Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Nitpick: Tuvok is chosen to onto the maglev carriage's roof to check for problems because he can breathe a more rarefied atmosphere at that high altitude. However, a lack of oxygen is only one of the problems he should be facing. The maglev carriage is stated as being over 30 km above the planet's surface, so the temperature would be well below zero (on Earth, that altitude would have a temperature of -60 deg Fahrenheit or lower). Add in the wind chill, and Tuvok should be having extreme difficulty in using his tricorder because of numb fingers, and get a severe case of frostbite on his exposed skin (such as his fingers, ears, nose, etc) within one minute.

    • Nitpick: When Tuvok climbs onto the roof of the maglev, the wind is blowing strongly toward the right. Tuvok leans toward the right to counter this, when he should be leaning to the left.

    • Nitpick: During the ascend of the tether, the crew experienced problems with the lack of oxygen. The situation should've gotten even worse, when Neelix opened the door to save Tuvok (and letting most of the oxygen escape).

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Neelix: I've been assigned to Lieutenant Tuvok's team, and no matter what I do, I can't seem to please him.
      The Doctor: Vulcans are notoriously difficult to impress. Mr. Tuvok seldom acknowledges my brilliance.

    • Tuvok: It is illogical to dwell on situations beyond your control. It will only serve to heighten your anxiety, which, if I may say so, is heightened enough.
      Sklar: Oh. Well, thank you for the reassurance.

    • Lillias: Where are you going? You don't even know what you're looking for.
      Tuvok: I am looking for Mr. Neelix's instinct. Perhaps it is marked.

    • Neelix: You always have to get in that last word, don't you?
      Tuvok: I am simply responding to your erroneous statement.
      Neelix: Something tells me you just hate to lose an argument.
      Tuvok: Losing is irrelevant.
      Neelix: See what I mean?
      Tuvok: No. I do not.
