Trivia

This episode's opening scene, in which Harry Kim and Tom Paris hold an idle conversation before Chakotay calls them to the bridge, was filmed as part of Star Trek: Voyager: Death Wish (1996), but later edited out and reused here due to its generic nature. See more »

Goofs

When Fear is torturing Harry by making him old they are all standing towards the center of the yellow and red pinwheel painted floor, then Fear turns Harry into a baby and tosses him in the air a few times, when doing this a blue mat appears below them on the floor. Then Fear changes Harry back and the mat disappears. See more »

Conquering Fear
11 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since its creation by Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek has explored the fear and doubts of humanity. Whether it was the Klingons in the original series or the Borg in TNG, the series seems to manufacture new ways fear and doubt can manifest itself.

The Thaw takes no backseat to the discussion. The performance by Michael McKean as fear, as well as the filming sequences that accentuate his creepy entourage, are superbly frightening. The costume design sprouts from one of Jim Henson's nightmares. The Thaw should have been nominated for an Emmy for set/costume design.

The thorough, scientific analysis of fear by the Voyager crew gives an enlightening take on how and why fear exists. This scientific approach is what makes so many Voyager episodes stand out.

Classic Voyager.
