  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: In the episode "Demon" when Voyager landed on the demon planet, the duplicated Harry Kim explains that now that the "silver blood" has become sentient, they want to populate the planet. The entire crew agrees to allow themselves to be duplicated but the ship was not. At the end of the episode, the duplicate crew is shown standing on the planet as Voyager takes off and flies away. So how did the duplicate crew end up in space on a duplicate Voyager?

    • Nitpick: B'Elanna is visibly breathing after dying.

    • Nitpick: In the very last lines of the episode, when Janeway orders Paris to resume course, he refers to her as "sir", a term she previously stated she does not like to be addressed as -- preferring either "Captain", or "ma'am" in a crunch.

    • Nitpick: When the duplicate Voyager attempts to land on the Class-Y planet, Janeway orders "Red Alert" rather than the normal Condition Blue for landing. The lighting, however, goes blue, suggesting that they are, in fact, at Condition Blue.

    • Nitpick: Even as the crew's appearance, and even the ship, degrade drastically due to the molecular instability, their uniforms remain in perfect condition.

  • Quotes

    • Kim: Seven, drop out of warp.
      Seven: The engine controls are fused.
      Kim: Then unfuse them!
      Seven: Without an isolytic converter, I cannot comply.

    • Paris: How's my old lady?
      B'Elanna: Well enough to break your nose if you call me that again.

    • (Janeway is presiding the wedding)
      Janeway: B'Elana has asked me to forgo the rigors of Klingon painstiks in favor of a more traditional ceremony.
      Kim: They're saving the painstiks for the honeymoon.

    • (after Seven catches the wedding bouquet)
      The Doctor: Congratulations!
      Seven: For what?
      Tuvok: You may not want to know.

    • "Demon" Janeway: There's only one thing I know how to be, Chakotay, and that's Kathryn Janeway.
      "Demon" Chakotay: I'd like to think I know Captain Janeway pretty well myself, and as much as she'd like to get her crew home, I don't think she'll be willing to kill them in the process.

    • (During Tom and B'Elanna's wedding ceremony)
      Seven: Given the volatile nature of their relationship, one would predict homicide rather than matrimony.
      Tuvok: When it comes to affairs of the human heart, it is wise to look beyond logic.
