"The question is..."
 
Has anyone noticed the phrase "The question is..." is in practically every episode?

Whenever they needed a character to reframe the central conflict of the story, they would have someone (usually Janeway) say "the question is..." followed by what the central conflict was.

My wife and I are watching every episode starting from the pilot and we've noticed this all the way up through season 4.

I'll be on the lookout for that now.

It's the "Ironic, isn't it?" of Voyager! (That's DS9's go-to phrase.)

I looked at the transcripts, and it looks like it might be the fault of someone who came on board (the show, not the ship) part way in...season 1 never uses it, but season 2 and 3 use it quite a bit.

The question is........who came up with this comment in each and every script? ;)

It's a secret drinking game for the producers.

Did you notice the signature Chakotay pipe music too whenever there was a tribal scene?

I didn't even think about the pipe music after being weaned on Spock's Vulcan angst music for so many years.

Jeri Ryan has the most full lips I've ever seen.

The question is...oh look, a koala!...

I shall have to look out for that phrase now. Might be a fun drinking game.

I don't ever recall hearing that phrase. What line was it in for the pilot episode, for example?

^It isn't. It doesn't show up 'til season 2.
