The trivia item below may give away important plot points.
This episode parallels the movie Die Hard. The hostile alien force attempting to take control of Voyager and holding the crew hostage is much like the terrorist group that invades Nakatomi Plaza in Die Hard. Chakotay eventually becomes the last man aboard ship, attempting to evade and thwart the enemy much in the way John McClane does in Die Hard. The last crew member to disappear and leave Chakotay to fend for himself is Gennaro. John McClane's wife in Die Hard goes by her maiden name of Gennaro.
