Trivia

The plot follows a template previously used in numerous films. Jeri Taylor remarked, "It's a classic formula, Three Men and a Baby (1987) [for example]." In fact, the formula dates back to the Western movie 3 Godfathers (1948). See more »

Goofs

Neelix apologized to Tom for throwing hair pasta in his lap. However, he had thrown the pasta on Tom's chest, not his lap. See more »

Despite Neelix's annoying jealousy, this is a pretty good episode.
12 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, Neelix is doing what he usually does on the show during season 2--he's VERY jealous and very much like an overly controlling boyfriend. However, this is the first time that he actually might be right--after accusing Paris of horning in on his girl in the past, Paris is starting to have some feelings towards her. But, he's too honorable to act on these feelings. However, Neelix is the jealous idiot type and begins a physical fight with Paris in the mess hall. Naturally, that means that the Captain will soon ask the two of them to go on a mission!

The mission involves the pair going to a nasty planet to see if there is any food. Unfortunately, the mismatched pair are stuck there--and an alien ship attacks Voyager. What's next is pretty clever and cute-- and it makes the show worth seeing.

This isn't exactly a brilliant episode but it is not stuck on the ship and there is an alien--things you just didn't see enough of in the series. Worth seeing.
