Neelix reigns over his domain as cook on ''Voyager'' with an absolutely tyrannical grip (Chuck calls it "Coffee Martial Law").  He refuses to provide food when it doesn't suit him to do so, with no justification other than a bemused shrug.<ref>[[VOY]] "Prototype"</ref>  As seen above, he has an absolute fit when food supplies are used in any way other then his "approved" usage of them.<ref>[[VOY]] "State of Flux"</ref>  His complete control of the diet of his clientele even reaches the level of telling ''Captain Janeway'' herself (Full of yourself much?) that she can't use one of her own [[replicator]] [[Currency|rations]] to have some coffee instead of his substitute (I've never seen anything look as nasty as that stuff!), because it would look bad to the rest of the crew for her to do so. Keep in mind that this is only the sixth episode(counting both parts of the pilot) meaning he has barely even been on the ship at this point (and one episode since he formally opened his mess hall). <ref>[[VOY]] "The Cloud"</ref> In a multitude of instances, he more-or-less demands that no one can use anything food-related without his permission, including the use of replicator rations, which are supposed to be free to use for whatever the crewman wants and can even be saved up. The rations are basically money, so what right does he have to tell anyone how they use them?  This demand leads to the situation where instead of replicating normal cheese (which would have been good enough) in order to satisfy a crewwoman's craving for Macaroni(<--which he must have replicated though pasta does store well) and Cheese he instead made his own cheese to use instead.<ref>[[VOY]] "Learning Curve"</ref>

His insecurity even goes to the point that when any food is seen in his kitchen that he didn't produce, he goes into an absolute tirade over it.  The things he pontificates about are very telling, indicating a concern that Janeway could possibly be considering replacing him with someone else.  Of course, the only satisfying part of this behavior is that it does result in a [[Q|powerful being]] removing his mouth.<ref>[[VOY]] "Death Wish", "Q2"</ref>
