Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Star Trek: Voyager is the third "Next Generation" Star Trek series, running for seven seasons from January 1995 through May 2001.The double-length pilot episode saw the USS Voyager, under the command of Captain Kathryn Janeway, called in to apprehend a paramilitary group led by Chakotay, a renegade Starfleet officer. In the midst of trying to locate him, Voyager was yanked across the galaxy by an alien known as the Caretaker, who was also responsible for abducting Chakotay's ship. During a battle with the Kazon, the local space-faring thugs, Janeway destroyed the device that had abducted them rather than let it be misused. This had the effect of now stranding both crews in the Delta Quadrant, on the other side of the galaxy, seventy-five years' travel time from home.For the next seven seasons, Voyager looked for a shortcut back to Earth while dodging or battling an assortment of nogoodniks within the Delta region. For the sake of familiarity, they also crossed swords with a pair of Ferengi who had been zapped to the Delta Quadrant back in Next Generation, the Q Continuum, assorted Romulans and Cardassians, a diaspora of Klingons on a pilgrimage of sorts, and even a rogue Starfleet vessel which was also kidnapped by the Caretaker. To make matters worse, the Delta Quadrant happens to be the home of the Borg Collective.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The show had a high turnover of both writers and actors. Season One offered up a promising mish-mash of crewmen with sketchier backgrounds than those of TOS or TNG, with pasts as rebels, convicts, con men, or (later) Borg drones. By Season Three, the show was retooled into something more suitable for family viewing, and the producers had found a winning formula (in keeping with the late-nineties fantasy TV boom) in embracing the sillier aspects of Starfleet life.To an even greater extent than Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Voyager very much represented an Actionized Sequel for the Trek franchise. This was aided in large part by the Delta Quadrant being seemingly the most savage of the four Quadrants; nearly every race the Voyager Crew meet is as xenophobic as they are powerful. The series also toyed with improved CGI effects and a couple of two-part telemovies featuring the Borg.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })See also the Star Trek: Voyager Relaunch for the show's continuation in novel form.The first Star Trek: Elite Force PC game takes place during this show, and the actors provide their voices for their counterparts (barring Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, until an expansion pack including her was released).Star Trek: Picard serves as a sequel series, with Jeri Ryan reprising the role of Seven of Nine. The Show Within a Show The Adventures of Captain Proton has its own work page.

Limited Advancement Opportunities
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_1042bae6
comment
Limited Advancement Opportunities: Perennial Ensign Harry Kim was a victim of this, even though Janeway did promote Tuvok from Lieutenant to Lieutenant-Commander in season four. This carried some implications of favoritism, as Tuvok was a long-time personal friend of Janeway's. He also had to deal with former Maquis members like B'Elanna Torres leapfrogging over him in rank.

Bizarre Alien Biology
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_1161fb48
comment
Bizarre Alien Biology: Kes (nine-year lifespan, telepathy, gives birth from a sac on her back, and when she reaches sexual maturity you rub her feet until her tongue swells up), Species 8472 (tripedal, five sexes, densely-coded DNA, emits a biogenic field that blocks scanning, and has an immune system that can stop Borg nanoprobes). But nothing tops the cytoplasmic lifeform in "Nothing Human". The Universal Translator can't understand its language, the tricorder can't comprehend its biology, it controls a spaceship via biochemical secretions, can leap through a forcefield in a single bound, and uses B'Elanna Torres as an emergency life-support system.

Voyager has Neural Gel Packs, which were probably intended to act like organic brains or at least small computers. Supposedly they were cutting-edge tech, as Voyager was an advanced ship when it was completed. Of course, they were used several times as a plot complication generator by having them "get an infection." Janeway eventually ordered Torres to replace them with conventional circuits, but the ship never seemed to be any less cutting-edge afterward.

Overranked Soldier: Inverted. Ensign Harry Kim should've gotten an automatic promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade at the eighteen-month mark at the latest. On the other hand in "Datalore", Data says he spent three years an Ensign, and presumably he was one of the more efficient candidates. However Tuvok is promoted in Season 4, so it's not like Limited Advancement Opportunities are totally in place. When Tom Paris is demoted to Ensign in "Thirty Days", he gets his pip back before Harry does, a fact that the latter points out.

My Friends... and Zoidberg
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_13646b1b
comment
My Friends... and Zoidberg: The Doctor makes a lot of these types of jokes at Tom Paris's expense. In the opening of "Year of Hell Part 1", the Doctor is moved to a speech that delivers one of these from out of nowhere. In another early episode, the Doctor was discussing with Kes his problems: he was built as an emergency software for special cases and now has to be available 24 hours a day, everyone treats him as he did not even exist, nobody tells him what's going on, nobody remembers to shut hm when leaving, he has nobody to assist him... Kes pointed that Paris was assigned to be his nurse. "Like I said, nobody to assist me". In "Living Witness", the Doctor wakes up in the future to find that the historians of that era have painted a rather unflattering picture of their ancestors' run-in with the Voyager crew, and depicted them all as evil, violent lunatics. When he protests this, he follows it up by singling out Paris as not having been that different in real life from the way he's portrayed in the recreation (which is more cocky than evil).

The Artifact
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_13d7a65e
comment
The Artifact: Neelix was originally supposed to be Voyager's guide through the Delta Quadrant as well as Kes's love interest. However, he quickly became the ship's cook and comic relief, rarely being of any real use when it came to navigation or preparing Voyager for the dangers of the Delta Quadrant. The trope came into full effect in Season 3 and 4, as Voyager had moved on from the area of space he was familiar with, making him useless as a guide, and Kes's full powers emerged, forcing her to leave the ship. The show tried to keep him relevant by making him the ship's ambassador and "morale officer" but while this gave him a little Character Development, it did little to give Neelix an important role in the series.

Multinational Team: While it's logical that the Federation, with its incredibly diverse population, would have more than one race on board, it's clear that the casting department went well, well out of their way to try and avoid Monochrome Casting. The crew is led by a single white female and consists of a Native American first officer, a Klingon-Hispanic chief engineer, an Asian ops officer, an black Vulcan security chief, and a white male helmsman. In other words, no two top-ranking officers on board possess the same race/gender combination.

comment
Darker and Edgier: While all Trek shows loved to juggle sweeping drama and sci-fi horror with frothy comedy, the pendulum swung to even farther extremes in this case. Janeway was shown on multiple occasions to be willing to contradict her principles, form dubious alliances, and trade dangerous technology to shorten Voyager's trip. There are also numerous episodes where the crew gets messily killed, usually involving time travel, holograms or cloning.

"Year of Hell". Janeway's fun begins when Voyager bumbles its way into a sector divvied up between the Krenim and their soon-to-be-nullified rivals. The Krenim border guard goes from a mouse screaming at a lion ("I hope you have something bigger in those torpedo tubes?" — Janeway) before the shockwave hits to a smug fascist afterwards; the shift in his performance tells you everything you need to know about what has happened.

Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: "Flesh and Blood" — holograms who Turned Against Their Masters and Fighting for a Homeland end up encouraging a Man Versus Machine crusade. Chakotay worries they're doing this in "Scorpion", forming an Enemy Mine alliance with the Borg that will only help them assimilate another species. And their Evil Counterpart Equinox ended up doing this when their desperation overcame their Starfleet ethics.

Heel–Face Door-Slam: Jetrel wanted to prove that his research can be used to heal as well as kill, and when he tried to convince his people to give this a try they exiled him as a Talaxian sympathiser. It was too late to stop what he set in motion. He tries bringing back the dead Talaxian culture via a transporter experiment — almost as if he's reloading them back into existence — but the test fails and Jetrel succumbs to his health issues before he can try again.

 Star Trek: Voyager / int_1621af29
comment
They were actually Dan Browned by a consultant. They recruited someone named Jamake Highwater who claimed to be an expert on Native American culture. However, it turned out he was a con artist whose only knowledge of Native American culture came from movies. The producers didn't find this out until much later, sadly. At the time, they thought they were getting a reasonably authentic Native American character (as authentic as one could be in the 24th century, in-universe there was a bit of a revival of old traditions among Native American descendants). Of course, that just makes it a Critical Research Failure as no-one even thought to question the "expert" or verify what he said; he'd actually been publicly exposed nearly a decade earlier.

Evil vs. Evil: The war between Species 8472 and the Borg. The Borg seek to assimilate all life in the galaxy into their collective. Species 8472 seeks to exterminate the impure, meaning every species except for them. Subverted when Species 8472 only seeks to commit genocide because they believe that every alien species is as hostile as the Borg. Once Chakotay convinces them otherwise, they agree to leave our galaxy alone.

"Well Done, Son!" Guy: Tom Paris' father Owen Paris was a Starfleet admiral and Tom never felt that he could live up to his reputation. Things were strained between them and only became worse once Tom had joined the Maquis and then ended up in a Federation penal colony. It was only after the Voyager got lost in the Delta Quadrant and later established communications to Earth that the two re-connected, especially once Tom and B'Elanna became a couple and had a child. In the novels, things became strained between them again due to circumstances in part beyond Tom's control and Owen died in a Borg attack.

The Worf Effect: Ironically, the Borg are on the receiving end of this in "Scorpion" when Species 8472 are introduced. Contributed to the Villain Decay of the Borg, but this trope was for once done right with the opening to this two-parter - seeing the show open with two cubes being instantly blown away, then going straight to the intro with no shot of what did this, let the viewer know that this really was a very powerful and dangerous enemy.

Visionary Villain: Karr, the Alpha Hirogen who takes control of Voyager in "The Killing Game Parts 1 & 2," realizes that his species' obsession with the hunt has caused their civilization and culture to stagnate. He hopes that holodeck technology will allow the Hirogen to rebuild their society while continuing the hunt. This... sorta works, until they decide to turn it up to "Hard" mode and turn off the safeties, because "It wasn't real enough." This lead to the entire thing turning into a slaughter.

Artistic License – Biology
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_18aff462
comment
Artistic License – Biology: In the episode "Macrocosm" we have viruses(!) which can grow in size - up to a meter, fly, and hover in the air. It turns out that they somehow could do it by taking an alien growth hormone. The Ocampans (Kes' race) In Voyager, can only reproduce once, and have one child. No species could evolve such a trait and thrive. EVERY member of the race would to reproduce to have 0 population growth. If any member of the race dies, then the race as a whole has taken a blow it cannot recover from. They also have a life span of nine years which would only exacerbate their rapid depopulation. The Drayans manage to top the Ocampa on how biologically implausible they are. They age backwards, so the "children" Tuvok was caring for were actually their elderly. The gestation process of such a species would be highly nonsensical with "children" being born as adult seniors.

Gone Horribly Right: In "Year of Hell", Annorax uses his timeship to erase one of the Krenim Imperium's enemies. The Imperium becomes a mighty interstellar power again- and then a plague kills millions, because that enemy had introduced an antibody into the Krenim genome many generations before that would have provided resistance to the plague.

comment
There is debate over other telepaths on the crew. There was at least one other Vulcan (Vorik), as well as a psychically-handicapped Betazoid, Lon Suder, who was not telepathic as is the norm for his species. A female Vulcan and a female Betazoid also appeared amongst the extras, but were never mentioned otherwise. Although at least on the surface it would appear that Janeway had the most telepaths aboard her ship out of any Trek captain, she almost never had reliable telepathic backup when it would have been useful.

Forgotten Phlebotinum: Voyager's official policy was "if it doesn't work immediately and perfectly, shelve the entire idea and never mention it again". Most gratuitous was the transwarp drive in "Threshold", which worked fine apart from the surprisingly easy to treat "becoming a giant space salamander" side-effect, but which was never used even after they found a cure for the salamander thing.

The Main Characters Do Everything
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_1c9537cd
comment
The Main Characters Do Everything: A Star Trek staple, really, but Voyager really takes it to the next level. Don't be surprised if Janeway decides to fly off the ship with her first officer on routine patrol duty, leaving the impulsive and unreliable Half-Klingon rebel in command. This is critiqued by both the First Officer and Lt. Commander in "Night". Off-screen, Tuvok asides to Chakotay that the Captain doesn't like to delegate and has a history of recklessly endangering her own life. Tuvok chalks it up to simple guilt for stranding them in the Delta Quadrant. It should also be noted that, despite having a number of higher ranking officers on board, Janeway's team of people who run Voyager and help her make tactical decisions only include the main cast. This includes Harry, a first year ensign, Neelix, the ship's cook and a former scavenger, and Kes, a one year Ocampa who is essentially a Tagalong Kid. Despite Voyager being noted as having 150 on board, give or take, one may get the impression that only the main cast exist due to how much sheer screen time they occupy.

"The Killing Game", opens with Voyager having been seized by the Hirogen and the crew forced into Deadly Games on the holodeck. It's Harry Kim, not the Spotlight-Stealing Squad, who kicks off La Résistance, which is only appropriate as the main holodeck program featured is a WW2 French Resistance scenario.

"Alice" in the episode of the same name. She's a Sentient Vehicle that establishes a direct neural link to her pilots—Tom Paris in this case—to better control them. She appears as a beautiful woman who is only visible to Tom (an alien who sold the ship is shown to see her as a female member of his own species), and is psychotically possessive of her owner.

MST3K Mantra

MST3K Mantra: Invoked in "Timeless" — Harry Kim tries to make sense of how the future version of himself could have sent the present-day Seven of Nine instructions on how to save the ship, since the future Harry's timeline was erased and he will not exist to send the instructions, resulting in an apparent Grandfather Paradox. Janeway just tells him not to bother trying to work it out, since he'll likely only succeed in giving himself a headache. Also used in "Deadlock", where Voyager gets split into two different versions, and the "original" version of Harry Kim is killed by a hull breach early in the story. At the story's climax the other Voyager is destroyed, but that ship's version of Harry (and Naomi Wildman, who ended up being stillborn in the other universe due to the accident happening during her birth) is sent over just before its destruction. This leads Harry to suffer an existential crisis about whether he's really Harry Kim or just a copy of him, leading Janeway to tell him that he's real enough, and add the following zinger:

White Man's Burden
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_1effdd6b

This angle played into the Kazons' story very early on. The Kazon were once a Slave Race employed by their white masters, the Trabe, and it's stated that the entire galaxy now rues the day their earned their freedom (erm....). The Kazon are a confused mess of storytelling by writers who intended it as a commentary on redlined city districts and the cycle of crime, but for whatever reason, the species fell back into the famliar "Warlike Alien" role which Trek is used to, and their oppressors were painted with a softer brush. Somebody obviously took notice of this, and sought to rectify it with other races.

Emotional Maturity Is Physical Maturity
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_200422a4
comment
Emotional Maturity Is Physical Maturity: The Doctor, and the Ocampa. Seven and Icheb also count, as both were artificially aged physically and mentally from early childhood in Borg maturation chambers. Icheb in particular should actually be a young boy, but generally behaves like the fairly mature young adult he appears as. Q Junior plays with this trope. Although he is an omnipotent being from a higher plane of existence capable of assuming any shape he likes, he appears in the form of a human boy in his late-teens, and acts exactly the way a teenage human boy would, if given unlimited control of space, matter and time. Then again, his father appears as a middle-aged man but usually acts like a teenager too, so it is clearly a case of parental issues.

Chekhov's Gun: The neural transceivers in "Scorpion". The Borg attempt to use them on Janeway and Tuvok in order to link their thoughts to the hive mind; Chakotay later uses one to link his thoughts with Seven of Nine to distract her. In "Revulsion," on a Serosian starship, the hologram Dejaren is serving Torres a tray of food when he nearly steps on a considerable power cord exposed at one end. Torres had to warn him to "Watch out!" Later, when the hologram turned homicidal and corners Torres, she uses said power cord to destroy him.

The concept is discussed in an early episode, with Neelix needing to be introduced to the idea when various crew members ask him to cook comfort foods to help cope with the stress of being stranded in the Delta Quadrant. Unfortunately he's a Cordon Bleugh Chef due to being more familiar with Alien Lunches, so his success tends to vary.

For Science!: Oddly a mass murdering scientist is far more chipper than Voyager's Doctor was in Season One! David Clennon imbues Crell Moset with all the serene arrogance that the character demands. For his barbaric surgeries on Bajoran laborers he was rewarded with a prestigious university chair and helped stamp out a deadly epidemic. In an obvious nod to Oppenheimer, Neelix asks Jetrel if he regrets what he did to the Talaxians, but he offers no apologies for his work — merely sympathy that his creation had a bigger and more historic effect than he anticipated. He makes a distinction between him developing the weapon and the government deciding to use it for warfare, and Neelix asks quietly if that helps him to sleep at night. Jetrel did it to know that it could be done. He lost his wife and children because they thought he had become a monster, when really he's just a government shill who did what he was told.

