Trivia: Tuvok states that he was born on Stardate 38774 at the Volcanis Lunar Colony.
Trivia: Janeway, Tuvok and Torres seem to undergo a minor assimilation relative to other drones. For example, they do not get their arms amputated for the tool module, or their eyes removed in favor of implants.
Nitpick: When Janeway tells Torres to download the virus, this is in fact an error. If they are to give the virus to the Borg, that would mean upload, not download. This error is made several times throughout the series.
Janeway: If you really wanted to negotiate, you'd visit Unimatrix Zero. You found a way to send drones. Surely you could go yourself. Or are you afraid that a taste of individuality might make you realize it is something worth fighting for?
Borg Queen: Spatial Grid 091. Sphere 878. Complement: 11,000 drones. Only one is silent, but I have no choice. I must silence all of them. (she initiates Sphere 878's self-destruct, causing it to explode) I know how this must upset you, Captain. As a Starfleet officer, you value all life. Even drones. How many more are you willing to sacrifice? Thousands? Millions?
Alien Child: They said you want to assim... assima...
Borg Queen: Assimilate you. Yes, but that's nothing to be afraid of. You like having friends, don't you? Assimilation turns us all into friends. In fact, it brings us so close together we can hear each other's thoughts.
Alien Child: Is that fun?
Borg Queen: Yes, it's fun.
Janeway: I don't compromise with Borg.
This episode marks the last appearance of Susanna Thompson as the Borg Queen on Star Trek: Voyager or indeed on any Star Trek.
