Goofs

Whilst examining Kellin in Sickbay, the Doctor visually diagnoses a "tibular fracture". The two bones in the lower leg are the tibia and the fibula. Any injury would therefore be either a "tibia fracture" or a "fibular fracture". There is no such thing as a "tibular fracture". See more »

Quotes

[Kellin is showing Tuvok and Seven her flight route in comparison to Voyager's]
Kellin: There, you see? Our ships traveled together for at least two weeks.
Seven of Nine: You could have falsified your navigational logs.
Tuvok: There's no proof that you ever came aboard Voyager.
Kellin: That's what I always liked about you two. Such unyielding logic. Such refreshing skepticism.

Very unusual.
23 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Virginia Madsen stars as Kellin in this very unusual episode of "Star Trek: Voyager". After she has a brief fight with another ship very close to Voyager, Kellin contacts Voyager and asks for help from Chakotay specifically. Oddly, however, Chakotay doesn't recognize her. Soon you learn why--she's from a species that doesn't want outside contact and they go to very extreme lengths to keep it that way. If anyone leaves the planet, they are tracked down and anyone having contact forgets and their computers are wiped! Kellin insists that she'd spend a lot of time on Voyager and then proves this DID occur. So why, then, does she return? Well, it seems that Mr. Super-Sexy, Chakotay, has stolen her heart and she's here to seek asylum.

The notion of a world that goes to such extremes to keep its existence private is pretty unique. My only complaint is that having a cop whose job it is to bring in runaways then falling in love and wanting to defect is a bit hard to believe. Additionally, she KILLED her own kind in escaping and no one seemed to remember this or care. Odd...but still a good episode.