Janeway enters a holodeck program that was apparently going to turn out to be a ghost story, but this got dropped due to fan disinterest. It didn't help that the story was being told slowly over the teasers for several episodes, and (except in "Persistence of Vision") had nothing to do with the episode itself.

Only Sane Man: Often this is either Tom Paris, or the Doctor. When as the Emergency Command Hologram in the episode "Workforce", the Doctor's first response to being told that Voyager will be boarded and forcibly seized, is to immediately open fire and cripple the enemy ship. In comparison, Janeway and Chakotay usually only return fire when the shields are down to 24% and several consoles have exploded. The Doctor's reaction in "Time and Again" when he realises no-one informed him that Voyager was now carrying two alien passengers, Neelix and Kes. Oh and 80 Maquis now serve as part of the new crew. And he can't contact Captain Janeway because she's down on the planet below. Oh... and she is currently missing.

Captain Ersatz
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_25b5600
comment
Captain Ersatz: Originally the writers wanted to include the guest character of "Cadet Nicholas Locarno" from the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The First Duty" as a regular. To avoid paying royalties to the writers of that episode — and because Locarno was seen as fundamentally unredeemable — a Captain Ersatz in the person of Tom Paris was created. Not only do both characters have a very similar backstory and personality, both are played by Robert Duncan McNeill as well. Once Seven of Nine joined up, the show rolled out a new rogues gallery. Some of these newcomers take inspiration from popular eighties sci-fi films. The Malon are a recycling of Baron Harkonnen from David Lynch's Dune, with skin lesions, rubber spacesuits, thinning ginger hair, and a planet renowned for its pollution. The Hirogen are a self-admitted expy of Predator, even appearing with a mask in their first appearance. The homage breaks down a bit in "The Killing Game", in which the Hirogen leader (who is unusually erudite for his kind) tries to civilize his people by weaning them off "the Hunt". Even after DS9 wrapped, the borrowing from Babylon 5 wasn't quite over yet. Substitute "Species 8472 bioship" => "Shadow Battlecrab" and you'll get the picture. From certain angles, the Krenim WeaponShip in "Year of Hell" looks a helluva lot like Babylon 5 trying to annihilate the starship Voyager. How apropos. "Counterpoint" offers another riff on PsiCorp, with similarly-dressed bad guys on the hunt for fugitive telepaths.

Failure Is the Only Option
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_260926c3
comment
In “Timeless”, Voyager makes improvements to the warp drive that would get them home in a couple of days, thus ending the show. The new drive creates a Quantum Slipstream that the ship would ride through, but the simulations keep having the ship blow up because it can’t compensate for the fluctuations in the Slipstream. Harry solves this problem by riding ahead of Voyager in the Slipstream in a smaller shuttle craft. He would take readings, calculate for fluctuations, and send those back to Voyager. This is pure nonsense for a lot of reasons, but the one that sticks out (and blew up the ship) was that Harry made the calculations himself instead of programing the computer to do it, which would have saved all the time and prevented all the mistakes. A problem that was not lost on the writers when, in the episode “Fury”, Janeway points out that the computer can plot vectors “a bit faster” than Tom, who is plotting them manually.

Funny Background Event: In the early episode "The Cloud", The Doctor is on a viewscreen in the background giving information about a nebula, and then starts ranting about how the ship's presence is affecting it. Janeway "mutes" the viewscreen, then she and the other officers continue discussing about the nebula. At first, The Doctor continues ranting about the nebula, until he realizes he's on "mute". He gets annoyed and starts pacing around his office for a good minute and a half◊ before Tom Paris informs Janeway that The Doctor is still on viewscreen. Janeway finally "un-mutes" him. In the same episode, Janeway hunts in the background for coffee while other main characters give exposition.

In her reckless attempts to combat him, Captain Janeway starts to believe that Voyager is "testing" her, and winds up scarring her face and body with burn marks that the Doctor is unable to erase with his makeshift tools.

Lieutenant/Ensign Ayala, a background character who appeared in more episodes than many of the main cast.

His name was rarely mentioned, and in a couple of cases, it was made deliberately unclear as to specifically who was being addressed. He did speak, albiet rarely, but in one case, this was over the comm, further obscuring his identity. We can surmise that this guy sure was the most important crew member who we never got to know.

Background Halo: In the episode "The Chute", there's a close-up shot of one of the prisoners who's figured out the secret of the aggression implants where the force field ring surrounding the bottom end of the chute frames the top of his head, appearing as both a halo and a pair of horns.

Lampshade Hanging
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_2a090d00
comment
Seven of Nine's parents. A pair of scientists who plan to study the Borg by sneaking onto Borg Cubes. This could be considered TDTL all on its own, but they also bring their young daughter along with them on their expedition. The Doctor actually gives this a Lampshade Hanging by expressing his disgust over their blatant disregard for their daughter's well-being by bringing her along on such a dangerously idiotic quest.

Villainous Gentrification: Subverted.

Plot Armor
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_2a44899
comment
Plot Armor: Standard issue for the main characters, per usual on Trek, but VOY often takes it to absurd levels. Several times, characters are shot point-blank center-of-mass (which has been established to be fatal, even on the stun setting), and yet they're fine. In "Year of Hell," Tuvok is only a few feet away from an exploding torpedo, and while he's permanently injured, his infirmity is blindness. This strikes again in "Future's End" as Captain Janeway is forced to manually fire a photon torpedo, even after it has been mentioned by two separate characters that this will almost certainly lead to death by plasma (the propellant used for the weapon). She fires it, and while there is a flash of light, Janeway emerges unscathed. Hell, her uniform doesn't even get smudged!

Averted in the early seasons by giving some screen time to crewmembers who were slated for death in later episodes (i.e. Hogan, Jonas, Carey). But eventually they reverted to bumping off anonymous ensigns by the shuttleload. A notable subversion however occurs in "Latent Image" where the Doctor is guilt-ridden over his choice to save Harry Kim as opposed to the expendable crewmember.

He Who Fights Monsters
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_2c1f1138
comment
He Who Fights Monsters: In her year-long siege against the delusional Annorax, Janeway goes a little loopy herself. Both Captains face a mutiny brewing in their own vessels. There's also the symbolic parallel between Janeway's "lucky teacup" and Annorax's glass pyramid containing his late wife's lock of hair. (Both end up getting smashed.) In Part 2, Tom worryingly notes that Chakotay is being lured with the promise of restoring Voyager's condition through Timey-Wimey science — and while we're at it, maybe even nudge the ship back to Earth! Of course, a flawless 100% restoration is never going to be in the cards, but nobody involved with all-powerful Timeship can see that. "You're starting to sound like Annorax. Always one more calculation. This time it's going to be perfect." The Doctor spells this out to the holographic rebels in "Flesh and Blood." It also happens to Janeway while pursuing Captain Ransom in "Equinox" - she is outraged at his blatant disregard of morals (including mass murder) to get his crew home, but begins to abandon morals herself in an increasingly-frantic quest to stop him.

Gender Bender: In "Body and Soul", the Doctor finds himself in a jam when the locals start hunting him down ("photonics" are unwelcome on their planet) and has to download himself (or rather, his mobile emitter) into Seven's borg tubules. It's a mish-mash of TNG's "The Schizoid Man" (a ranting scientist takes over the body of an unemotional android) and DS9's "Profit and Lace" (gender reassignment for comedy).

Butterfly of Doom: The Krenim Imperium is one big Chinese finger trap. Chakotay, acting under Annorax's guidance, remembers that Janeway made a small course correction to dodge a comet, causing them to detour into Krenim space. When Chakotay runs a simulation of what would happen if they erased that comet, the harmonious line graph on the viewscreen turns into a mess of wadded-up spaghetti. "Congratulations, you almost wiped out eight thousand civilizations." ("Year of Hell")

Thoughtcrime: There was an episode where they came across a people who were extremely telepathic, so sensitive that any extreme emotions would incite them to act out on those feelings; having violent thoughts was a crime in and of itself. Torres was put under trial for having a brief violent thought when someone bumped into her, and Tuvok's investigation into the planet's culture found a sort of "violent thoughts" Black Market. Of course it examined the nature that when something was so taboo it meant their own people were unable to handle it when confronted with the situation.

The Starfish Aliens Species 8472 are initially portrayed as the most genocidal species that Starfleet has ever encountered. After the hostile Borg invade their home dimension, the genetically superior aliens embark on a crusade across the Milky Way to annihilate all other lifeforms, not just Borg, because they believe that their mere existence might be a threat to their purity. They mercilessly destroy billions of Borg before their invasion is halted by a temporary Borg-Voyager alliance. The following season, this is subverted when they are retconned into having only acted out of self-defense, and they're actually open to diplomacy.

Critical Staffing Shortage
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_31f9cec9
comment
Critical Staffing Shortage: The series begins with both Voyager and the Maquis ship sustaining heavy casualties while far away from Federation space. The only way Voyager can be operated is by merging the two crews and having skilled Maquis take over key positions on the ship. Notably, neither crew has a doctor or even a medic left alive so the Emergency Medical Hologram has to be used all the time, which it was not really designed for. Over the course of the series the EMH develops a distinct personality and starts fighting for his rights as a person. Occurs in "Displaced," where crewmen keep disappearing while aliens appear in their place. Before too much longer they're down to a skeleton crew and then it turns out it's a ploy to take over the ship, beaming crew members off one at a time and replacing them with their own people.

"Die Hard" on an X: "Basics, Part II". Voyager is taken by the Kazon-Nistrum and the crew abandoned on a primitive planet without technology. Three unlikely heroes (the Doctor at an early stage of his Character Development, renegade Tom Paris, and a former Sociopathic Soldier who discovered empathy after a Mind Meld) evade the dragnet and have to outsmart Seska to retake Voyager. "Macrocosm". Captain Janeway finds herself the Final Girl when she returns to Voyager and discovers the ship at the mercy of the Monster of the Week. Can Janeway save the day by stripping down to a sweaty tank top, strapping on a compression phaser rifle and doing her best Sigourney Weaver impersonation? "The Killing Game", opens with Voyager having been seized by the Hirogen and the crew forced into Deadly Games on the holodeck. It's Harry Kim, not the Spotlight-Stealing Squad, who kicks off La Résistance, which is only appropriate as the main holodeck program featured is a WW2 French Resistance scenario. "Message in a Bottle". The EMH is projected to a Starfleet vessel in the Alpha Quadrant, only to find it's been seized by Romulan commandoes. He has to team up with the vessel's EMH Mark Two to take it back. Ham-to-Ham Combat and Hilarity Ensues.

Death Is Cheap: The entire crew was offed twice. Every major character died at least once when an anomaly of the week duplicated the ship. The crew never figured out which of the twin Voyagers was the original ship (if either one was). Harry and Naomi were the only two from the "other" ship who survived, while Seven joined the crew long after this incident, so either the Harry Kim that made it home isn't the real one, or he, Naomi, and Seven are the only originals to make it home!

Batman Gambit
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_38d02d44
comment
Batman Gambit: "Counterpoint": Voyager is transporting telepaths through Devore space, where telepaths are automatically arrested, along with those helping them. Kashyk arrives and informs the crew that he knows what they're doing and how they plan to escape. He also says he's defecting and wants to help them avoid a Devore trap planned for them. If the crew believes him, then he betray them at a crucial moment. If they turn him away, he turns them in. If they do something to him, his superiors will wonder what happened and come looking for him. He'd win no matter what they did. Except he was Out-Gambitted by Janeway, who was prepared for his deception. If he was telling the truth, great, she'd be happy to have him on board. If he wasn't, she was ready. "Think Tank": Janeway thinks that the Hazari are covering every escape route and the ones that don't appear covered are traps, screwing the ship no matter which path they choose. Then it's inverted with the Hazari's employers, who are screwed no matter what they do. "Dark Frontier": the Borg wanted Seven of Nine to be severed earlier to develop a human perspective. If the Federation hadn't taken the bait, they lose nothing. In the episode itself, the Borg Queen's plan is a Batman Gambit. If Seven returns to them, they leave Voyager alone. If not, they assimilate Voyager during the mission. If Seven warns Voyager, than the Borg recover the transwarp coil that Voyager planned on stealing.

Actor Allusion: "I've always liked Klingon females. You've got such... spunk." This is spoken by a Female Q to Lt. Torres in "The Q and the Grey." Not only did the actor playing Q (Suzie Plakson) previously play a Klingon on TNG, she played a Klingon-human hybrid, like Torres.

Zeerust: During the years the series ran the internet was really taking off, and personal computers and cellular phones were beginning to encroach on the science-fiction technology of the show. The use of PADD's (tablet computers) stands out even more in the post-2010 era. In the episode "Hunters", Neelix distributes the first (text only) letters from home personally to each recipient among the crew individually on a PADD, since apparently email has become a lost technology. It is also not unusual to see people using multiple PADD's to multitask, as each can seemingly only run one application at a time. In "Imperfection", Icheb brings three PADD's to the Doctor to show off his original bioscans (which the Doctor should have had on file in Sickbay anyway), his projections regarding the chances of success for a cybernetic surgical procedure and finally one that contains information on DNA resequencing he has designed. To a modern real-world tablet computer user it looks faintly comical.

The Doctor's portrayal as a Mad Doctor by a revisionist historian in "Living Witness". The historian gets a shock when he's confronted with the Large Ham reality. Many of the Doctor's adversaries — Crell Moset, Dejaren, Iden, and the Equinox EMH, also fit this trope.

Conspiracy Theorist: Deconstructed by Seven of Nine in "The Voyager Conspiracy". Without the calming influence of the Collective, her brain struggles to find order in random events, causing her to leap to wild conclusions each time she looks at the ship's data. This quickly balloons into a theory that the Federation orchestrated her assimilation as a stepping stone to invading the Delta Quadrant, which only Seven can prevent by destroying the ship and herself. Unfortunately this social commentary is just as relevant as it was in the nineties. Her paranoid rants are so persuasive that she almost convinces Chakotay for a second.

Spiritual Sequel: "False Profits" features the return of the Barzan Wormhole and the two marooned Ferengi scientists from TNG's third season. In "Year of Hell", a time distortion passes over the bridge; when it clears, Janeway is still standing in center frame, except the ship is now on high alert. This shot is taken directly from TNG's "Yesterday's Enterprise." The ending is similar too, with the Captain taking the helm and performing a kamikaze run which restores the timeline. "Unimatrix Zero" is this to "The Best of Both Worlds". "Future's End" is a nice updating of the plot from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, with the crew visiting the present day while dressed in civvies. Instead of Chekov being mistaken for a commie, Tom makes reference to the then-defunct Soviet Union and claims to be a secret agent, getting him laughed out of Rain's panel van. Opposite Tom, half the crew are rounded up by paranoid militiamen who believe they're CIA spooks or some-such.

"Basics, Part II". Voyager is taken by the Kazon-Nistrum and the crew abandoned on a primitive planet without technology. Three unlikely heroes (the Doctor at an early stage of his Character Development, renegade Tom Paris, and a former Sociopathic Soldier who discovered empathy after a Mind Meld) evade the dragnet and have to outsmart Seska to retake Voyager.

The Kazon managed to sustain heavy casualties...while installing a replicator.

Loafing in Full Costume
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_3ddc6777
comment
Loafing in Full Costume: Captain Janeway does this a lot (there are exceptions) to show her workaholic nature. Budget was a factor — a scene involving B'Elanna Torres and Captain Janeway having a discussion in their pajamas had to be dropped because they could only afford to create one 'futuristic' set of pajamas. Usually they downplay this trope by having Janeway wear her undershirt. There are never any people in civilian clothes strolling in the corridors (unless they're coming directly from the holodeck) like you'd sometimes see in TNG. Ronald D. Moore complained about the latter, as he felt it worked against the premise of Voyager being stranded in the Delta Quadrant with an entire community evolving on the ship, as opposed to just being a place of work.

Dated History: Used in-universe in "Living Witness". A society has ended up with an incredibly biased account of history when Voyager traversed their system hundreds of years before, depicting the crew as a gang of sadistic thugs and genocidal monsters. When a copy of the Doctor is encountered among some of the artifacts, he eventually manages to set the record straight, and influence the planet's two respective cultures to live in harmony. "Remember" has a race of aliens who've covered up a genocide in their past by rewriting history to say the victims were Released to Elsewhere and died off from disease and in-fighting.

Humans Are Morons: The episode "Virtuoso" introduced us to the Qomar, a Rubber Forehead Alien species highly dedicated to mathematics and sciences and far more advanced than the Federation, which the Qomar looks down upon in contempt. When the Doctor provides medical treatment for one of them, the Qomarian sarcastically asks if the process involves bloodletting. Even in an idealized future where humanity has overcome a good number of its flaws to become one of the most dominant space-faring races, we're still finding aliens who think we're dumb and primitive. Pretty much the attitude of the female Q in "The Q and the Grey." She spends her entire time with the crew calling them things like "dirty primitives" until called out by B'Elanna. The Borg Queen notes the "below average cranial capacity" of Species 5618. It can't be good for her ego to keep getting foiled by these morons.

