Episode Summary


Stardate: 50437.8
Voyager encounters a region of space named the Nekrit Expanse. Since Neelix has no knowledge about the space after this point, he tries to make himself useful to the crew by trying to obtain a map from an old friend named Wixiban, who in exchange, asks for Neelix's help with some less-than-reputable dealings.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Nitpick: In the final scene, Neelix is shown laying flat on a biobed in sickbay regaining consciousness when Janeway asks to speak to him alone. While she's speaking to him, he sits up and then stands up. When she's done, she dismisses him, and he leaves the sickbay. But he was a patient there and hadn't been medically discharged by the doctor. So it wasn't for her to dismiss him, especially so soon after he wakes up.

    • Nitpick: Tom Paris tells Neelix that the reason he wound up in prison, was because he didn't tell the truth when he got in trouble. But in the first episode of the Star Trek Voyager series, when Harry Kim asks him what he did to get himself in prison, he answers that it was just because he told the truth!

    • Nitpick: Although the space station is referred to as a major trading hub, no ships other than Voyager are seen orbiting or docked.

    • Nitpick: When Neelix enters the bridge, the turbolift doors don't close all the way. They close and bounce back open slightly.

  • NOTES (3)

    • The Biomimetic gel storage container # is L647X7. Writer Joe Menosky (and those he inspired) began including references to the number 47 in almost every episode of Star Trek since season four of The Next Generation. It is an in-joke, referring to The 47 Society at Pomona College in California, which Menosky attended.

    • This is the first appearance of Alexander Enberg as Vorik. This character was written for use in the episode "Blood Fever" but was introduced a few episodes earlier so that he would be familiar to viewers.

    • The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Hairstyling for a Series.
