Did You Know?


The episode title is not spoken, instead it is referenced by the pianist in Stardust City; she is playing "Solace" by Scott Joplin. Joplin was - in his day - known as "The King of Rag", as he was predominantly known for his ragtime compositions. See more »


At around 40 minutes, Rios says "Okay, jefe." Picard responds with "Old man indeed." In Spanish, "jefe" means "chief" (or "boss" or "leader" or similar). "Old man" would be "viejo" or "anciano". Yet Rios does not mention this misunderstanding.

(The word is misspelled as "hefe" in the closed captions. "Hefe" does not seem to be a Spanish word, whereas "jefe" is pronounced the same, and makes sense in context.) See more »


Seven of Nine: After they brought you back from your time in the Collective, do you honestly feel that you've regained your humanity?
Jean-Luc Picard: Yes.
Seven of Nine: All of it?
Jean-Luc Picard: No... But we're both working on it, aren't we?
Seven of Nine: Every damn day of my life.

A really weird episode of "Firefly". Oh... wait...
20 February 2020 | by MurometsSee all my reviews

Almost forgot that this is Star Trek, you know. And it seems like Seven of Nine is into women now. Yup. Chakotay realy screwed things up, it seems. I guess it's progressive and inclusive. Yay...
