: I recently watched all of Voyager, BrickVoid (I'm a glutton for punishment, lol). I don't recall that happening. I do recall them collecting technobabble of the week, though. @oldarmourer They also transported antimatter in TOS, when they built a bomb to kill the vampire cloud monster. I still question that torpedoes use antimatter... that
was not discussed in show, and it seems like a very bad idea. Any power failure on a single torpedo or any damage to torpedo storage would destroy the entire ship.

: https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Warp_core According to the memory-alpha fandom wiki, deuterium was a vital resource to support auxiliary reactors, so I don't understand why most starships wouldn't be carrying additional supplies of it. If necessary, warp cores from shuttles or other starships docked on board could be
