1.01 Caretaker

While pursuing a Maquis ship lost in the Badlands, Voyager encounters a displacement wave which throws the vessel 70,000 light years from Federation space. Janeway asks the Maquis for help in discovering where they are and how they got there. Upon learning that the array responsible for their trip to the Delta Quadrant will be used to eradicate a nearby civilization, Janeway elects to destroy the technology instead of returning home.
