Three years ago, when Ensign Lyndsey Ballard died on an away mission, Voyager gave her a traditional burial in space. Her remains were recovered by the Kobali, a race that procreates by reanimating the corpses of other races and altering their DNA. When Lyndsey flees the Kobali and returns to Voyager, Janeway is skeptical but medical scans prove she is the real deal. While The Doctor can't make her human again, he alters her appearance to look like her old self and she tries to reintegrate herself with the crew. Also in this episode, Seven of Nine is frustrated to find the Borg children act more like children and less like Borg, despite her allotting 'fun' in their daily schedule. Written by

The title refers to "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust", a phrase from the Anglican burial service, used sometimes to denote total finality. See more
When the twins Rebi and Azan explain to Seven that they have made cubes out of their clay, one of them mentions that they are one-one-thousandth the size of a Borg vessel. The cubes are clearly only a few inches square. One thousand times those dimensions would be only a few hundred feet, and one thousand times the volume would only be about 50 feet square, clearly much smaller than all Borg cubes seen in all Star Trek series. A more likely description would be one-ten-thousandth the size of the Borg cube. See more