Parental Substitute: Little Naomi Wildman's father is 70,000 light years away when she is born, so several of the male crewmembers try to fill a paternal role in her life, usually her godfather Neelix. Seven of Nine later became this to four creepy-ass Borg children they rescued. She wasn't very good at it, though she wasn't terrible either. Their interaction was as much about Seven's continued Character Development as the kids', if not more.

Infant Immortality: Only in parallel-yet-simultaneous realities. Voyager is copied due to some strange phenomenon; newly-born Naomi Wildman dies and is replaced by the surviving copy from the doomed version of the ship. Making the baby Cullah’s rather than Chakotay’s in "Basics" was a last-minute change by the producers; Piller's early draft had the baby getting killed off, but Berman and Taylor hated it, saying it was "in extremely poor taste", so Cullah made off with the kid.

Broken Aesop
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_401d4116
comment
Broken Aesop: "Tattoo": The episode is supposed to be about how wonderful Native American culture is only to reveal that the Native Americans owe everything they are to alien intervention. "Remember" and "Memorial." It is important to learn about the tragedies of the past so that they never happen again...and the best way to do this is to forcibly implant memories of those tragedies into unknowing people who won't even stick around to make a difference. "Nothing Human": B'Elanna displays racial prejudice against a holographic Cardassian physician. The Doctor objects to this racism, and the episode seems to be building toward an Aesop opposing bigotry ... until it is revealed that the Cardassian doctor, Crell Moset, is actually a war criminal. The episode then turns into a debate on medical ethics, and the racism issue is all but forgotten. The Star Trek franchise is normally very firm in its opposition to bigotry, but this episode actually seemed to imply that the prejudiced characters were right. B'Elanna even acts like the discovery of Moset's war crimes vindicates her earlier hostility toward him. When she says that she had "a bad feeling" about the Cardassian as soon as she saw him, nobody calls her out on the fact that her "bad feeling" was the product of nothing more than her own racial prejudice. "Friendship One" has Janeway lament the death of Carey, noting that exploration can't justify the loss of even one life. Which is fine... except TNG made a big point that exploring the unknown always carries risk, one you're taking by choosing to do it. The two themes in "Flesh and Blood" are that people should take responsibility for their actions, and whether an artificially-intelligent hologram has the same rights as a person or is Just a Machine. However to let the Doctor off the hook Janeway declares that he's not responsible for his actions. Which would certainly be the case if the Doctor were Just a Machine, but not if he has the right to exercise his free will.

Biotech Is Better: The ship itself has bio-neural gelpacks that allow the computer to "think" more flexibly and operate faster.

Species 8472 of has "bioships" which resist Borg assimilation, are vastly superior to Borg cubes, and can destroy a planet by linking together. The Borg started the war with them because they wanted 8472's capabilities so bad.

A.I. Is a Crapshoot: If the Doctor's programming isn't getting messed with, then it's a sentient Weapon of Mass Destruction (twice!) or holograms with unsatisfactory employer relations who are causing the problem. The robot army in "Prototype", the adaptive missiles in "Dreadnought" and "Warhead", and the holograms in "Flesh and Blood". In most cases their main advocate on the ship (usually The Doctor or B'Elanna) was forced to put them down to protect the Quadrant. "Why is everyone so worried about holograms taking over the universe?" So says Dr. Zimmerman on DS9, rubbing his forehead at the thought of those silly conspiracy nuts back home. It's a good in-joke if you're familiar with this show.

comment
Dropped a Bridge on Him: When ratings stated to nosedive in Season Two, Jeri Taylor and Brannon Braga went into panic mode and decided the serialized approach was not working out. For "Basics Pt. II" Micheal Piller was asked to remove all the elements he introduced in the previous season, including the Kazon and the ongoing Starfleet-Maquis feud. Since Hogan was a character who had strong opinions and provoked some mutinous sentiments on the ship, he was obviously the first to go. Suder was the next to die. Seska dies from an exploding console — an embarrassing coda to say the least.

It should also be noted that, despite having a number of higher ranking officers on board, Janeway's team of people who run Voyager and help her make tactical decisions only include the main cast. This includes Harry, a first year ensign, Neelix, the ship's cook and a former scavenger, and Kes, a one year Ocampa who is essentially a Tagalong Kid. Despite Voyager being noted as having 150 on board, give or take, one may get the impression that only the main cast exist due to how much sheer screen time they occupy.

The Guards Must Be Crazy
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_4508b16b
comment
The Guards Must Be Crazy: With the exception of Tuvok, the only function of Voyager's security personnel is to stand in the formal 'at ease' position, waiting for the person they're guarding to stun them senseless. And Tuvok has his off days as well, thanks to Swiss Cheese Security whenever the plot requires it. After Chakotay takes off in a stolen shuttle in "Maneuvers", Tuvok promises the Captain it won't happen again. Several episodes later in "Threshold" Tom Paris not only steals a shuttle, he abducts Captain Janeway too! Starfleet also has problems with doors. They still use a forcefield on the Brig, despite the many times we see it fail if the ship is under attack. This also doesn't excuse the fact that the one door they do have, the entrance, doesn't even lock.

Human Popsicle: "The 37s", about a number of people from 1930s Earth who were abducted by aliens and taken to the other side of the galaxy. One of them was Amelia Earhart. There were also a pair of constants troubling those XXIV century guys of Voyager, like a earth vehicle propelled by refined oil (a car... floating in the space!), a 1930s airplane, and an automated S.O.S. signal.

God Guise: Invoked by a group of Ferengi, previously seen in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, who ended up getting stuck in the Delta Quadrant after getting sucked in through a wormhole. They spent no time tricking and manipulating a planet's native race to start following the Rules of Acquisition and making them believe that the Ferengi were fabled gods of local legend. In practice their scam didn't go much farther than selling copies of the book at a markup.

An In-Universe application of this trope occurs in the episode "Author, Author", in which the Doctor writes a holo-novel which is essentially a screed against the oppression of intelligent holograms, with thinly-disguised versions of the crew as the villains. However, the end of the episode implies that maybe the novel is in fact necessary, and that holographic rights is the next step in Federation civil law.

In "Waking Moments", telepathic aliens who exist primarily in a dreaming state invade the crew's dreams, forcing them to all join into a single group dream that seems totally real in order to attack them. Only Chakotay, the Magical Native American, knows it is a dream at first, and uses his lucid dreaming / vision quest Applied Phlebotinum machine to control the dream world. Eventually, the whole crew learns this skill to turn the tables on their captors and exit the dream state.

Inscrutable Aliens: One episode had them rescue an alien that was so bizarre they had to start from scratch on trying to understand it. Its biology was such that the medical computers, including the Doctor, couldn't make sense of it, and its language was beyond the universal translators capacity to decode. In another, they played this role to a species living on a planet with a Year Inside, Hour Outside effect. From their point of view, Voyager had been in their sky for centuries, and was a complete mystery to them.

No Hugging, No Kissing: Not overall, but John de Lancie has indicated that the writers/showrunners apparently insisted there be no flirting or romantic subtext between Q and Janeway. He considers this a case of What Could Have Been, comparing it to leaving a colour out of an artist's palette. Of course, many people still read Q as flirting with her despite this.

Always Chaotic Evil: The Kazon are a race of Gang Bangers IN SPACE!, divided into clans which constantly fight each other and anyone else they can loot from. Even the number of clans change from day to day, as does the size of the territory they claim. Subverted with Species 8472. They're introduced as a monolithic, xenophobic, omnicidal race of telepathic aliens, but later revealed to just be acting in self-defense. The Kradin from "Nemesis" are a race of monstrous warriors who engage in genocide and various other brutalities. It all turns out to be a lie perpetuated by their more human-looking enemies, who were brainwashing third parties to use as shock troops.

When as the Emergency Command Hologram in the episode "Workforce", the Doctor's first response to being told that Voyager will be boarded and forcibly seized, is to immediately open fire and cripple the enemy ship.

VOY differs from the other Trek series in that it lacks a proper Mirror Universe episode. However, "Author, Author" and "Living Witness" are functionally no different: there is constant and comical back-biting amongst the crew, the tone is anarchic (how does the Warship Voyager keep aloft with these schmucks onboard?), and Mirror!Janeway carpets her ready room with guns. Picardo, as the android version of the EMH, twirls around to reveal robo-eyes and wires sprouting from his bald dome; doubtless this is a wink at Stewart's Borg reveal in "Best of Both Worlds".

Your Heart's Desire: In the episode "Bliss", the space-borne equivalent of a pitcher plant tricked the crew of Voyager into entering it by making it appear to them as a wormhole they could use to return home and be reunited with their loved ones. The only people unaffected were the Doctor (a hologram, but the creature tricked the rest of the crew into shutting him off) Seven of Nine and Naomi Wildman (who, only being familiar with life on Voyager, had no real desire to go to Earth) and a Captain Ahab-type alien captain who had been hunting the creature (and was thus familiar with the creature's tricks). It does briefly work on Seven at the end when the creature makes her imagine escaping from it, which she did genuinely desire at that point.

Downer Ending: In "Course: Oblivion", the crew appears to start dying mysteriously one by one. It's quickly determined the "crew" is actually the copies from the episode "Demon". When they realize what they are, they make a beeline back to the Demon Planet. They didn't make it. To add insult to injury, the real Voyager passes through their vaporized remains without a clue. Also counts for Kes. She returned in the final season apparently angry that she was abandoned in the Delta quadrant, until a contingency hologram she recorded before she left reminded her she left of her own accord. She declined to be accepted back on Voyager, and decided instead to go home. Considering her age, whether or not she made it before she died is unknown.

"Emanation" is a timely message about the pitfalls of euthanasia — in very broad stokes. The planet in question in honeycombed with "hundreds" of assisted suicide centers, to the degree that it is literally their one defining characteristic. This leaves Ensign Kim (our audience participation character) little to do but get detained and funneled into the mortuary where he awaits certain death.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: VOY has a famously rocky start, and a number of plot points from "Caretaker" did not survive into the series proper. The first half of "Caretaker" (co-written by Michael Piller, who also wrote DS9's pilot) suggests a darker show than what actually made it to air: Neelix is established as a Con Man (in the vein of Quark) who deceives Voyager to save Kes and then screws over the local Kazon tribe on the deal they made. Afterwards, Neelix is never portrayed as anything other than a harmless goofball. Tom Paris is treated like a pariah by the crew of Voyager and even among the Maquis, with only Harry Kim to call a friend. This was quickly papered over by the second episode, "Time and Again." B'Elanna was a hair's breadth away from killing Janeway after the Captain gave the order to destroy the Array. Immediately after, she became Janeway´s staunchest advocate and is ready to pummel anyone who questions her leadership. The scarcity of water is a plot point in the pilot, making it seem important, but it never comes up again. Tuvok wears the rank insignia of a Lieutenant Commander while he is still a Lieutenant. He later gets promoted. (This one is particularly weird, given that the ranks were already clearly laid out on The Next Generation.)

Baths Are Fun: In the premiere episode, "Caretaker," Neelix was over-the-moon when he went to Voyager for the first time and was offered a bath by Tuvok. Water was scarce in that region of the Delta Quadrant, the idea of immersing himself in water to get clean was something completely foreign to Neelix. Captain Janeway was also known to have a bathtub in personal quarters on Voyager and when she and Chakotay were stuck on a planet they dubbed New Earth with an illness that only stayed dormant on that planet without the cure, Chakotay built her one.

Suddenly Always Knew That: McNeill is four years older than Garrett Wang. And yet Tom seems to have accumulated as much experience in his 30-odd years as Jadzia Dax did in her 300! Like the time in the "The 37s" when he developed a love of vintage vehicles. Or the time in "Future's End" when he discoursed about 20th Century fashion. Or that time in "Alice" when he suddenly became a fan of sailing. Or that time... From his lust for early space exploration and paleontology in "One Small Step", to his passion for boxing in "The Fight", Chakotay as a character stops making sense around Season 4 (and none of those hobbies ever come up again after the episodes wraps). He is the ultimate chameleon. Beltran actually makes a pretty convincing pugilist, and his knowledge of sports trivia and relationship with Boothby (his coach) saves an otherwise silly episode about a Clubber Lang-type alien out to stomp Chakotay's ass. But as often happens, Seven proves more capable in hand-to-hand combat so she (not Chakotay) faces down The Rock in "Tsunkatse". (Or did Beltran not look as good in a leotard?)

Kiss Me, I'm Virtual: In "Blood Fever" and "Body and Soul", attempts are made to treat the Vulcan pon farr with a holographic female Vulcan (even though it was explicitly stated in TOS that a Mind Meld is a necessary part of the process, though it could have just been "blowing off the steam", so to speak, that meditation couldn't cure.) Seven of Nine gets distracted from her duties by a holographic Chakotay in "Human Error", and the Doctor practicing his confession of love to a holo-simulation of Seven in "Someone to Watch Over Me". The "Fair Haven" program where Janeway gets interested in handsome Michael Sullivan who she then reprograms to make even more appealing, the male and female holo-eyecandy massagers hanging around B'Elanna and Tom in the early seasons, and the Doctor using the holodeck to have safe nookie with Phage-infected Denara Pel, or to daydream that all female crewmembers find him irresistible. Lastly, in "Alter Ego", a holo-babe fancied by both Harry Kim and Tuvok turns out to be not so virtual after all, but a lonely alien hacking into the system.

Brannon Braga is fond of B-movie creature features and Body Horror stories. He got to indulge both in the unintentional comedy classic, "Threshold". He also came up with the Phage, a sort of flesh-eating disease which can't be cured—even with amputations or skin grafts—requiring the victims to keep harvesting flesh.

comment
The Farmer and the Viper: In the two-part episode "Scorpion", Captain Janeway forms a temporary alliance with the Borg in order to combat Species 8472. When she asks for Chakotay's opinion, he relates the parable of "The Scorpion and The Frog", though with a fox in place of the frog. Oddly, the story as told is even more tragic than the normal retelling, with the scorpion lamenting its inability to go its against instincts, perhaps foreshadowing the reveal that the Borg provoked the war by trying and failing to assimilate 8472.

Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Janeway delivers one in "Year of Hell" just before ramming her severely crippled ship into the timeline-altering weapon ship: "Tiiiiiiiiimmmme'ssssss....up." (Fun fact: It's the same line as Picard's from Insurrection.) Another good one, also by Janeway, comes in "Night". After she orders a shot on the Malon's cargo hold, "Time to take out the trash."

comment
Disproportionate Retribution: An episode had B'Elanna on trial with a potential Fate Worse than Death. Her crime? Being annoyed when someone bumped into her. This society is a race of telepaths who have eliminated violent thoughts, and so she was inadvertantly spreading violent thoughts to innocent people, who are overwhelmed by them since they rarely have these thoughts. But it turns out that there is a black market for violent thoughts on the planet, and the incident with B'Elanna was planned.

The Vaadwaur are smooth-talking snake people, just like our old friends the Cardassians. In "Dragon's Teeth", the Vaadwaur set about charming the crew while secretly preparing to seize the ship and recapture their old territories. According to Neelix, there exist dozens of old Talaxian folk tales warning of their deceptive nature — "Demon with a golden voice", anyone?

He wonders if he is going to have to live his life as a museum piece, but is instead held accountable for a catastrophic war that's been unjustly blamed on the Voyager crew.

Immune to Mind Control: One episode shows a humorous subversion. Someone attempts to hypnotize the Doctor. He calls this ridiculous, because being a hologram rather than a real human, he can't be hypnotized of course. Yet, it succeeds almost immediately. (Perhaps because all this happened within a holo-simulation itself.)

Lotus-Eater Machine
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_5541da8c
comment
Lotus-Eater Machine: A frequent nuisance in the Delta Quadrant. Among the many examples: Chakotay is forced to participate in an army training simulation ("Nemesis"); Janeway is made to believe she died on her away mission and now haunts the ship as a spook ("Coda"); Voyager is besieged with hallucinations in "Persistence of Vision", leading to the WHAM Line, "I'm not really here..."; in "Hope and Fear", a vengeful alien camouflages his own ship as a rescue vessel sent by Starfleet. In "Bliss", a Negative Space Wedgie in the form of a gigantic psychic creature (referred to as a "telepathic pitcher plant")note  Naomi Wildman names it such. A pitcher plant mimics flowers (sometimes to the point of making nectar) to lure insects into it. The local expert on it agrees it's a fitting comparison. tricks the entire crew into believing that it is a wormhole that leads to Earth, that the Doctor and Seven of Nine (who are both immune) have to be deactivated, then making them pass out and experience a supremely pleasant false reality in order to feast on them. Double Subverted for the characters Seven of Nine and Naomi Wildman, who are able to resist its effects because they have no particular desire to go to Earth. When they tried to escape, the creature was able to then exploit that desire and make then think they succeeded when they were still inside its stomach. In "Waking Moments", telepathic aliens who exist primarily in a dreaming state invade the crew's dreams, forcing them to all join into a single group dream that seems totally real in order to attack them. Only Chakotay, the Magical Native American, knows it is a dream at first, and uses his lucid dreaming / vision quest Applied Phlebotinum machine to control the dream world. Eventually, the whole crew learns this skill to turn the tables on their captors and exit the dream state. In "The Thaw", several aliens in suspended animation wait out a planetary disaster using such a system. Unfortunately their combined anxieties created a Monster Clown character who was the personification of Fear, tormenting them for its amusement.

