The Doctor: According to my tests, he's quite correct when he says that he possesses Tuvok's knowledge and expertise. He also possesses Tuvok's irritating sense of intellectual superiority and Neelix's annoying ebullience. I would be very grateful to you if you were to assign him some duty...

The Doctor: Any duty, somewhere else.

The ultimate in irony....and Janeway gets to play god!
15 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Although you never hear Tuvok say aloud that he hates Neelix, his body language throughout the series clearly indicates that he can't stand the guy. As for Neelix, it's as if he goes out of his way to annoy Tuvok--so this episode is awfully ironic as well as funny.

When the show begins, Neelix and Tuvok are on a planet and when they beam back, their DNA is scrambled and instead of one begin, they are now one! It's a hybrid that now calls itself Mr. Tuvix--and he's certainly like both of them. And, in my opinion, he's the best of both. The Doctor and other Voyager staff are stumped about how to change them back and repeated experiments fail. It looks like everyone will just have to get used to the new and much improved Tuvix! However, when a way to separate them finally is developed weeks later, Tuvix wants nothing to do with this--he wants to live. And, oddly, Janeway decides to play god and force a separation.

This is a good episode, though I do wish they'd just had Tuvix remain as he was! Interesting and worth seeing.
