Did You Know?


The wormhole Kes flies through during her flight simulation is re-used footage of the wormhole from Star Trek: Voyager: Eye of the Needle (1995). See more »


During the teaser, after Paris says to Kes, "I never said the simulation was over," they see on the viewscreen images of Jem'Hadar fighter ships from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Since Voyager has been cut off from the Alpha Quadrant since some time before anyone from the Federation first saw any Jem'Hadar in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Jem'Hadar, there is no way they could have Jem Hadar images in their databanks.

Neelix: I feel I owe you an apology.
Tom Paris: No, you don't.
Neelix: I had no right to push that pasta in your lap.
Tom Paris: Well - think of it this way: it saved me from having to eat it.

Neelix is Jealous again
6 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Over the last few episodes Neelix has been getting more and more jealous as Tom is seeing quite a lot of Kes. Things come to a head and the two end up covered in food after a brawl in the mess. As they are rolling around on the floor they find themselves summoned to see Captain Janeway and ordered to go on an away mission which needs Tom's flying skills and Neelix's knowledge of Delta Quadrant flora to help restock the ship's dwindling food supplies. When they crash land they find themselves trapped on a planet with a hostile environment. Seeking shelter they seal themselves in a cave where they find alien eggs. One of them hatches and they must take it back into the hostile atmosphere if it is to survive. Back on Voyager Kes is feeling bad that two people she cares about are fighting over her and as they are missing on the planet she might not see them again. The crew work to find a way to get in to a position where they may be able to beam the away team from but this isn't made easy when an alien ship turns up and opens fire on them.

I was pleased that the story concerning Neelix's jealousy finally came to a head and appeared to be resolved. While Tom and Neelix were the main characters I think the best acting came from Jennifer Lien in the scene where Kes is talking to the Doctor about her concerns about Tom and Neelix. I liked how Tom and Neelix worked together to save the alien hatchling and ended up talking their problems over even if the alien didn't look very believable.
