You could probably chart it off Memory Alpha.

Oh, wait - you want a reason to go back and rewatch it all, right?

I do, but then I'm still a star trek baby and have just received Season 2 of DS9 through from Amazon, so I guess I should start on that.

I could probably do it quite quickly by just checking out the back of the DVDs as I would know which ones had the big jumps and which ones didn't. But that might be boring. Back to plan A... watch the whole lot again!

So much star trek to learn about... so little time....

I have found the answer in Memory Alpha. The combination of jumps etc came to 48100 light years off their original 70000 light year journey. This leaves 22000 light years to travel in 23 years.

Given that they didn't travel at warp 9.75 all the way, I will concede that 23 years was probably not a bad time in which to make the journey. though they must have not run into many wormholes or new technologies in the last 16 years.

Of course, if they did take a wrong turn at least they had a female captain who would pull over and ask for directions.

I find it's best just to enjoy the story when it comes to Star Trek and not get to wrapped up in warp speed and distance. Warp Speed has never been handled with any kind of regularity. On memory alpha they state that according to some of the warp speed charts, Voyager should have been able to make it home in something like a month.

Indeed, VOY created the formula of 1000 lightyears per year at sustainable full speed to make it easy to know at once how many years the journey shortened when the ship went e.g. through a wormhole and left 10.000 light years behind.
Those jumps in the middle of VOY were done to create an atmosphere of hope and of course to have the possibility of another few jumps that lead a "normal" homecoming in the seventh season.
