maquis ship must join together to fight their way back to their home in the Alpha quadrant, which is many years away. They will meet many foes and many obstacles along the way, but they will also bond as a crew, between those of the Maquis and those of Starfleet.
