Most Used Words or Phrases
 
I'm trying to come up with a drinking game to help encourage me to finish watching Voyager. Just kidding. :) Actually, I just cringe whenever I hear Janeway say "suffice it to say," because she says it A LOT. And then I was watching one of the Future's End episodes and both her and Neelix use that phrase within the same episode!

Another word/phrase is "Tachyon ____." If the writers need a techno problem or solution, a Tachyon something is usually at the top of their bag-o-babble.

Any other words or phrases that are used a lot in Voyager that you've noticed?

Have a drink when two or more of these words are combined and you will be wasted by the end of act 2.

One time, I was alone and bored and watching TNG and decided to do a drinking game someone had posted online. Let's just say...I got pretty hammered. They repeat certain phrases and words SO MUCH. I ended up eventually getting too drunk to accurately determine what they were actually saying after a while...

Star Trek drinking games are guaranteed to produce intoxication if you don't cheat. :p

"Modify" and "Main Deflector".After returning to Earth someone on VOY should've published a technical guide called "1000 and 1 different uses for the Main Deflector".

Any episode season 4 or after... irrelevant, futile, perfection, nanoprobe, etc. Guaranteed to be hammered. Passed out on a Seven centered episode.

You could also drink whenever Seven OR Janeway make you swoon. Be wasted by the end of the opening credits. :D

"Some kind of...", usually from Mr Kim.

"Warp drive is OFF-line."

With that exact emphasis by Paris.

Also, Kim's "Too late, they're gone" whenever he didn't act on his own initiative to stop someone beaming off the ship or stealing a shuttle.