The Empath
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_556a3059
comment
Although much is made of Kes and her mysterious and potentially vast powers, in most episodes she is significantly below Deanna Troi in terms of actual ability. Even more glaring because Kes basically pursues two avenues of study while on Voyager. She is the Doctor's med student, at which she excels and often has to have a procedure explained to her only once in order to be able to do it herself thanks to Photographic Memory. At the same time, she is Tuvok's student in telepathy, an area in which she makes virtually no progress until right before she is Put on a Bus. Interestingly, when a Body Surfing alien warlord temporarily gains possession of her body through technological means, he is easily able to use her telepathy and telekinesis, despite never having had such abilities in any of his previous hosts, mostly to make him a more deadly threat.

Redshirt Army
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_558245a7
comment
There's also the infinite Redshirt Army. The original crew complement was 141 at the beginning of "Caretaker". "The 37's" gives the combined Maquis/Starfleet crew count as 152. And yet we see so many different background filling extras (in the canteen ALONE, besides anywhere else) that one has to wonder whether it was deliberate... In fact, when this forum post breaks down the deaths of all the crew members portrayed onscreen, it turns out that Voyager comes home with more people than she left with (largely due to the Maquis crew), and the crew count appears to be consistently maintained throughout the series. Bear in mind this is a tiny Intrepid-class cruiser, not a Galaxy-class. The background extras would never match as that would mean drawing from the same pool of a 150 or so extras over the course of a seven year series.

Notably averted in an earlier episode. While searching through the holodeck's database, Paris finds what appears to be a holonovel casting the Maquis members of the crew as mutineers. Despite this portrayal, even the "villains" happily play along. Ultimately, it's revealed it wasn't even meant to be art, but a training simulation for security members when mutiny was considered a real danger. Then it turns out that one of their old enemies had rigged it to turn into a Death Trap for whoever used it.

Artistic License – History
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_56515a39
comment
Artistic License – History: The writers decided to go the Magical Native American route with Chakotay and deliberately left his heritage as "unspecified, related to a Central American nation" due to the complex politics surrounding Native portrayals. Apparently, picking one nation, and consulting its members on what a respectful and accurate portrayal of their culture would look like, would have been too hard. They were actually Dan Browned by a consultant. They recruited someone named Jamake Highwater who claimed to be an expert on Native American culture. However, it turned out he was a con artist whose only knowledge of Native American culture came from movies. The producers didn't find this out until much later, sadly. At the time, they thought they were getting a reasonably authentic Native American character (as authentic as one could be in the 24th century, in-universe there was a bit of a revival of old traditions among Native American descendants). Of course, that just makes it a Critical Research Failure as no-one even thought to question the "expert" or verify what he said; he'd actually been publicly exposed nearly a decade earlier.

While she nearly follows the spirit, Janeway's desire to stay with her crew turns to increasing suspicion of her "father" and his motivations, who is revealed to be a hostile alien that feeds on the consciousness of any mortally wounded lifeform by luring it into its lair.

Fantastic Racism: In "Dragon's Teeth" one clue that the Vaadwaur aliens they've woken from stasis are villains is that Naomi Wildman overhears the Vaadwaur children making derogatory comments about Neelix. In the episode "Repentance", Voyager helps a damaged Nygean prison transport. Neelix finds out one race, the Benkaran, make up a tiny proportion of the population in Nygean space, but are over-represented in the judicial system. But a Bekaran prisoner, Joleg, proves by his actions during an attempted breakout that he seems to deserve his sentence.

It's All My Fault: Chakotay started blaming himself after he learned that his former lover Seska had betrayed the titular ship to an enemy species; she turned out to be a Cardassian spy dolled up to be a Bajoran to infiltrate the Maquis, and Chakotay felt responsible for not catching on to her as the leader of the cell she infiltrated, especially after he learned later that he had missed several other spies among his ranks (including science officer Tuvok). It was only when Tuvok admitted that Seska had deceived him while they were in the cell, as well, that Chakotay got over it.

In "Scientific Method", it is revealed that the crew have been the subjects of medical experiments by an alien species (a thinly-veiled allusion to animal testing). Janeway finally manages to get the experiments aborted by flying Voyager into a pulsar, which is stated to be nearly-certain death, which scares the aliens off and destroys one of their ships that doesn't get away in time. Of course, Voyager survives. The reason this is this trope is that Janeway is only acting that way because of the experiments of the aliens.

The main villain for the first two series turned out to be Seska, a manipulative Cardassian spy, and the surprisingly non-annoying child character was Naomi (her mom, originally a Recurring Character before falling Out of Focus despite her daughter remaining prominent, was a scientist).

"Marsailles" is a macho caricature (with pornstache!), "Torrey" is angry all the time, "Katany" is defined entirely by his stupidly-large tattoo, "Captain Jenkins" is a full-tilt Nazi, "Ensign Krymble" is a bundle of nerves, and "Three of Eight" provides little more than fanservice.

Courtroom Episode: "Death Wish". Quinn more or less sued the Continuum to allow him to commit suicide, and was sectioned to the Q equivalent of a rubber room (e.g. a comet). Q asks Janeway to rule on whether Quinn has the right to take his own life. Vulcans approve of suicide and so Tuvok is the consul chosen by Quinn to assist in his case.

comment
The Maquis crew included an even-headed ex-Starfleet Native American in space fighting to free his people, a half-Klingon juggling her anger problem with her identity crisis, a murderous sociopath, a Cardassian spy, and another misguided/easily manipulated spy who for some reason thought working with Voyager and the Maquis' enemies combined would be a good idea. Sprinkle various undisciplined extras with a variety of motives and "misfits" seems like a generous term.

We Have Reserves: In "Unimatrix Zero," the Borg Queen takes this to comical levels. Her solution to dealing with two or three freed drones on cubes with tens of thousands of drones still linked to the hive mind? Blow up the entire ship. This was also the case in "Collective". When nearly all the drones on an entire cube succumb to an unknown pathogen, the Collective simply severs its connection and does not even bother to dispatch a vessel to investigate (as Starfleet invariably would).

Death Quadrant: The Delta Quadrant. Say what you will about The Dominion, the Gamma Quadrant looks positively hospitable in comparison. Even discounting the Borg, this isn't someplace you'd want to be stranded. The Voyager crew meets a total of two named races (The Ocampa and Talaxians) that aren't at best underhanded and untrustworthy, at worst xenophobic and hostile (And even the Ocampa and Talaxians have a couple of duplicitous factions each), and at least two quasi-fascist empires. Here's the rundown: The Vidiians. If you live near them, disfigured organ stealing space pirates might show up at any time. The Hirogen. Savages by choice, with loads of advanced technology. Their favorite pastime is to hunt and kill any other intelligent species they encounter for sport. The Krenim. An aggressive, territorial race that manipulates time. We are told that they used to dominate the sector with their temporal weapons. The Devore. Fascist xenophobes who enforce strict martial law throughout their space and round up telepaths into concentration camps. The Borg. 'Nuff said. The unwelcoming nature of the Delta Quadrant was even Lampshaded by Chakotay in "Survival Instinct".

Outgrown Such Silly Superstitions
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_66181568
comment
Outgrown Such Silly Superstitions: Often averted with Chakotay's Native American spirituality and some explorations of other odd species' religions. The episode "False Profits" parodied this trope to Hell and back, however, with a Bronze Age civilization venerating two Ferengi refugees as their sages (sort of ersatz deities) because their crash-landing's appearance was a lot like something prophesied in one of their sacred poems. All efforts to remove the Ferengi failed until the Voyager's crew realized the same poem ended with the appearance of certain easily-arranged celestial signs and the ascension of the sages back into the heavens, all of which could be arranged using some futuristic flares and transporter technology. Since technically this means every one of the prophecies came true, there was arguably nothing to outgrow about these people's "silly superstitions" at all! Played straight in "Blink of an Eye" where Voyager is trapped in orbit over a planet where time moves rapidly, becoming worshipped as a deity called "the Groundshaker" by the inhabitants after their attempt to leave causes violent earthquakes. As we see time on the planet progress, the people invent telescopes and come to dub Voyager as "The Skyship", which, by the time they've entered the Space Age, is no longer believed to be the home of their Gods, but merely an advanced spacecraft that houses alien beings.

Author Appeal: Jeri Taylor loves her some costume dramas, if you hadn't figured it out from Janeway's Victorian novel holoprogram... or Tom's Celtic village holoprogram.... or Q's reenactment of North and South with himself as a swashbuckling Union man in blue (despite him leading the equivalent of the Q Confederacy!). Rick Berman is a self-admitted time travel addict, which explains the cornucopia of those episodes on VOY and ENT. Brannon Braga is fond of B-movie creature features and Body Horror stories. He got to indulge both in the unintentional comedy classic, "Threshold". He also came up with the Phage, a sort of flesh-eating disease which can't be cured—even with amputations or skin grafts—requiring the victims to keep harvesting flesh.

Planet of Hats: Kazon (Gang Bangers IN SPACE!), Vidiians (diseased organ pirates), Malon (galactic garbage dumpers), Hirogen (a culture based on hunting sentient species), the Swarm (a nameless xenophobic...swarm), and the Devore Imperium (xenophobic, telepath-hating militarists, though in this case their uniformity is used to highlight the individual charm of Inspector Kashyk). Less malelovant versions of this trope include the Sikarians who are interested in stories (but lose interest when the stories become old news), while the Qomar are The Napoleon (short and unbelievably arrogant, and just as quick to lose interest in what bores them).

Oh Crap, There Are Fanfics of Us!: In "Muse", a playwright on a pre-industrial world discovers B'Elanna Torres in her crashed shuttle and is inspired to write a play based on her logs. Thus, the episode opens with the boilerplate Captain's Log being spoken aloud... at an amphitheater. This is some next-level meta referencing. Naturally, there is some dramatic license taken; such as Seven of Nine turning out to be the Borg Queen in disguise, or the playright crowbarring his own ships into the dialog. (But no Janeway/Seven slash, if you were wondering). This was the general consensus about the Doctor's attempt at writing a holonovel with thinly-veiled expies of the crew as characters.

Meaningful Name: The titular ship is named after the two probes of NASA's Voyager program. The purpose of this program was to explore the outer reaches of the Solar System, sending the two probes on a course for interstellar space, paralleling Starfleet's mission statement nicely. Additionally, USS Voyager being sent to the opposite end of the galaxy is a reference to Voyager 1 being the farthest man-made object from Earth, having passed Pioneer 10 while the show was still running.

Once Done, Never Forgotten: Harry Kim has a habit of constantly falling for women he can't get. It gets to the point where every time he starts a relationship, his buddy Tom Paris goes off on a litany of every doomed romance he's started in his time on the ship.

Understatement
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_7040b6bc
comment
Understatement: Played with In "Scientific Method," Janeway decides to fly Voyager between two stars, hoping to destroy the ships of some aliens who have been experimenting on the crew in the process. On the one hand, they had low odds of survival, and Tuvok even tells her that it's a far more reckless course of action than he's come to expect from her, and later calls it an understatement. On the other hand, not only were said aliens affecting her judgement by messing around with her brain chemicals, but they had just executed a crew member for her attempts to break everyone free from their experiments, and they had previously made clear they would kill the entire crew if they kept it up. So the "1 in 20, at best" odds of survival may not have looked so bad, especially in light of the opportunity to at least take the aliens with them.

Unseen No More: A running plotline for the first few seasons was Harry and Tom dating the Delaney Sisters (Jenny and Megan). Tom had to convince Harry to double-date with him, and later it's revealed that Harry isn't interested in the sister that's interested in him. It's not until the fifth season (after Tom is in a relationship with someone else) that they appear on screen. As Voyager reviewer Jim Wright puts it when they appear...

Ominous Message from the Future

comment
Ominous Message from the Future: In the episode "Future's End", Captain Braxton of the time ship Aeon comes back from the 29th century with information that the entire solar system has been destroyed in a cataclysmic explosion and that Voyager was somehow involved. Now he's here to destroy them before that can happen. They manage to fight him off and both ships get stuck in the late 20th century. Braxton, who arrived 30 years earlier and has been living as a homeless bum all that time, continues to try warn people of the coming disaster, but due to his position in society, and the fact that he's talking about something that won't happen for centuries, people dismiss him as just another crazy bum.

The omega molecule is one of the most powerful substances in existence, and the most dangerous: an omega molecule explosion is not only catastrophically destructive, but so damaging to subspace that it rendered warp travel impossible for an entire sector. Starfleet protocol calls for its immediate destruction should it be found, superseding even the Prime Directive.

"Basics" has a classic redshirt incident: Neelix and Ensign Hogan discover a pile of humanoid bones in front of a dark cave mouth. Neelix, who notes they're like a Keep Out sign, orders Hogan to gather them all up, then gets called away by someone else. Hogan gets an Oh, Crap! look, and sure enough is killed seconds later by a giant lizard charging out of the cave.

Swiss Cheese Security: Voyager seemed to have been assigned the worst security detail in the history of Starfleet. Enemies were able to, on a fairly regular basis, steal one of their shuttles or hack into their computer using codes which the crew knew would be compromised. The episode "False Profits" ended with two unarmed Ferengi overpowering their guards, getting to the shuttlebay, taking back their ship, and escaping through a wormhole.

Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Both the Doctor and Seven of Nine.

One of the most blatant instances of this was the episode "One Small Step...", which was originally focused on Chakotay, but received a last-minute rewrite to turn it into another "Seven of Nine learns about humanity" story.

Fantastic Fragility: The bio-neural gel packs are an "object" form of Power at a Price. They (at least) double computing power, greatly enhance navigation auto-reaction time, increase power efficiency, and much more. On the other hand, they are impossible to replace in the field, are non-standard even within the Federation, and are inherently incompatible with conventional alternatives — requiring considerable engineering skill to adapt to said alternatives. Their biological components are also vulnerable to pathogens such as the bacteria used to create cheese, and a macrovirus which spread easily throughout the ship due to the replicator system's gel pack becoming infected.

Remember the New Guy?: Lyndsay Ballard, a crew member who had died and been resurrected by aliens, returns but no longer fits in; she had never been seen or mentioned before. Teero turns out to have been a fairly major figure in the Maquis, not to mention the guy who made Tuvok for a Starfleet officer long before Chakotay did. "I should've known you'd turn up again!", Chakotay bellows. News to the Trekkies... It's Season Seven and nobody's even mentioned him before. Averted with Seska. After "State of Flux" was written, the writers deliberately inserted her character into earlier episodes to increase the impact of her betrayal.

Face Your Fears: Captain Janeway talks about this in "Good Shepherd." She was afraid of the ocean as a child; she liked to swim in pools and ponds, but not being able to see the bottom of the ocean freaked her out. In her first year at Starfleet Academy, she had to do zero-gravity training in the Coral Sea, after which she stopped being afraid of the ocean.

Humanity Ensues: Seven of Nine started out as human, became a Borg as a kid, and was forcibly brought back down to human (more or less) by the crew of Voyager. While initially not happy about it (to say the least), Captain Janeway guided her through the process of rediscovering her humanity through time, patience, and care. This side of her character development shows more and more across the series. At the start, Seven talks in a very punctual manner, foregoing emotion or expression. By the final season, Seven commonly engages in idle conversation with a more optimistic and emotionally interested inflection in her voice.

A frequent nuisance in the Delta Quadrant.

