Kathryn Janeway's first assignment as captain of the U.S.S. Voyager was to capture the crew of a renegade Maquis vessel. While in pursuit, both Janeway's ship and that of the Maquis were swept into the distant Delta quadrant by powerful alien technology. Stranded 70,000 light-years from Earth, Janeway convinced the Maquis to join her Starfleet crew and serve together during the long voyage home. The daughter of a Starfleet admiral, Janeway is a skilled science officer. She has a deep passion for fresh-brewed coffee.
