Additional Details


Did You Know?

Trivia:
In this episode, Neelix has himself surgically altered to pose as the Grand Nagus's proxy. This would be the 2nd time that Ethan Phillips has played a Ferengi. Phillips played as the Ferengi Dr. Farak on "Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ménage à Troi (#3.24)" (1990). Phillips would also go on to play the Ferengi Ulis in "Star Trek: Enterprise: Acquisition (#1.19)" (2002).See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: At the start of "Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Price (#3.8)" (1989) it was stated that the wormhole leads to the Gamma Quadrant; Star Trek: Voyager is set in the Delta Quadrant. However, in "The Price", the wormhole did indeed exit in the Delta Quadrant when Data and La Forge explored it (along with the ill-fated Ferengi).See more »
Quotes:
[Neelix, in Ferengi-disguise, is posing as the Grand Proxy, representative of the Grand Nagus]
Neelix:The 299th Rule of Acquisition: "Whenever you exploit someone, it never hurts to thank them. That way it's easier to exploit them the next time."
Kol:Wait a minute - there's only 285 Rules of Acquisition.
Neelix:You've been gone a very long time.

how not to get a stranded crew home., 19 April 2009
Author: rgarfiel from United States

Yes, they have to keep the show going, but this episode shows one of the great flaws in "Voyager" as a concept. Janeway should be doing everything she can to get her crew home; after all, she was the one who got them stranded in the Delta Quadrant in the first place. So, with the wormhole almost upon them, and the way home there for the taking, Janeway instead plays games with an alien planet and two miserable Ferengi, and almost literally misses the bus. Even so, once she transports the Ferengi to the ship, shouldn't they be tied up like cattle and guarded by several well-armed crewmen, who would realize that keeping the Ferengi on ice is their ticket back to Earth? Janeway's sympathy for the inhabitants of the planet must take a back-seat to her primary mission. This episode, like so many Trek shows, in all the series, could be sub-titled "liberals in space." Great morality back on Earth, no so hot when exiled 75,000 light-years from home.