Mistaken for Racist: The crew is stranded on a primitive planet without their technology, and Tuvok, the Vulcan tactical officer, fashions several crude weapons including a bow and arrow (which is obviously a stereotype of Native Americans). First Officer Chakotay, who is of indigenous South American or Meso-American descent, politely thanks Tuvok but says "This is thoughtful of you Tuvok, but my tribe never used bows and arrows, and I've never even shot one," figuring Tuvok had maybe watched one too many westerns and had the wrong idea about Native Americans. Tuvok gives Chakotay a different weapon and says, "This is mine. I taught archery science for several years at the Vulcan Institute of Defensive Arts. "

For Want of a Nail
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_79a60aec
comment
For Want of a Nail: The "Year of Hell" two-parter involves a Krenim timeship making subtle and not-so-subtle changes to the timeline hoping to create a perfect timeline where their empire is once again powerful and all their loved ones are alive. One part featured Chakotay offering to erase an insignificant-looking comet from history, thus preventing the Voyager's interference in Krenim affairs. The Krenim captain explains that Chakotay would be wiping out half the species in the sector due to this comet being involved in seeding most of the inhabited planets in the sector billions of years ago. The captain might seem like a bit of a hypocrite for pointing out Chakotay's mistake, but the whole thing is about him trying to fix the mistake he made in the first place. As the timeship itself exists out of time, destroying it at any point causes it to never have been built, and leading to a more or less happy ending for everyone involved. The Voyager novel Echoes occurs when a planet activates a revolutionary new transport system that happens to shift the residents over one universe. When the Voyager is inadvertently summoned by the energy pulse, it is immune to the shifts. Residents report small changes in the world around them as they're moved. This wouldn't be such a problem, except somewhere down the line, the planet was hit by a meteor. That universe's Voyager was tasked with trying to save a few billion people. And a few hours after that, a few billion more. And a few hours after that... The episode "Non Sequitur" shows what would have happened if Harry Kim was not chosen to be among those who would be in Voyager's crew, with the results also affecting the life of Tom Paris. Of course, the catch is that this is an alternate reality in which Harry Kim still remembers being a crew member of Voyager and has somehow wound up in this reality.

Armor-Piercing Question: Unlike most examples, it's not world-shaking but does make someone realize something. In an episode where the crew is unwillingly and unknowingly experimented on by an alien species, Janeway's aggression and irrationality is increased significantly. At one point she tells Tuvok to harshly punish several crew members for very minor things. Tuvok asks "Should I have them flogged as well?" That's when Janeway realizes that something is very wrong with her. Note Tuvok knew that would snap her back to reality. In "Latent Image", Janeways wants to wipe the Doctor's memories against his will, arguing that he is Just a Machine. Seven gets through to her with the following.

The Kyrian archeologist, Quarren, is peddling the claim that the "Warship Voyager" — a ship with three giant, phallic cannons attached to its hull and 300 soldiers, among them Kazon and multiple Borg — came to their planet and seeded it with poisonous probes. The Doctor sees the attack play out in a holo-reenactment, as though we're in an episode of Delta Quadrant's Most Wanted.. The Doctor is rightly horrified, telling Quarren that they were simply explorers looking for home. Quarren responds, "to Mars", which makes the Doc go thermonuclear. Seriously, he spends most of this episode shouting.

Villain Decay
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_7bb844ec
comment
Villain Decay: The Borg once destroyed a fleet of thirty-nine ships, but in this series, one lone cruiser keeps escaping their grasp. Obviously, if the Collective assimilated Voyager, there wouldn't be a series. They have to keep losing, but they were also serious ratings-grabbers following the strong box-office of Star Trek: First Contact. So they show up a lot... and consequently lose a lot. This is Hand Waved in that Voyager is stated to be too insignificant for the Borg to assimilate or pursue with full force, though this doesn't explain how a lone Federation ship can severly-damage a heavily-armored Tactical Cube. Species 8472. Introduced in "Scorpion" as beings from another galaxy who possess the physiology and technology to take on the Borg Collective and win. Turns out the Borg picked that fight, but there was serious concern that Species 8472 would take the fight to the rest of the galaxy because they consider all other organic life tp be unclean. In their final appearance, "In the Flesh," they are humanized (literally) and more-receptive to Janeway's overtures for peace, with one of them falling for Chakotay. Q was from a frivolous yet dangerous omniscient being who delivered some hard lessons to the human race. Here he is a Casanova Wannabe who propositions Janeway in increasingly-desperate ways, then grows to depend on her for parental advice, with his son referring to her as Aunt Kathy. The process began with that Robin Hood farce on tMG and his sole DS9 appearance; in both cases he was possesive of Vash, who similarly spurned his advances.

Comic-Book Adaptation
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_7c4f6612
comment
Comic-Book Adaptation: Malibu Comics initially won the rights to Voyager as a companion to its DS9 title, but only got so far as to publish some preview art in a few industry periodicals before Paramount withdrew the rights to Star Trek from both Malibu and DC Comics due to it launching a new Paramount Comics imprint with Marvel Comics, which subsequently published a Voyager comic book. Later, DC obtained the licence for its Wildstorm imprint. IDW Comics currently holds the licence but as of 2014 has yet to publish a Voyager comic, though Seven of Nine is a main character in IDW's Next Generation miniseries Hive.

Dying Declaration of Love: Only their imminent death through oxygen deprivation gives B'Elanna Torres the courage to tell Tom Paris she loves him (next moment they're beamed to safety). EMH blurts out his feelings for Seven of Nine in front of half the senior officers when he thinks his program is going to shut down forever, along with several other embarrassing confessions. He's repaired moments later. When the 37s are discovered, Fred Noonan (Amelia Earhart's navigator) gets shot in the chest and taken to sickbay. Thinking he will die, he confesses his love to Earhart. However, he is then healed by the Doctor and embarrassed, tries to take back his confession.

In "Author, Author", the EMH makes a holonovel about a fictional ship stranded in the Delta Quadrant. It is best described as extreme Muse Abuse of Voyager's crew, so much so that the EMH has to rework the novel. The episode's main conflict is that the publisher won't allow the EMH to revise it, because holograms don't have rights. (The Federation decides that while he can't be classified as a person, he can be classified as an artist.)

Her Code Name Was "Mary Sue": The Doctor wrote some horrifically painful holonovels where he saves the day over and over again. And lets not forget what happens when he tries to cultivate his own ability to daydream! In "Author, Author." Tom sits through the Doctor's semi-autobiographical holoprogram and decides to play editor. Like Tom observes, Holo-Seska isn't one to let a little thing like death get in the way of revenge — or her One True Pairing. She actually programs Holo-Chakotay to coo, "You're an incredible woman, Seska" before dipping her into a Wedding Photo kiss! ("Worst Case Scenario")

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: One of their worst offenses (if not the first) was inadvertently destroying the relay station that put them back in communication with the Alpha Quadrant while trying to fight off some Hirogen. The relay network spanned the great majority of the Delta and Beta Quadrants, and had been fully operational for over 100,000 years, and they knocked out the whole network. Fortunately, they found other relay stations that didn't get destroyed as they continued their journey.

The War on Straw
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_8010bd0c

The War on Straw: The Doctor's opus, Photons Be Free. As usual, the EMH's heart is in the right place, but his ego undercuts it. He thought he could write a holonovel showing all of his coworkers in an unflattering light, publish in the Alpha Quadrant and that everyone onboard would be pretty much OK with that. During the tedious 10-minute prologue to the story the he drones on in a Noëll Coward dressing gown (This is his only novel). The Doctor takes some creative license with his life on Voyager: His mobile emitter is a giant backpack that weighs him down like a ton of bricks, everyone onboard treats him like pocket lint, and Captain "Jenkins" murders patients in sickbay to bump her people she wants treated higher up the priority list. Naturally the only person to escape this farce unscathed is Seven of Nine. In revenge, Tom Paris pens a holonovel depicting life under an obnoxious EMH: He’s got an appalling comb over, barely bothers to diagnose his patients and groans lustfully as he gives "Three of Eight" massages.

Continuity Cavalcade
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_813e694d

Continuity Cavalcade: VOY seems to contain at least two of every recurring species in Star Trek, rather like Noah's menagerie. Ensign Vorik and Commander Tuvok comprise a two-man Vulcan social club (a female Vulcan can be spotted floating around in the crowd; conveniently, Vorik deemed her "incompatible" as a mate and imprinted on Torres instead in "Blood Fever"). Torres, of course, is the resident Klingon. At least two Bajorans, a Betazoid, a Cardassian (incognito, that is), and two Bolian are Maquis members... "Workforce" confirmed the presence of a few Benzites; you can spot them disembarking at the power plant along with the rest of Janeway's brainwashed crew (their ever-changing skin color has settled on pink). "Flesh and Blood" revels in bringing back the familiar Alpha Quadrant races in hologram form. This is Federation technology after all, so it makes sense that the Hirogen would build their prey in the images of their database. This is a clever way to pack scenes of Bajorans, Cardassians, Klingons, Borg, Breen(!), and Romulans together without having to reference the Dominion War.

However this could just be writer confusion over exactly what transwarp is.

She never reappeared in the series following her second season episode, but the Star Trek: String Theory novel trilogy provides (non-canon) answers.

Broken Pedestal: A variation occurs with Doctor Zimmerman in "Life-Line".

Naturally he's not too happy when The Doctor shows up to attempt to treat him.

Story-Breaker Power
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_8712e4c9
comment
Story-Breaker Power: The classic example of how Psychic Powers are inherently linked to this trope. Although much is made of Kes and her mysterious and potentially vast powers, in most episodes she is significantly below Deanna Troi in terms of actual ability. Even more glaring because Kes basically pursues two avenues of study while on Voyager. She is the Doctor's med student, at which she excels and often has to have a procedure explained to her only once in order to be able to do it herself thanks to Photographic Memory. At the same time, she is Tuvok's student in telepathy, an area in which she makes virtually no progress until right before she is Put on a Bus. Interestingly, when a Body Surfing alien warlord temporarily gains possession of her body through technological means, he is easily able to use her telepathy and telekinesis, despite never having had such abilities in any of his previous hosts, mostly to make him a more deadly threat. Tuvok is Voyager's primary telepath, although like most Vulcans he is limited to Touch Telepathy unless the target is also telepathic. There is debate over other telepaths on the crew. There was at least one other Vulcan (Vorik), as well as a psychically-handicapped Betazoid, Lon Suder, who was not telepathic as is the norm for his species. A female Vulcan and a female Betazoid also appeared amongst the extras, but were never mentioned otherwise. Although at least on the surface it would appear that Janeway had the most telepaths aboard her ship out of any Trek captain, she almost never had reliable telepathic backup when it would have been useful. A non-psychic, but still mental, example is Seven-of-Nine, who seemingly recalls virtually everything she could have possibly absorbed while part of the Borg Hive Mind — except for how to equip Voyager with transwarp drive in order to get them home sooner.

 Star Trek: Voyager / int_8797239c
comment
Bait-and-Switch: If a certain theory is true, Voyager has a colossal one that potentially strung viewers along for twenty-one episodes. The episode Course Oblivion (Season 5, Episode 18) ends with the revelation that the Voyager crew depicted was, in fact, a copy created from the ending of Demon (Season 4, Episode 24), during which the real Voyager was partially submerged in a lake of the silver fluid that created the clones of Paris and Kim. The "Demon Crew", equipped with all the technology, personal drives and memories of Voyager, simply did as the real Voyager did and set a course for home. However, a counter-argument to the theory appears at the start of the latter episode: Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres exchanging wedding vows with no prior mention of so much as an engagement. The real Tom and B'Elanna don't get married until the episode Drive, all the way in Season 7. A counter-argument is also how Janeway addresses Tom Paris at the duplicate couple's wedding. Tom Paris is called lieutenant at that wedding, whereas the real Paris was demoted from lieutenant to ensign in the previous episode "Thirty Days."

By season 2 Voyager already has a formidable reputation for asskicking among various Delta Quadrant civilizations (albeit partially due to the Kazon spreading false information).

Which is bested by "Scorpion, Part One" with two in quick succession. First, Voyager encounters FIFTEEN Borg cubes. Just one of them managed to destroy 39 ships and kill 11,000 people at Wolf 359, and here Voyager comes across a fleet of them. And they pass by without bothering to assimilate or destroy Voyager. A little later, Voyager runs across those same fifteen cubes... as a debris field. Mass "Oh, Crap!" really doesn't begin to cover it.

Not just the magnum opus "Threshold", but also "The 37s" (a floating Ford pickup in space), "Concerning Flight" (Leonardo Da Vinci escapes the holodeck and runs amok), "The Q and the Grey" (and really, any Q episode besides "Death Wish" counts as this), "Body and Soul" (the Doctor jumps into Seven's body and proceeds to abuse it in absurd ways), "Muse" (the Voyager crew are mythologized as hammy, horny Greek gods!), "Live Fast and Prosper" (Janeway and Tuvok impersonators swindle unwary aliens in need of rescue) and the grandaddy of them all "Bride of Chaotica". Quoth Michael Piller: TNG ends its first season with the return of the Romulans, DS9 with a festering sectarian war, and Voyager…ends its first season with some moldy old cheese sabotaging the ship. Oh the humanity. Piller himself seemed wryly-aware of it by the time he was let go. In "The Cloud", there’s a sense that Piller is having a bit of fun at the show's expense. The crew seems curiously uninterested in the anomaly of the week, and the whole thing is treated as a set-up for character-based jokes; it’s Janeway’s monomaniacal desire for coffee which risks dooming the ship. "There’s coffee in that nebula!" sounds like a riff on the Western cliché, There’s gold in them there hills.

"Memorial" where an alien device Mind Rapes crew members into experiencing a massacre (in actual fact, a more effective war memorial). At the end of the episode Janeway orders the device refuelled so it can go on to Mind Rape many more people for at least 300 years. She does however also leave a beacon some distance away to warn people about what is about to happen to them.

Ragtag Bunch of Misfits
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_8ad43dc9
comment
Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The Maquis crew included an even-headed ex-Starfleet Native American in space fighting to free his people, a half-Klingon juggling her anger problem with her identity crisis, a murderous sociopath, a Cardassian spy, and another misguided/easily manipulated spy who for some reason thought working with Voyager and the Maquis' enemies combined would be a good idea. Sprinkle various undisciplined extras with a variety of motives and "misfits" seems like a generous term. The above crew is then grafted onto a reduced Voyager crew, along with its holographic doctor with terrible bedside manner, an ex-convict with a rebellious attitude and bad luck, a junk collector all but outright seeking asylum, and a rapidly aging telepath slowly developing godlike powers. The result? The first couple dozen episodes of the series. The crew eventually learns to function together so that by the time they start picking up ex-Borg, they don't shake things up very much.

Native Guide: Neelix, a local junk dealer, offers Captain Janeway his services as guide in exchange for passage for himself and his girlfriend. For the first two seasons, Neelix is generally competent in this role except when the plot requires otherwise. Midway through the third season, Voyager crosses the frontier of Neelix's geographic knowledgenote in "Fair Trade", and his usefulness as a guide comes to an end.

Ludicrous Speed: Hitting the Warp Factor 10 speed limit in "Threshold" makes you go crazy, spit out your tongue, and eventually mutate into a large salamander. But not before kidnapping your captain and taking her to an alien planet, so she can mutate and you can have children with her. For obvious reasons, the producers eventually declared the episode non-canonical. Especially since other faster-than-warp means of propulsion such as "transwarp" and "quantum slipstream" drives were also depicted, which for whatever reason allowed travel beyond Warp 10 without being Hollywood Evolutioned into an amphibian.

comment
Immunity Attrition: In the episode "Bliss" a telepathic nebula tries to lure the ship into itself so it can eat it. Seven of Nine believes herself to be immune to it because she is a former Borg drone with many cybernetic implants. However, she was only immune to the initial attack because she didn't have the desire to return to Earth that the rest of the crew shared. Once the nebula tried to fool her into thinking something had happened that she did want, i.e. that she had succeeded in escaping it, it turns out that she was as vulnerable as anyone else.

Revisiting the Roots

comment
Revisiting the Roots: For better or for worse, Star Trek Voyager was this for the franchise: A lone Federation starship exploring the dangerous unknowns and meeting new life and new civilizations. The Seventh Season was a time of reflection for the series. With no Myth Arc to hastily wrap up, the show's themes are explored again in episodes such as "Repressed" (more Maquis mutiny threats) and "The Void" (Janeway carves out a mini-Federation in a hostile corner of space). Supporting players such as Barclay, Lt. Carey, Chell the Bolian, and Seska returned in various guises. The elder Janeway's dress uniform in "Endgame" is inspired by the Naval-style jackets from the TOS movies. The last season also saw the return of nearly every notable Trek race, a claim which not even the ENT finale can make.

Just a Machine: The Character Development of the Doctor is based around him first realising that he's not just this trope, then getting others to realise it too. He ends up in a continuing battle with Captain Janeway because even after she recognises that the Doctor's needs have to be considered, she also regards him as a necessary piece of equipment (he's their only doctor) and therefore believes she has the right as The Captain to override his wishes.

Invoked in "Timeless" — Harry Kim tries to make sense of how the future version of himself could have sent the present-day Seven of Nine instructions on how to save the ship, since the future Harry's timeline was erased and he will not exist to send the instructions, resulting in an apparent Grandfather Paradox. Janeway just tells him not to bother trying to work it out, since he'll likely only succeed in giving himself a headache.

