Then we’ve poor Harry, who’s been an Ensign for seven years with nowhere to go however up– sometime.

The idea is that Janeway really did not like Harry and refused to advertise him all alongside. The factor is, Starfleet additionally points promotions, so did they’ve it out for him as nicely?

23 The Warship Voyager Is Actual (And From The Mirror Universe)

Not solely do followers postulate that the Warship Voyager was truly actual, however that it comes from the Mirror Universe. This is able to give the Terran Empire a shot at existence and provides the idea some help, nevertheless it will get even wilder. What if all the episode happened within the Mirror Universe to start with?

We have all loved some MU enjoyable ever because the days of Kirk and Spoc. This would not change so much when it comes to the plot of the episode itself, however it will create additional prospects to think about if the ship have been certainly actual.

22 The Holodeck Is An Emergency Generator

Empty Holodeck from Star Trek The Next Generation

It is by no means been explicitly used as a generator, however followers say that it might make good sense provided that the holodeck is powered by a totally separate energy grid from the remainder of the ship. The holodeck has generated bursts of power in episodes earlier than, so it will make good sense that, if harnessed correctly, the power from the holodeck might be used as an emergency generator to energy different issues.

It is unlikely that there can be sufficient power to energy the remainder of the ship, a minimum of for lengthy, however it’s an fascinating principle to pursue.

21 Worry’s First Sufferer Was An Accident

The fan concept appears as if it have been dreamed as much as merely clarify why B’Elanna may off an animal information when in actuality, we might see her doing it for much less.

19 Voyager’s Deuterium Scarcity Was A Cowl-Up For One thing Else

The title ship from Star Trek: Voyager

Why would Voyager ever run out of deuterium? As an isotope of hydrogen, it is plentiful all through the universe and it is laughable to assume it will be in such excessive demand. Some followers assume that “deuterium” was only a code phrase for one thing far more secretly coveted that the ship was both after or frequently wanted. Maybe the substance was too valuable to discuss, particularly if giant ears have been listening, in order that they used “deuterium” as an alternative.

It isn’t an unattainable concept, though there actually is not a lot concrete proof to help it.

18 The Misplaced Daughter Of Legate Ghemor Is Seska

Seska from Star Trek Voyager

Legate Ghemor’s daughter Ileana was misplaced in Deep Area 9, so what might Seska of Voyager should do with that?

The thought is that she was capable of awaken as soon as she was inside the confines of the Delta Quadrant as a result of her Obsidian Order deep-cover programming.

There are some minor particulars that would lend help to the idea, corresponding to “Seska” not working as a Cardassian identify for the spy and Ileana by no means being recovered among the many Bajorans.

17 The Physician By no means Deliberate To Off Seven Of 9

The Doctor and Seven of Nine in Voyager

The thought of The Physician being so fast to off Seven Of 9 when his ethics have been eliminated has troubled many a viewer. Some followers speculate that he was working towards Captain Ransom the complete time, utilizing a projection of Seven of 9 to attempt to cease your complete process.

There’s additionally a concept that The Physician gave Seven of 9 implants since she clearly was extra well-endowed when he gave her longer hair and a catsuit. It is sensible for him to be liable for another changes as nicely.

16 Neelix Is A Predator

Neelix Star Trek Voyager

Hooking up with somebody who seems to be like a lady, however was technically solely two years previous when the present started appears moderately bizarre. Followers have compiled much more proof to help their concept that Neelix is one creepy character. He is not even remotely focused on Seven of 9, whom everybody else fawns over, however he does appear to want the these a lot youthful than him.

It is principally circumstantial, provided that Kes solely has 9 years to reside to start with, however it’s a believable concept that truthfully could possibly be utilized to many characters.

15 Tom Paris’s Double Offed Himself

Tom Paris clean shaven

Why does Tom Paris’s double simply vanish with no hint? The apparent conclusion can be that decay had began to set in and he perished consequently, however some followers speculate that the reality is even bleaker. Since we final noticed this model of Tom expressing bitterness over his state of affairs in a reasonably depressed tone, these followers assume that the duplicate Tom simply determined to off himself and finish it shortly relatively than wait to rot.

A far much less probably concept? That Tom is the reincarnation of Captain Kirk!

She even blames Janeway for “filling her head with ideas of exploration,” very similar to a petulant youngster.

