Did You Know?


When auditioning women for the role of Lisa Cusack, the producers never saw any of the people who auditioned. They just listened to audio recordings instead. Debra Wilson was chosen based on the sound of her voice alone. Director Winrich Kolbe didn't allow Wilson to meet the cast until after filming was finished. See more »


When Quark muses about how humans in the past were romantic, he pronounces "human" in the normal method, instead of "hew-mon" as Ferengi traditionally do. See more »


Lisa's Voice: How did they let you out of medical school with this kind of bedside manner? Are you sure you're a doctor?
Doctor Bashir: I graduated, second in my class in fact.
Lisa's Voice: Ooh! And we're especially proud of that, aren't we?
Doctor Bashir: I get the feeling that it's gonna take me some hours to crawl out of this rather sizable hole I've dug for myself.
Lisa's Voice: Not at all. It'll take you days!

Being #500 is a big responsibility.
25 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Sound of Her Voice" is the 500th episode in the "Star Trek" franchise. So, after tons of "Star Trek", "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" and "Star Trek: Voyager" they've finally hit this huge milestone. Unfortunately, while a very good episode, it wasn't as resounding a success as the show a few seasons back created to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the series ("Trials and Tribble-ations", 5.6).

The show's main plot involves a long distance distress call. A ship's captain, Lisa Cusak, has begun sending distress calls to anyone who might respond. It seems that something odd about the atmosphere of some planet caused her ship to crash and the Defiant is many days away from rescuing her. There is a problem, however, because the crash site is a class L planet--with a thin atmosphere that necessitate Cusak using all her available oxygen...and then perhaps some. So, it's a race to the planet and the crew of the Defiant take time to talk with Cusak and keep her spirits high.

The other plot is ill-defined. For some reason that makes zero sense, Jake and Quark are working together on some smuggling. This plot DID end well, but otherwise is far inferior to the Cusak one in every way.

So is it any good? Yup. But for a 500th episode I guess I just expected more. Still, it is worth seeing.
