* JustFollowingOrders: Sometimes saving the timeline means doing things that, honestly, they don't want to. Case in point, in the Tier II Transmission, you find out that one Commander Nereda is forced to aid the Obsidian Order on her homeworld of Cardassia Prime from setting off a bomb. Doing so ended up preventing a peaceful democratic Cardassian government from forming, but [[spoiler:saved a young Dukat's life.]]
* PoliceAreUseless: The TDI {{NPC}}s are, to a man, completely and utterly incompetent at anything to do with their job descriptions and consistently need to be bailed out by the present-day protagonists who, per the Temporal Prime Directive, '''shouldn't have been allowed to become involved to begin with'''. On at least two occasions, major TDI personnel drop their temporal beacon with their reports on them, only for said reports to be picked up by a native resident of that time period ( [[spoiler: Scotty & Garak, to be precise]] ) and have a habit of showing up ''late'' to temporal distress calls or timeline alterations. See also the obvious method to foil Noye stealing the ''Annorax'' that they completely and utterly failed to spot: going back in time to before he stole it to disable the now-PointlessDoomsdayDevice.

* [[{{PoliceAreUseless}} Time Police are Useless]]: The TDI NPCs have a bad habit of not doing their job right. On at least two occasions, major TDI personnel drop their temporal beacon with their reports on them, only for said reports to be picked up by a native resident of that time period ( [[spoiler: Scotty & Garak, to be precise]] ) and have a habit of showing up ''late'' to temporal distress calls or timeline alterations.

* TokenEvilTeammate: The Hierarchy. The Kazon and Hirogen are a bit too splintered to consistently join the Alliance, so those of them that ''are'' Alliance-aligned and remain loyally so look relatively good in comparison, and the Hazari have their firm loyalty to agreements to fall back on, but the Hierarchy only really joined with the Alliance because they ended up deciding that'd be the best option for their profit margins. Before that happens they're the enemy faction in several patrol missions, doing various underhanded things, and in [[spoiler: a timeline where Voyager never awoke the Vaadwaur, they're projected to become the local Iconian proxies instead]]

** MoralMyopia: [[spoiler:He blames the Federation for having a cavalier attitude towards temporal manipultion, when he himself was a vocal proponent of using the ''Annorax'' even after its incursion failed.]]

** SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: His counterpart in the ''Yesterday's Enterprise'' timeline also [[spoilers: desires to use time-travel to bring back his wife and get revenge for his loss -- the difference is, in that timeline he lost his wife to a mundane if brutal Dominion invasion, and he's managed to figure out that his current timeline (where the Dominion stands triumphant) is itself the result of temporal interference, so his goal is to counter the interference and restore a timeline where the Federation still exists and could fight the Dominion.]]
