Tallaxians use "geothermal energy" from an asteroid's core. Geothermal energy is the result of the gravitational collapse and radioactive decay inside the Earth. Asteroids are much too small to generate any practical amounts of geothermal energy. In any case, using the word "geothermal" for anything other than Earth is a misnomer, since "geo" means "Earth".

Neelix leaves and Tuvok is going to be crying his eyes out....inside.
8 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the final episode for Neelix. As the series was winding down, the decision was made by some writers to ditch this guy in the Delta Quadrant. My wife cried. I was a bit less overwhelmed by his loss.

When the show begins, Voyager encounters a hidden group of 500 Talaxian refugees hiding out under the surface of some planet. Considering how few of them are left, it's perhaps the last chance for these people to avoid extinction. However, some race of bullies wants the planet and considering how weak and few the Talaxians are, things look really bad. That is, until Neelix comes to the rescue. Their plight is now his plight and he's not about to knuckle under to these jerk-faces. So he decides to help them and eventually stays with them and Voyager continues on to the Alpha Quadrant.

This is a pretty good show--full of heart and one that fans of the series probably will find a tad upsetting.