Locked in a Room: "Parturition". When Paris and Neelix start playing tug of war with Kes, it's only a matter of time before the pair of them crash land on a planet and have to overcome the odds to help a cute widdle alien baby to be born. In "Resolutions", Janeway and Chakotay get a disease that forces Voyager to maroon them on their own planet until a cure is found. The episode was designed to explore their UST in an environment where neither had to worry about their command responsibilities. In the Season 7 episode "Natural Law", Chakotay is stranded on a planet with Seven of Nine. Given this trope, the actors wanted to follow up on the C/7 attraction shown in a recent episode. They were refused by the Powers That Be so their Relationship Upgrade in the final episode appears to come out of nowhere.

Ret-Gone: In the two-parter "Year of Hell", the episode's villain, Annorax, has a weapon ship that can erase entire civilizations from history. When he originally fired the weapon at his people's greatest enemy, it restored the Krenim Empire, only to collapse due to an unforeseen plague (which also killed his wife) that only occurred because the enemy race had never introduced a vital immunity genome to the Krenim. In desperation, he fired it again to try and fix his mistake, managing to restore everyone, except for the colony in which his wife lived! This led to his 200-year-long crusade to resurrect her that has failed every single time, causing him to become obsessed to the point where he's conducting a one-man war against time itself. The plot is resolved when Janeway's kamikaze attack on the weapon ship, causes the weapon ship itself to be erased from history, resetting time and reuniting Annorax with his wife.

You Keep Using That Word: Various crewmembers describe things from the 19th and 20th century as being "Ancient", which comes off to many as saying that Roman Chariots and Nuclear Weapons are relatively close historically. Although it should be noted, first, that the definition of "ancient" is vague, and many people today refer to things 400 years past as ancient. It's also worth noting that this isn't the first Star Trek series to do this, as it started as far back as TNG.

Training the Gift of Magic: The Ocampa have absolutely enormous potential for Psychic Powers, with the possibility of even becoming Energy Beings and Ascending to a Higher Plane of Existence.

The Caretaker's mate Suspiria has made it her mission to train a small group of Ocampa to reach their full potential and join her in a subspace domain she calls "Exosia".

Phlebotinum Breakdown: At the end of "Caretaker", the replicators are carefully rationed and Neelix is expected to cook for 150 people a day all by himself. Fortunately the future hydroponics bays will have efficiency rivaling that of a small farm. Combine with rationing, replicator subsidization, and futuristic fertilizer and cooking implements, quantity of food isn't really an issue on Voyager. So the mess hall gets a pass on "Infinite Supplies".

Set Right What Once Went Wrong
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_93ed8515
comment
Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Voyager crashes into a snowball planet just a stone's throw from home, courtesy of a dodgy prototype engine ("Timeless"). Fifteen years later, Chakotay, Kim, and the Doctor work to alert their past selves. The money shot of Voyager buried in a frozen lake (as the theme leitmotif sadly plays) is one of the show's most iconic images. "Year of Hell". Janeway's fun begins when Voyager bumbles its way into a sector divvied up between the Krenim and their soon-to-be-nullified rivals. The Krenim border guard goes from a mouse screaming at a lion ("I hope you have something bigger in those torpedo tubes?" — Janeway) before the shockwave hits to a smug fascist afterwards; the shift in his performance tells you everything you need to know about what has happened. In the final episode, Janeway is an Insane Admiral who wants to use temporal technology to get Voyager back home sooner.

Not Me This Time
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_95b875b1
comment
Not Me This Time: At the beginning of "One Small Step," Seven makes some unauthorized changes to the computer core (again) and inadvertently causes a bunch of annoying systems malfunctions. While Chakotay is reprimanding her for this, Voyager experiences a ship-wide power drain. Chakotay rolls his eyes in her direction and Seven defensively says that this is unrelated to her modifications. It turns out a rare subspace anomaly is responsible. It's established in "Good Shepherd" that Crewman Tal Celes makes frequent errors in Astrometrics, annoying Seven to no end. In "The Haunting Of Deck Twelve," Seven finds her at a computer near Astrometrics and accuses her of overloading some EPS conduits during a diagnostic, which caused a power failure in Astrometrics. Celes insists that she couldn't possibly have done this because she hasn't even started the diagnostic yet. Voyager has actually been invaded by an electromagnetic lifeform that's wreaking havoc on the ship's systems.

Fresh Clue: In "Phage", when the team is tracking the Vidiians that stole Neelix's lungs, Janeway's tricorder detects a heat signature indicating that a humanoid life form was in the room within the last few minutes.

Which is nothing compared to "Collective". The crew of the Delta Flyer are playing poker when they suddenly notice the terrified look on Tom's face, then turn to see a Borg cube bearing down on them.

Master of Illusion: "Persistence of Vision" has the crew foil the efforts of the Villain of the Week to trap them in a Lotus-Eater Machine. Unfortunately after they capture him, he disappears before their eyes because, as he says, he was never physically there in the first place. "Bliss" features an Eldritch Abomination that convinces the crew they're returned to Earth while actually they're being Eaten Alive. "Waking Moments" has hostile aliens trap the crew in their own dreams. Fortunately Chakotay works out a Pinch Me way of waking up.

Jeri Taylor loves her some costume dramas, if you hadn't figured it out from Janeway's Victorian novel holoprogram... or Tom's Celtic village holoprogram.... or Q's reenactment of North and South with himself as a swashbuckling Union man in blue (despite him leading the equivalent of the Q Confederacy!).

The above crew is then grafted onto a reduced Voyager crew, along with its holographic doctor with terrible bedside manner, an ex-convict with a rebellious attitude and bad luck, a junk collector all but outright seeking asylum, and a rapidly aging telepath slowly developing godlike powers. The result? The first couple dozen episodes of the series. The crew eventually learns to function together so that by the time they start picking up ex-Borg, they don't shake things up very much.

Evil Counterpart
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_9b54d536
comment
Evil Counterpart: Get comfortable, this could take a while. The Equinox is headed by a headstrong, morally-flexible Captain who is willing to do anything to get his crew home — like using sentient aliens for fuel. ("Equinox") The ship has its own Mark I hologram, only with his ethical subroutines removed. He manages to infiltrate Voyager by stealing the Doctor's emitter and pretending to be him. Fortunately, he proves to be a long-winded bore just like the original, and the EMH boots the imposter out of Sickbay and deletes him before he can order the computer to go kablooey. ("I'm afraid your physician's no longer on call.") Dejaren was a fellow hologram onboard an alien vessel, used as a glorified janitor. Like the Doctor, he entertained himself with hobbies in his spare time, in this case pet (holographic) fish, but was treated shabbily by the crew and confined to a tiny room to work. Eventually he went off his nut and murdered the crew in the interest of 'sterilization'. Then there was Crell Moset. At first, he seems like a kindred spirit to the lonely, underappreciated Doctor. Being Cardassian, however, warnings signs begin to emerge: where the Doctor honors all sentient life and prefers non-invasive techniques whenever possible, Crell cuts corners and is indifferent to his patient's pain. Eventually we learn that he is a war criminal who performed experiments on Bajoran peasants during the occupation. The Doctor, unable to study Crell's research in good conscience (no matter how breakthrough it may be), deletes him. ("Nothing Human") Iden is a facsimile of a Bajoran militaman from DS9 (grey uniform, officer class) created by the Hirogen as a substitute for their hunting grounds; drawing on historical data from the Bajoran uprising, he spearheads a revolt to liberate his fellow "prey". Initially, the Doctor sympathizes with Iden's cause and finds him most agreeable. As Iden absorbs more information, however, he soon starts displaying messianic behavior, demanding bigger and bigger titles and forcing other holograms to revere him. As a dark mirror into the Doctor's own self-image throughout the series, it is pretty harsh. ("Flesh and Blood")

A Day in the Limelight: As with most shows, all the regular characters have a few episodes revolving around themselves each season, and most recurring characters have at least one in the series. Worth noting, however, is that "Voyager" also made effort to show the lower-decks crewmen once in a while. "Learning Curve" focused on Maquis crewmen adjusting to Starfleet regulations; several seasons later, "Good Shepherd" starred three of Janeway's original Starfleet crew who weren't adjusting well to life in the Delta Quadrant; and "Ashes to Ashes," which was essentially about a dead Red Shirt trying to return to Voyager, also counts.

Taking the Bullet: Freya, a holodeck character of Beowulf, took one (or more exactly, a knife attack) to save the Doctor. She died with the name "Schweitzer" on her lips. The doctor, who had chosen that name, declined to use it afterwards, to avoid being reminded of Freya's fate. Split in two halves, Klingon B'Elanna took the shot directed to the human B'Elanna. She died in the hands of her human self, telling that her human courage made her own death an honourable one.

Foreshadowing: Many of the events depicted in "Year of Hell" are foreshadowed in "Before & After". This despite the fact that the character used to foreshadow the events (Kes) isn't there when they eventually happen. In the Season 3 episode "Unity," Voyager finds an abandoned Borg cube with thousands of dead drones on board. While speculating about what caused this, B'Elanna says, "Maybe the Borg were defeated by an enemy even more powerful than they are." This turns out not to be the case (the cube was caught in an electrokinetic storm), but the Borg actually do have such an enemy (Species 8472), who are introduced in the season finale.

Barbie Doll Anatomy: For obvious reasons the EMH was designed without genitals; a throwaway line in Message in a Bottle implies that at some point the Doctor made an addition to his program. It is very likely that this also applies to the Ocampa, as we see Kes in Before and After giving birth out of a sack on her back and we learn in Elogium that conception occurs only after a male touches the female's palms after they begin to secrete some kind of yellow mucus. In "Latent Image", the Doctor shows off a holographic reconstruction of Harry Kim. Freeze-Frame Bonus proves what some fans have been saying all along — Harry has no balls.

In "Living Witness" (yes, this episode again), we see an age-old war from two different historical perspectives. In one, the rubber-headed Vaskans are the traitorous Quislings who sold out the planet in exchange for land. In the Doctor's revised account, the 'human' aliens were indeed the instigators of the bloodbath: the so-called "martyr" of the Kyrians was the one leading the boarding party to attack Voyager. Further muddying the waters is the class division amongst the Kyrians and Vaskans: The prologue is hosted by a Kyrian curator, suggesting that the Kyrians came out on top in the end. But the well-dressed hosts are just "token" Kyrians, elected to give the impression of a balanced debate.

Continuity Nod: The series opens with Chakotay and his Maquis cell being pursued by Gul Evek. Evek had been established on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as the Cardassian liaison to the Demilitarized Zone — which means he is logically one of the ships in range to go after Chakotay. In "State of Flux" when evidence suggests Seska is a surgically alterred Cardassian spy, Tuvok notes that Starfleet Secuirty has documented incidents of Cardassian cosmetic alteration for espionage. Two such incidents had occurred the previous year over on DS9's "Tribunal" and "Second Skin".

What Measure Is a Non-Human?
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_9e08a5c2
comment
What Measure Is A Nonhuman: With a holographic Doctor, they question of whether a projection of Hard Light and a "soul" of algorithms arises a few times. This includes encountering a race of photonic creatures in a different plane, and another which considers holographic programs to be insurgents. Even what rights the Doctor has on the ship has been explored, with him even trying to resign in one episode. By the mid-nineties, the old "peaceful white men vs. brutish brown aliens" was beginning to look suspect. The writers, to their credit, deconstructed this dusty Trek trope in two episodes of note. "Nemesis" pits Chakotay against a toothy, hairy, stock warrior race (they're even called "Nemesis" and "Beasts") brutalizing helpless natives who look and sound like nice Europeans. Janeway, while negotiating for his release, beams up some delegates from the planet—and it's a well-bred Nemesis in a dapper suit. The humans on the surface are just figments to entice Chakotay to kill. In "Author, Author", a Federation book publisher tries to game the legal system to exploit the Doctor (and even the crew's "victory" there fell short of having the Doctor recognized as a person under the law). We also learn that the Federation is using sentient holograms like EMH Mark Is as slave labor. In "Living Witness" (yes, this episode again), we see an age-old war from two different historical perspectives. In one, the rubber-headed Vaskans are the traitorous Quislings who sold out the planet in exchange for land. In the Doctor's revised account, the 'human' aliens were indeed the instigators of the bloodbath: the so-called "martyr" of the Kyrians was the one leading the boarding party to attack Voyager. Further muddying the waters is the class division amongst the Kyrians and Vaskans: The prologue is hosted by a Kyrian curator, suggesting that the Kyrians came out on top in the end. But the well-dressed hosts are just "token" Kyrians, elected to give the impression of a balanced debate. This angle played into the Kazons' story very early on. The Kazon were once a Slave Race employed by their white masters, the Trabe, and it's stated that the entire galaxy now rues the day their earned their freedom (erm....). The Kazon are a confused mess of storytelling by writers who intended it as a commentary on redlined city districts and the cycle of crime, but for whatever reason, the species fell back into the famliar "Warlike Alien" role which Trek is used to, and their oppressors were painted with a softer brush. Somebody obviously took notice of this, and sought to rectify it with other races. In "The Killing Game", Captain Janeway stops the Hirogen Hunting the Most Dangerous Game by handing over their hologram technology. As that episode showed, Voyager's crew already use holo-novels that involve shooting holograms for their own entertainment. At what point do the holograms have rights? Is it when they become so advanced they are self-aware? Because in "Flesh and Blood" it turns out the Hirogen have increased their capabilities to make them more challenging prey, until the holograms killed the Hirogen and are now on a crusade to liberate all AI holograms. But they discover the issue isn't simple, at one point liberating a crew of holograms whose programming is so simple they can't comprehend their 'liberation'. They literally are talking machines.

Infinite Supplies: Zigzagged shamelessly according to the needs of this week's script. If a lack of antimatter or deuterium could jumpstart the episode, then it would be a plot point that Voyager needed to resupply. If nobody wanted to talk about fabricating new shuttles to replace the ones that were destroyed last week, then Voyager would just magically have new ones, without even a Hand Wave to explain where they came from. It's parodied in this montage, which counts how many of Voyager's 38 photon torpedoes, which she cannot get more of by any means, are fired over the course of the series. (Hint: many more than 38.) It was done with shuttles more times than one could count, but perhaps most infamously, when the Delta Flyer was blown to smithereens in one episode, and was back in service in the very next episode. It was accompanied by a very casual Lampshade Hanging and then forgotten. Voyager has its energy supplies depleted multiple times per season. Not only should they not be running the holodecks to conserve power, but you would think Janeway should lead by example by going without. Instead we get Sandrine's, the tiki bar, Fair Haven, and Mrs. Davenport's spooky English mansion. Morale is an important thing, but "three hundred deciwats" of memory is a lot to spend on frivolities. This gets the Hand Wave that the holodeck has an independent power system that is completely incompatible with the rest of the ship; this explanation raises many more questions than it answers. There's also the infinite Redshirt Army. The original crew complement was 141 at the beginning of "Caretaker". "The 37's" gives the combined Maquis/Starfleet crew count as 152. And yet we see so many different background filling extras (in the canteen ALONE, besides anywhere else) that one has to wonder whether it was deliberate... In fact, when this forum post breaks down the deaths of all the crew members portrayed onscreen, it turns out that Voyager comes home with more people than she left with (largely due to the Maquis crew), and the crew count appears to be consistently maintained throughout the series. Bear in mind this is a tiny Intrepid-class cruiser, not a Galaxy-class. The background extras would never match as that would mean drawing from the same pool of a 150 or so extras over the course of a seven year series.

Leitmotif
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_9f6fb586
comment
Voyager crashes into a snowball planet just a stone's throw from home, courtesy of a dodgy prototype engine ("Timeless"). Fifteen years later, Chakotay, Kim, and the Doctor work to alert their past selves. The money shot of Voyager buried in a frozen lake (as the theme leitmotif sadly plays) is one of the show's most iconic images.

comment
Feminist Fantasy: The show is fronted by a female Captain and a female lead villain. (Janeway and Seska didn't get too many opportunities to lock horns but the Borg Queen had more alone time with the Captain.) To date it's the only Trek series with a woman in charge of the regulars; technically Kira inheirited DS9 in her respective series finale and held command throughout the relaunch books and Star Trek Online. VOY also featured two other female regulars at all times: Torres, Kes and Kes. Torres is the longest-recurring female engineer in Trek. (TNG had a female engineer in its first season but she vanished after a couple of episodes.) Seven effectively becomes the ship's science officer, again the first female to do so. (She was followed by the less-popular T'Pol on Star Trek: Enterprise). Naomi Wildman was a girl, as well, to contrast with Wesley, Jake and Nog. Lampshaded by none other than John de Lancie:

The Equinox is headed by a headstrong, morally-flexible Captain who is willing to do anything to get his crew home — like using sentient aliens for fuel. ("Equinox") The ship has its own Mark I hologram, only with his ethical subroutines removed. He manages to infiltrate Voyager by stealing the Doctor's emitter and pretending to be him. Fortunately, he proves to be a long-winded bore just like the original, and the EMH boots the imposter out of Sickbay and deletes him before he can order the computer to go kablooey.

