Did You Know?


The song playing on the juke box in the mess hall in the opening scene is an instrumental version of Roy Orbison's "Ooby Dooby" which is played on the juke box in "First Contact" by Zefram Cochrane. The "First Contact" version had Roy Orbison singing. See more »


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".

Farewell to Neelix
31 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While Neelix is leading the celebration of 'First Contact' day, a holiday of his own invention, the crew discovers a group of Telaxians living in a nearby asteroid field. When the Delta Flyer enters the field it is damaged my mining charges and makes a forced landing on the Telaxian's asteroid. After the landing Neelix is disappointed to find that the people there are suspicious of any non-Telaxians. As he gets to know them he grows to understand their suspicions as a group of alien miners are demanding they leave the asteroid so they can mine the minerals there. Voyager tries to help negotiations between the Telaxians and the miners but the latter are determined to mine the asteroid. It looks as if all is lost but Tuvok points out to Neelix that what the Telaxians need is a leader who can help them defend their home. Neelix then departs in his shuttle and helps them set up a shield around the asteroid. Having grown close to one of the women there he decides to stay with them and be the Federation's ambassador in the Delta Quadrant.

This was a good episode which saw the first departure of a major character since Kes left at the start of season four. Over the years Ethan Phillips did a fine job as Neelix, a character who could be a little annoying at times but overall was a fun character. This episode is also the last to feature young Naomi Wildman, to my mind the best Star Trek child as Scarlett Pomers played her as a normal child. The final scene between them was quite touching.
