Added DiffLines:

* RegionalRedecoration: ''Future's End'' makes mention of the Hermosa earthquake that hits Los Angeles in 2047, causing it to partially sink into the Pacific. By the 24th century, it's become the world's largest coral reef.

Added DiffLines:

*DeadpanSnarker: 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 giant 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.

* {{Expy}}: The basic concept - a spaceship and crew lost in space and trying to find a way home - is similar to, well, ''Series/LostInSpace''.



** The only Star Trek series with a female captain.
** It also featured two other female regulars at all times (Torres and either Seven or Kes).

** The only Star Trek series to date with a female captain.
** It also featured two other female regulars at all times (Torres times: Torres and either Seven or Kes).Kes. Torres becomes the first ongoing female engineer in Trek history (TNG had a female engineer in its first season but she disappeared after only a couple of episodes), while Seven effectively becomes the ship's co-science officer, again the first female to do so (she was later followed in this regard by T'Pol on ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'').



* FreshClue: In "[[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS1E4Phage 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

* FriendlyEnemy: Q and Janeway actually get on rather well.

* ComicBookAdaptation: Malibu Comics initially won the rights to ''Voyager'' as a companion to its ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine 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 Creator/DCComics due to it launching a new Paramount Comics imprint with MarvelComics, 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''.

* CloningBodyParts: Via replicators. In "Emanations" the Doctor resurrects an alien brain cancer victim by removing the tumor from her brain stem, replicating and implanting replacement tissue, and zapping her with the [[Website/SFDebris On-Button Hypospray]].

** Website/SFDebris makes the case that Tom Paris easily is the most over-qualified man in the history of the Federation. Ace pilot, field medic, ship designer, commando... the list is endless!
-->''"And this is the guy that Starfleet ''doesn't'' want?!"''
** Also a case with perpetual 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!

* OtherMeAnnoysMe: As WebSite/SFDebris noted about whenever Janeway met various dopplegangers;
--> '''[=SFDebris=]''': Whenever we get two Janeways in the same room, they will ''always'' argue with one another.



-->'''Website/SFDebris:''' Imagine if the torpedo had actually ''collided'' with him! It just ''might'' have killed him!



** 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'. As WebSite/SFDebris points out, this means about the same thing as hitting it. He also noted (in his review of the cuckoo episode "Threshold") that one device they claim to use is "Multi-spectral warp field generator," which he says is basically a ship powered by rainbows. He also wondered if Technobabble was the result of Starfleet having aphasia.

* DistinctionWithoutADifference: An away team explores a derelict Borg cube in "Unity":
-->'''B'Elanna:''' It's like a GhostShip.
-->'''Tuvok:''' Allowing yourself to become apprehensive can only be counterproductive, Lieutenant.
-->'''B'Elanna:''' I'm not being apprehensive, Tuvok, I'm just nervous as hell.



* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: 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.

** ''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.

Morale is an important thing, but "three hundred deciwats" of memory is a lot to spend on frivolities. This gets the HandWave that the holodeck has an independent power system which is completely incompatible with the rest of the ship; this explanation raises many more questions than it answers.

* KarmaHoudini: "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 its done the crew returns the scientist and the aliens give up pursuit and leave.

** 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.

* TheArtifact: Neelix was originally supposed to be ''Voyager'''s guide through the Delta Quadrant. 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, as ''Voyager'' had moved on from the area of space he was familiar with, making him useless as a guide. The show tried to keep him relevant by making him 'the ship's ambassador and "moral officer" but this did very little to give Neelix's an important role in the series.

** 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 TagalongKid.
