Did You Know?


Quark (from DS9), played by Armin Shimerman, is mentioned in this episode (as "Quark of Ferenginar"). Among the businesses in Freecloud, one is named after Quark; another is named Mr. Mot's Hair Emporium (after Mot, the barber from the Enterprise D). 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: He was the closest thing I had to kin. Like me Icheb was a former Borg, rescued and reclaimed by Voyager in the Delta Quadrant, that's why she wanted him. His parts were... .good business. Bejazel had his implants stripped out, without anesthetic, without even the minor mercy of death. We met her on Fenris, she was posing as one of us as someone trying to help. She knew about Icheb from me.

User Reviews

Where is the morality? Where is hope? What happened to Star Trek?
21 February 2020 | by network-561-589522See all my reviews

I don't like where this show is headed. There is Too much unnecessary violence. Beheading? Showing a person's eye getting ripped out? What's wrong with the creators?

Star Trek has always been about telling a positive vision of the future. Episodes had a moral, they had a STORY to tell.

Episodes like the inner light, the first duty, even family reunion. They all told a story, each of them had a message.

This show is just a dark vision of the future.

And I must say: I don't enjoy watching this anymore.
