Storyline

Returning from an away mission the Delta Flyer is boarded and Tuvok is assaulted by a cloaked alien from a xenophobic race called the Ba'Neth. Neurological damage leaves the once-disciplined, logical Vulcan with the mentality of a lost and scared child. With Neelix's help, Tuvok discovers new hobbies and embraces the concept of 'fun.' Naroq, a Kesat studying the Ba'Neth helps Voyager find the aliens in hopes of answers about their technology and the weapon used on Tuvok. When presented with an operation that will restore him to his old self, Tuvok hesitates, knowing he will lose his lust for life and appreciation for his friendship with Neelix. Written by Meribor

Goofs

When the Voyager crew discovers the home-base of the Ba'Neth ships, both Harry and Chakotay refer to a "nine million terawatt" cloaking grid. A terawatt is equal to one trillion watts, thus nine million terawatts would equal nine quintillion (9,000,000,000,000,000,000) watts, which is more properly referred to as nine exawatts. See more »

Quotes

[Tuvok is going through his personnel file]
Tuvok: I was an instructor at Starfleet Academy; I've received 17 commendations for valor; I'm a husband... a father...
Neelix: You're an extraordinary fellow, Tuvok.
Tuvok: I *was* an extraordinary fellow.

Regarding Tuvok.
1 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best shows that you could ever see from "Star Trek: Voyager"--one that you shouldn't miss. In many ways, it reminds me of the movie "Regarding Henry" and offers some truly touching moments.

On a shuttle mission, Mr. Tuvok is attacked by a cloaked alien. The attack is so serious that Tuvok's memory is gone and he has no idea who he is. Additionally, his Vulcan persona is gone! Scared, he reaches out to the crew member who sticks with him through all this, Neelix. Soon the pair become inseparable and you see a very, very different sort of Tuvok. He smiles, he's happy and he's having fun with his new best friend. And, because he's not the ultra-logical guy, he and Neelix create a special bond. However, if Tuvok is restored, what will become of his affection for Neelix?

This is an incredibly satisfying episode. It also helps you to see that although Tuvok always seems exasperated with Neelix and wants to avoid him, perhaps there has always been some genuine affection lying deep under the surface. Exceptional and well worth your time.
