When auditioning for the part of the holographic doctor, Robert Picardo was asked to say the line "Somebody forgot to turn off my program". He did so, then ad-libbed "I'm a doctor, not a light bulb" and got the part.

Goofs
In the first episode, "Caretaker," Capt. Janeway tells Ens. Kim to call her Captain, or Ma'am in a crunch. However, the crew calls her Sir (according to Starfleet Protocol) on various occasions.

It's stated that Voyager has a "stable cruising velocity" of warp 9.975 but numerous times throughout the series the ship is shown "top out" at approximately warp 9.5 and is unable to go faster without damaging the ship.

Throughout the series, the number of crewmen on Voyager has fluctuated despite the fact that several have died over the course of the series, and only around eight have been added. The number of the crew has been as few as 125 and as many as 160.

Q
How many of Voyager's shuttles were destroyed throughout the course of the show?
A
During the USS Voyager's return to Earth, the ships lost around 15 shuttles. It was never explained or shown to us in the show how the Voyager crew were able to constantly create new shuttles despite being a medium sized ship thousands of lightyears from Federation space. It can be assumed that the crew replicated shuttle parts and constructed a new shuttle once one had been destroyed. This is one aspect of Star Trek: Voyager which has attracted a lot of negative attention many from fans who feel it was unrealistic for crew to be able to constantly replace shuttles/construct warp drives in their situation.
Q
Why do the Nacelles of the Voyager pivot before going to warp?
A
Voyager's nacelles were created in response to the discovery made in Episode 7.09 of Star Trek: The Next Generation "Force of Nature" that warp travel was damaging subspace. While never mentioned explicitly on Star Trek: Voyager, those who have worked on the show have stated that Voyager's variable geometry warp nacelles were not damaging to subspace. Despite this, the issue brought up in "Force of Nature" was ignored in Star Trek and essentially forgotten as it was seen to have been a limiting issue not conducive to the creation of good stories, specially in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine where ships were frequently seen cruising at over the warp limit enacted in "Force of Nature". A non-canonical explanation of how existing ships were allowed to travel past the warp limit without using variable geometry nacelles may be that Starfleet engineers simply found a simpler way of making warp speed subspace-friendly without changing the nacelles drastically.Besides - it LOOKS so damn cool!
Q
Why did the Voyager crew count seem to fluctuate?
A
Throughout Voyager's seven year journey, the crew count appears to go up and down several times without any apparent reason why. In season 2 episode 1 "The 37s", it is mentioned there are 152 crew members on board. In season 3 episode 2 "Distant Origin", alien sensors pick up 147 lifesigns. In season 5 episode 4 "In the Flesh", the Doctor implies there are 127 crew members. In season 5 episode 13 "Gravity", it is said there are 152 crew members. In season 5 episode 15 "Dark Frontier", there are 143 lifesigns detected on Voyager. In season 5 episode 22 "Someone to Watch Over Me", there are 146 crew members. In season 7 episode 20 "Author, Author", there are still 146 crew members despite there being several deaths since the events of "Someone to Watch Over Me".Over the years, we saw that Voyager lost approximately 33 crew members. However this was not reflected in the crew counts we heard throughout the show, and an inshow explanation for how the crew numbers jumped up and down so much seems impossible as besides Kes, Neelix, Naomi, Seven and Icheb and the 5 Equinox crewmembers added in Season 6 Episode 1 "Equinox Part 2", there were no permanent new additions to the crew throughout the show. It is far more likely that the writers simply did not keep tabs on the number of crewmembers. This is also reflected in other ways such as the surprise sighting of a female Vulcan on board Voyager in season 7 episode 4 "Repression" which directly contradicts the events of Season 3 episode "Blood Fever" and Season 5 episode "Counterpoint". Yet in the Season 3 episode "Flashback" Tuvok does clearly mention there are indeed other Vulcan crew members aboard Voyager. Due to the nature of the shows premise being that the ship is small and far away from Federation space, such continuity errors are particularly jarring.
