Discuss Star Trek: Voyager

I noticed in the show, they always had them going from the Delta Quadrant straight to the Alpha Quadrant. It's not like their route was going to take them through the center of the galaxy (they wouldn't want to run into God after all), so they would have had to cut through some part of the Beta Quadrant. It's like they forgot about the Beta Quadrant to simplify things. Anyone else notice this, or am I thinking about it wrong?

They never encountered Beta or another area because they used the BORG contraption (called a TRANSWARP HUB or APERTURE) as a way to get back home again.

You can see it in END GAME (the 2 PART SERIES FINALE of the show).


Seven of Nine reveals the structure is a transwarp hub, one of only six in the galaxy. Angered that the Admiral didn't tell her about this, she orders the ship out of the nebula.

The crew learns the hub connects thousands of transwarp conduits to endpoints in every quadrant of the galaxy, perhaps the most significant tactical advantage the Borg have. Captain Janeway wants to know how to destroy it. But Admiral Janeway strongly objects to any such attempt, and insists on taking the ship home ...

In the Alpha Quadrant, Admiral Paris and the present-day Barclay detect a transwarp aperture opening up less than a light-year from Earth, and every ship in range is ordered to converge there. In the collapsing transwarp corridor, a Borg Sphere bears down on Voyager as its armor begins to fail. Captain Janeway orders Lt. Paris to adjust course. The Borg Sphere emerges into the Alpha Quadrant and Starfleet vessels begin firing upon it. But then it explodes in a spectacular fireball, and Voyager emerges from within the debris intact. Admiral Paris welcomes Janeway back home ...
