For a family-friendly show, Star Trek Voyager proved time and time again that it wasn't afraid to stray into dark storylines. The Star Trek universe is known for using episodes to make social commentary on cultural issues, however Voyager seemed to stray into darker storylines more than most.
Being 75,000 lightyears away from home in a quadrant that had yet to be explored by the Federation was bad enough, but Voyager pushed the envelope more and more throughout it's run. It handled issues as varied as self-harm and organ stealing across its 7 seasons.
The darkness of the moments in this list are compounded by the fact that the crew was alone far from home, and they only had each other. The unknown elements of the Delta Quadrant made life tough for the intrepid crew and their captain, and as this list will show, there were some moments where we were shocked by the darkness that lay within.
These dark moments made the crew stronger, but not before almost crushing them forever. So prepare for a walk on the dark side of Voyager as some of the darkest moments in Voyager's history are brought to light.
A recently created Star Trek fan with a special affinity for the adventures of Voyager and its crew. I enjoy the occasional horror movie and love anything 80s to the point where I've been told I was an 80s child reborn. I'm a true blue Aussie and proud of it.