The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: "Flesh and Blood." Iden's Rebellion has no qualms about snuffing out those who would deny their right to sentience anyway. Eventually threatens to explode into Man Versus Machine, with every hologram in the Quadrant about to be conscripted into a war against every "organic." "Resistance" has a Rebel Leader who only helps Janeway because she pays him, as opposed to the unquestioning help La Résistance usually give heroes in Space Opera.

Nicknaming the Enemy: In "Nemesis", a group of jungle freedom fighters are engaged in a guerilla war against an inhuman, genocidal adversary they refer to as "beasts", but primarily "the nemesis". It turns out to be part of a brainwashing propaganda campaign. However, the uglier aliens refer to the jungle warriors as their "nemesis" as well, suggesting that they also vilify their enemy.

comment
Living Ship: Voyager has Neural Gel Packs, which were probably intended to act like organic brains or at least small computers. Supposedly they were cutting-edge tech, as Voyager was an advanced ship when it was completed. Of course, they were used several times as a plot complication generator by having them "get an infection." Janeway eventually ordered Torres to replace them with conventional circuits, but the ship never seemed to be any less cutting-edge afterward. Species 8472 were introduced in Voyager, and they had completely organic living ships. Not even the Borg could stand up against one of those babies.

Informed Wrongness: In-Universe, in "Friendship One," an away mission is being organized to a highly radioactive planet and Torres (who is at this point heavily pregnant) wants to go along, while Tom refuses because "she's too delicate." The planet's radiation is then established at 6000 isorems, which is way more than enough for a miscarriage or birth defects (helping push Torres into Too Dumb to Live). In the end, we do see a pregnant woman on the planet who had two miscarriages, a stillborn, and nearly loses her fourth child.

Technobabble: You don't actually have to watch all 168 episodes of Star Trek Voyager; 80% of them can be summed up in this handy 3 minute video. Probably the worst offender of all Star Trek series. There's a scene where the Universal Translator is having difficulty with an alien language, so Janeway tells Harry to 'remodulate the translator'. Reruns on BBC America make fun of this, rolling a promo consisting of nothing but technobabble. There's quite a bit of material to work with.

Compare this with Will Riker and Geordi La Forge's initial jerkassery towards Barclay back when he first joined the Enterprise crew.

Canon Discontinuity

Canon Discontinuity: Threshold. Ironically it must be the single most mentioned Star Trek episode in history. It gets mentioned in every Star Trek forum at least once a day. Braga even recycled it for an ENT episode, perhaps hoping he could get it right this time. The result: Extinction, "one of the singularly most embarrassing episodes of Star Trek I've ever been involved with." But Extinction is still canon. "Deuterium? You can get that anywhere!" is mentioned in one episode, seasons after the "running out of deuterium" stuff. Chatokay's on and off vegetarianism - it actually came and went in two consecutive episodes...he's tucking into Seven's beduvian quail in one episode, and can't drink the meat nectar in the next episode that makes Harry Kim sick. One season 3 episode has Captain Janeway embark on a vision quest to save Kes. Dialogue in-episode reveals that Janeway is a scientist, and her sister had the artistic streak. Three episodes later, "Macrocosm" shows the Captain painting in her ready room. Did she forget that she was the scientist? It could be that this was character development, but it came out of exactly nowhere.

Continuity Overlap
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_a43fd672
comment
Continuity Overlap: VOY ran concurrently with Seasons 3-7 of DS9 and the first three TNG films. Despite being stranded in the Delta Quadrant, the show was nonetheless affected by developments back home: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The introduction of the Maquis (and the Badlands) on DS9 was done specifically to set up VOY. The crew also wear the jumpsuit uniforms created for DS9. And once they re-establish contact with Starfleet in Season 4, the crew finds out the hard way that not only is the Federation embroiled in a bloody war with the Dominion, but the Maquis have also been wiped out. Finally, Defiant-class ships appear in Seasons 4 and 7. Star Trek: Generations: A subversion. While "Caretaker"" premiered three months after the film was released, the Starfleet crew is nonetheless using the redesigned combadges introduced in Generations. Star Trek: First Contact: Once VOY re-establishes contact with Starfleet in Season 4, any scenes or communications with the Alpha Quadrant have Starfleet personnel wearing the film's new black and gray uniforms. In the episode "Hope and Fear" the crew meet an alien who can finally translate a Starfleet message that is heavily encrypted - it shows them the location of a Starfleet ship sent using a prototype drive. In this message the admiral is wearing the new uniform: however, the alien has never seen these so it's questionable how he knows that the uniforms have been changed. Starfleet ships introduced in First Contact also appear in Seasons 4 and 7. The introduction of the Borg Queen also causes headaches for Janeway and company during Seasons 5-7. Star Trek: Insurrection: The Doctor disguises himself as a female Tarlac (a species introduced in the film) while attempting to treat his creator Lewis Zimmerman back the Alpha Quadrant in Season 6's "Life Line".

Meet the New Boss
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_a44cd048
comment
Meet the New Boss: The Kazon feel indistinct from Klingons, minus the rich culture, super-strength, signature weapon, warrior code, quick wits, intimidating ships, intelligence... well, okay, apart from the hair, they're nothing alike. The Hirogen share a few things in common with the Jem'Hadar. Xenophobic, observant to the chain of command, and not without intelligence; but they are hamstrung by a primitive ideology. In "The Killing Game", the Hirogen Alpha frets to Janeway that his species' culture is becoming stagnant. He devises a new "hunting ground" for them on Voyager's expanded holodeck, just like the First in "Hippocratic Oath" beamed his drug-addled troops onto a planet to dry out. "Nemesis" pits Chakotay against the Kradin: a big, toothy, hairy, savage race. They strongly resemble the Naussicans, the brutes who left Picard limping away with an artificial heart (and made one other appearance in ENT). The ending subverted it, when it turned out the Kradin have been wildly exaggerated through war propaganda and caricature. The Vaadwaur are smooth-talking snake people, just like our old friends the Cardassians. In "Dragon's Teeth", the Vaadwaur set about charming the crew while secretly preparing to seize the ship and recapture their old territories. According to Neelix, there exist dozens of old Talaxian folk tales warning of their deceptive nature — "Demon with a golden voice", anyone?

Panspermia
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_a5ab6ea3
comment
The "Year of Hell" two-parter involves a Krenim timeship making subtle and not-so-subtle changes to the timeline hoping to create a perfect timeline where their empire is once again powerful and all their loved ones are alive. One part featured Chakotay offering to erase an insignificant-looking comet from history, thus preventing the Voyager's interference in Krenim affairs. The Krenim captain explains that Chakotay would be wiping out half the species in the sector due to this comet being involved in seeding most of the inhabited planets in the sector billions of years ago. The captain might seem like a bit of a hypocrite for pointing out Chakotay's mistake, but the whole thing is about him trying to fix the mistake he made in the first place. As the timeship itself exists out of time, destroying it at any point causes it to never have been built, and leading to a more or less happy ending for everyone involved.

Gender Is No Object: Starfleet is supposed to be purely integrated with gender no hindrance to attaining any position. The other series didn't quite meet this lofty principle. Female captains popped up in minor, one-shot roles after TOS, and there was Obstructive Bureaucrat Admiral Nechayev, but after DS9 gave its female characters more strength and screentime, Voyager added to this by having a woman captain as a main character and increasing the gender ratio.

Muse Abuse
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_a6baa3a7
comment
Muse Abuse: In "Author, Author", the EMH makes a holonovel about a fictional ship stranded in the Delta Quadrant. It is best described as extreme Muse Abuse of Voyager's crew, so much so that the EMH has to rework the novel. The episode's main conflict is that the publisher won't allow the EMH to revise it, because holograms don't have rights. (The Federation decides that while he can't be classified as a person, he can be classified as an artist.) Notably averted in an earlier episode. While searching through the holodeck's database, Paris finds what appears to be a holonovel casting the Maquis members of the crew as mutineers. Despite this portrayal, even the "villains" happily play along. Ultimately, it's revealed it wasn't even meant to be art, but a training simulation for security members when mutiny was considered a real danger. Then it turns out that one of their old enemies had rigged it to turn into a Death Trap for whoever used it.

Toxic Phlebotinum: In "Course: Oblivion", warp drive radiation itself is dangerous to living beings and substances made of "silver blood", causing them to demolecularize. Also the theta radiation dumped by the Malon as their 'Hat'. The omega molecule is one of the most powerful substances in existence, and the most dangerous: an omega molecule explosion is not only catastrophically destructive, but so damaging to subspace that it rendered warp travel impossible for an entire sector. Starfleet protocol calls for its immediate destruction should it be found, superseding even the Prime Directive.

comment
Status Quo Is God: Happened on occasion, though nowhere near as often as is sometimes believed. It didn't help that such continuity was often covered with throwaway lines or minor plot elements (some of which occurred in the later seasons). There were also several instances where it tried to break out and it had an overarching plot (the journey home), but UPN execs wanted the show to emulate the format of Star Trek: The Next Generation, which itself didn't have many story arcs. Although with the ship itself, it certainly did happen - they traveled through the hostile Delta Quadrant being shot at, banged into, buried in dangerous anomalies, etc. enough to fill 168 episodes for seven years. The ship was always in perfect condition at the start of each episode, and at the end of it all, emerged without a scratch!

Karma Houdini: "The Omega Directive" sees Voyager doom an entire civilization, destroying the unstable Omega molecules which were their last hope, as well as all their research on them. Once it's done, the crew returns the scientist and the aliens give up pursuit and leave. Janeway doesn't even try to provide any assistance to the doomed aliens. The psychic alien from "Persistence Of Vision" who torments people for no reason other than that he can, escapes after the crew breaks free of its influence. Free to continue tormenting anyone he comes across.

Q was from a frivolous yet dangerous omniscient being who delivered some hard lessons to the human race.

The process began with that Robin Hood farce on tMG and his sole DS9 appearance; in both cases he was possesive of Vash, who similarly spurned his advances.

And I Must Scream: In the early episodes, the Doctor couldn't shut off his own program. This annoyed him when people would just leave the room without deactivating him. In one instance, he specifically requests that, should the crew choose to abandon the ship for any reason, they take the time to shut him off before they leave. If they didn't, he'd be stuck in Sickbay until power failed, completely alone. In "The Thaw", Kim gets locked into an computer simulation that resembles a Circus of Fear, controlled by a Monster Clown who happens to be the personification of fear. The Clown has absolute control over the simulation, including the ability to read the minds of all present, and spends all his time tormenting and ridiculing any people unfortunate enough to be trapped with him. When Kim arrives, he finds three aliens who have been there for nineteen years. In "Coda", it's implied that this would have been Janeway's fate if she'd trusted the alien posing as her father and allowed him to lead her to "the afterlife" — actually a hellish Eldritch Location where the Energy Being intended to feed on her soul. In the final season, the Doctor encounters other sentient holograms like himself who have been used for Hunting the Most Dangerous Game. There's no end to their torment because each time they are 'killed', they're just brought back and killed again, and again...

comment
Odd Friendship: Ice Queen Seven of Nine forms relationships with the gregarious Doctor and Tagalong Kid Naomi Wildman. Mainly because they force themselves into her world and aren't easily dismissed. In early seasons, Torres and Kim (the most belligerent, hotheaded Maquis and the most green, wholesome Starfleet officer, respectively). Subverted with Neelix and Tuvok. Neelix tries so, so, so hard to be "Mr. Vulcan's" friend, but Tuvok's response is annoyance at worst and neutrality at best.

Future Imperfect: Lampshaded. Despite Paris being the most knowledgeable crew member of North America's 20th-century history, when Voyager is sent back in time to Earth circa 1996, even he gets a few cultural references, phrases, and mannerisms wrong. A bit of Continuity Snarl in that episode, as Earth was supposed to be locked in the Eugenics Wars at that time. In fact, during Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, they openly state that their ship, the Botany Bay, was launched in 1996!

A variation occurs in "Author, Author"—The Doctor has written a holo-novel in which the user plays the part of an EMH in a triage situation. A bridge officer is brought in with a minor concussion, but there is already a patient dying from a ruptured aorta. Captain Jenkins (Captain Janeway's Evil Counterpart) ends the debate by shooting the poor Red Shirt.

Oh, Crap!: Paris in "Drive" when he realizes he agreed to participate in a shuttle race on a weekend for which he had already scheduled a romantic getaway with B'Elanna. Which is nothing compared to "Collective". The crew of the Delta Flyer are playing poker when they suddenly notice the terrified look on Tom's face, then turn to see a Borg cube bearing down on them. Which is bested by "Scorpion, Part One" with two in quick succession. First, Voyager encounters FIFTEEN Borg cubes. Just one of them managed to destroy 39 ships and kill 11,000 people at Wolf 359, and here Voyager comes across a fleet of them. And they pass by without bothering to assimilate or destroy Voyager. A little later, Voyager runs across those same fifteen cubes... as a debris field. Mass "Oh, Crap!" really doesn't begin to cover it.

comment
Deadpan Snarker: Many. Being lost in the farthest reaches of space gives humor a bitter edge. Every character does this at some point, but a few stick out as the snarkiest of the snarky. Tuvok: As a Vulcan, deadpan is just what they do, but Tuvok takes it up to 11. Even going so far as to rib Captain Janeway as she pilots the ship directly into a pulsar. 7 of 9: a reformed (rebuilt?) Borg drone, she smiles as much as Tuvok does (never, not even when someone literally pulls on their cheeks), and gets off as many digs, including before, during, and after she defeats a Tin-Can Robot. The Doctor: His first duty is providing medical care for the crew of Voyager. His second duty is to take the wind out of the sails of their suicidal plans. Captain Kathryn Janeway once succinctly described her discovery of an illusion as such: "Either I've become impervious to anti-matter explosions or we're still dreaming."

Promotion, Not Punishment
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_afe5728
comment
Promotion, Not Punishment: Admiral Kathryn Janeway violates nearly 154 rules by traveling back in time and swindling the Klingons. The fact that her actions get Voyager home nearly 15 years early and with added technology as a bonus results in her past self getting a promotion... to Admiral. This depends on your interpretation of her promotion; on one hand, yes, she is promoted to Admiral, which is a huge notch in any Starfleet officer's career, and might have been a reward for her valor in getting Voyager home. On the other, it also means that her days of commanding a starship are over. Given that Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant as a result of Janeway's actions, whatever the reasons behind them, this could be a case of her getting "kicked upstairs." It can be seen either way.

Dream Sue: In the episode "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy", the Doctor installs a daydreaming subroutine where he imagines himself constantly having to assume command of Voyager as the Emergency Command Hologram, who gets the crew out of situations even more single-handedly and hammily than most real Star Trek captains. It turns out an alien race monitors these daydreams and thinks they're reality, eventually causing the crew to find out, much to his embarrassment.

Weapon of Mass Destruction: "Dreadnought", "Warhead", "Childs Play" plus the Krenim temporal weapon-ship in "Year of Hell", and nine Species 8472 bioships linking up to destroy an entire Borg planet in "Scorpion". "The Omega Directive" deals with an energy molecule that destroys no less than a 3 light year radius of subspace when it destabilizes, making warp travel PERMANENTLY impossible. The episode focuses on a large enough amount that more than half the entire Delta Quadrant would have been affected.

Retool: While the show never got the kind of drastic overhaul that TNG, DS9, or even Enterprise got, Season 4 saw some major changes to the show and its formula, with Kes being written out and being replaced by Seven of Nine, the Borg and Hirogen becoming the main recurring adversaries instead of the Kazon and Vidiians, more of a focus on the personal lives of the crew (most notably with Tom and B'Elanna starting a relationship), Starfleet becoming aware that Voyager had gotten lost instead of being destroyed, and the show moving more to employing the Timey-Wimey Ball as a Reset Button method instead of just having things resolved off-screen between episodes.

There were several times the crew could have gotten back to the Alpha Quadrant but didn't, "False Profits" probably being the most egregious. The pilot is not actually a case of this, given that they would have needed several hours to bring the Array back online, which, given that they were under attack by Scary Dogmatic Aliens with a damaged ship and a sizable reduction in crew, probably made using the Array less than tenable. However, given the way a lot of characters acted in later episodes, either she didn't divulge this bit of information or the crew got disillusioned and rejected that excuse.

