Episode order and pattern Edit
- This episode takes place before the previous one, "Imperfection", but was swapped in airdate order to maintain the pattern of "episode 1 Janeway-story, episode 2 Seven-story, episode 3 Torres-story" that had been informally established by Voyager's 4th, 5th and 6th seasons.
I've always been under the impression that Imperfection was suppossed to air two weeks after Drive but was aired first due to a screw up at UPN. Can someone confirm or deny this? – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk).
Mark Rolston? Edit
I'm not sure on this, but this guy getting up from the table here looks a lot like Mark Rolston. If it was him it would make him one of the few who have been in 3 different Trek series. -- Suso 15:52, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
- I'm strongly leaning towards no, personally I see the resemblance but don't think they look enough alike to be the same person. On top of that, I would expect them to give him a speaking role, and not just be an extra at this point in his career. - AJ Halliwell 17:41, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
- This is definitly NOT Mark Rolston. Sorry for you. – Tom 00:31, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
I just removed the following from background information, as I believe that it's speculation - depends on exactly what speed full impulse is.
- Paris says that the course is 2.3 billion km long and that ships are limited to impulse speeds. Even at full impulse the whole way through it would take 8.5 hours to complete the course, though it seems to take a lot less time than that.
I don't know if there was a definite consistency with impulse speed, as opposed to warp speeds and times taken to cover certain distances. If that makes sense... DaveSubspace Message 23:25, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
Warp Maneuvering Edit
I remember it mentioned in the article for the episode "Fury" that it was the only reference to the inability to maneuver at Warp Speed. "Faster than light, no left or right" as quoted from Tom. However I believe that it was also mentioned (at least in passing) during this episode. "Warp drive is fine if you like going fast IN A STRAIGHT LINE but to me that's just physics not flying". -MAX- 00:43, 24 May 2009 (EDT)
