1x01/1x02 "Caretaker" - The starship Voyager, in pursuit of a band of Maquis resistance fighters, is pulled 75,000 light years across the galaxy by a mysterious alien 'caretaker.' Captain Kathryn Janeway is forced to make a moral decision to help the Caretaker to save the kindly Ocampa race, making enemies of the vicious Kazon and stranding Voyager and the Maquis ship decades from home. For all the flak 'Voyager' takes, "Caretaker" isn't a bad episode. Sure, the cast isn't all that great, but it's pretty well-written and features some very fine special effects and production design. At least this early in the game, the antagonistic feelings between the Maquis and Starfleet crew are fun. Even Neelix is far less annoying than I remember him being later on in the series.
