* ForgottenPhlebotinum: Averted as Seven wants to keep working on the Quantum Slipstream Drive. This leads to the events of "[[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS5E6Timeless Timeless]]".

* ForgottenPhlebotinum: Averted as Seven wants to keep working on the Quantum Slipstream Drive. This leads to the events of "[[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS5E6Timeless Timeless]]". (It also gets a namecheck 900 years later in ''[[Series/StarTrekDiscovery DISCO]]'': "[[Recap/StarTrekDiscoveryS3E01ThatHopeIsYouPartOne That Hope Is You, Pt 1]]," where it is just as unusable. So far the drive's only reliable use is in the not-precisely-canon [[Literature/StarTrekVoyagerRelaunch relaunch novels]].)


** The Starfleet admiral in the message is Admiral Hayes, who ordered Picard and the ''Enterprise''-E [[GoLookAtTheDistraction to patrol the Neutral Zone]] while he led the defensive battle against the Borg in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''. The film never said [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse whether he'd survived after his ship was destroyed]], but apparently he did.

Added DiffLines:

* TooGoodToBeTrue: Janeway finds it a little too convenient that a shiny new Starfleet ship that could ferry everyone home in a few months just dropped into her lap. Not to mention that it somehow auto-piloted itself all the way across a galaxy where dangerous anomalies and hostile aliens are a weekly occurrence, and it sat adrift for who-knows-how-long without being scavenged by someone else.


* The47Society: The ''Dauntless'' has had 47 trial runs.


* BeneathSuspicion: Arturis plants fake evidence against Seven in case the crew becomes suspicious, but Janeway knows it's bogus without even looking at it.



* ImplausibleDeniability: When his ruse is discovered, Arturis tries to claim that he saw Seven modify parts of the message and insists they'll find proof if they search her logs. Janeway knows it's bogus without even looking at it, because he's asking her to believe Seven somehow procured an entire starship from nowhere.



* IrrevocableOrder: Arturis burns out the navigation controls to make rerouting the ship impossible, rather than risk Janeway and Seven stopping the ship somehow. [[TemptingFate Then Voyager turns up]].



* NothingCanStopUsNow: Arturis says this after locking the controls. [[TemptingFate Then Voyager turns up]].



* TheTriple: Done for a RuleOfThrees, first as a joke, then seriously.
-->'''Janeway:''' Admiral Hayes. Good man. Fine officer. [[OldWindbag Bit of a windbag.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring: The encrypted message from Starfleet Command that Janeway's been trying to decode since "Hunters"? Turns out it's just a collection of long range star maps of the Delta Quadrant and an apology video from Admiral Hayes.

Added DiffLines:

* MulticulturalAlienPlanet: Harry Kim mentions that Earth has hundreds of alien races living on it.

* BittersweetEnding: In the end, the Voyager crew learns how to reproduce a quantum slipstream drive that later proves instrumental in hastening the trip home, but Arturis can not forgive the Voyager crew for the inadvertent assimilation of his race, and Janeway & her crew now have to live with learning that they accidentally enabled the Borg to overpower another civilization. Arturis also can not move on and help rebuild his civilization and allows the Borg to assimilate him.

Added DiffLines:

* FragileSpeedster: The ''Dauntless'' may be extremely fast with her quantum slipstream drive, but her DeflectorShields are no match for a few torpedoes from ''Voyager''.


* UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway: The quantum slipstream upgrades to ''Voyager''. They succeed, but prove to be too dangerous for continued use -- at least until "[[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS5E6Timeless Timeless]]" in the following season, as well as the expanded Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse.
