Alias = real name? Edit

I have a question. In the episode "Workforce" Chakotay approached Janeway and said "My name is Amal Kotay but my friends call me Chakotay." What I'm wondering is: could this have been his real name? I don't re-call the episode saying it was an allias. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rlg1966 (talk • contribs).

It was an alias. By wording his statement that way, he was attempting to see if Janeway remembered who he was. 31dot (talk) 18:45, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Species? Edit

Can anyone identify his species? It's not stated or scripted, and I was curious if this appearance has shown up before. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 13:32, October 27, 2017 (UTC)
