Decisions and Destiny Part One Chapter 2, a startrek: voyager fanfic | FanFiction
Dynamic Communication on Star Trek U.S.S. Voyager To communicate more effectively with Tuvok, Captain Janeway needs to do the following: 1. .. regarding my orders banning black-market bartering for a possible shortcut home with the. The double-length pilot episode saw the USS Voyager, under the command of Captain Kathryn Janeway, called in to apprehend a paramilitary group led by. JANEWAY: I'm sorry, Mister Guill, but that's my final offer. TUVOK: For example, if we find ourselves with a hostile alien in our NIMIRA: How long had you been in the market place when the attack occurred? . It's bad for negotiations, it's bad for relationships, and it's certainly been bad for B'Elanna.
Deep Space NineVoyager very much represented an Adrenaline Makeover for the Trek franchise, with a bigger emphasis on action. This was aided in large part by the Delta Quadrant being seemingly the most savage of the four Quadrants — nearly every race the Voyager Crew meet is as xenophobic as they are powerful. The series also toyed with improved CGI effects and a couple of two-part telemovies featuring the Borg, some of which were rather epic. See also the Star Trek: Voyager Relaunch for the show's continuation in novel form.
The first Star Trek: Elite Force video game takes place in this show, and the actors from the show provide their voices for their counterparts except Jeri Ryan as Seven-Of-Nine, until an expansion pack including her was released. Elite Force is usually considered to be one of the best Trek computer games ever released, and the level of consistency between the show and the game's content is probably one of the main reasons why. In the game, you're issued bulky phaser rifles, beam over to Borg cubes, and kick ass, not unlike in those VOY episodes where the show was firing on all cylinders.
Like all Trek shows, Voyager has its own episode crowner. This show provides examples of the following tropes: Primitives, volcanoes, and giant lizards. II" is the last straw where the show tipped over from being relatively hard sci-fi to a pulp adventure serial. No-nonsense Janeway turns over some rocks and instructs her crew to eat the grubs they find underneath.
The complete series DVD collection contains a total of 47 discs, and the trope was a Running Gag among the writers. The unnamed aliens in "The Swarm". Voyager's crew find out little about them because they're determined to prevent any outside species from doing so. The Starfish Aliens Species are initially portrayed as the most genocidal species that Starfleet has ever encountered. After the hostile Borg invade their home dimension, the genetically superior aliens embark on a crusade across the Milky Way to annihilate all other lifeforms, not just Borg, because they believe that their mere existence might be a threat to their purity.
They mercilessly destroy billions of Borg before their invasion is halted by a temporary Borg-Voyager alliance. The following season, this is subverted when they are retconned into having only acted out of self-defense, and they're actually open to diplomacy.
Captain Janeway is engaged to a civilian named Mark Johnson when the titular ship becomes stranded on the other side of the galaxy. Mark eventually marries someone else, which Janeway finds out when Starfleet reestablishes contact with Voyager in " Hunters ", 14 months after the ship was declared missing in action and she was declared Legally Dead.
Torres in "The Q and the Grey. Try to imagine a retooling of something like "Dark Frontier" Borg heist film! Played with in "Blink of an Eye", with two scientists trying to discover if there's anyone on board Voyager, which has been in their sky for their civilization's entire history due to Year Inside, Hour Outside.
The Scully doubts there's anyone on board, but when the Mulder asks why he's on the mission in the first place, he adds that he doubts everything - including his own doubts. If the Doctor's programming isn't getting messed with, then it's a sentient Weapon of Mass Destruction twice! The robot army in "Prototype", the adaptive missiles in "Dreadnought" and "Warhead", and the holograms in "Flesh and Blood".
Star Trek: Voyager (Series) - TV Tropes
In most cases their main advocate on the ship usually The Doctor or B'Elanna was forced to put them down to protect the Quadrant. Zimmerman on DS9, rubbing his forehead at the thought of those silly conspiracy nuts back home. It's a good in-joke if you're familiar with this show. How they ended up in the Delta Quadrant in the first place in "Caretaker". Plus there's the Vidiians seeking to steal the crew's organs to replace their own diseased tissue. Also seen in "Heroes and Demons" and "Displaced".
All Just a Dream: In "Nemesis", Chakotay was being brainwashed to hate the Kadrin through a simulation that depicted them as monsters. Everything that happened from his viewpoint, until Tuvok found him, never did. The image of Seska and Cullah strutting onto the Bridge as Janeway and her crew are held at gunpoint is a worthy successor to "Best of Both Worlds", also written by Piller. Alas it gets resolved about as elegantly as BOBW did next season.
