    Otherwise known as WTF ? moments.
    Basically any time Voyager made you sit up and puzzle over a particular comment or scene.
    One that really stands out for me is in Blink of an eye, with the Doctor calmly proclaiming he has a son.... sorry, what ? A son ? Really ? How ?

    It was then never mentioned again.

    What happened to the arbonics (?) bay when Kes left?

    Whose idea was it for Seven of Nine's outfit? I've been rewatching select episodes, and the sheer ridiculousness of that get up throws me out of the story everytime.

    I thought it was Borgified in "Scorpion" and became Seven of Nine's hangout?

    Biggest one that comes to mind for me right now is "The Disease", where Starfleet suddenly has all these rules forbidding human-alien relations. Didn't anyone in the Voyager writing room watch the original Star Trek? Or even Next Gen??

    He said he lived with a woman down on the planet. I assume he adopted the child she was already carrying.

    Aeroponics. I thought there was a mention of someone else working in there after Kes. But I may be confusing it with something I read.

    Why were both the Doctor AND Paris sent on an away mission? re: Gravity.

    I know it was because of the whole Tuvok/Paris dynamic but still.....:shrug:

    Exactly , assumed. There was no explanation and it seemed a pretty big event just to give it a throwaway line.

    Maybe Suder mentioned wanting to work there during his incarceration?

    The choice to pass through the Devore Imperium always struck me as unnecessarily risky.

    When the Borg Queen said to Kim "I'll see you soon". Did the series even have writers by that point?

    I'm pretty sure it was mentioned a couple times well after Kes left

    But I loved that bit! The Borg Queen, the manifestation of the Borg, embodiment of trillions of Borg seeking perfection for thousands of years... fucking with little Harry Kim.

    :guffaw:

    I thought that - in universe - it was the Doctors choice? Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly...

    Wasn't it because her body was damaged by the Borg and her suit kept it in shape or something?

    It was the Doctor originally, after he remove her Borg armor Seven needed "thermal" clothing. Obviously Seven didn't have a lot of body fat. I think she retain the tight fitting clothing (in various colors) because she personally liked the look and secretly enjoyed the effect her body had on Voyager's crew.
    Kim: "I'm looking forward to it."

    In universe explanation, I think it was meant that he had to remove so many of her implants that basically she had to be corseted to hold her together. Of course they could have let her wear something else over it.

    But the real world explanation is at least one of the reasons the character was created that way was to be eye candy for the young male demographic.

    I read a fanfiction about Marika, the former Borg from Survival Instincts. She had to wear the catsuit but chose to wear regular clothes over it.
