Janeway makes friends with the Talaxians, Ocampa, and Sikarians. She makes enemies of the Kazon and Vidiians who want federation technology and body parts. She is challenged by lifeforms, quantum singularities, and time travel and wormhole problems.
Janeway has faced difficult decisions when Nelix and Tuvok are merged in Tuvik; when she and Chokotay get a deadly virus and are force to leave Voyager in Resolution; when she falls into Ceska's trap and loses Voyager in Basics I/II; when she runs into a duplicate Voyager in Deadlock; when she grant asylum to a Q contemplating suicide in Deathwish; and when she is chosen by Q to be the mother of his child to stop a Q continuum civil war in The Q and The Grey.

In Scorpion Part I, she makes a deal with the Borg by trading a nanite weapon against Species 8472 for safe passage for Voyager through Borg space. In Scorpion Part II, she cuts the link between the local female Borg liasion and the collective and begin to help Seven of Nine rediscover her humanity and become part of the Voyager crew. In The Year From Hell I/II, she battles an alien race that uses time to erase entire species. In Hunters and in The Killing Game I/II, she battle the Hirogens who treat her crew as prey. In Vis-a-vi, her identity is stolen by an alien. In The Omega Directive, Janeway is ordered to destroy a dangerous molecule that can destroy space.
