Directed by Roxann Dawson, one of two Voyager episodes she directed, along with "Workforce Part 2." She has been a successful director of many television shows in the following years. See more »


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.

[Neelix is desperate because he isn't able to restore Tuvok to his former self]
Seven of Nine: When I was separated from the Collective, I too was damaged. I was no longer connected to the hive mind; I lost many abilities that I had acquired as a drone. But I adapted.
Neelix: Because Captain Janeway didn't give up on you. She kept trying to help you.
Seven of Nine: But not by restoring me to what I'd been; by helping me discover what I could become.

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.
