See The Voyager-B Just Unveiled By Star Trek, Successor To Janeway’s Ship

Get a close look at the Voyager-J, secretly revealed in Star Trek: Picard season 3 episode 1.

Star Trek: Picard has returned for a third season and, in the process, made some big changes to the style and tone of the show. In particular they seem to be making more of a point to focus on the world’s starships, to make them characters, and actually put enough effort and budget into making them look good. They’ve even created new ships for the show, ships like the Voyager-B.

If you’ve already seen Star Trek: Picard season 3 episode 1 you’re probably wondering how you missed seeing the Voyager-B. Here’s the shot where it appeared…

Whether we’ll see more of the ship in the series remains to be seen, but the design is one that was originally created for the game Star Trek: Online. Now that the Voyager-B has appeared in an actual episode of Star Trek, though, it is officially canon.

We still haven’t seen the Voyager-A, though Star Trek: Prodigy has teased us with a possible appearance by it in Season 2. Star Trek: Picard takes place quite a few years after the events of Prodigy, so it’s not crazy to assume that the Voyager-A might have been destroyed or retired by then, necessitating the launch of Voyager-B.

Here’s the classic Voyager, as captained by Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager for nostalgic comparison…

As hardcore Star Trek fans know, only the most important ships in Starfleet get their names carried on to the newest model. After the wild events of Janeway and her crew in the Delta Quadrant, the Voyager name certainly would deserve to live on.

In fact, we already know the Voyager name lives on long past the Voyager-B. In a previous episode of Star Trek: Discovery (which takes place hundreds of years further in the future), we got a look at the Voyager-J. Here she is…
