  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Janeway: In a part of space where there are few rules, it's more important than ever that we hold fast to our own. In a region where shifting allegiances are commonplace we have to have something stable to rely on. And we do. The principles and ideals of the Federation. As far as I'm concerned, those are the best allies we could have.

    • Janeway: (to Chakotay) This isn't a democracy, Chakotay. I can't run this ship by consensus.

    • Culluh: I won't have a woman dictate terms to me!
      Janeway: Culluh, I found the idea of an alliance with you distasteful. I was willing to explore the possibility, but now I see my instincts were dead-on.

    • Chakotay: Make a deal, an alliance.
      Janeway: With the Kazon?!
      Chakotay: With one of their factions, or two. If we have the Ogla and the Relora as our allies, the other would be afraid to touch us.
      Janeway: Nothing we've been through with the Kazon would lead me to believe that they're trustworthy! I can't imagine making a deal with them!
      Chakotay: With all due respect, maybe that's because your imagination is limited by Starfleet protocols. As Captain, you're responsible for making the decision in the best interest of the crew, and I think you have to ask yourself if you're doing that.

  • Notes

    • Culluh was originally going to die at the end of the episode. Actor Anthony De Longis begged to have his character shown just clinging to life at the end, leaving them the option of bringing his character back, and was told by Jeri Taylor that the script had already been changed, to his great relief.
