Voyager is a rare Science Fiction example of a subcategory of television that I refer to as the Serialized Procedural, which is a series that, on the surface, seems Episodic in nature, but actually tells serialized stories that are linked through character progression, recurring guest characters, direct callbacks to previous episodes, and story arcs that are spread out over multiple episodes or seasons.

Some other prominent examples from this subcategory are Doctor Who, ANGEL, Haven, BONES, Elementary, Lost Girl, iZombie, and CSY: NY.

There are also, as noted, elements of DS9 that fit into this subcategory as well, although they fall away as the series morphs into a more traditional Serialized Drama.