Followers simply aren’t shopping for this. Some assume that the rationale Kes went insane was due to some darkish information she gained on her travels, resembling studying that the Borg had assimilated her world or coming to phrases together with her personal mortality.

13 Friendship One Was Meant To Insult The Vulcans

When the unmanned Friendship One was despatched out to make contact with the Vulcans, it was greater than bizarre, given how first contact had already been made years prior. Why would one other probe be despatched out to re-establish this contact? Might you think about if each area probe had some sort of foll0w-up go to every 4 years?

Followers who discover this unusual say that the Friendship One wasn’t an precise probe in any respect. As an alternative, it was meant to insult the Vulcans, who refused to share their tech with the people.

12 The Physician Has No Backup Information On Function

It might appear an egregious error for there to be no backup information of The Physician, and followers have hotly contested the rationale why for a very long time. Some speculate that there have been no backup information deliberately as a result of The Physician is himself the backup, which makes good sense.

The EMH was created for emergency use to start with, which suggests that he’s the backup information. You do not sometimes make a backup of your backup– until you are tremendous sort A or you have got method an excessive amount of time in your arms. It is a prolonged course of and we will not blame anybody for not doing it twice.

11 Janeway Marries Mark

Is not there a rule in sci-fi the place you marry the one that saved your life? Mark Johnson was imagined to do exactly that together with his love Captain Janeway, however he married another person as soon as the Voyager was misplaced and everybody assumed the crew was gone eternally.

9 Quantum Leap Was Half Of Starfleet

Quantum Leap Scott Bakula

Keep in mind the time-jumping program Quantum Leap?

There are a couple of one-time characters that Sam meets who might function Braxton’s presence as he observes Sam’s progress and works to right the failed venture.

There’s actually not loads of proof right here, however it might nonetheless occur, and it might unify two very cool sci-fi universes.

eight Ocampans Use Thoughts Manipulation

Neelix and Kes from Voyager

There is a principle that a telepathic hyperlink that Ocampans make the most of with their mates might not solely create a deeper bond, however truly management or manipulate the species’ mates to the purpose of even altering their wishes and personalities. Whereas Neelix was a possessive and jealous mate to Kes, as quickly as she left his demeanor pleasantly shifted and he turned a extra likable character.

Nonetheless others consider this can be defined away with pheromones. Kes says that Ocampan marriages haven’t any jealousy or mistrust, which could possibly be as a consequence of their very own powers of pheromone manipulation.

7 The Kuvah’magh Will Discover The Sword Of Kahless

It isn’t related to the present all that a lot, however Tom and B’elanna’s baby might be the star of a totally new story by which the Klingons usually are not solely unified however maybe even advanced into one thing new. It will make sense that even a warlike race would ultimately adapt and develop into peaceable within the present, notably since evolving right into a extra peaceable, productive species that does not even use cash (usually, anyway) is a chief focus of Star Trek.

No one likes the “It was all a dream after all!” trope, which is simply lazy storytelling, but when it is true, it might clarify rather a lot.

Why is there one other Physician? What about Kes’s warnings about “Before and After”? There are many tiny items of proof that would give credence to this concept, and should you look them up you can fall right into a wormhole your self, questioning what’s actual and what was simply an phantasm.

Would not it’s utterly becoming for the Borg Queen to be Seven of 9’s mom?

The Caretaker in Voyager

What if the Caretaker is even implementing the one youngster per feminine coverage, controlling their inhabitants in a effort to make sure they can not ever get well their numbers? His motive is perhaps his personal freedom from the duty, and his companion might have fled as a way to protect the species elsewhere.

three Chakotay’s Is Seven’s Beard To Disguise Her Love For Janeway

Seven of 9 by no means actually appeared to have chemistry with Chakotay, however she did appear to hit it off with Janeway. The non-canonical pairing is a favourite fan romance. Many followers speculate that the one cause why Seven is even with Chakotay is to cowl up her deep love for Janeway.

Had the collection been produced immediately, making Seven and Janeway an merchandise would not have been an enormous deal in any respect, however on the time there wasn’t almost as a lot LGBT illustration on tv. Even Jeri Ryan has expressed emotions about how her romance with Chakotay was a complete failure. Might he have really been Seven’s beard?

2 Seven Of 9 Turned A Borg Queen

Everyone knows that Seven of 9 created a hive thoughts, even when it was momentary. Doing that and linking it to different minds is actually the one requirement to grow to be a Borg queen, proper? On this case, what if Seven Of 9 turned a queen in consequence?
