Did You Know?
Tuvok's violent thoughts include scenes from Star Trek Generations (the scene of Veridian III exploding and of the Nexus in that planet's upper atmosphere), Star Trek: First Contact (a view of a Borg pursuing USS Enterprise-E crew members), footage of the Kradin from VOY: "Nemesis" and the mother creature from "Parturition", though not in footage that was used in those particular episodes. Also utilized is the 1997 film Event Horizon, a Paramount Pictures production that was released to theaters on August 17th, only three months before this episode aired. See more
When Tuvak shows Nimira the brig, she comments on how barbaric it is. He even has to explain to her that they use it to hold individuals until they can be handed over to the proper authorities. Yet when Torres commits a crime, they arrest her and detain her until her sentence can be carried out. See more
Investigating this case has given me a new respect for your inner struggle.
Burdened as you are by your primitive Klingon psyche, it is a wonder you're able to keep your violent thoughts under control as much as you do.
Thanks - I think.
