Did You Know?


With his appearance in this episode, Michael Ansara (Kang) has played the same character in three different live-action "Star Trek" series: Original Star Trek Star Trek: Day of the Dove (1968), Deep Space 9 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Blood Oath (1994) and Star Trek: Voyager (1995) Flashback. The only other actors to do so are Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), Armin Shimerman (Quark), John de Lancie (Q), Richard Poe (Gul Evek) and Mark Allen Shepherd (Morn). See more »


Tuvok tells Janeway that he was 29 years old during the Khitomer incident; adding 80 years makes him 109 years old in the present. This is middle age for a Vulcan (Sarek, for example, was 103 in the original series episode "Journey to Babel"), but Tuvok is obviously much younger than that. See more »


[first lines]
[Neelix has made Tuvok a glass of juice]
Neelix: Enthraxic citrus peel, orange juice with just a hint of papalla seed extract. An experimental blend.
Lieutenant Tuvok: The success rate of your culinary experiments has not been high.
Neelix: Ensign Golwat tried some yesterday, and she thought it was delicious. In fact, she had a second glass, and she never has seconds.
Lieutenant Tuvok: Ensign Golwat is Bolian. Her tongue has a cartilaginous lining. It would protect her against even the most corrosive acid.

Not Much Fun
21 August 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When we see George Takei and Grace Lee Whitney, we may think this will be great fun. The problem is that they are given little to do. Takei is now the ship's captain and Whitney is a nondescript officer. The plot involves another Vulcan meld. Because Tuvok is, himself, rather boring, his actions and responses are not all that sparkling. He begins to suffer from something stuck in his brain and a recurring waking nightmare of his inability to save a girl from falling off a precipice. It is all taken care of in medical gobbledygook and signs off in a bland way. Michael Ansara plays a Klingon.
