As for names and ranks, what's with everybody except Janeway being on first-name basis in Voyager? Janeway calls everybody by their first name, no matter if they're on duty or not. And Harry Kim, addressing Tuvok as just "Tuvok" without either "Mister" or his rank...?
I suppose one could argue that the uniqueness of their situation -- not merely being on an assignment together but being together as an extended family for a potentially 70 year journey -- would naturally breed less formality and more familiarity than would be the norm, even though they had agreed to generally retain Starfleet standards of operation.