Too Dumb to Live: Seven of Nine's parents. A pair of scientists who plan to study the Borg by sneaking onto Borg Cubes. This could be considered TDTL all on its own, but they also bring their young daughter along with them on their expedition. The Doctor actually gives this a Lampshade Hanging by expressing his disgust over their blatant disregard for their daughter's well-being by bringing her along on such a dangerously idiotic quest. The Srivani. They want to see what happens when they alter a human's brain chemistry to make them totally irrational. Which human do they pick? Captain Janeway. When the head Srivani tries to talk her out of personally piloting the ship between two pulsars—with 1:20 odds of success—Janeway rightly points out that the Srivani are directly responsible for her present insanity. Voyager survives, but one of the Srivani ships is destroyed before it can get away.

Hyper-Competent Sidekick
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_b89ab683
comment
Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Ensign Harry Kim, who counts as a sidekick by virtue of his low rank, despite sometimes being put in charge of the bridge when Janeway, Chakotay, Tuvok and Paris are not around! Seven-of-Nine becomes this, as she is not really a uniformed crewmember, but her incredible scientific knowledge left over from her time in the Borg Collective often provides the Applied Phlebotinum in a given episode. Seven-of-Nine is considered so competent, none of the senior bridge officers refuse her summons when she calls them to the Astrometrics Lab. Note that she has no official rank. The civilian in the lab she built herself routinely interrupts the bridge crew on their daily activities, like running the ship, and no one chafes at the break in command structure. Icheb later takes this role as well, being a Teen Genius due his time in the Borg making him nearly as smart and capable as Seven.

Mad Mathematician: Annorax's timeship is crewed by skilled analysts who take every variable into account when nudging history in the Krenim Impreium's favor. By zapping a rival planet with the temporal-shielded Voyager in the vicinity, it tosses a monkey wrench into the formula, causing the Imprerium to shrink to a pre-warp state. Annorax realizes he can't make any further moves as long as Janeway is tooling about in Krenim space.

Child by Rape
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_bb7ae292
comment
The Seska arc introduces a wildly complicated question when Seska reveals that she forcibly stole Chakotay's DNA and impregnanted herself with it, and later begs for his help when she and his son are in danger. How he's supposed to respond to that is agonizingly difficult. To the show's credit, they do spend a good deal of time dealing with these questions (Chakotay decides to try and get custody and raise him after the spirit quest version of his father makes the observation that the boy is essentially a Child by Rape), but they're ultimately rendered moot when it turns out that the child isn't actually Chakotay's after all. Seska dies, the baby's biological father claims him, and everything goes back to normal.

Putting on the Reich: A quite literal example. In "The Killing Game," the Hirogen take over Voyager and use their holodecks for simulated hunts, one of which is set during WWII. The Hirogen don Nazi uniforms and attempt to hunt down Voyager crew members, who are brainwashed to be La Résistance.

Fleeting Demographic Rule
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_bd8c1248
comment
Fleeting Demographic Rule: The Borg threat tended to flirt with reenactments of Picard and Data's corruption in First Contact, with the Borg Queen making similar proposals to Janeway/Seven. "Unimatrix Zero" goes balls-out and remakes "The Best of Both Worlds", with the entire crew getting assimilated along with the Captain. The list of borrowed TNG scripts is nearly endless. In particular, Seven of Nine's little rebellion in "The Raven" as she subdues the entire crew on her way to the shuttle bay is remarkably similar to Data’s in "Brothers". "Infinite Regress", in which Seven is tormented by the psychic ghosts of people she's assimilated, manages to improve on a Data-centric TNG episode ("Masks") which, in its original form, was considered camp at best. The Seventh and final season saw the well of TNG stories running dry. A few from DS9 began to crop up as well: Klingons attempt to board Voyager in a sequence reminiscent of "The Way of the Warrior". "Endgame" wrapped with a toast between the crew in some sort of bar. "What You Leave Behind" wrapped with Sisko giving a toast to his crew in Vegas lounge. VOY recycles its own stories, too, what with "Memorial" being a replay of "Remember" and "Tsunkatse" revolving around a combat sport like the previous year's "The Fight".

Married in the Future: One episode had Kes witness a future where she and Tom Paris were married and had children following "The Year of Hell" but ultimately it didn't happen this way partly because Kes retained her knowledge of the future and was able to warn the crew. By the time the "Year of Hell" actually happened Kes had left the ship and Tom later ended up marrying B'lanna who had been killed in the original timeline.

Mate or Die
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_bed53353
comment
Mate or Die: Yup, this returns with a twist in "Blood Fever" when young background Vulcan officer Vorik tries to force himself on B'Elanna Torres during his pon farr, leading her to suffer the blood fever as well. Though for the sake of Plot Armor they have to drop the idea that a Vulcan must return to their homeworld as well as their mate. In a later episode, Tuvok also has to deal with his pon farr (it being almost seven years into the trip by this time) With a little help from the holodeck, courtesy of Tom Paris (who makes the case that technically if the hologram is of your wife, it's not cheating), he eventually manages to work through it. This is somewhat played for laughs, as the holodeck gets cut off right in the middle of the program the first time; in a later conversation after he gets the program back online for some uninterrupted quality time, he also complains that the simulated wife's ears were a bit longer than his actual wife's, to which Tom Paris responds with an appeal to artistic license.

Adrenaline Makeover: Try to imagine a retooling of something like "Dark Frontier" (Borg heist film!) or "Year of Hell" (Das Boot IN SPACE]!), or even "The Killing Game" ('Allo 'Allo!...with aliens!) being retooled for a JJ Abrams blockbuster. It would work a lot better as Star Trek theatrical releases than something like DS9's "Homefront"/"Paradise Lost" or "In Purgatory’s Shadow"/"By Inferno’s Light", even if those work well as television stories and probably have superior acting than today's Trek.

Dull Surprise: Chakotay was noted for having the emotional range of a tree stump under most circumstances. Robert Beltran actually can act; he just didn't like his role much, and didn't want to waste too much effort on it. Garrett Wang claims that the cast was constantly being given direction to tone down their performances, with Rick Berman telling him it was because it made the aliens seem more human.

comment
Informed Attribute: Starfleet felt the need to thread bio-neural circuitry throughout Voyager. The gel packs in the bulkheads have actually made Voyager more vulnerable to outside threats (i.e. being infected by Neelix’s aged cheese), and it's even mentioned that the bio-neural gel packs cannot be replicated, making them harder to replace. Supposedly, the bio-neural packs are more efficient at keeping track of the crew (not really, Chell actually complained about that in "Repression") and can pilot the ship better than even Tom Paris, making the helm utterly redundant. Despite Janeway's repeated claims to the contrary, though, the crew still relied on Tom to pilot them out of danger. From Jim Wright's review of "Dark Frontier" The Voyager's complete crew complement is alluded to, but the main cast receives so much screen time, it seems like they're the only ones running the ship.

Offscreen Moment of Awesome: In 2.1 ("The 37's"), the Voyager crew discover a planet in the Delta Quadrant containing a vibrant civilization of humans (believe it or not, it kinda does make sense in context). The leader of this civilization offers to show Janeway how wonderful and beautiful their cities are. He apparently does, but the next cut after that offer is to Janeway recording a captain's log in her ready room about how he was right and the cities really were amazing. Guess there wasn't time or money enough to actually show them.

Shout-Out
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: The opening to the pilot "Caretaker" bears more than a passing resemblance to the opening of A New Hope: an Opening Scroll giving a bit of backstory, followed by a pan to a running lightfight between a small rebel ship (Chakotay's Val Jean) and a large enemy ship (a Cardassian Galor-class destroyer). Only difference is, the rebel ship escapes, by pulling a Try and Follow into the Badlands' plasma storms. Rain to the Doctor in "Future´s End": "we have the Doctor. A guy with the worst, worst taste in clothing I have ever seen." Taking into account that this is a time travel episode, it is very likely a shoutout to Doctor Who. Seven of Nine's name is a shoutout to the short-lived 1960s sitcom My Living Doll, in which Julie Newmar played a voluptous blonde female android codenamed AF 709 ("seven-oh-nine"). In "Barge of the Dead", when Voyager is depicted as the Klingon hell, Neelix is introduced as the Ambassador to the Recently Deceased. Captain Proton is fraught with Flash Gordon references. Dr Chaotica largely appears to be a Ming the Merciless expy, right down to the castle and its defenses. Proton's rocket ship also has clear Flash Gordon influences. Satan's Robot is the "Republic Robot", an overused prop in various Republic serials including ''Mysterious Doctor Satan.'' Finally, Proton's leather jacket with jetpack controls are the same as those used by Commando Cody/The Rocketman. The end of "Deadlock" has a subtle one to Star Trek III: The Search for Spock: a Vidiian boarding party reaches the duplicate Voyager's bridge only to be greeted by the last seconds of a self-destruct countdown. The Pralor Automated Personnel Units◊ from "Prototype" strongly resemble the mechanical policemen from THX 1138. In "Spirit Folk", someone sarcastically asked Janeway if she's the faerie queen. This is reference to Kate Mulgrew playing Queen Titania in Gargoyles.

Cool Starship: The Voyager; a ship roughly half the size of a Galaxy-class starship all alone in the meanest, most inhospitable corner of the galaxy. She's also the fastest starship in the fleet at the time, with a maximum speed of warp 9.975, and receives upgrades throughout the voyage to her capabilities. The sleek styling, and vaguely bird-of-prey proportions are icing on the cake. Special mention also goes to the USS Prometheus; a ship designed during the Dominion War back in the Alpha Quadrant that can split into three separate ships to engage the enemy from multiple directions.

Last Minute Hookup: Seven and Chakotay. Regarded as a Crack Pairing by some fans as there had been no previous UST between the two (except in a holodeck fantasy) and whose relationship, in their meager scenes together, was marked by outright disdain. In fact, the producers had even rejected the suggestion that this could ever happen when Seven and Chakotay were stranded on a planet together in "Survival Instinct", just a few months before they hooked up in "Endgame". Though Star Trek: Picard retroactively made this the Last Het Romance for Seven.

Informed Ability: Neelix conning the crew into thinking he's an expert in something, which often gets people killed. (See "Basics") This is eventually lampshaded by Neelix where he confides that he's just a cook — who sometimes likes to pretend he's a diplomat. Mainly he's there to keep morale up. He claims to be a survival expert, but he does things that anyone with survival skills would never do (which resulted in at least two redshirts getting killed on his watch and a hostage situation with primitive natives, all in a single episode). He claims to be a rock climbing expert, but he nearly killed Torres by grabbing ahold of her hips to save himself after he slipped. He claims to be a great chef, but not only did he caused a shipwide system failure with a lump of cheese, but his cooking is almost universally reviled. B'Elanna is a scientific genius, despite not knowing knowing Space has 3 dimensions and literally cannot identify crap even with a tricorder (as in, in the episode "The 37's", there is a situation where she cannot identify the substance she is scanning as manure). As it happens, her duties in Engineering were gradually usurped by the much more capable Seven of Nine.

The Chains of Commanding
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_caf8c66c
comment
The Chains of Commanding: Captain Janeway — not only is she Lonely at the Top, she can't even commiserate with other Starfleet captains or superior officers. She can talk things over with Chakotay, but forget about exploring that Unresolved Sexual Tension with him. And at the back of her mind is always the knowledge that it was her decision that got them all stranded in the Delta Quadrant in the first place. In "Night", she suffers a full-on Heroic BSoD and even when she snaps out of it to deal with the Villain of the Week, Chakotay has to forestall some suicidal heroics on her part. "Equinox" has an Hourglass Plot in which another Starfleet captain in the same position who crossed the Moral Event Horizon and Janeway end up switching roles. And "Endgame" has her future self violating the timeline to Set Right What Once Went Wrong.

Spaceship Girl
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_cb63f039
comment
Spaceship Girl: Voyager's Computer had a bit more of a personality during "Q2" thanks to young Q's meddling "Alice" in the episode of the same name. She's a Sentient Vehicle that establishes a direct neural link to her pilots—Tom Paris in this case—to better control them. She appears as a beautiful woman who is only visible to Tom (an alien who sold the ship is shown to see her as a female member of his own species), and is psychotically possessive of her owner. There was a similar episode where B'Elanna had to persuade a rogue Interplanetary Missile Girl that it was targeting a noncombatant world. It wasn't just any girl, either - she'd reprogrammed it herself, and given it her own voice (the old voice was a Cardassian male which annoyed her).

comment
Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: features prominently in a great many episodes, but especially in "Coda" in which Janeway has one of those near-death experiences known to some of us. Is Captain Janeway's experience really just another first contact with a strange alien species (which was detectable on a medical tricorder scan of her cortex), or (far from the first) contact with someone from the afterlife? The story reports, you decide. Also at the end of "Sacred Ground" Janeway is left wondering whether the Vision Quest some aliens put her through was supernatural or had a technobabble explanation.

Letting Her Hair Down: Janeway, Kes, and Seven do this a few times. With Janeway and Kes, it's usually in the form of costumed Holodeck programs.

Seen It All
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_cd7ef676
comment
Seen It All: By the third season, the appearance of being caught in a temporal loop just prompts Janeway to scan for the appropriate particles. In TNG, figuring out there even is a loop is a significant part of the episode.note Presumably, Picard's report on the incident prompted such procedures. Summed up when she says in one episode "We're Starfleet officers. Weird is part of the job."

Antagonist Title
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_cde51255
comment
Antagonist Title: "The Swarm" has Voyager swarmed by a swarm of tiny spaceships from an Absolute Xenophobe race with a serious aversion to trespassers. "Warlord": Kes's mind is taken over by the warlord in question. "Nemesis": The Nemesis are a monstrous species of aliens engaged in a war of extermination against the humanoid natives. Subverted, as it's revealed to be a simulation run by the natives to brainwash new recruits, and the "warlike aliens" were the ones who helped rescue a kidnapped Chakotay. They also refer to the humanoids as their Nemesis.

comment
My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: From "Ashes to Ashes": Janeway's body language nearly causes a diplomatic incident at one stage. In "Innocence," Chakotay describes how he once met a Tarkannan ambassador and made the traditional gesture for "hello." Then he found out that Tarkannan males and females use different styles of movement and his gesture was actually propositioning the ambassador.

War Memorial
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_cf4294df
comment
War Memorial: The aptly titled episode "Memorial" shows an interesting twist. The memorial is programmed to Mind Rape anyone who passed within a certain distance of the planet that it was located on. Passersby would relive the events of the war. Once the crew figured out what was going on, Janeway set up beacons in the surrounding area to alert others to stay away, lest they succumb to the same torment they and many others before them went through.

Debate and Switch
 Star Trek: Voyager / int_d1b19b75
comment
Debate and Switch: In "Scientific Method", it is revealed that the crew have been the subjects of medical experiments by an alien species (a thinly-veiled allusion to animal testing). Janeway finally manages to get the experiments aborted by flying Voyager into a pulsar, which is stated to be nearly-certain death, which scares the aliens off and destroys one of their ships that doesn't get away in time. Of course, Voyager survives. The reason this is this trope is that Janeway is only acting that way because of the experiments of the aliens. The Seska arc introduces a wildly complicated question when Seska reveals that she forcibly stole Chakotay's DNA and impregnanted herself with it, and later begs for his help when she and his son are in danger. How he's supposed to respond to that is agonizingly difficult. To the show's credit, they do spend a good deal of time dealing with these questions (Chakotay decides to try and get custody and raise him after the spirit quest version of his father makes the observation that the boy is essentially a Child by Rape), but they're ultimately rendered moot when it turns out that the child isn't actually Chakotay's after all. Seska dies, the baby's biological father claims him, and everything goes back to normal. In "Shattered," Voyager is split into 37 different timeframes. Chakotay, the only one originating from the proper timeframe, enlists the help of a Janeway from before Voyager was launched into the Delta Quadrant, injecting her with a special chroniton-infused serum so that she can exist in the other timeframes. Along the way, she begins to learn about all of the crazy stuff that's happened to Voyager throughout its run in the Delta Quadrant and blames herself for it. She wants to modify Chakotay's plan to fix things so that all of Voyager is back in the proper timeframe so that it is instead in her timeframe, and thus she can make it so that it never goes into the Delta Quadrant. Chakotay tells her that she's not seeing the big picture - all of the families and relationsships that have formed on Voyager and how everyone's grown. He also says that it's presumptuous of her to think that she has the right to change everyone's future. Yet, in the series finale "Endgame," this is exactly what happens. Admiral Janeway returns from the future with a plan to get Voyager home. There's maybe about two minutes of hand-wringing about the ethics of this at most, with most of the rest of the story spent on the ironing-out and execution of the plan, the upshot being that it works out exactly as intended and Voyager gets home nearly 16 years before it did in Admiral Janeway's timeline.

Stolen Good, Returned Better: You would expect that the ship would be heavily damaged with a massive loss of life by the time it got back to Earth, but Voyager is actually in better shape than when she left. Her Borg-enhanced torpedoes can