The Next Generationis trying to stop them to protect the timeline. The final episode "Endgame" has a similar premise — the Bad Future is only so from Janeway's perspective. Her future self is an Insane Admiral who goes back in time to get Voyager home quicker.
Even the number of clans change from day to day, as does the size of the territory they claim. Subverted with Species They're introduced as a monolithic, xenophobic, omnicidal race of telepathic aliens, but later revealed to just be acting in self-defense. The Kradin from "Nemesis" are a race of monstrous warriors who engage in genocide and various other brutalities. It all turns out to be a lie perpetuated by their more human-looking enemies, who were brainwashing third parties to use as shock troops.
Always Save the Girl: Janeway often takes great risks to save Seven of Nine. The Sky Spirits traveled to Earth long ago and met Chakotay's distant ancestorsgiving them a desire for exploration that aided in their spreading across the world. And I Must Scream: In the early episodes, the Doctor couldn't shut off his own program. This annoyed him when people would just leave the room without deactivating him.
In one instance, he specifically requests that, should the crew choose to abandon the ship for any reason, they take the time to shut him off before they leave.
If they didn't, he'd be stuck in Sickbay until power failed, completely alone. In "The Thaw", Kim gets locked into an computer simulation that resembles a Circus of Fearcontrolled by a Monster Clown who happens to be the personification of fear. The Clown has absolute control over the simulationincluding the ability to read the minds of all present, and spends all his time tormenting and ridiculing any people unfortunate enough to be trapped with him. When Kim arrives, he finds three aliens who have been there for nineteen years.
In "Coda", it's implied that this would have been Janeway's fate if she'd trusted the alien posing as her father and allowed him to lead her to "the afterlife" — actually a hellish Eldritch Location where the Energy Being intended to feed on her soul.
In the final season, the Doctor encounters other sentient holograms like himself who have been used for Hunting the Most Dangerous Game. There's no end to their torment because each time they are 'killed', they're just brought back and killed again, and again Paris has this forced upon him in "Ex Post Facto", where he is forced to relieve the final moments of a man he was convicted of murdering.
Likewise the Doctor in "Flesh and Blood" is put in a Hunting the Most Dangerous Game holographic simulation by other holograms who've been used for this purpose. Answers to the Name of God: Eventually, he figures he doesn't want to associate his people with anything dirty and "organic" — but his subroutines still demand a deity and so he appoints himself. Kes's mind is taken over by the warlord in question. The Nemesis are a monstrous species of aliens engaged in a war of extermination against the humanoid natives.
Subverted, as it's revealed to be a simulation run by the natives to brainwash new recruits, and the "warlike aliens" were the ones who helped rescue a kidnapped Chakotay.
They also refer to the humanoids as their Nemesis. John Kelly's final logs from the Ares IV mission. He's trapped in a graviton ellipse and he continues to record log entries and collect data right up to the point where all the power on his spacecraft fails and he dies.
Chakotay admires him for this. The man's life is about to end, but he won't stop taking readings. Unlike most examples, it's not world-shaking but does make someone realize something. In an episode where the crew is unwillingly and unknowingly experimented on by an alien species, Janeway's aggression and irrationality is increased significantly.
At one point she tells Tuvok to harshly punish several crew members for very minor things. Tuvok asks "Should I have them flogged as well? Note Tuvok knew that would snap her back to reality. Seven gets through to her with the following. You say that I am a human being and yet I am also Borg. Part of me not unlike your replicator. Not unlike the Doctor. Will you one day choose to abandon me as well?
Neelix was originally supposed to be Voyager's guide through the Delta Quadrant as well as Kes's love interest. 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 and 4, as Voyager had moved on from the area of space he was familiar with, making him useless as a guide, and Kes's full powers emerged, forcing her to leave the ship. The show tried to keep him relevant by making him the ship's ambassador and "morale officer" but while this gave him a little Character Developmentit did little to give Neelix an important role in the series. Seven of Nine was born as Annika Hansen.
Her de-assimilation from the Borg Collective happens in her debut double- episodeand even though she starts to accept her fate of being an individual again as time goes by, she almost always gets called by her old Borg designation for the rest of the series. In the episode "Macrocosm" we have viruses! It turns out that they somehow could do it by taking an alien growth hormone. The Ocampans Kes' race In Voyager, can only reproduce once, and have one child.
