|Great Moment :
||It was nice that the Cytherians turned out to have good intentions after all, though I'm a bit dubious about the morality of their methods - essentially they do pretty much what Voyager's Caretaker did.
|Body Count :
||The shuttlecraft Feynman seen in this episode is named for physicist and Nobel laureate Richard P. Feynman.
