Trivia

Strangely, we first learn Kellin's name when Janeway calls her and Chakotay to the bridge. Her introducing herself is not depicted onscreen. See more »

Goofs

Kellin did visit Voyager before, so the doctor should still have some memories left. He is not sensitive for the pheromones. See more »

Quotes

Seven of Nine: Commander Chakotay's face became flushed as he spoke with her. What does that signify?
Tuvok: I'd rather not engage in speculation. It is a dangerous pastime.

Virginia Madsen appears as an alien whose biochemistry renders her instantly forgettable by anyone she meets
26 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not the best Voyager episode ever produced. Cmmdr. Chakotay falls in love with an alien (Virginia Madsen) who possesses a unique physiology

  • her pheromones wipe all memory of her presence from the mind of


anyone she meets within twenty-four hours. "When you live a covert existence, you develop technology to enhance it." This episode is over-sentimental, even by Star Trek standards, however the acting standards and other production values are typically high. There's not much in the way of action, the entire episode revolves around Kellin (Virginia Madsen) trying to get Chakotay to fall in love with her after he has already done so once and then forgotten all about it. One wonders why she bothered.
