  • Trivia

    • Trivia: After Neelix dies, Seven says he can be reanimated using Borg nanoprobes to reverse the necrosis. This same technology and method is used to revive Kirk in The Return, a Star Trek novel by William Shatner.

    • Goof: When Paris bangs his spoon against his glass to get everyone's attention in the mess hall, he uses a tumbler, which is hardly the type of glass that could make the ringing sound that is heard. Furthermore, he is holding the glass by the rim, which would have muffled the sound, regardless of what type of glass is used.

  • Quotes

    • Seven: You're a peculiar creature, Neelix.
      Neelix: Thanks... I think.

    • (in Neelix's dream state)
      Seven: You will be assimilated.
      Neelix: No time for that now. Maybe later!

    • Chakotay: That little girl needs you, Neelix. Monsters in the replicator - who else on this ship can handle that?

    • Neelix: (shouting) I didn't ask to be brought back!
      Seven: You were dead at the time.

    • Seven: (Regarding the Kazon) Their biological and technological distinctiveness was unremarkable. They were not worthy of assimilation... Why assimilate a species that will detract from perfection?
