Go behind the scenes of the making of a television classic, with the cast and crew who brought the adventures of the intrepid U.S.S. Voyager to life. Packed with in-depth features on each creative department, from visual effects and art to costume and makeup, this volume celebrates STAR TREK's epic adventure in the Delta Quadrant. Alongside production and concept art, the cast - including Kate Mulgrew and Jeri Ryan - share their personal highlights from seven seasons and 172 episodes of STAR TREK: VOYAGER.
STAR TREK: VOYAGER was groundbreaking. It was the first STAR TREK show with a female captain and had the franchise's most diverse cast. It pushed the boundaries of visual effects and makeup further than ever before, and literally took the show into new territory when Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant, home of the Borg Collective.
STAR TREK: VOYAGER - A CELEBRATION tells the behind-the-scenes story of Voyager's epic journey, from its earliest origins and pivotal episodes to in- depth features on writing, directing, visual effects, production art and more.
The ultimate guide to the making of a television classic, based on more than 30 new interviews, featuring the nine principal cast members, including Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan, and Robert Picardo, and key behind-the-scenes personnel who reveal the stories and secrets behind the show. STAR TREK: VOYAGER first appeared on TV on 16 January 1995, running for 172 episodes over seven seasons.

Brimming with behind the scenes stories (only some of which I knew!), gorgeous photos and rare production design drawings, it gives a real sense of the creative individuals behind the show as well as the familiar actors onscreen.

Star Trek Voyager: A Celebration is a delightful trip down memory lane.

We are so proud to have been part of that amazing family, and for the opportunity - through your book - to take a trip down memory lane aboard the good ship Voyager. - Star Trek production veterans Michael Okuda (graphic designer) and Denise Okuda (scenic artist and computer/video supervisor)
Time travel is possible, and it does not necessitate a slingshot around the sun, nor does it call for an Atavachron. Here in this book, captured as if in amber, slices of Star Trek Voyager, held in suspended animation, and when ingested through photonic dispersion, can cause your temporal lobe to vibrate at exactly the same frequency as high-energy alpha-driven chronotons, and off you go... - Doug Drexler, Star Trek makeup artist, concept artist, and visual effects artist. Doug won an Oscar for his work on Dick Tracy, founded the Federation Trading Post and designed the Enterprise NX-01