No species could evolve such a trait and thrive. EVERY member of the race would to reproduce to have 0 population growth. If any member of the race dies, then the race as a whole has taken a blow it cannot recover from. They also have a life span of nine years which would only exacerbate their rapid depopulation. Frankly, it's a miracle Voyager managed to make it home to the Alpha Quadrant with anyone still alive. A major violation is their use of "bio-neural gel packs," which are essentially organic components.
They were supposedly superior than standard computer circuits but actually left the ship open to more threats, such as the infamous moment when Neelix nearly destroyed the ship while trying to curdle cheese. In addition, apparently the manual overrides for the doors don't work without power, which is the whole point of having a manual override.
The writers decided to go the Magical Native American route with Chakotay and deliberately left his heritage as "unspecified, related to a Central American nation" due to the complex politics surrounding Native portrayals. Apparently, picking one nation, and consulting its members on what a respectful and accurate portrayal of their culture would look like, would have been too hard.
They were actually Dan Browned by a consultant. They recruited someone named Jamake Highwater who claimed to be an expert on Native American culture. However, it turned out he was a con artist whose only knowledge of Native American culture came from movies. The producers didn't find this out until much later, sadly.
At the time, they thought they were getting a reasonably authentic Native American character as authentic as one could be in the 24th century, in-universe there was a bit of a revival of old traditions among Native American descendants. I cross referenced holding patterns and flight plan changes for the time period in question and I've got it narrowed down to seven ships, three very possibles.
The shuttle Chicago was in a holding pattern over Seattle waiting on a contingent of Federation exobiologists and had logged a flight plan to the Vulcan home world. The flight plan was changed at the last minute to DS4 in response to an outbreak of Bolian Pox in the area. Everything was documented and checked out. Originally slated to return there, the flight plan was changed to the pleasure planet of Risa when the industrialist beamed back aboard in the company of five ladies of Betazoid and Deltan heritage.
Again, their logs and flight plans seemed to check out. The deep space trading vessel Moloki was logged as holding over Los Angeles awaiting final cargo loading. Their flight plan was logged to DS9, heading for the Bajor system, but requested a last-minute change to pick up additional cargo on Mars before leaving the Terran core system. No bills of lading were available for the last-minute cargo pickup, but the brief stop-over on Mars had been confirmed.
After leaving the Terran core system the trader had dropped off the sensor grid and its whereabouts were currently unknown. He slapped his comm badge "Paris to Tuvok. We've got three likely candidates. I'm sending the data we've got to you at Headquarters. Do you have propulsion specs on the crafts as well?
The Captain and Lieutenant Torres should arrive back here momentarily. I will bring them up to date on your findings. When Janeway and Torres arrived at Starfleet Security, they settled in with the records Tom and Harry had uncovered and began to develop the histories of all three vessels.
While there was extensive documentation on both the shuttle Chicago and the private yacht Peer's Folly it didn't take long for them to discover holes in the logs of the deep space trader Moloki.
While the ship's registry listed the vessel as launched over fifteen years ago, no records of ownership or maintenance logs could be found for earlier than the previous two years. Additionally, there were also discrepancies in the physical configuration specs of the ship.
In fact, the vessel had a marked resemblence to a vessel listed as 'LOST in the Gamma Quadrant' three years previously. Tuvok immediately set the Security staff to investigating every detail of the freighter, while he, Janeway and Torres began to discuss likely scenarios.
The key factor in this scenario is that they need a secure facility that either has been, or could be, equipped as a medical center, as well as medical personnel to staff it. That means one of two things, either an abandoned Starfleet medical facility or a black market facility. I do not believe that Section 31 would trust a criminal element for something they deemed this critical to Federation security, so I would begin searching for abandoned or decommissioned Starfleet facilities.
Starfleet Medical is the logical place to start. Do you know anyone stationed there, Captain? We're going to Atlanta. Might I suggest that you take…precautions?
Section 31 has very likely infiltrated many areas of Starfleet," said Tuvok. Janeway nodded and on the way to the transport center grabbed two small type-1 phasers from a weapons locker. When they were shown into her office the statuesque older woman rose to greet Janeway. I was delighted to hear you'd made it back to us in one piece.
What can I do for you? Was there some medical problem we weren't aware of when you berthed at McKinley? I want to know where that examination is taking place and on whose authority it was requested.
Your EMH transmitted complete medical records for all of Voyager's crew shortly before you docked. Kathryn, I think you're mistaken…" As she swung back around to face Janeway, she came face to face with two phasers aimed directly at her.
Did you or did you not authorize the arrest and physical examination of Seven of Nine? Oh my god…your Borg! That's who was taken? We don't send Security to bring people in for physical exams!
