** Averted in an early episode when Voyager's new Chief Engineer B'Elanna Torres tells Captain Janeway that she won't be ready before tomorrow. Janeway says she wants the task done by the end of the day and starts to walk off, this being how the conversation would end in any other Trek series. B'Elanna however stops her. "No, Captain. When I say tomorrow, I mean tomorrow. I don't exaggerate. Tomorrow is the best I can do." The next day when Janeway calls to tell them to hurry up, she's surprised to find they've already completed the job quickly and efficiently.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'':
** Averted in an early episode. When Captain Janeway tells her new chief engineer B'Elanna Torres to get a job done in less time than she estimated, B'Elanna proudly tells her that she isn't the kind of engineer who artificially inflates her estimates to make herself look good.

** When the crew first seize the Liberator, Jenna says she might eventually work out how to make this unfamiliar alien vessel start and stop. As their guards are getting impatient to know what's happened to them, Blake says they have two minutes, and goes to seal the airlock. They get 'start' right JustInTime to save Blake's life from a guard who's about to shoot him.

** In ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', they had a subversion which was obviously quite deliberate. B'Elanna gives Janeway an estimate for how long repairs will take, is told she needs it done in roughly half the time, and then is confused before saying her original estimate is how long the repairs will take.

** A chilling example in "Breakdown". A neurosurgeon is operating on a member of the crew, but Blake realizes he's stalling until a Federation pursuit force arrives.

** Scotty explains to Geordi he should always inflate numbers to appear like a genius in ''Relics.'' {{Deconstructed}} as we find out Scotty's inflation of numbers actually caused Starfleet to use their engines at a only portion of their full power ''because they assumed he was right.'' Scotty is rightly appalled by this.
