Notes : In her early career, Janeway served as Science officer on the USS Al-Batani under Captain Paris. However, her greatest fame so far has come from her predicament as Captain of the USS Voyager. This ship was believed to have been lost in the Badlands on one of her first missions; however, in 2374 Voyagers Emergency Medical Hologram was transmitted through an alien communications array onto the USS Prometheus. The EMH reported that Voyager had in fact been transported to the Delta quadrant by an alien being known as "the Caretaker". The Caretaker had kidnapped both Voyager and a Maquis vessel to secure subjects for its attempts to procreate itself. Voyager subsequently became involves in hostilities with the Kazon, during which the Maquis ship and the Caretakers space station where destroyed.

Since this time, Voyager has been making her way home - a trip which was originally expected to take some seventy years. The ship has faced many difficulties on this journey, including attacks by the various Kazon sects, the Borg, and Species 8472. Captain Janeway granted the Maquis members the status of provisional Starfleet personnel and has successfully integrated the group into her own crew.

During her time in the Delta Quadrant, Janeway has established herself as a controversial leader. She has risked her ship and crew on points of principle many times, while on other occasions casting those principles aside. On one occasion she decided to trespass on the territory of The Swarm in order to avoid a detour of several months, leading to an attack on Voyager by the aliens.

Probably the most controversial of Janeways decisions came when Tuvok and Neelix were combined into a single individual, Tuvix, by a transporter accident. Although Tuvix was clearly a new individual with his own existence and a strongly expressed wish to live, Janeway decided to terminate his life in order to recover her officers, despite once claiming to the Vidiians that killing one to save another was reprehensible to her. A similar incident occurred when Janeway decided to disregard Lieutenant Torres's wish not to be treated by a medical holographic consultant based on a Cardassian doctor, ordering the procedure to carry on regardless.

Despite these failings Janeway commands great loyalty from her crew and has been remarkably successful in her attempts to return to the Alpha Quadrant, covering some 35,000 light years in just six years.
