Storyline

Neelix experiences a crisis of faith when, after being dead for nearly nineteen hours, Seven of Nine revives him using her Borg technology. On awakening, Neelix has no memory of experiencing the Talaxian afterlife and begins to doubt everything his culture believes about the post-thanatic experience and their spiritual place in the universe. His crisis is played out with the help of Chakotay's vision quest. Written by runar-4

Trivia

In the scene where Neelix goes to talk to Seven in Astrometrics (near the end of the episode), one of the screens displays the well-known and oft-reprinted image of the Eagle Nebula, taken by the Hubble telescope. See more »

Goofs

The Doctor says that the length of time Neelix was dead before coming back to life is a "new world record." This is an outdated term as the federation is made up of a number of worlds, not just Earth. See more »

Quotes

Tuvok: [reading a salutation] "We do not stand alone. We are in the arms of family: father, mother, sister, brother. Father's father, father's mother. Father's brother, mother's brother. Fa..." - Suffice to say, the list is extensive. "We gather on this day to extol the warmth and joy of those unshakable bonds. Without them, we could not call ourselves complete. On this day, we are thankful to be together. We do not stand alone."

Neelix is dead....hooray!
21 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

On a mission in a runabout, Neelix is killed...but apparently not seriously. When he is brought back to Voyager and they're talking about funeral arrangements, Seven of Nine tells everyone she CAN bring him back from the dead since it's only been 18 hours since he assumed room temperature. She is successful and everyone is happy. Neelix, after a while, isn't. After all, during the time he was dead he never experienced what he thought Talaxian heaven should be. He remembers nothing...and this creates a big crisis of faith. Later, with the help of Chakotay, he goes on a 'vision quest' and learns nothing to make him feel better. For Neelix, life sucks and he feels no reason to go on- -so he begins saying his goodbyes but the crew is apparently too dim to realize that he's about to off himself. Can he be saved from himself?

The idea of a crisis of faith is excellent for the show. But why does every single problem get met with Chakotay and his pseudo- American Indian mumbo-jumbo?! The ship could really use a minister, rabbi, witch doctor, priest, guru, imam or whatever and it does seem odd that on the Trek shows there isn't someone to go to for spiritual advice other than the second in command!

So is all this any good? It all depends. I wanted Neelix to stay dead, but that's just my bias against Neelix since I find him a bit annoying. Others, however, might like this one more than I did.
