*** There may be a smidge of FridgeBrilliance here. This is Chakotay's native American tribe about 400 years in the future - their actual culture (of nowadays) is probably long forgotten, and all the knowledge they have left of it is what was in the media (including Hollywood)! And so their behaviour has gradually moved towards that, not unlike Tom Paris's creation of an [[Oireland Oirish]] village.

** 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!

-->'''Janeway:''' Time travel. Ever since my first day in the job as a Starfleet Captain I swore I'm never let myself get caught in [[TemporalParadox one of these godforsaken paradoxes]]. [[TimeyWimeyBall The future is the past, the past is the future]]. It all [[MindScrew gives me a headache]].

* SpaceIsolationHorror: It had a couple of episodes where Seven of Nine and/or the Doctor were the only crew members immune to the Stellar Anomaly of the Week and thus had to command the ship by themselves for long periods of time when the rest of the crew hibernated in stasis pods or were under the mental control of aliens.

* DullSurprise: 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''.

* DullSurprise: 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''.

* TheChainsOfCommanding: Captain Janeway -- not only is she LonelyAtTheTop, she can't even commiserate with other Starfleet captains or superior officers. She can talk things over with her [[NumberTwo Chakotay]], but forget about exploring that UnresolvedSexualTension 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 HeroicBSOD and even [[ShesBack when she snaps out of it]] to deal with the VillainOfTheWeek, Chakotay has to forestall some [[DeathSeeker suicidal heroics on her part.]] "Equinox" has an HourglassPlot in which another Starfleet captain in the same position who crossed the MoralEventHorizon and Janeway end up switching roles. And "Endgame" has her future self violating the timeline to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.

** In "Shattered", Voyager is split into different timelines which Janeway and Chakotay must pass through to solve the problem. One of them is a future Voyager where they've both been killed years before, though everything else appears alright.

* OverrankedSoldier: {{Inverted|Trope}}. Ensign Harry Kim should've gotten an automatic promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade at the eighteen-month mark at the latest.

* OverrankedSoldier: {{Inverted|Trope}}. 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 LimitedAdvancementOpportunities 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.

*** AcceptableBreaksFromReality: 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.

* ShinyLookingSpaceships: ''USS Voyager'', despite being hammered by constant alien attacks, and sand-blasted by planetary rings in every TitleSequence. Then the ''Delta Flyer'' shows the flag in this area too.
