Trivia

When Captain Janeway tells the two holonovel children that she hopes to be a friend to them as well as a governess, Henry replies in Latin, "In ullam rem ne preparamus." Loosely translated, this means "We are not prepared for either thing." See more »

Quotes

[as an allegory, Neelix shows Tuvok some of his plants, some of which have flexible stems, others rather brittle ones]
Lieutenant Tuvok: You're saying that the Maquis crew is rigid and inflexible, that they will never adjust to Starfleet rules?
Neelix: No, Mr. Vulcan. I'm saying that *you* are rigid and inflexible. But maybe if you'd learn to bend a little, you might have better luck with your class.

Certainly watchable but pretty ordinary
24 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It becomes apparent to Tuvok that the Maquis are not fully (and understandably to me if not Tuvok) integrated into the crew. Janeway's solution is to have Tuvok train four Maquis selected by Chakotay in the ways of Star Fleet. The Maquis selected are very unhappy about this and refuse to participate until Chakotay brings them round with a demonstration of "the Maquis way." While the boot camp like training is going on, Voyager is being threatened by catastrophe as the bioneural gel packs that operate all of the ship's systems (including life-support) are breaking down. Since the Tuvok character is one of my least favorites, it is not surprising that I found this show basically ordinary despite the fact that the especially bitter Maquis Crewman Dalby was both believable and interesting. The two best bits in the show were when the Doctor talks to the gel pack and the brief interlude of Janeway in the "ancient English" halonovel. The episode does see further development of the Tuvok character.
