This episode shares similarities with the 1976 movie Logan's Run. In Logan's Run, individuals attempt to escape to Sanctuary from their "idyllic" post-apocalyptic world. These "runners" are hunted by Sandmen like Logan, the titular character, who finds himself running. In this episode of Voyager, Kellin arrives on Voyager seeking asylum from her people. She is being pursued by her former colleagues. She, too, had once pursued fugitives from her homeworld. See more