I've known your family since before you were born. You've known me your whole life. I taught you at the Academy. Am I the kind of physician — the kind of person - who would be party to something like this? It may be important. I didn't think about it much, and no one was hurt. And I was busy trying to sort out the coins. I'm not used to handling currency. What was I thinking? I was thinking how I can make a delicious pie with those water plums.
Are you sure that's all, Mister Neelix? What else would I be thinking about? Images of Tilla tugging his whispers. Must be similar to oo-mox for Ferengi, I suppose. I suppose I was a little annoyed. Can you be more specific? I guess I was thinking, my foot hurt.
I mean, the idiot stepped right on it. Did you call him an idiot? But you thought it? Did you also think about retaliating? It was an accident. But you said he hurt you.
It didn't occur to you to hurt him back? I'd never do that. But you thought about it. How am I supposed to remember? Did you think about hurting him?
Well, maybe for a split second. Image of Torres hitting Frane for treading on her foot. I mean, he should have been watching where he was going. But I realised that he didn't do it on purpose, so I shook it off and I left. What does it matter what I was thinking? Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres, you are under arrest.
Aggravated violent thought resulting in grave bodily harm. Are you saying it's a crime to think about violence? I assure you, it's quite necessary. We were once a society plagued by violence.
When we prohibited hostile thought, crime began to drop immediately. Over the past three generations, it's all but disappeared.
So you believe that it's all right to tell people what they can and cannot think? It's an irrefutable fact that violent thoughts from others can lead to violent actions.
Even if B'Elanna had a violent thought, it was Frane who attacked that man. Which he only did because he telepathically received that thought from B'Elanna. His mind was contaminated by the image and it resulted in a loss of control.Janeway and Tuvok BFF
He may have committed the physical act, but it was instigated by you. Where we come from, people are responsible for their own actions. And here, people are responsible for their own thoughts. I'm sure you can understand how that's necessary for a race of telepaths.
I'll accept that your people can be influenced by the thoughts of others, but there were dozens of people in that square. How can you be certain it came from B'Elanna? The Mari no longer have violent thoughts.
It's unlikely any of them could have been responsible.
Besides, the evidence against B'Elanna is clear. She thought about committing a hostile act. I'd like to review that evidence myself, if you don't mind. But I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. What happens to B'Elanna now?
We have an enlightened penal system here. Unlike some, we don't lock people away to punish them. Once you've undergone the engrammatic purge. It's a medical procedure that will identify and remove the offending images from your mind. Once identified, the images can be removed from Frane's mind as well. That's a dangerous procedure. There is a risk of neurological damage, but it's necessary for us to treat Frane. Will you at least delay the procedure until I've had the time to review the evidence?
It'll take us about a day to reconfigure our instruments. That's all the time I can give you. That's all the time I'll need. Torres is escorted away. Janeway beams up, reading a PADD. Captain, we've got to get B'Elanna out of there. You know the rules, Tom. We can't pick and choose which laws we'll respect and which we won't. Nobody can be expected to control their thoughts.

Tell that to the Mari. Are you just going to let them put her through this process? I'm doing everything I can to stop it. Neelix is going to file a diplomatic protest, and Tuvok and I will be going over the witness statements.
Maybe we can poke a few holes in the Chief Examiner's case. And if you can't? Then let's hope the Doctor can figure out how to reverse an engrammatic purge. All away personnel have been told to return to the ship as soon as possible. So much for R and R. Chakotay, we've got to talk. I'm sure the captain wouldn't object.
What's on your mind? While Tuvok and the captain are reviewing the evidence, B'Elanna's sitting in a Mari jail cell waiting for some sort of lobotomy. We can't let that happen.
What did you have in mind? And risk an all-out confrontation with the Mari? They're a bunch of pacifists. They're no match for us. But before we start resorting to extreme measures, don't you think we should give the captain a chance to find a legal solution? By the time that happens, it may be too late. I'll tell you what. Why don't you come up with a rescue plan, one that minimises the possibility of violence, and I'll review it.
You're just trying to keep me busy, aren't you? Can you blame me? I'm serious about this, Chakotay. If your plan is sound and the captain doesn't have any luck on her end, I'll recommend we attempt the rescue. I'll get right on it. I may have let you sit in the captain's chair, but remember, she's still the boss. Then you don't accept the Chief Examiner's conclusion? I'm not dismissing it. But I'm not going to accept it blindly either. I have spent a great deal of time with Nimira over the last few days.
She clearly is a very skilled investigator. I'm sure she is.
