** 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''.)

* PuttingOnTheReich: A quite literal example. In "The Killing Game," Hirogens take over voyager and use their holodecks for simulated hunts one of which is set during WWII. The Hirogens don NAZI uniforms and attempt to hunt down Voyager crew members who are brainwashed to be LaResistance.

* ArtisticLicenseTraditionalChristianity: In "Fair Haven," one of the villagers tells the Doctor (who's playing a priest) that he's "broken the Fifth Commandment again." The Doctor brushes him off, telling him to "just recite ten Our Father's and you'll be fine." "Our Father" is a Catholic prayer, the Doctor's costume is that of a Catholic priest, the setting is Ireland (which is predominately Catholic), and right after, the villager does the Catholic Sign of the Cross. However, the Fifth Commandment in the Catholic Church is "Thou Shalt Not Kill."

However, the writers were either thinking of the relatively innocuous ''Protestant'' Fifth Commandment in Commandment, "Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother," or telling a seriously dark joke. The Catholic bible divides its chapters into slightly different verses, with the result that the Catholic Church Church's fifth commandment is "Thou ''"Thou Shalt Not Kill.""''

* InfiniteSupplies: Zigzagged shamelessly according to the [[RuleOfPlot 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 HandWave to explain where they came from. Parodied in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIGxMENwq1k 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: [[BeyondTheImpossible many]].)

** 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.
** Pretty much anything involving Neelix fits. He claims to be a survival expert, but he does things that [[TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled 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.

** 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" [[spoiler:where the Doctor is guilt-ridden over his choice to save Harry Kim as opposed to the expendable crewmember.]]
