Added DiffLines:

** Neelix's Nihiliphobia in this episode is clearly a byproduct of his near death (non) experience in "Mortal Coil"

Added DiffLines:

* SlowElectricity: While traveling through an area with no stars, the Voyager suddenly loses power. The lights start going out throughout the ship, with some areas and items going dark before others.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSpock: Although he's never really gotten close to Tuvok (that whole Federation spy thing still rankles), Chakotay wants some Vulcan clarity on how to handle Janeway.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Harry winces in pain as Constance screams right next to his ear.
** Before that (when "not" screaming) Constance look of bemusement as the Doctor prattles on about his opera being interrupted.

** Played more seriously (as well as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming) when the crew refuse to go along with Janeway's orders to strand her in the Void.

Added DiffLines:

** Despite Seven's handwave about sub-systems being unaffected, the holodeck program continues to play in the dark. This means that the projection system that makes everything appear monochromatic is part of the holodeck sub-system, but the actual lights within the simulation are physical lights in the holodeck, which directly conflicts with what we've seen of holodeck's before.

Added DiffLines:

* StreamingStars: The ''lack'' of them is disconcerting, as it's harder to tell if they're still at warp.


* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: The Void is so vast you can't even see the stars, yet the Malon are dumping enough radiation there to poison the inhabitants.

* CallBack: An InUniverse version; Janeway is faced with another decision that could condemn ''Voyager'' to taking the long way home, as when she destroyed the Caretaker Array.
** Janeway's self-doubt also makes sense in the light of the previous episode "Hope and Fear", where [[HopeSpot yet another chance to get back to the Alpha Quadrant]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption turned out to be a dud]], and she had the [[WhatTheHellHero consequences of her command decisions thrown in her face by Arturis]].
** ''Captain Proton'' is the apparent result of Tom wanting to write a holonovel in "Worst Case Scenario". He wanted ''Insurrection Alpha'' to forgo realism for RuleOfDrama; his new holoprogram [[WorldOfHam succeeds admirably]].

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: When ''Voyager'' suddenly goes dark.
--> '''Harry:''' I was hoping for a change of pace, but a blackout wasn't what I had in mind.


Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: InUniverse--the Doctor's description of what it feels like to be deactivated doesn't help the nihilophobic Neelix feel better.


* MsFanservice: What [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blonde]], [[BuxomIsBetter busty]], [[BareYourMidriff belly-bearing]] Constance Goodheart is, besides DamselInDistress.
