- It is not known why the Voyager crew did not make any attempts to rescue and free the other prisoners, particularly the Talaxian who offered information and assistance to the captured Voyager crew. They appear to have been simply abandoned, and Voyager continued on their journey home, despite Starfleet's obligation to offer humanitarian aid. This could be explained away by the Prime Directive's non-interference policy even if it meant the prisoners faced death via organ extraction/processing. That said, it is fair to assume that the other prisoners were rescued, even though this exercise does not appear on film. Similar scenarios can be found in season 3's "The Chute" and "Displaced".
Blah blah blah nitpick. – Morder 06:02, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
- As well as:
- When two of the Vidiian guards attempt to take the Human Torres to an organ extraction room, they claim they are taking her away for a 'shower and a hot meal'. This may be a reference to Nazi death camps from World War II, where those who were to be murdered were told they were going to have a shower and/or a meal.
- Additionally, when the Vidiian guards come to take Durst, Paris attempts to intercede, stating that he is the senior officer; however, Durst is a full Lieutenant, whereas Paris is a Lieutenant JG. Paris in facts appears to have taken charge despite being junior in rank to Durst. Although this could be explained because Paris a bridge officer and always attends the senior staff meetings.
- Too much guess work, not enough facts. -- Alan 20:55, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
- The inability of the Human Torres' cells to process proteins would seem to be a recessive genetic disorder, only exposed due to the fact that both versions were by definition haploid or diploid but completely homozygous.
- Nitpick/speculative, per MA:NIT, we don't make comparisons to reality. -- 31dot 22:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
B'Elanna Torres' Klingon counterpart Edit
- Yes, except when a photo double was used. -- Alan 20:55, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Similarity to a TOS-episode I can't remember the name of Edit
- Isn't the theme of this episode somewhat similar to the one in TOS where Cpt. Kirk is divided into on "evil" and one "good" half? It's not exactly the same, but it still could be worth mentioning, I think. Any other opinions? --Marten1000 16:22, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
