Returning from an away mission, the Delta Flyer is boarded. Tuvok is assaulted by a cloaked alien from a xenophobic race called the Ba'Neth.

Did You Know?


This episode mirrors the events in Star Trek: Voyager: Tuvix (1996) that involved Neelix and Tuvok becoming symbiogenetically joined as one entity. Tuvok's flair for cooking is reminiscent of Tuvix's cooking abilities, which the crew felt were better than those of Neelix. Tuvok's unwillingness to go through with the medical procedure that will restore him to his former self also mirrors Tuvix's reluctance to return to his former individual selves. See more »


At the start Neelix and Tuvok are on the way back to the Voyager so they should be in space. As the camera zooms in on Nelix one can clearly see the door of the shuttle bay in the background. See more »

Tuvok: Sundays.
Neelix: I beg your pardon?
Tuvok: I have given further consideration to your riddle, regarding the ensign who survived by consuming the dates from his calendar. It occurs to me that he could also have eaten the "Sunda-y-es".
Neelix: [intrigued] That's a very clever answer, Mr. Vulcan. - But it's not very logical, is it?
Tuvok: [ponders this] No... it's not.

Which Way Would You Have Wanted It?
10 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Tim Russ as Tuvok does a nice performance as the overly serious Vulcan, suddenly bereft of his basic personality and being. An assault by an alien force has damaged him, and he must be retaught. He becomes childlike and joyous, but it is not him. Neelix shows great compassion, but must make a huge sacrifice. This is quite touching without being maudlin.
