Ok, i just finished watching Tuvix, and at the end, they beam him apart into Tuvok and Neelix. They stated earlier in the episode though, and this was the whole point of how and why it happened in the first place, that they were merged with alien orchids. So at the end, why didnt they beam tuvix into Tuvok, Neelix, and a flower, also wearing an operations uniform, in between them. Or did they just leave the plant genetic material in both of them?--Cyno01 16:40, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
- It's one of those instances where having something like that happen would be too confusing to those people who don't actually care that much. :P – – Tranchera 14:48, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
You know a summary is bad when a bio on the central person is in better detail than the general episode summary. --Lord Hyren 21:20, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
I removed the following note, that has lacked citation for over a year now:
- UPN had issues with the ending to the episode, and wanted Tuvix to willingly sacrifice himself in order to bring back Tuvok and Neelix. Michael Piller managed to persuade the network that the episode would have no impact if it ended with Tuvix surrendering his life without a fight, and the ending remained as originally written.
Is it reasonable to open a discussion about Janeway's unlimited self-aggrandisement in deciding to kill Tuvix who integrated the personalities of Tuvok and Neelix? In "Phage", Janeway refused to take back Neelix' lungs by force, because she didnt't feel free to kill a Vidiian (who himself took them by force) in order to save Neelix. Probably, my moral compass is way off, but I don't kill someone who came to existence by accident just to restore what I feel is the correct state of facts. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk).
- I'm sorry, but article talk pages are for discussing article changes only, and are not for general discussion of the subject. Specific questions can be asked at the Reference Desk, while open-ended discussion should take place at a website geared towards that. 31dot (talk) 08:48, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
