Trivia

The Hanonian land eel was the first alien being on Voyager created through CGI. They would experiment with the technique again in Star Trek: Voyager: Macrocosm (1996), before using it to create Species 8472 for Star Trek: Voyager: Scorpion: Part 1 (1997). See more »

Goofs

When the Kazon have taken over the Voyager, the Doctor asks the computer for the ship's complement. It lists eighty-nine Kazon and one Betazoid on board, but neglects to mention Seska (a Cardassian), and her infant son. See more »

Quotes

[Paxim is reluctant to attack Voyager with his Talaxian ships]
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Commander Paxim, my people are counting on you. Look, no one knows Voyager like I do. I know every vulnerability, every blind spot. Don't worry, I have a plan.
Paxim: [sighs] Very well. We'll rendezvous in an hour. Paxim out.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: [to himself] One hour. I should be able to come up with some kind of plan in one hour.

Ding-Dong, The Witch Is Dead!
2 February 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Seska is dead!!! Finally!!!

The hideously-unappealing, scenery-chewing, pointlessly-evil villain is gone from Voyager! She will be missed.

This episode is really just the killing off of the lingering, failed plot lines that had yet to be resolved. Chakotay's baby? Not his. COP-OUT! That's why they never should have begun such a ridiculous plot line in the first place.

Seska the Evil? Dead. No more contrived cliff-hanging baby-mama drama, and no more having to look at that pigskin she calls a face.

The Kazon Nistrom wars? Over. And not a moment too soon. It was clear Voyager had bitten off more than they could chew with all these plot lines. For a show about a ship heading home how many times could they keep running into the same people? While "Basics I" established a great cliffhanger, "Part II" resolves it way too quickly. Doc and Brad Dourif play Die Hard on the occupied ship while Tom sneaks back with his shuttlecraft. Not the greatest, but at least we're finally free from the ghost of plot lines past.

Die, Seska. Stay dead. Good dog.
