By Starship or station
- The starship USS Voyager departs Deep Space 9 on a mission to find the Maquis raider Val Jean. Both ships are thrown seventy-five thousand light years into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker. The Caretaker's array, the only means home, is later destroyed by Captain Kathryn Janeway in order to protect the Ocampa and the two crews are forced to work together to find a route back to the Alpha Quadrant. (VOY: "Caretaker")
- Several crewmembers on Voyager, including first officer Cavit, flight control officer Stadi, the chief medical officer, and the chief engineer, are killed during the transit to the Delta Quadrant. (VOY: "Caretaker")
- Voyager makes first contact with the Ocampa, Talaxians, and Kazon. (VOY: "Caretaker")
- Neelix and Kes join the Voyager crew. (VOY: "Caretaker")
- Voyager approaches an M-class planet. Kes enters the bridge, reporting a vision of a planet being destroyed. She is relieved to find out that the planet is teeming with life. It appeared to be a pre-warp civilization, so Captain Janeway makes a note in the log and orders Voyager to continue towards the Alpha Quadrant. (VOY: "Time and Again")
- Originally, Voyager discovered the class M planet devastated by an explosion that happened the previous day due to the detonation of polaric ion energy. Captain Janeway and Tom Paris were thrown back in time before the explosion by a subspace fracture. The Voyager crew attempts to rescue them by opening a fracture with a polaric generator but cause the original explosion and destroy all life on the planet, including the captain. Janeway resets time by closing the fracture before it causes the explosion. This creates a new timeline in which Voyager never went to the planet and the civilization is spared. (VOY: "Time and Again")
- Voyager discovers a micro-wormhole. The crew sends in a microprobe, which reveals the wormhole leads to the Alpha Quadrant. Voyager, using the probe as a relay for a message, contacts a Romulan science vessel named Talvath, commanded by Telek R'Mor. However, it is later found out that the wormhole is a rift through time and that R'Mor is from the year 2351. After some consideration, R'Mor agrees to take the crew's personal messages with him and deliver them to Starfleet at the appropriate time. R'Mor is later discovered to have died in 2367 and the messages were apparently never delivered to Starfleet. (VOY: "Eye of the Needle", "Message in a Bottle")
- Voyager's Tom Paris is convicted of murdering the Banean Tolen Ren. After much evidence gathering, Tuvok is able to prove Paris' innocence and reveals a Numiri plot to steal Ren's technology. (VOY: "Ex Post Facto")
- Kes travels to this year from five years in the original version of the future. She attempts to give the crew of Voyager to the Vidiians in exchange for safe passage for her future and present self to Ocampa. Her plan fails and Janeway is forced to kill Kes. Kes then makes a holographic projection to prevent her future self from going back in time, thus changing history. (VOY: "Fury")

However, their plan is thwarted by Miles O'Brien, who had foreseen the future and warned Benjamin Sisko. (DS9: "Visionary")
- The Cardassian Obsidian Order, together with the Romulan Tal Shiar, are lured into a trap when they attack the Founders' homeworld in the Gamma Quadrant.
