Did You Know?


One Seinfeld (1989) episode featured Jason Alexander's (Kurros) character George Costanza contemplating naming his future child Seven (after Mickey Mantle's jersey number). See more »


When Kurros first appears to Captain Janeway in the mess hall, he identifies himself as an isomorphic projection and even states that he is, "not really here." Isomorphic, meaning 'similar to' and projection, meaning "the casting of an image" lends credence to his statement. Yet, somehow he manages to interact and even drink from Janeway's coffee, despite being only an intangible image of his true form. See more »


Tuvok: According to Seven of Nine, the Hazari pride themselves on honoring their agreements.
Harry Kim: Great. Bounty hunters with a work ethic.

Voyager is screwed and there is no escape...right?
28 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Voyager is attacked by the Hazari--bounty hunters who are a very formidable and who will most likely capture the ship sooner or later. Almost as if by miracle, the Captain is contacted by a being named Kurros (Jason Alexander) who offers to intervene and spare the ship...for a price. It seems that Kurros and his friends on his ship are a think tank--rather amoral beings who will do things to help various species if they are willing to meet their demands. In this case, they want a few things that seem trivial*--as well as Seven of Nine! It's not selling into slavery, exactly--they want to make her a part of their group. But there is definitely an interesting hidden agenda.

I liked the twist--even though I had anticipated it in this one. The show also ends extremely well and is quite satisfying. My only complaint is a minor one, as the speaking style of Alexander's character was mildly annoying.
